On April 24th, Finnish symphonic technical death metal band Whorion will release debut full-length album "The Reign of the 7th Sector" through Inverse Records. This marks the band's first release since the "Fall of Atlas" EP back in January of 2014.
"The Reign of the 7th Sector" was mixed & mastered with Anssi Kippo from Astia Studio (Ensiferum, Norther, Children of bodom etc.). Vocalist / guitarist Ep Mäkinen had this to say about the upcoming release:
"We continued where we left on Atlas release and worked our sound forward. 7th Sector has more deadlier guitar work, higher tempos, bigger orchestra arrangement and vocals are pushed out with more power. I wanted to create goliath compared to Atlas without losing identity. Theme of the lyrics grow and leads the listener in the middle of universal destruction, ground zero. Story builds up and continues all the way to the end." More...

Finland's Whorion has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new member:
"We like to announce that Ari Nieminen (Dauntless, ex-Hanging Garden) has joined the lineup of Whorion!
"Forces grow strong and we have a powerful lineup as we enter the studio next month to record the debut Fall Of Atlas EP. We were supposed to release the lyric video tomorrow but since the studio is behind the corner, we want to push the video for later.
"We don't want release anything that is half done and since Ari joined the band, we want to publish the song with full force and killer sounds rather than poor pre-production. This weekend we'll upload sneak peak jamming video from the songs. A starter for a main course."
