Conceived in December of 2002 by front man/guitarist David DiSanto, Vektor quickly gained popularity amongst the Phoenix metal contingent for their unique mix of technical, speed thrash and progressive influences. Vektor created a wave of interest with their self released demo Demolition (2006) and their two track demo Hunger for Violence (2007). After four years of local and regional performances as the opening act for such national acts as Testament, Hirax, Iced Earth and Municipal Waste, Vektor hit the road for their first national tour alongside label mates Exmortus in support of Black Future in December 2009 through January 2010. They also toured the US in June–August 2010 on their own as well as a west coast tour in February of 2012. Their debut full length album, Black Future, was released on November 17, 2009 on NY's Heavy Artillery Records. The band released their most recent album, Outer Isolation, on November 22, 2011 on the Heavy Artillery label.

Formed in 2002, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER had several underground releases, including a split 7-inch and a live album, before signing with Relapse. Their studio debut, Buried In the Front Yard, was released October 2005. Blabbermouth called the record, “a dynamic thrash album with roots in crossover, a musically talented cast, and loads of tongue-in-cheek cleverness.” The band would keep busy with additional split recordings, Speed N Spikes Vol. II (2008) and Urine Trouble/ Nothing Defeats the Skull (2008) before getting back in to the studio for their second full length, Living for Death; Destroying the Rest also released by Relapse January 2009. The band supported Absu for a 22-date US/Canadian tour April 2009, a tour with Deceased in 2010, and have been performing regionally since.
RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER currently features bassist/vocalist Shawn Riley, guitarist Matt Moore, guitarist Ryan Moll, and drummer Patrick Battaglia
