It’s a big universe. Of its various parallels, here are two. One harbours Vektor; the other needs an introduction—teeming with eminence, whose extrusion is a curve inclination yet to go up or down. With Vexovoid at its forefront, it at least has a few light years catered for. Easy as pointing out Vex inhabits Vek’s shadowland, Vex’s future might not be so. Only certainty is it’ll be compelling. Mini-portals may be allowing Hawking-like leakages enriching the parallel Vexo-region—until they run at par. Talk of (negatively) charging the void.
Where straight Thrash is razor-sharp rage enforcement, this sounds—as with various Prog/Tech Thrash outfits—like the equivalent of the lathery oil, in all its viscous heating, that engulfs the forementioned outpour, to disinfect the riffs before a more surgical arrangement. An arraignment as close to skyforging as starforging is, since either smithing defines the other. And more to the Vex universe, it being a sonically expanding one, the heavy stuff is yet to pummel ears, as each of its Helios gets charted.
There comes a time when the Vexovoid and Vektor parallels will meet, mini-portals merging unit by unit, creating a fleeting loop into both worlds and Vexovoid will give Vektor a run for their spatial martials. Or could it be more of a bane to them if they resemble Vektor too much, Vektor will finally land into Vektor’s shadowland, and wonder how they exist twice at once? Time won’t tell. Space might.
Rather than pass along as a clone band, there are enough excursions to stake the claim on being good at that—a bassist relentlessly flailing closely, with a helping of his curvature while handling the vocals; and easy to follow drumming. It is Portal who would be grateful for a tasteful application of their name. Better a good duplicate than a bad one. Better an interesting (not a by-the-book) copy than a good one.
Not stately, although it’s a solid debut—after they came across writings Vektor was at a loss to use or discard, but they decided to have a look before dismiss them all together. That, or their subconscious rearing its future-wagging tail from a still to be distant past, all memories of Vektor retained.
