I have a personal connection with this band. Back in 2003 my own metal band had broken up and I ended up auditioning for a local band in Phoenix, AZ. That's when I met David Disanto the lead guitarist and vocalist for Vektor. While I didn't get the job I took home their demo and fell in love with them from that point on. “Venus Project" appeared on that 2003 demo and was later recorded in 2011. With its amazing, plucky intro evoking the perfect inauguration to the slicing rhythms inherent to the verse, and those wild descending dual-melodies in the bridges. The band switches styles between the jazzy, often bizarre guitar arpeggios of King Crimson and the stomping tech-thrash that characterized 1980’s Coroner.
