4 stars VEKTOR successfully delivers an interesting brand of technical thrash metal in the new millennium by fusing the elements of not only the thrash bands that came before but by also incorporating other styles of metal ranging from traditional, death and blackened varieties. They take what they've heard before and progressively blend it all together and hone their virtuosic delivery making one of the more interesting thrash bands i've encountered in quite a while. Although they have been compared to the tech thrash band Voivod and rightfully so, since both their logo and subject matter is similar in the sci-fi world, the music itself does not sound similar.

VEKTOR employ a ruthless and brutal delivery of extreme metal that means business. Quiet and melodic moments occur and when they do they have full command of the slow and melancholy. VEKTOR have mastered the art of progressive rock in all its mood changes and applied it to a thrash metal context, something that is highly demanding and rarely accomplished in such an epic fashion. This is one of those albums that warrants multiple listens both on the lyrical and musical fronts.

There are many 5 star moments on this album but overall there are some parts that drag a little too much for me and keep this from being an outright masterpiece. This is, however, an excellent debut album that I have been trying to get at a reasonable price for some time and now that it has been reprinted and released again it should be a lot easier to acquire. Looking forward to more from this exciting sophisticated band.
