Finnish Symphonic Technical Death Metal band Whorion will release their debut full length  album The Reign of the 7th Sector through Inverse Records.  Details for the album can be seen below. This marks the bands first release since the Fall of Atlas EP which was released in January of 2014.

After changing lineups since forming in 2009 and through years of composing, training & mastering new styles of playing material Whorion have come together to spawn what it is today, metal that will crack bones, while displaying powerful symphonic elements to create a feeling that the listener is sucked into the dark matter of space, slowly waiting for the worlds end…

The Reign of the 7th Sector was mixed & mastered with Anssi Kippo from Astia Studio (Ensiferum, Norther, Children of bodom etc.).

No intro (hooray!) this goes straight in for the kill and 'Flesh Of Gods' is one helluva opening track, brutal drumming and vocals, great guitar work and nice but understated orchestration.

Thats the way this one goes, song after song then we come to 'Gates Of Time' a full on orchestrated piece that sounds like music from some epic sword and sorcery movie, really good and a total surprise.

The next song 'Immaculate' is a brilliant symphonic death metal masterpiece, this one has everything from both genres mixed perfectly.

Rating 8/10
For fans of: Dimmu Borgir, Miellnir, Ars Moriendi, Opera Diabolicus
