4 stars Ah... Vektor, the band that pretty much came out of nowhere and completely rolled over me with their album Black Future!

I've honestly never expected a Thrash Metal act to make such an impact on me considering that the genre hasn't exactly been known for great innovation. Of course there are a few exceptions like Voivod, Sepultura and even Meshuggah. But unlike all of these bands, Vektor didn't start as a pure Thrash Metal band and then slowly began evolving later towards a new style. The band clearly knows how they want to progress with their music and do so with this release.

According to the band members themselves, Black Future is Vektor's first full length release and it's here that the band shows what's they're all about. A nine track album that reaches way beyond the 60 minute mark, which means that there are quite a few lengthy compositions on this release, which in itself is very unusual for the genre, but let's remember that Vector is not your typical Thrash Metal act. The members clearly like to do more than just play short/heavy/upbeat compositions to satisfy the masses; this is a thinking man's Thrash Metal where we get the best of both worlds. Simply an excellent mix between Thrash and Tech/Extreme Prog Metal.

I honestly don't know how to describe Vektor's style any better than I already did and telling anything else might be considered an unnecessary spoiler on my part. If you're an open-minded fan of creative metal music then I honestly don't see how you can go wrong with this release!
