New Jerseyâ€™s VTT is proud to announce a confirmed March 12 show in the bandâ€™s home state of New Jersey alongside legendary American metal band W.A.S.P. on their headlining trek. Plans are also underway for a tour of greater America later this year, most likely this summer; details will be available on that trek shortly.
In the meantime VTT will continue playing in and around the Northeastern US, continuing to support its third album, â€˜Symptoms Of Sin,â€™ an eight-track effort of driven alt-metal produced by friend and Biohazard/Suicide City vocalist-guitarist Billy Graziadei at Underground Sound Studios (Sick Of It All, Life Of Agony, Pantera). Several tracks from â€˜Symptoms of Sinâ€™ are now online at the band’s MySpace page. The bandâ€™s latest music video, for â€˜Symptomsâ€™ lead track “The Victim” is also online â€“ and currently featured at Ultimate-Guitar.com.
VTT previously released â€˜Alone In Pain,â€™ in 2007, and 2005â€™s â€˜Mandalaâ€™ under the VooDoo Terror Tribe moniker, but â€˜Symptoms Of Sinâ€™ marks the debut of the shorter, acronym name. â€œThe acronym better represents our new approach, and is iconic in its own way,â€ guitarist Emir Erkal recently stated in an interview. â€œWhile in a way weâ€™re a tribe, the term â€˜terrorâ€™ doesnâ€™t usually apply.â€ â€˜Symptoms Of Sinâ€™ also sees the recording debut of new VTT vocalist Gil PZ, a Texas native who recently relocated to the bandâ€™s New Jersey headquarters

“New Jersey’s VTT ranges from sounding like old school Biohazard to the rocking â€˜more commercialâ€™ sounds of Sevendust, most importantly demonstrating that they can write some tried-and-true heavy metal arrangements that still have radio appeal” â€“ TheMetalDen.com
