This band rocked my world sometime in mid-February. I tried making some noise about their brilliant creation called Black Future but nothing less than a review will do justice to this thrash combo from Arizona. Vektor made an album that combines heaviness and melody in a new, fresh way. The dudes can shred (oh yes!), but it's not wankery. They can play beautiful acoustic passages and incorporate ambient breaks, and not for one second do they sound boring. They throw in prog and black, and their thrash is so natural and unpretentious, it's hard to believe. And the vocals… are… sick. David Disanto mixes classic black metal singing with some occasional unearthly high-pitched screams making his voice undeniably recognizable.

Yawn. Nothing here we haven't seen on Puppets Sell, But Who's Reigning? Exodus did all this way better 70 years ago. I say that because Vektor are beating the proverbial thrash metal horse to death.

Or are they?

Rating: 9 I love this album more with every listen. At first the vocals put me off, but I became accustomed to his voice fast and now I couldn't imagine them with anyone else. Black Future, as a whole, reminds me of a mix between Destruction and Exmortus, and is one of my top albums from this year.

Rating: 9 The voice is crazy, especially in Accelerating Universe,
I love it!

Rating: 9 Excellent album. I had to get used to the vocals, but as of now - they're staying in my stereo for sure

Rating: 10 Definitely one of the best albums of 2009. Excellent technical metal. Some musical bits and pieces are somehow related to early technical thrash bands such as Deathrow and mighty Voivod and the vocals sometimes remind me of Rob Urbinati of Sacrifice. Despite of all that Vektor is an original band and definitely not a bunch of copycats and to me they don't sound like they are a part of this retro thrash boom - most importantly these guys don't try to sound like the album was recorded in the late Eighties. That's a good thing. I expect more great albums from this really promising band in the future.

Rating: 10 This one sounds very good. but i don't see anywhere the problem with the vocals... they are just fine!
Troy Killjoy - 08.03.2010 at 18:12  
  Vocals completely turned me off of this one.
Dark Blood - 09.07.2010 at 01:30  
Rating: 8 I gotta get this. I like what I hear on their Myspace playlist, vocals sound like Legion of the Damned.

Rating: 10 This album has plunged me back into the psychotic world of THRASH. A better release than the new Nevermore, and the new Exodus. (imo)

Rating: 10 In my opinion this has got to be one of the top albums to come from the whole "New Wave Of Thrash Metal". Top 5 easily.

Yeah up there with.. Citizen Brain (Gama Bomb), Boundless (Assaulter), Human (Cautiva), Time Is Up (Havok), Breathing The Fire (Skeletonwitch) also probably World Gone Dead (Lich King) and Waking Into Nightmares (Warbriner) and don't forget Eternal Domination by (Suicidal Angels) oh shit almost forgot Evil Never Dies (Toxic Holocaust). Well after all.. theres alot of good albums in the new wave of thrash metal

Rating: 9 Damn this good! love the crazy vocals, and the song "Accelerating Universe" reminds me of Metallica in a way or another.

Modern thrash albums lack a lot of reverb effects too.


Imo, it's a general weakness quite common in every genre when it comes to new albums.
That's one of the worst problem I have with modern productions. I like when the sound has some kind of reverberation.

Rating: 9 One of the albums you NEED to listen at least once in your life. One of my favourite albums of all time.

Rating: 10 Man this album is good! I was putting off listening to this because I had so much other music to get too but decided it was time to give it a go and my head just exploded...Can't wait to get my hands on outer isolation and any future Vektor releases. The voice at first I thought was a guitar because of how high he went now a instant favorite
/5

Rating: 9 At last i have this album! has been difficult to find it, seems that they have re-released it again =).
Vikcen - 25.05.2013 at 17:28  
Rating: 9 Well, it is good, but i find Outer Isolation better structured, formed, ultimately better composition, better production and more catchy. This is more blackened, while Outer Isolation is more thrasher =).

I thought OI was so average in comparison to this. Like everything you just said should actually be applied here instead of OI.

Applies totally everything in your humble opinion of course.

Kinda stale on OI. The rougher production on this one made it sound a lot cooler, and IMO, better.
