The debut full length album, "Black Future," from Arizona based thrashers VEKTOR will be released worldwide on November 17th on HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDS. The band has posted the title track from their new album on their MySpace page.
HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDS has announced the signing of Phoenix, AZ based futuristic thrashers, VEKTOR. Refusing to be pigeon-holed into any metal sub-genre, VEKTOR employs an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound that sets them apart from other thrash bands. Their debut full length album, "Black Future" on HEAVY ARTILLERY, is tentatively slated for release in August 2009.
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 metal contingent for their unique mix of technical, speed thrash and progressive influences. Going against the grain of the Phoenix metal scene, VEKTOR created a wave of interest with their self released CD "Demolition" (2006) and the two track demo "Hunger for Violence" (2007). After four years of local and regional gigging opening for such national acts as TESTAMENT, HIRAX, ICED EARTH and MUNICIPAL WASTE, VEKTOR is preparing to hit the road for their first national tour alongside label mates EXMORTUS in support of Black Future.
