"The Bavarian thrash metal band Vendetta was born in the 80's. After two demos, 'System Of Death' (1985) and 'Suicidal Lunacy' (1987), Vendetta released their debut album 'Go And Live... Stay And Die' in 1987. The songs on the album were about social problems like drugs, corruption and violence as well as immigration, war and politics.
"Within the next year, the band was on the road again. They've also released their second album, 'Brain Damage,' which was produced by Harris Johns. The songs became more complex and melodic.
"Vendetta also played a lot of gigs and supported bands like Paradox, Tankard, Exumer and Helstar.
"In 1990 Vendetta disbanded, but reunited 8 years later. In 2003 they recorded their 4-track demo 'Dead People Are Cool.' Vendetta have now signed a record deal with Massacre Records.
"Their new album, which is more aggressive and progressive than the band's previous releases, will be mastered by Dan Swanö at the Unisound studio and is scheduled to be released in winter 2011! Welcome to the Massacre Records family, Vendetta!"
