Formed in 2016, Sectile are a five-piece prog metal band based in Dublin, Ireland. Combining the melodic sound of classic prog, entwined with traditional heavy metal, laced with captivating technical arrangements, the band make their return in February with the release of their new album, Falls Apart.

Lifted from the album, which the band are putting out independently, the band have released a new single, “Black Cloud”, which we’re premiering right here.

Check out our premiere of “Black Cloud” by Sectile to get a taster of the new album:

Speaking about the new single, Sectile had this to say: “We feel Black Cloud fairly competently summarises some of our characteristics as a band. It has passages of dark atmosphere, interesting rhythms, heavy riffs, and catchy vocal hooks to top it all off.”

Sectile release “Black Cloud” on February 4, 2020 and you can grab up your copy from their Bandcamp Page. The band release their new album, Falls Apart, on February 25th, 2020.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
