Vektor - Outer Isolation Review

back to reviews

Artist: Vektor

Album: Outer Isolation

Released: 2011

A mixture of styles and genres: Thrash Death Progressive Black Metal

Review:

Leave all other people's considerations, descriptions and statements about this band, its previous albums or even about that. Forget what Thrash is so as not to throw yourself into the bounds restricting the frames of styles. Get ready to change vektor in your understanding of the new music.
First, it is completely unclear, what this style really is. Naturally, Thrash dominates here, but the voice is closer to Black, overall it looks like Death together with Progressive, so it's anybody's guess...
The whole thing reminded me of Die Apokalyptischen Reiter (the first band I could think of) from the musical point of view - a sort of Thrash/Death with very special vocals, the whole Progressive music layer is close to Mekong Delta, perhaps, to their Pictures at an Exhibition to be more exact.
The singer of this band is very interesting. If you listen to him more attentively, sometimes you will heat high-pitched trills, which are very hard to produce just for fun. The guitars are not inferior to the singer as far as the quality is concerned, it is not just a noisy and fact filler, it is a really good technical work with good solo.
Overall, this album is quite sound and finished interesting and not too conventional. It is enough to keep up such work, and everything will be as fine as it is now!
