TO BOLDLY GO...

MOVING WAY BEYOND LAZY COMPARISONS TO VOIVOD, VEKTOR’S THIRD ALBUM ‘TERMINAL REDUX’ IS TOTALLY OUT OF THIS WORLD. TERRORIZER SPOKE TO FRONTMAN DAVID DISANTO TO GET THE FULL PICTURE

Since forming under an umbrella of technical thrash metal and a fascination with the cosmic dances happening a few million light years beyond our piddly existence, Vektor have been inescapably compared to VoiVod, Canadian metal legends and space cadets in their own right. From the moment the band’s ‘Nucleus’ demo hit the streets in 2004, the Philadelphia quartet has drawn more comparisons to the nuclear war survivors from Black City than anyone else; even the likes of Coroner, Watchtower, Toxik and Annihilator, all of whom are also valid points of reference. Granted, being mentioned in the same breath as Voivod ain’t too shabby, but Vektor have been surfing with the space aliens for a dozen years and long ago grew sick of how quickly, dismissively and some might say lazily Voivod gets mentioned in the same breath. When we catch up with guitarist/vocalist David DiSanto for a chat about all things Vektor, including the conceptual convolution that is band’s third album, ‘Terminal Redux’, it is, ironically enough, midway through a North American tour supporting the band whose shadow they’ve been living in since their own inception. Logic dictates that touring with said band isn’t the swiftest measure in shaking those comparisons, but David looks at his present situation with rosier coloured glasses and there are likely fewer dudes out there who’d be happier spending a month on the road alongside one of his heroes.

About Terrorizer Magazine

This month’s cover stars are 25 years old this year and have just released their tenth album, so for Katatonia it’s a double whammy. But with age comes clarity and knowledge and as you’ll have heard for yourselves, the band’s new release ‘The Fall Of Hearts’ is such a brilliant piece of melancholic metal. Perhaps not the most obvious of coverstars, it’s safe to say that Katatonia deserve the honour through consistently delivering awesome albums and going the distance when others have fallen by the wayside. I know you’ll enjoy José’s story as much as I did reading it for the first time. This issue is packed, as always, with a cross-section of brutality and extremity and was brought to you as certain staff members recover from two of the best festivals in the calendar – namely Roadburn and Ritual Festival. You can read about both in this ‘ere issue too.
