NONVECTOR is a progressive metal band that infuses technical, sludge, and progressive rock elements within a classical framework in order to drag the listener back to the aether.
After a 14-year hiatus, founder and guitarist James Jackson of Crimson Massacre (defunct) formed NonVector, bringing in bassist James Duvall and classically trained Pianist Vince Patillo to create their own take on progressive rock/metal music. For A Short Trip Home EP, Kevin Talley was brought on board to create the explosive and technical percussion skills needed for the EP.
NonVector’s EP debut “A Short Trip Home” has inspired James J. after reading F. Scott Fitzgerald 1927’s namesake. Bringing in a technical and classical foundation with layers of progressive elements and to give it a southern sound where all of its members live.
After creating their single Ethereal HyperVisor released in 2020, James J., James D., and Vince have signed with the Italian record label WormHoleDeath to continue their path of creating their sound with classical elements, progressive notes, and Texas sludge.
Born 1969, grew up with the NWOBHM sounds, musically educated with cult french magazines that were ENFER and METAL ATTACK, definitely nailed to the style when "The Number Of The Beast" by IRON MAIDEN was released... From 1982, it was clear life would never be the same ! Young & getting wild to the HEAVY sounds of SAXON, VENOM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, Young Fab also discovered thanks to school mates the NOISE, FILTH & FURY of Hard-Core/Punk bands like G.B.H, DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES but also CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, FUGAZI... and later on, through the 90's, everything that was ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMENTAL, GRUNGE, INDUSTRIAL (SONIC YOUTH, NINE INCH NAILS, SOUDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS)... Passion & curiosity grew up as years went by ... Fate was SEALED... no turning back ! No Music = No Life !
