I found this band a few months ago, Not the typical new wave, but hold a very high value to the old thrash that was so awesome with a new touch.

Not bad, the music was good but the singer made me giggle. When he came on and said, "F*CK" it sounded more like he stubbed his toe than a statement...lol...there was some nice shredding in there tho :)

Okay, a couple of clarifications here:


Based on what I heard, I wouldn't say Aggression are "like thrash", I would say they ARE thrash, and very clearly influenced by one of the founding fathers...Anthrax. Not too bad, for a small underground band (I assume this simply because I haven't heard of them or their label). EDIT: Oh, you meant "do you like thrash", didn't you? If that's the case, ignore the first part of my comment. :D
Vektor are indeed awesome. I am just starting to get into them now. Their primary influences are clearly Voivod and Destruction, two of my favorite thrash bands from "back in the day". The vocals are almost spot-on for Schmier in some cases...eery.
Don't forget that Skeletonwitch, Warbringer, Lazarus A.D. and a whole host of other neo-thrash bands are tearing shit up nowadays, too. Vektor is good, but I'm not yet convinced that they are the far-and-away leaders of the thrash revival scene...
makethemsuffer is a crotchety old fuck.

There is nothing about Vektor's sound that should have them included with thrash revival bands. They are progressive/technical thrash, and in my not-so-humble opinion, I think that Black Future is the best thrash metal album of the '00s by FAR.

I just thought it was the same rehashed thrash riffs with wannabe Zetro vocals on top of it... no thanks. They aren't bad by any means, but just so unoriginal and frankly, quite boring.

Also, I'm sick of all these revival bands writing thrash songs about... well, thrash.

It's not like all of the revival bands are bad. Warbringer, Municipal Waste, Lazarus A.D. (though I don't know if I would include them in this current revival movement), and some other bands are really some great stuff. But like most scenes, it's just become so overpopulated with bands doing the same exact shit as the next one.

I think of it this way. Vektor is a newer band, and they play thrash (although a progressive form of it), so they're in that category. Putting them in that group should not be degrading, even if there are a lot of boring bands in it. Why? Well think of all those boring bands as McDonald's. Then think of Vektor as In-N-Out. Unless you've been to California, I doubt you've had In-N-Out, but I assure you, it's some of the best fast food you will ever have.

The first time I had one of their burgers I thought it was the best burger I'd ever had. I've eaten there about ten times since. They've gone downhill every time.
Don't get me wrong, they're good, but they're not amazing, and they're pretty overpriced too. And their fries are terribly inconsistent.

ok let me lay down some ground rules here.

first of all, ALL mexican fast food sucks. every time im in the car and someone goes and orders taco bell it smells like a rotting animal and tastes 3 times as nasty.

next we have to agree that the big burger joints all suck, except wendys. ever go to a mcdonalds at 1:30 in the morning? its disgusting what they give you and call "food".

now if you want some good food look for local places. around here we have a place called 25 burgers, they sell burgers, 25 different ones to be exact. my favorite is the bacon bleu cheese with fried onions and chipotle sauce :drool:

and of course there's the grease trucks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z80aqqbG3c)

I think Taco Bell can be okay once in a while. I definitely usually hit up the local taco place though, especially since it's open til 3 AM.

I prefer Burger King > MccyD's, but most of our local places that have burgers aren't "fast food".

I'm even sick of Municipal Waste, and have finally caved into the "yeah, Toxic Holocaust kinda sold out" argument that I have been disagreeing with since the release of Overdose.
There are some amazing thrash bands out there these days and no one gives a fuck. I don't want all the nu-thrash scenesters into them, but christ, the lack of support has caused multiple of them to break up without even releasing a proper amount of material.
Bastardator (RIP), Abigail, Evil Damn, Bludwulf, Children of Technology, Funerot (RIP), Inepsy and Tiger Junkies (as well as many other metal/punk band) are thousands of times better, even at replicating the true 80's sound than all these shitty/clean/trendy thrash band everyone is jizzing over.

It really isn't. Just a bunch of useless sugar and calories. Soda is a big weakness of mine, so thank God for Diet Mountain Dew (though it isn't particularly healthy, either).

Even in moderation Soda is bad. Just one soda per week is about 9000 extra calories a year that you really didn't need. Same goes for the other stuff.

Yea soda really is totally unnecessary. i personally only drink mostly water, wouldnt you rather use those calories on some delicious food instead of just drinking it? sometimes i want a dr pepper or something but ill usually just drink a few sips to satisfy the craving and then throw it away.

Yep. Even worse if you get the big drink sizes at a fast food place. It's all diet soda for me. Yeah, there are probably some concerns about the stuff that's in that, but most of it is conflicting info, whereas I KNOW the calories and sugar in regular soda are bad for me.

The aspartame in the diet soda is worse for you than any sugar and calories. Aspartame is a poison.

Um, no.

The artificial sweetener aspartame has been the subject of several controversies and hoaxes since its initial approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1974. Critics allege that conflicts of interest marred the FDA's approval of aspartame, question the quality of the initial research supporting its safety,[41][42][43] and postulate that numerous health risks may be associated with aspartame.

The validity of these claims has been examined and dismissed.[44][45][46] In 1987, the U.S. Government Accountability Office concluded that the food additive approval process had been followed properly for aspartame.[41][47] Aspartame has been found to be safe for human consumption by more than ninety countries worldwide,[48][49] with FDA officials describing aspartame as "one of the most thoroughly tested and studied food additives the agency has ever approved" and its safety as "clear cut".[50] The weight of existing scientific evidence indicates that aspartame is safe at current levels of consumption as a non-nutritive sweetener.[3]

your body pretty much converts everything you eat into sugar when its digested, but you really arent designed to handle the huge amount that is in soda. think about it, in nature you really only find pure sugar in fruit, but nowadays its added to practically everything.

sugar drives insulin which drives fat production and inflammation and will eventually lead to type II diabetes. its also addictive, try going a week without eating anything sweet.

Sugar can lead to things like diabites but you have to eat sugar and other junk in excessive amounts.

Oh, well Jones is the shit, but I think it's because Jones is supposed to taste like it does, whereas I've gotten used to Mt. Dew and Pepsi in their HFCS versions, so the throwback shit sucks.

I just thought it was the same rehashed thrash riffs with wannabe Zetro vocals on top of it... no thanks. They aren't bad by any means, but just so unoriginal and frankly, quite boring.Agreed.

There is nothing about Vektor's sound that should have them included with thrash revival bands. They are progressive/technical thrashThat's basically what I was trying to say.

I think that Black Future is the best thrash metal album of the '00s by FAR.It's damn fucking good, there's no doubt about that. :rocker:
