VENDETTA was founded in 1984, and after the release of two self-recorded demos, "System Of Death" (1985) and "Suicidal Lunacy" (1986), the band's debut "Go And Live... Stay And Die" followed in 1987. A year later, the second album "Brain Damage" was released and distributed by Noise International.
Tours with bands like Tankard, Helstar or Dimple Minds through Europe followed. In 1990 the band split up, but reunited in 2000 and recorded the demo "Dead People Are Cool" in 2003.
They once again went on tour - this time with bands like Sodom, Kreator, Destruction, Dew-Scented, Overkill, Metal Church, Exodus, Testament & HateSphere. They also played at a few festivals in Slovenia, Spain or Italy.
In 2010, VENDETTA entered the studio to record their 4th album "Feed The Extermination", which was mixed and mastered by none other than Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio in Örebro, Sweden.
The band signed with Massacre Records and released the album in 2011.
Now, in 2017, VENDETTA is back with a brand new album called "The 5th"!

It is, indeed, the band's 5th studio album - and it's time for uncompromising, mind-blowing thrash metal! Musically, VENDETTA go back to their roots: The songwriting's more aggressive again. But you'll also find many progressive guitar riffs and a lot of kick-ass guitar solos. The lyrics once again have a socio-cultural theme, and a few of the seven deadly sins - like envy, pride, wrath, greed or gluttony - will play a role.
You can expect catchy songs like "The Prophecy", fast thrash songs like "Let 'er Rip" or hymns like "Religion Is A Killer". Metalheads around the globe, it's worth the wait!
We'll try to bring you a wide range of possibilities from the worldwide music scene for all tastes.
