Vicious Rumors, Vanlade
21 AND OVER
Vicious Rumors is an American heavy metal band founded in 1979 in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
The band co-created the bay area metal scene in it’s beginning. Brainchild of Geoff Thorpe, the band has been active on the metal scene since forever, actively touring through the last 30 years. Vicious Rumors is recognized for their guitar works and harmonies, as well as the variety of their tracks.
Born in the Bay Area of San Francisco, in the years when the metal scene was really becoming stronger and stronger in that part of the States. Bands like Laaz Rockit, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Exodus, Death Angel are all seeing the light in the same years. Even though Vicious Rumors shared the same stages, venues and were (still are) even close friends to many of these young musicians, they focused on another music direction, only marginally influenced by the bay area thrash that in a few years will become very popular worldwide.
