VICIOUS RUMORS UNVEIL VIDEO FOR "MURDERBALL"
Last month Bay Area Thrashers VICIOUS RUMORS released their first new studio album in over five years entitled "Razorback Killers". The band recently completed work on a video for the track "Murderball", which can be seen on SPV/Steamhammer's YouTube Channel at: http://www.youtube.com/user/spv#p/a/u/0/DPxmBAYTja0
It's Geoff Thorpe's story of power and pain. The quest to change people's lives with the power of metal music and the fascination of his band in 2011. The guitarist and main songwriter of American power metal act VICIOUS RUMORS says: "The older we get the more wicked VICIOUS RUMORS sound. We've definitely not slowed down - quite the opposite - have even more drive. Our fans won't see a single VICIOUS RUMORS show where we don't go to our limits and beyond." Anybody who has been to one of the group's gigs during the past two years knows just what he means. Thorpe's comment not only describes his band's concerts, but also without reservation VICIOUS RUMORS' latest album "Razorback Killers". The album features ten breathtaking new songs which transport the traditional VICIOUS RUMORS sound perfectly into the present. To cut a long story short: this band has never sounded more dynamic than on "Razorback Killers".
The reasons for VICIOUS RUMORS' high-powered performance? Thorpe has a plausible explanation: "The metal is in our blood!!!! Plus we always have an awesome line-up. Larry Howe on drums and vocals, our bassist Stephen Goodwin and guitarist Kiyoshi Morgan, and in Brian Allen we've found the best vocalist you could possibly get for these kind of songs." Brian Allen joined the VICIOUS RUMORS fold one and a half years ago at the recommendation of Matt McCourt (Wild Dogs), a long time friend who Thorpe met up with at the Headbangers Open Air. "Matt had praised Brian, and I thoughtthat he'd be perfect forVICIOUS RUMORS." His assessment soon proved true: from the beginning, Allen showed his great potential during intense rehearsals. "We immediately noticed this raw, pure quality in him. Like a snowball, something very big developed very quickly out of small beginnings. During our five-week European tour, Brian got nothing but positive reactions from our fans."
