When reading the name Vicious Rumors in metal fanzines in the last years, it most likely had something to do with the many line up changes. Most of those changes took place at the microphone: first there was Brian O´Connor, then James Riviera (Helstar), who was substituted after only one release by Ronnie Stixx. But all those line up changes (which hopefully will end now because Ronnie Stixx really fits perfectly to the sound of the band!) could not conceal one thing: after a longer weak period, Vicious Rumors have managed to write really great songs again! Razorback Killers continues what was begun with Sadistic Symphony and Warball: cool old school Metal, combined with nice solos and catchy tunes. The majority of the songs is, once again, in uptempo, but the great Pearl of Wisdom is a welcome slowdown. So we definitely have to watch VR in the future!
