ΨBiography

Sectarian is a Dutch metalband formed in the summer of ‘95 under the name of KICKSHAW. The band, back then, primarily played covers of bands like Metallica en Iron Maiden. After a few changes in line-up the band got the chance to record their debut-album in 1999, containing only self written material. The result came out in march of 2000 entitled ‘When darkness draws near”. By then the name of the band was already replaced by SECTARIAN. On this album the variety of musical influences (mostly metal) of the bandmembers can be heard. Styles of metal that vary from thrash metal to death metal. 

A few months after the debut-CD came out Pascal Bastings left the band due to differences in musical conception and the musical course that was to be followed. SECTARIAN again had no front man. A temporary replacement was found in the person of Mike Scheijen who left SECTARIAN again soon to work with his own band again (37 Stabwoundz)

In December of 2000 SECTARIAN made a slight change in course, new musical influences were added in the person of Rob Besselink who took the keyboard for his account from this day on. In the beginning of 2001 SECTARIAN again went to search for a new front man that was found in the person of Raoul Pinxt. His style of singing holds the middle between Crimson Glory en Nevermore. 

SECTARIAN’s today’s style is still trash-/ death metal but with a slight melodic flavour. The new musical contributions have the result that the band nowadays can be found in the line of Testament, The Haunted , Crimson Glory, Nevermore, etc.
