With the release of their debut album Black Future in November 2009, VEKTOR s arrival sent shockwaves throughout the metal world that were felt in all courses of the globe. Having established themselves as pioneers in a genre thought by many to be exhausted of new ideas, the futuristic force known as VEKTOR now return with one of the most highly anticipated follow-up albums of 2011! In 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 from 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. Going against the grain, VEKTOR created a wave of interest with their self-released CD entitled Demolition (2006) and the ferocious two track demo Hunger for Violence (2007). The tracks, eagerly shared by early fans, spread virally throughout the web putting the band on the radar of many international fans for the first time. In search of the perfect rhythm section to complete their vision, VEKTOR s lineup continued to evolve throughout 2008 before finding drummer Blake Anderson and bassist Frank Chin to cement the perfect line-up.
Gaining the attention of New York s Heavy Artillery Records later that year, VEKTOR eagerly joined the label s growing roster with the release of their now-legendary debut album Black Future in November 2009. In support of Black Future, VEKTOR hit the road for their first national tour alongside label mates EXMORTUS during December 2009 and January 2010, followed by their own headlining tour that summer.
Having set such a high standard for themselves with Black Future, VEKTOR pulled up their sleeves to meet the challenges and begin recording their sophomore album Outer Isolation in June 2011. With Black Future being hailed by many as an instant classic, the tetrastructural ensemble have a lot to live up to, and Outer Isolation will deliver! With their sights set at galactic conquest, VEKTOR employs an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound which few of their peers can claim.
