NEW ALBUM “RAZORBACK KILLER” COMING MARCH 2011
Metal masters VICIOUS RUMORS have just signed with German label Steamhammer/SPV for the world (except Japan). The new CD “Razorback Killer” will be released worldwide in March 2011. The new Album is Vicious Rumors at their very best!
VICIOUS RUMORS mastermind Geoff Thorpe has put together 10 powerful tracks full of killer guitars and melodies. Larry Howe is hammering on the drums, new vocalist Brian Allen has a wicked high range and power, while Kiyoshi Morgan is shredding on guitar and Stephen Goodwin is pounding the bass. Songs like ‘Razorback Blade’ (a speed metal anthem), ‘Deal with the Devil’ and ‘All I Want Is You’ are classic VICIOUS RUMORS. The thrashing ‘Axe to Grind’ and ‘Murderbal’ are pure power. The album was produced by Geoff Thorpe for GTM Worldwide and Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios (Machine Head, Ted Nugent, Nightranger).
VICIOUS RUMORS is very excited to have Mark McGee return to the band on guitar for 2 songs in a very special reunion on this new CD. Geoff and Mark trading solos and doing harmonies in the studio just like the old days! VICIOUS RUMORS was honored to have Brad Gillis (Nightranger, Ozzy) make a guest appearance for a blazing solo. Just when you thought you were safe Eric Peterson (Testament) records a wicked harmony and shred solo on the the killer track ‘Murderball’. With these songs and the new “old” logo VICIOUS RUMORS keeps the ball rolling!!!
VICIOUS RUMORS is currently on tour all over Europe. They will co-headline the Keep It true Festival in Germany in April 2011 with a “Tribute to Carl Albert” featuring Carl Albert’s son Kevin on vocals, and former members Mark McGee and Tommy Sisco.
