Recharging the Void After nearly 5 long years, Philadelphia-based progressive sci-fi metallers Vektor are back with their third studio album, 'Terminal Redux'.

Terminal Redux is the third album by the American technical thrash metal band Vektor, released on May 6, 2016. It is the band's first album released on Earache Records. The album is a concept album, which tells a sci-fi story about an astronaut finding the key to immortality and using it to gain vast political and financial power, but eventually experiencing an existential crisis as a result

Terminal Redux, their third and finest album, takes the band’s cerebral tendencies to the next level: over the course of the album’s ten songs, vocalist and guitarist David DiSanto tells the fairly elaborate story of a military general astronaut who rises to political power among the intergalactic Cygnus regime after finding an interstellar mineral that just might be the key to. immortality. With its seventy-plus minute runtime, Terminal Redux occasionally threatens to become Vektor’s Tales from Topographic Oceans – a moment where their pretensions reach a head and alienate all but the already initiated. Their intensity, however, makes even the headier moments feel like breakthroughs.

The first concept album from the heady, Philly-based thrashers, and their first for new label Earache, Terminal Redux expands on the tech-heavy, progressive-minded prowess of 2011's Outer Isolation with an even more ambitious set of sci-fi neo-thrash transmissions. Built around a narrative concerning an astronaut coming to terms with an existential crisis that arises from his discovery of the key to immortality, the ten-track set delivers a near constant stream of virtuosic riffing and punishing beats, peppered with cosmic utterances both snarled and crooned.

It’s been 5 Earth years since Vektor released their previous album, Outer Isolation upon this world and in the intervening time, the band have shaped what could possibly be the best gift of thrash metal delivered by any band, modern or old-school, since the millennium.
