From the dark void of endless space, the tetrastructural ensemble known as VEKTOR have returned with one of the most highly anticipated follow-up albums of 2011. Having burrowed their way into the skulls of metal fans worldwide with their 2009 debut album Black Future, the band now prepare to unleash their sophomore full-length, entitled Outer Isolation, on November 22nd, once again via Heavy Artillery Records.
In advance of the upcoming album VEKTOR are offering a free stream of the tracks “Dying World” and “Dark Creations, Dead Creators” as well as a look at the cryptic album cover artwork by renowned Bay Area artist Andrei Bouzikov (Skeleton Witch, Municipal Waste). Both tracks and artwork can be previewed now at: http://heavyartillery.bandcamp.com/album/outer-isolation
Furthermore, live footage of VEKTOR performing “Dying World” live in Fullerton, CA on September 17th is available here.
The futuristic force known as VEKTOR sent shockwaves throughout the metal world with their 2009 debut album Black Future, establishing themselves as pioneers in a genre thought by many to be exhausted of new ideas. What started as a quiet buzz quickly grew to a deafening roar; rave reviews from the press and scores of comments from fans in hundreds of blogs, news sites and message boards around the world tell the story of a band who had seemingly come out of nowhere to challenge the self-imposed limitations of the metal genre. Conceived in 2004 by front man / guitarist David DiSanto and lead shredder Erik Nelson, VEKTOR quickly forged a formidable name for themselves amongst the Phoenix, AZ metal contingent for their unique mix of technical, speed, thrash and progressive influences. Having set such a high standard for themselves with Black Future, VEKTOR pulled up their sleeves to meet the challenge and begin recording their sophomore album Outer Isolation in June 2011. With their sights set at galactic conquest, VEKTOR employs an arsenal with an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound which few of their peers can claim. Supporting 2011/2012 tour dates TBA shortly.
