Arizonan progressive thrashers Vektor are streaming new song Pteropticon exclusively with Metal Hammer.

Taken from Vektor’s upcoming futuristic concept album Terminal Redux, Pteropticon is the name given to an elite squadron of Reapers deep in space, descending upon an unsuspecting alien world.

“The prefix, Pter, means wing, and an Opticon is the inner part of the optic lobes in an insect brain,” explains frontman David DiSanto. “Put them together and you get an all-seeing force that patrols worlds from the sky. This track is a full-force, thrash attack from start to finish. We really hope you like it!”

Terminal Redux is out May 6, via Earache Records.
