Yep, that's pretty much exactly the way anyone would describe the song "Tetrastructural Minds," which was featured as NPR Music's Song of the Day yesterday.
(Now, just for a minute, imagine Terry Gross and Diane Rehm rocking out to Vektor. Please, just imagine it -- and if you're like us, soon images of Ira Glass and David Edelstein will creep in, too.)
But back to Vektor, blasting a stand-out track from the its 2011 release, Outer Isolation. The features complicated metal instrumentation presented in a rather straight-forward, digestible way, which isn't to say that this isn't totally in-your-face.
"The Internet has ushered in a new age of revivalist music trends, with thrash metal particularly benefiting from a surge in interest. But, while countless acts re-live every sound the genre has to offer, Vektor finds a way to embrace the past while also carving out an original niche: The young Arizona band combines thrash with elements of black metal and progressive rock. The resulting blend is fast, detailed, incredibly melodic and unexpectedly inventive," writes NPR's Anthony Fantano.
