I would love Vektor's thrash metal. Perhaps one of the reasons is the singing of David DiSanto, like the great Chuck Schuldiner's. But without considering this resemblance and the inspiration that Death's style had on Vektor, the adventure of these Arizona metalheads is interesting to me. From the first album, entitled Black Future, I was attracted to them; but five years doesn't seem like a bad time for the flying saucer known as Vektor to fly towards its third manifesto. If you think the main reason for the darkness of space is the non-reflectivity of light, it is necessary to travel to space with the octopus of Vektor; if you think the void needs to charge and recharge, it's necessary to listen to the tenth track. It seems Vektor traveled to space to see the astrological signs and the conclusion of our planet Earth, a conclusion, of course, of a void-world that made itself and charged up, but at last, there was no choice but to recharge/discharge it.

Well, you mentioned the "shitty vocals" in a comment before. That seems to be your primary criticism on this website.


Yeah, when they're truly bad, they can spoil me a whole album. That's why it's my primary criticism.


Then it is a relief to you, you will not have to listen more music from their next albums in the future.

I havent listened to this yet, but I hope that this time they improved the vocals. The music of theirs is ok, though nothing too special.

The vocals is exactly the same, i don't think he can change his vocal so much in the future, believe me he is not James Hetfield.

Well thats a shame then, because I seriously find the vocals to be cringeworthy at times. But if the music at least kicks ass then I'm happy.


Think like if he was an alien In my opinion he is very good, with quite vocal registers.

-too many riffs, xzibit would say "hey my man I put riffs in your riffs" <-- funny
-voivod ripoff
-bad vocals, so weird and bad (too many riffs overtop vocals also)
-[vague negative criticism]
-musicians too passionate, too much talent/too many riffs

overall.. this album is pretty decent but way too many riffs and no zest or dynamic integers in the songs, 3.2/10

It takes a lot to make a song
A pinch of cello and a gong
A scoop of mates to add the sounds
A dash of love to make the rounds
And you've got
Too many riffs
TOO MANY RIFFS

By far their more COMPLETE album. Negatives that it has less hits than the others and i'd like it to be... 63 instead of 73 minutes... 2-3 years ago i'd give it easilly a 10. I dont rate that high the albums nowadays so this is a very strong 9.... As for the "possitives" they are sooo many, the band is extremely mature, amazing riffs and solos, huge variety in songwriting, some great moments of "innovation"...

Psychotropia, Pillars of Sand, Charging the void, Recharging the void and LCD, all have astonishing parts....

Shouldn't the vocals classify this band as a technical death metal band more in line with Atheist than a thrash band?

When vocals have come into consideration in setting up a genre?!

Vektor is fully-fledged technical thrash metal band. Nothing more or nothing less than that.

This album is my first exposure to Vektor and I'm very impressed. Favorite track so far: Recharging the Void.
I also think it has a death metal-ish sound to it, which is a good thing... Most really good music won't classify in to a specific, limited genre.

This is my first Vektor album. And everything in it is impressive, from the vocals to the drums. I can listen to this album all day (especially while reading hard science fiction like Asimov).

After 6 months being on my playlist I just bought CD and hoodie. This is the best thrash album since Kreator's "Coma of Souls" (1990)

I think I like this album a little more than it deserves simply because it's such an exhausting listen that I don't replay it much. It's such a long and intense album, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but as a result it's not even close to being my most played album of the year (that goes to Winter's Gate). IMO this is probably the album that best shows how much metal has improved over the years, and definitely my favorite album of 2016.

Way too long for its own good. I couldn't even finish it all.

But did you enjoy what you heard? I would recommend their first album a million times over this

It's a little better but still nothing special for me. I just don't like thrash metal in general.

Oh, me neither man. I in fact HATE 99.99999999% of it. It's all so bland, even the early bands. This band's first album is alright. Not great when it comes to performance, and maybe even songwriting, but for a thrash band with prog elements (another genre I don't usually love) it's much better than expected
