13:12 - Fritillaria Maybe the only progs that I loved were Opeth and Devin Townsend
12:06 - LeKiwi Yea...I'm prog obsessed...so I couldn't help but eventually succumb to every acclaimed prog band out there :P
12:01 - ScreamingSteelUS Yeah, I'm not hugely into prog. I love Devin Townsend, Dream Theater and Opeth are great, some other things here and there... but as you can see I'm not very deep into the genre.
11:58 - LeKiwi Which I see that you don't, Steel :P Although they should be right up your alley Gelati, it seems you're a fan of prog :)
11:51 - LeKiwi If you guys like progressive music at all, you will get it one day :) They are a brilliant band.
09:46 - Gelati Yea I never really understood the whole hype with them they do exactly nothing special for me, I mean Loomis was a beast i guess.
US thrashers Vektor's official Facebook page has been updated with new tour dates for a Western US tour in February. This will be Vektor's first tour since the release of Outer Isolation on December 6th through Heavy Artillery Records.
According to a posting on the band's official website, the band discovered internet porn and are therefore calling it quits:
"OK, that's not entirely true, we knew about the porn all along. But, after two albums , both of which we're hugely proud of, and about a hundred shows, all of them memorable in their own way, the question that remained for us was: what's next? The answer can be short: nothing. "La Muerte" and "Rise To Ruin" are two albums with which we've expanded, and indeed completed our body of work to our full satisfaction. Barring one or two exceptions, all the shows we've done since we decided to reform sometime in 2004 have been tremendously enjoyable. So why quit? Pretty simple, really: Every ride comes to an end. This is ours."
Arsis' original drummer and founding member Michael Van Dyne has rejoined the group.
Commented Van Dyne: "I'm looking forward to working with my friend Jim again, as well as the great people at Nuclear Blast. Judging by the new material that Jim Malone and Nick Cordle have been working on, I think we may be sitting on some of the most memorable and thrashy Arsis material written to date. Due to obligations with my full-time career, session drummers will most likely be utilized for big tours that Jim wishes to do in the future... However, regional shows and occasional mini-tours or festival gigs either here in North America or overseas are a definite possibility (and something I'd be totally psyched to do) if our collective schedules allow it. Good times."
