Vektor

Terminal Redux

Vektor - Terminal Redux album cover

The progressive thrash band from Pennsylvania is definitely very ambitious with their concept in their latest album, Terminal Redux. Their two previous full-lengths,Black Future and Outer Isolation, have already established this ambition, and the fact that their logo looks suspiciously similar to (both) Voivod used, fuels the fire.

Switchblade - Switchblade (2016) album cover

Originally formed back in the late '90s, through the years Switchblade have managed to attain a cult status.
