Last year we got Journal's Unlorja. This year we get Vektor's Outer Isolation. I love these epic fantastical metal masterpieces so damn much. I like where this is heading. Might go up to 5 once I further comprehend the epicness.
I agree, best thing to come out since Unlorja. Outer Isolation's lyrics are amazing. They describe in full detail a futuristic dystopian society. The song structure plus the dwelling into the weaknesses of humanity, are reminiscent of DEATH when they were in their prime.
This is a really great album, they cleaned up their song writing and skimmed down on the attempts at being epic. They got a giant leap closer to Voivod however, and this is one reason why they are not a progressive band. I will listen a bit more before rating.
