#6 Vektor: Outer Isolation
First time you see the logo, thinking now that is a clear VoiVod rip-off? I don't know about that, but what I do know is that this Arizona based act offers some of the finest 21st century thrash metal. They have the typical thrash sound, but they have an edge which is David Disanto's insane high-pitched screams. They are really uncanny and set these guys apart from the mass, but that is not all. These guys really can play and compose great headbanging songs.
Outer Isolation is their sophomore album and is truly great. Check out Tetrastructural Minds in case you need any proof.
