Vicious Rumors - Sign With SPV/Steamhammer

SPV/Steamhammer press release

US power metallers Vicious Rumors have signed with German label SPV/Steamhammer for the world, except Japan. The new CD, Razorback Killer, will be released worldwide in March, 2011.

Mastermind Geoff Thorpe has put together 10 power tracks full of killer guitars and melodies. Larry Howe is the thunder hammer on drums, new vocalist Brian Allen has a wicked high range and power while Kiyoshi Morgan shredding on guitar and Stephen Goodwin pounding on bass.

Songs like "Razorback Blade" is a speed metal anthem, "Deal With The Devil" and "All I Want Is You" are classic Vicious Rumors. The thrashing "Axe To Grind" and "Murderball" is pure power. Produced by Geoff Thorpe for GTM World Wide and Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios (Machine Head, Ted Nugent, Night Ranger), Razorback Killer is a real metal classic.

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 (Night Ranger, Ozzy Osbourne) 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 with former members Mark McGee and Tommy Sisco.
