Product Details


Product Description

2011 sophomore album from the Metal band. With the release of their debut album Black Future in November 2009, Vektor's arrival sent shockwaves throughout the Metal world that were felt in all courses of the globe. Having set such a high standard for themselves with Black Future, the band pulled up their sleeves to meet the challenges and begin recording Outer Isolation in June 2011. With Black Future being hailed by many as an instant classic, the tetrastructural ensemble have a lot to live up to, and Outer Isolation will deliver! With their sights set at galactic conquest, VEKTOR employs an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound which few of their peers can claim.

Classic. Nov. 27 2011
By Fernando Rivera - Published on Amazon.com
Another classic from an extremely talented band. This is a worthy follow up to 2009's Black Future. If you are a fan of metal, progressive music or both definitely check this out. It is not easy to swallow for everybody at first but give it enough listens and you will be bowing down eventually. This is a masterpiece.

Another fantastic album from Vektor Jan. 8 2012
By Mercury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
At first I didn't think this was as good as Black Future, but after some closer listening the album has really grown on me, just like the first one. It's technical. It's spacey. It's epic. It's Vektor.

One of the coolest things about Vektor is the lyrics. Thrash metal probably already has some of the greatest, most intellectual lyrics of the different genres of metal, but Vektor is way above most other artists. They're like a group of philosophic science-fiction authors with godly guitar skills. Awesome.

Most people talk about Vektor only in terms of their influences, which I will not mention here. Why? Because they are their own band. They're unique. No one else really does exactly what they do. And that's what's great about them.

By the way, this album includes remakes of Tetrastructural Minds (AWESOME), Fast Paced Society, and Venus Project from their earlier demo Demolition. If you listened to those on the demo (limited, you'll be hard pressed to find it now) or YouTube, just know that they are even better than before, and produced in much higher quality.

I didn't want to believe the hype.. Dec 28 2011
By En Sabah Nur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like the title says, I usually find myself let down by bands (or anything for that matter) that have too much hype revolving around them. Especially when it's early in their career. Now, this is their only album I own. I downloaded it on a whim because it was cheap. I must say that I was blown away. Technical, uber fast, sci-fi thrash... what more can you ask for??? Not many bands in the nu-thrash scene stand out and set themselves apart from the rest, but Vektor sure does. I described them to a friend as Death meets Kreator on speed and steroids. And that is still a vague description. Like I said before, they do stand out with their own thrash sound. I will be downloading Black Future asap, and I recommend this cd for any thrash fan who wants a little something different and is tired of the same regurgitated music. Do it.

Soooo worth the wait!! Dec 22 2011
By Sean Dressler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Like other reviewers on here, I loved "Black Future" and wondered if Vektor could possibly put out a second album that I would like as much as the first. Even though "Black Future" blew my mind, I think I actually like this one a little better. They are both 5 star albums, but I like the guitar playing in this one a little more because of some of the chords used, and the solos. I'm more stuck on the vocal content of this album too. The drums are incredible, and never too predictable. There are plenty of tempo changes, key changes and creative parts to mix it up, but it never gets too 'math-y'. The complexity isn't annoying. This one easily goes into my top 3 albums of the year.

Vektor finds their own sound. April 10 2012
By Clint Simkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While I enjoyed Black Future, I couldn't help but get tired of it after a few listens due to the fact that it lacked consistency and coherency in its song-writing. Some Coroner-esque riffing here, some Voivod-esque dissonance there, some more punkish riffs thrown in as well, but all in all I found the album to be too much of a jumble of influences.

Outer Isolation fixes this problem. It isn't without its faults. Sometimes tracks could have stood to have been tightened up, and are a bit indulgent. But for the most part, this album is a fantastic progression beyond Black Future. It brings out the most fruitful possibilities from Black Future and develops them into a fully unique character and a genuinely new Vektor-ian conception of metal. Voivod is still a comparison point to some vague extent, but only in the vaguest sense. Vektor has really figured out a new style. Clever riffing, unexpected harmonic and melodic work, and solid development. Far better integration of punkish elements with the more technical riffing that Vektor is impressively adept at, giving the music a sense of fun and energy alongside proficiency and skill.

This album is a fantastic achievement. A massive improvement over their last, and I hope Vektor can continue down this path in the future.
