Conceived by front man and guitarist David DiSanto, a spark of energy gave rise to Vektor in late 2004. With the addition of lead shredder Erik Nelson, the band began playing shows around the local Phoenix area in 2005. Implementing technical, speed thrash, and progressive influences, Vektor quickly found their own unique sound, setting them apart from the rest of the Phoenix metal scene. The band soon made a name for themselves throughout the southwestern United States, playing local shows and opening for national acts such as Testament, Sigh, Sonata Arctica, Hirax, Finntroll, Dark Tranquility, Firewind, Iced Earth, Unexpect and Municipal Waste. Vektor released their self-financed CD entitled "Demolition" in early 2006, generating a massive response throughout the metal underground and earning the band a growing contingent of die-hard fans. In 2007 the band followed up with the two-track "Hunger for Violence" demo to even greater fanfare, putting the band on the radar of many international fans for the first time. In search of the perfect rhythm section to complete their vision, Vektor's line-up continued to evolve throughout 2008, before finding drummer Blake Anderson and bassist Frank Chin, finally cementing the ideal like-up to realize their goal of galactic conquest. Refusing to be pigeon-holed into any metal sub-genre, Vektor employs an array of intricacy, virtuosity and a wholly unique sound which few others can claim. Diabolical space metal? Prog? Jazz fusion? You decide. Welcome to the future; prepare to have your brains melted.
