Vectom




Speed Revolution, 1985
Rules Of Mystery, 1986
Ah, German 80s speed metal! This is good speed metal influenced by Destruction and a bit of the early Helloween stuff on Rules Of Mystery. The 1st album is more intense and rougher and just better than the second, on which they try several improbable melodic riffs. Speed Revolution is actually quite fun, if not a revelation. Like Necronomicon, Darkness or Exumer, Vectom are clearly for the speed metal completist, as this is not in the league of the German masters (Assassin, Living Death, Backwater, Protector... you know what I mean). Great nostalgia anyway!
CD rip with no tags (track lists here).
Track 12

  2. I agree this is not Premier League German thrash metal, but I don't agree about Exumer. Their 'Possessed by Fire' is a killer!!!

  3. Always loved this band. "Loudness and Speed" is on par with the best of German speed/thrash.
