After nearly 5 long years, Philadelphia-based progressive thrashers Vektor are back with their third studio album entitled, Terminal Redux. Both embracing and expanding upon the intricate layers of the preceding albums, Black Future and Outer Isolation, the band deliver the album that we all knew they were capable of.
Never one to take a metal-by-numbers approach to song-writing, Vektor have embraced some unusual audio elements, including the vocal assistance of a group of Philadelphia soul singers, adding further texture to the sound without compromising on the riff-heavy fury. Recorded in part at the band’s home studio, along with Panther Pro-Audio in Philadelphia, Terminal Redux is a fine demonstration of technical precision, a 73+ minute masterclass in complexity, and affirmation that there is still plenty of innovation and intelligence in modern day metal.
