Vela X, the pulsating beacon visible in all wavelengths (including radio waves, x-rays, and gamma rays) has captured the imagination of astronomers since its first observation. This pulsar in the constellation of Vela is known for being the third brightest pulsar witnessed thus far. Even with our profound understanding of the universe, astronomers and cosmologists still don't understand what caused this brilliant sparkle in the sky to pulsate so strangely.

Vela Pulsar is a fast, epic, and heavy metal song with a strong electronica influence. Vela Pulsar features a seven-string guitar, ambient synth elements, as well as multiple lead solos that overlap creating awesomely complex rhythms and melodies.
