The Vicious Rumor's History

August 27, 1979 - Geoff Thorpe moves from Hawaii to Santa Rosa, California, to pursue his musical career and start his own band. For the first year, before even having the band together, Geoff went to every concert and club show, passing out Vicious Rumors business cards, which helped to generate a interest in the music scene when the band did start finally playing out in the clubs.

1980 - VR plays the first "Metal Monday" along with Metallica, Motley Crue, Laaz Rockit and Exodus. Metal Mondays were metal shows sponsored by the San Francisco radio station KRQR, featuring the best metal acts in the Bay Area at Bill Graham's, "The Old Waldorf", the premier club in the Bay Area at the time. "Metal Mondays" were the birth of the Bay area Metal scene.

1982 - VR appears on KMEL's

VICIOUS RUMORS Vicious Rumors

Album · 1990 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Vicious Rumors' self-titled album was their first major label release, and as such finds them polishing up their style and steering it at points in a more accessible direction than the preceding album. It's a solid Iron Maiden/Judas Priest-influenced effort, though some of the songs outlast their welcome a bit (World Church gets rather repetitive) and the second side unfortunately seems a bit thin. In fact, I have to wonder whether deadlines imposed by the label or some other disruption caused them to hurry this album, with the more polished and accomplished songs clustered together on side A and side B being thrown together quickly to make the product.

VICIOUS RUMORS Concussion Protocol

Nightfly
Concussion Protocol is the 12th studio album from US power metal act Vicious Rumors. Guitarist Geoff Thorpe and drummer Larry Howe are the mainstay of the band having been there since the start. Other than them it’s another complete line-up change with the addition of Nick Holleman, Thaen Rasmussen and Tilen Hudrap on vocals, guitar and bass respectively.

The line-up changes have made no difference to the sound and it’s another rock solid collection of US power metal in the vein of most Vicious Rumors albums with the usual mix of mid paced and flat out with lots of double kick drum patterns rockers. There’s no surprises as expected, just Vicious Rumors doing what they do well but as always the standard of playing is high and the quality of the songs whilst not matching their 1990 self-titled album is as good as anything they’ve released in the last 20 years. In fact for sheer consistency it’s one of the best as there’s not a duff track in sight though it’s the up tempo songs like Chemical Slaves, Chasing the Priest, 1000 Years and Every Blessing Is A Curse that pack the greatest punch. A powerful and clear production also helps enhance the songs to best effect too.

Vicious Rumors are the benchmark I measure all US power metal bands against and for me they’re still the best and if they keep releasing quality releases like Concussion Protocol they’ll keep the competition at bay for some time to come.

VICIOUS RUMORS Electric Punishment

Album · 2013 · US Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Electric Punishment (2013) is the eleventh album by US power/heavy metal act Vicious Rumors. It is the second studio album from the group to feature the vocals of Brian Allen (after comeback album Razorback Killers (2011)) and follows hot on the heels of the live release LIVE You to Death (2012). Electric Punishment returns guitarist Thaen Rasmussen to the Vicious Rumors line-up, having last appeared on Warball (2006). The album features a cover of Strange Ways, originally by glam metal/hard rock act Kiss.

Vicious Rumors have a real classic and powerful metal sound which blends traditional heavy metal with the US style of power metal. Typically this is in the form of doing one or the other in each of the tracks although there is a couple which blends the two a lot more. They’re equally competent at both sort of sound but the USPM is most definitely their true forte. They have an aggressive near thrash approach to it that not even the harder edged (usually German) European power metal bands can manage. Brian Allen’s vocals work perfectly in this style, being just as aggressive as the guitars yet still retaining that crucial sense of melody that all power metal, European or US, has, and using this formula the band produces some real belters of tracks including Black X List and D Block. And yet they’re not afraid to show a softer side either, such as in the ballad Escape (From Hell). It should be noted that a ballad in terms of this album is still very heavy and aggressive, and turns back towards USPM about two thirds of the way through.

