A punishing progressive thrash metal unit based out Philadelphia, the seeds for Vektor were sewn in Tempe, Arizona in 2002 by frontman/guitarist David DiSanto.
Initially operating under the moniker Locrian, the band officially morphed into Vektor in 2004, and quickly became one of the leading lights in the region's fertile metal scene, sharing the stage with notable national acts like Testament
, Iced Earth
, and Municipal Waste
. The band issued their self-released demo, Demolition, in 2006, and began touring both regionally and nationally, eventually inking a deal with Heavy Artillery Records
. Their debut album for the label, Black Future, hit the streets in 2009, with their sophomore outing, Outer Isolation, dropping in 2011. The following year saw Vektor move to Earache Records
and relocate to Philadelphia. Terminal Redux, their third studio long player and first for outing for Earache
, was released in 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
