Seattle modern rock outfit Vendetta Red’s fifth album, their second for a major label, sees the band embark on a journey based on the 1700’s Japanese cult from which the album took its name. So the story goes the cult took their own lives in the face of the imminent apocalypse. Produced by Howard Benson, the album can never be accused of being formulaic, meandering progressively from the grandiose pop of first single ‘Silhouette Serenade’ through to the more hardcore offerings of ‘The Body and the Blood’ or even the Muse tinged duo ‘Shiver’ and ‘The Great Castration’. If your taste extends to the end of the musical spectrum frequented by the likes of Muse and Black Mariah, then ‘SotRD’ will find favour in your collection. Grandiose, pompous but never less than interesting, Vendetta Red are currently flying the flag for eclectic modern rock.
