Vendetta Red is one of those bands that doesn’t dive into a sub-genre pool. Rather, they test the waters of a few and then wade around knee-deep in them. Cut Your Noose is a good example of this; they occasionally taste of screamo, but Zach Davidson doesn’t want all his lyric writing talent to go to waste, and they don’t have enough heavy riffs to be considered hard rock.
On one of my occasional trips to my local record store, I picked up a CD from the extreme discount section titled Crash And Burn. The cover had red letters and the picture was of someone in an alleyway, drawn in a classic comic style. I thought to myself, “This has early 90s punk rock written all over it.” and sure enough, when I got home and listened to it for the first time, there was good ol’ fashion punk rock blasting out of my speakers.
