Samuel Andrade-Sangster A baroque, fun, theatrical prog-thrash album that’s definitely worth purchasing. Favorite track: Recharging the Void.

Archmage Orladin This album is simply beyond praise. Contender for greatest metal album of all time. Everything about it is a triumph; musically, thematically, conceptually. It's like finding a black box containing lore on an ancient civilization, conveyed through music and narrative. Hard to choose a favorite track, but Collapse is full body goosebumps. Pteropticon is obsidian sharp and void of space, deadly badass cool. Ultimate Artificer has possibly the best guitar riff/hooks EVER. Pure distilled genius. Favorite track: Collapse.

Leterren Starships on fire, screaming through the atmosphere. Explosive and frenetic. Some of the most memorable thrash riffs in the history of metal Favorite track: Recharging the Void.

about

After nearly 5 long years, Philadelphia-based progressive sci-fi metallers Vektor are back with their third studio album, 'Terminal Redux'. Both embracing and expanding upon the intricate layers of the preceding albums, 'Black Future' and 'Outer Isolation', the band deliver the album that we all knew they were capable of. 'Terminal Redux' is their first concept album, telling the story of a test subject and his rise to power within the all-controlling Cygnus Regime. His ultimate goal is to restore balance within the galaxy by controlling the ebb and flow of life and death. After regaining his position as a top-ranking General, he incites a coup within Cygnus and takes command of their forces. However, as time passes, it becomes clear to him that power is just an illusion.

Never one to take a metal-by-numbers approach to song-writing, Vektor have embraced some unusual audio elements, including the vocal assistance of a group of Philadelphia soul singers, adding further texture to the sound without compromising on the riff-heavy fury. Recorded in part at the band's home studio, along with Panther Pro-Audio in Philadelphia, 'Terminal Redux' is a fine demonstration of technical precision, a 73+ minute masterclass in complexity, and affirmation that there is still plenty of innovation and intelligence in modern day metal.
