Riot Radio – Vektor – Ultimate Artificer

“…so the cleansing begins…”

Though never resting in their live attack (including a deafening opening slot for Skeletonwitch at Underground Arts last fall that we dug the hell out of), it’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything new from Philly based prog/thrash space cadets Vektor. That all changes now as the cosmic overlords of solos, riffs and wails unleash “Ultimate Artificer”, and if the whole LP kicks this much ass we may already have a taste of one of 2016’s best records on our hands.

Vektor’s Terminal Redux is due out in March on Earache, and they’re currently touring all over Europe so catch them if you can.

A lifelong Philadelphian just as comfortable in a circle pit at Underground Arts as he is drooling over the new Hot Toys figures at Brave New Worlds, Kevin’s idiosyncratic sensibility gives this site it’s unique dichotomy between “riot” and “nerd”.
