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.
Behold... The Arctopus
American instrumental metal trio formed in 2001 and based in New York.
The group began as a duo of Colin Marston (playing the Warr guitar) and Mike Lerner (guitar) with a drum machine. They released a 2-song digital demo on MP3.com entitled "We Need A Drummer" before drummer Charlie Zeleny joined them in early 2003 and released a few EPs between 2003 and 2006 before signing to Metal Blade and releasing their debut full-length "Skullgrid" in 2007.
On December 30th 2008, drummer Charlie Zeleny stated that after 5 years with the group, he was leaving to focus on his career as a studio musician. In early 2009, Weasel Walter was announced Zeleny's replacement and the group headed in a more aggressive direction with their 2nd full-length "Horrorscension" released in 2012.
On January 27, 2015 the band announced that they had amicably parted ways with Weasel Walter and were searching for a new drummer. The band announced on July 12, 2016 that they had found their new drummer, Jason Bauers, and later that year released a new album "Cognitive Emancipation".

Continuing to shapeshift and unravel, while using unorthodox songwriting techniques that border on the incomprehensible, avant-garde extreme metal quartet PYRRHON return with What Passes For Survival. Dense, volatile, and drenched in manic ferocity, What Passes For Survival is an aural challenge that refuses to adhere to genre conventions, merging strategic orchestrated bursts of death metal chaos with expanses of unhinged improvisation. The latest stage of PYRRHON’s metamorphosis is one that demands repeated audio submersion from the listener, and satisfies those craving sonic extremity that pushes limits.
