Vektor is a sci-fi thrash metal band from Tempe, Arizona. They portray the future as a bleak, barren wasteland that has been destroyed by greed, power, corruption, hate, violence, ignorance, and control.
Black Future is the second full-length album. It was released in 2009. The album is a brilliant musical knockout.
The lyrics are a bit odd to be an Thrash album, not that the standard meaningless poetry that deals with subjects of Party's, hard living, love, fuck around etc, but this raises the universe, cosmos and the media in between, it is a journey into controversial places, which is very interesting.
When you look at the cover one thinks immediately that this is a Voivod copy, but you get deceive. The music is a wonderful mix of Progresiv Black Metal based on a classical frame of Thrash. Very well written rolling bismuth riffs, heavy melodic passages and briliant snarling vocals. Guitarists possesses an incredible technical skill in their work, the other in the rhythm section consisting of a very tight drummer and a bassist who can play more than three notes, and really-abuse his instrumment. Something else that is very odd for a Thrash album is the length of the songs, here are three tracks that passes 10 minutes.
Black Future is a very well executed plate, as in a review would probably would sniff at a full score, this is an crystal clear tip for all thrash heads!
