CD REVIEW Vendetta

Band : Vendetta
Album title : World Under Fire
Label : Lion Music
Distributor : Bertus
Release Date : 23/03/2012
Release : CD

Vendetta are a British heavy metal band, hailing from Newcastle. This album, ‘World Under Fire’ is their third release. They play traditional heavy metal 80ies style. 

Despite the fact that it is traditional metal, this album is a good album.  If you’ve grown up with traditional metal, like Saxon, Judas Priest, you’ll surely like this album.  But it goes farther than that.  Just listen to the song ‘Veil Of Empathy’ and it’s as if you were listening to vintage Dokken.

I was very pleased to hear this kind of music make a comeback.  The guitar tandem of Edward Box, and Pete Thompson brings a smile to my mound, and the vocal performance by Mr. Box is also very nice.  He may not have the most powerful of voices, but makes a good use of it.
The artwork on the sleeve is also very nice by the way.
