Feels like there's been quite a lot of Vektor worship-style prog thrash this year - these guys perhaps aren't Terminalist-tier, but this is a solid album, and one that maybe plays a bit more on the melodic prog side (see the cleaner passage near the end of The Observatory and in the closing song). The hyperenergetic melodicism of Circus Strange is a lot of fun too

Dude !!!!

Haven't listened to Venus yet, but thanks for introducing me to Vektor! I'm listening to Black Future as we speak and it's 🔥. Not loving the vocals TBH but I never really liked a lot of thrash bands because of it anyway. Except perhaps Dark Angel, real Sepultura and of course Slayer 🖤

As Vektor worship band's go these are a pretty damn good one, up there with Terminalist I'd say. This is a thoroughly entertaining release with an endless supply of great catchy riffs, and pretty decent, ultra-shredding leads, I like the clean vocals too. The instrumental "The Arrythmic Pulse Of Universe" and the last track "Subatomic Search For Human Consciousness" stand-out for me the most.

Hell yeah! More Vektor-worship is always welcome to me. Riffs galore, of course. The dynamic between the clean and harsh vocals is also very nice. I see this proggy, sci-fi style as the most prosperous route for future thrash.

This is coolio. Actually sounds like an unreleased Vektor album with less over the top vocals.

I would be very surprised if he did considering he died like 2 years ago
