Album Review

The eponymously titled Vicious Rumors isn't their first album, but it definitely is one of the finest moments in their lengthy career. At times sounding like hybrid of Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate on vocals with Judas Priest as a backing band, Vicious Rumors do one thing and they do it well: rock hard. There is very little here that rings innovative or distinctive from the rest of the heavy metal pack, but Vicious Rumors do their thing without venturing into pop-metal fluff territory or prog rock workouts galore. Die-hard fans will celebrate the recent reissue of this disc by Wounded Bird in 2005, and those who missed the boat the first time will be well-served in taking this for a spin.

This is thier best album. Its flawless from the begining to end you will be very happy if you like metal. i been a fan of vicious rumours for many years and i think this is their best. i love the ship of fools its reminds me of a old queensryche song, carls voice is amazing. try to look out for their first two releases soliders of the night 1984, (which vinne moore plays guitar on) and digital dictator 1987. all i have to say is buy it
