Die Sektor - The Void Trilogy
Electro-Industrial, Dubstep Die Sektor is simply a force to be reckoned with. Ever since their debut album "To Be Fed Upon" premiered in 2006, the electro-industrial outfit has been climbing ranks and charts, wooing over dozens upon dozens of people, and simply smashing out one hit album after the next. The start of their "Void Trilogy" would begin in 2011 with "Applied Structure In A Void", which would then expand into another two albums after, including 2012's "The Final Electro Solution" and 2013's "(-)existence(+)". It was that third album in the trilogy that saw the band move to DWA as their home, and it was only two years after they moved their that DWA would find a way to please Die Sektor fans the world over.

"The Void Trilogy" is a collected and expanded edition of Die Sektor's last three albums made with dedication and love. This is coming from the owner of a physical copy of "The Void Trilogy", and my is it gorgeous. The fat DVD structured case houses the CDs perfectly and compensates for the twenty page booklet of both art and lyrics that comes with it. It's a fan's wet dream all in one box. 

The expanded edition includes not only all three previous albums, but additional unreleased, B-side tracks from each one of the albums. In total, you're getting six more tracks from the three albums that have never seen the light of day until now. And, when there's more Die Sektor out there, there's nothing to complain about. 

I think the biggest and most appreciated addition to this box set would be the fourth CD titled "From Out Of The Void". This CD contains eleven tracks from the previous three albums that have been reworked and remixed by Die Sektor themselves. I have no problem in saying that all of these songs either stand up to the original mixes, and some even bypass them by a long shot. The most pleasant surprise on the fourth CD would be the Guitar version of 'Beneath', as it features Norwegian black metal band Khold. If you can imagine what Die Sektor and Khold would sound like together, and if you'd imagine that whatever evil and cynical baby they made would cause anyone to have a meltdown, you'd be right. The song is killer and lovely, and I've been spinning it for quite a bit ever since I got my copy. 

If I haven't drooled enough over this release, then I don't know what more I should say. You know Die Sektor, you love them, and if you don't then you're living life wrong. And, for four CDs the box set only costs $45, which is damned cheap if you ask me. The digital version is even cheaper, only weighing in at $35. 

If you've never picked up a release from Die Sektor, and are looking to start your collection, you should look no further than "The Void Trilogy". 50 songs in total including unreleased tracks. What are you waiting for?

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
