Thrash metal titans, Vendetta, share album details & official music video for first single, “Stranglehold Of Terror”.

Six years since their latest, much-acclaimed studio offering, The 5th, German thrash metal titans VENDETTA return with their sixth album, entitled Black As Coal, on July 14, 2023 via Massacre Records!

Having released their first two records in the late 80’s, VENDETTA‘s style is deeply rooted in thrash and speed metal. With the addition of guitarist Jan Hüttinger and drummer Domi Bertelt, new blood joined VENDETTA a few years ago and the band started working on their upcoming, new album, that was recorded during the pandemic.

Black As Coal sees the band stronger and heavier than ever, and without question, will mark their best album to date! Give ear, VENDETTA have just unleashed a music video for their first, break-your-neck single “Strangehold Of Terror”.

“The theme of the song clearly goes back to the refugee flows and promotes sympathy for all people who had to leave their homeland,” VENDETTA singer Mario Vogel reveals. “Anyone threatened by war and hunger would certainly act the same way and flee.”

Black As Coal was mixed by Dominik Bertelt and VENDETTA at Caffeine Recording, and was mastered by Michael Simon at Rocket Science Audio Studio. The cover artwork was designed by Pablo Klose. Slated for a release as Jewel Case CD, Ltd. Vinyl LP and Digital formats on July 14, 2023 through Massacre Records, the album pre-sale of this must-have thrash metal gem is now available at THIS LOCATION!
