Vektor Frontman Reveals Sci-Fi Inspiration


(Metal Hammer) Vektor frontman David DiSanto says his sci-fi obsession started with 1983 film Spacehunter. Starring Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald and Ernie Hudson, Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone follows the story arc of a bounty hunter on a mission to rescue three women stranded on a brutal planet.

Although widely described as a thrash metal band, DiSanto embraces his prog influences and says Vektor is simply a melting pot of his various influences - most notably 80s sci-fi films.

Speaking before his band's appearance on the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock (Sunday), Di Santo tells TeamRock: "My dad got me into sci-fi way younger than most parents would let kids watch those movies!

"I loved The Thing and Mad Max, but my favourite was Spacehunter. I loved the post apocalyptic movies. It's like that - but in space. The planet is a very harsh environment and I just loved it.

"So the sci-fi is a big influence on me, along with bands like Kreator and Destructor. A lot of prog records too - it's just throwing all that stuff into a blender." Read more here.
