VENDETTA was the brainchild of five guys from Long Island, New York, created in fall 1989. The smooth and soaring vocals of Paul Carley led the way, his voice resonating with raw emotion and conviction. Guitar virtuoso Greg Arena weaved intricate melodies and scorching riffs that formed the band's sonic foundation. The keyboard wizardry of Dave Shockley added a layer of ethereal enchantment, infusing the band’s sound with mesmerizing textures. The stalwart bassist Bob Blickwede laid down thunderous grooves that anchored the music. While John Andricio, the heartbeat of the VENDETTA, kept the rhythm pulsating with his dynamic drumming.

Together, they embarked on a musical journey that traversed genres and defied expectations. The band played the Long Island music circuit, often headlining their own shows and playing as direct support for bands like LOUDNESS, DANGER DANGER and KIK TRACEE.

VENDETTA's melodic stylings were fashionable in the late 1980s and early 1990s rock scene. They would stay true to their original vision and sound despite the rapidly changing musical climate of the time.

In 1990 VENDETTA entered Paris Recording Studios in Long Island, NY where they would record their 9-song debut, “Behind Closed Doors''. The album would be produced by the band and engineer Scott Supack, who would also mix the album. The album was originally released only on cassette in a limited 500 pieces that would later becinme a rare US melodic rock album and difficult to obtain.