The more mid-paced heavy metal tracks are still pretty good but don’t stand out as highlights next to the USPM. I can understand the need for variation in a release like this, but I personally don’t doubt that if any band could pull an album off by just having the really aggressive numbers it would be Vicious Rumors. Out of the slower songs the title track is easily the best but nothing manages to stand out in quite the same way as the two tracks mentioned above or the opening I am the Gun or Thirst for a Kill near the end of the album. All of these are really addictive, pummelling songs and that’s what proper metal should be all about.

Vicious Rumors weren’t as such a new name to me when I was given a promo for their prior live album, but I hadn’t listened to them before. Intrigued, I checked out the live album and found I loved it, which definitely may me very excited for their next full-length and Electric Punishment most certainly delivers the goods. If fast and aggressive metal is your thing then you’ll no doubt love this one and an exceptional grade rating is deserved.

92/100

Warthur
Although fans of US-style power metal will find a lot to enjoy in Vicious Rumors' Digital Dictator, it's from an early enough period in the evolution of power metal that it still displays ample roots in traditional heavy metal, giving it a fairly broad appeal. At points, it feels a bit like the album you expected Iron Maiden's Somewhere In Time to be when you first saw the cover art - a series of NWOBHM-influenced song-rants about a cyberpunk dystopia - and I think it's broadly on a par with that album. Indeed, those who dislike the mildly poppier direction Maiden took on Somewhere might actually prefer this one.

LIVE You to Death is a 2012 live album release by long-running US power/heavy metal act Vicious Rumors. Having debuted new vocalist Brian Allen with the 2011 studio album Razorback Killers, LIVE You to Death is the first live recording to feature his voice. The album was recorded during the band’s December 2011 European tour with Sweden’s HammerFall. LIVE You to Death isn’t the longest live album you’ll find, containing just nine tracks along with a couple of newly recorded studio cover versions, but the album showcases that Vicious Rumors must put on one hell of a show when they hit the stage.

Vicious Rumors weren’t a band I was very familiar with prior to hearing LIVE You to Death. I’m not normally fussed by live albums personally but for people like me they serve as good a purpose as any to get a feel for a band I hadn’t known a lot about before, and it most definitely leaves me wanting to look into the band’s studio work. From the more objective point of view even without a history with the band’s music I can see that LIVE You to Death is a nice package for the Vicious Rumors fan. The setlist features a mix of tracks from Razorback Killers such as the absolutely stomping beast of a track Murderball, along with older material which originally featured the vocals of the late Carl Albert, such as Digital Dictator, although with only nine tracks it’s very much a choice cuts type of live release, and some of the past studio albums are not represented at all here. This is the first chance the fans will have had to hear some of the older songs with Brian Allen’s vocals if they missed out on seeing the band live yet. As I said, I don’t really having a background with the music of Vicious Rumors, but with that in mind I can tell you that Brian Allen sounds fantastic on this album, both on old and new songs, and the band as a whole put on a performance which is easy to get into the mood with.

After the live tracks the band also included a pair of newly recorded studio cover songs. The first is Sign of the Southern Cross, originally by Black Sabbath and the second is Running Wild, originally by Judas Priest. Both are solid cover versions which the band makes their own, and a nice addition to the package. The Black Sabbath one originally featured the late Ronnie James Dio on vocals and I think Brian Allen does him proud on this rendition.

In my opinion LIVE You to Death is a high quality live album and a must own release for the Vicious Rumors fan. An exceptional grade rating, for both the quality and energy of the live performance as well as the decent cover versions, is easily deserved.

89/100

Vicious Rumors definitely are a US power metal band. Back in the day 'power metal' was used as a term referring to music which was a bit faster and heavier than traditional metal, but not quite as fast and heavy as thrash metal - this was before Euro power metal took over and smeared everything with cheese.

Are you really sure, that power metal is the main influence in their music?
