"I am so psyched that Vicious Rumors albums are now available again. By far the best Metal act in the world. The vocals of the late great Carl Albert are amzing as well as the lead guitarwork of Guitar GOD Mark McGee. I've seen him play with VR, as lead guitarist for ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAMER - Gregg Allman and with others. He is one of the world's greatest players and musicians. Geoff Thorpe still has kept the band going but no replacements can fill the shows of Carl or Mark! If you like serious musicianship and classic metal ala/ Priest/ Sabbath/ Scorpions/ then Vicious Rumors - Welcome to the Ball is a must have. Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!"

"You want heavy? Check.
You want melodic? Check.
You want fist-shaking fun? CHECK!!!

I saw Vicious Rumors late one night on MTV's HeadBanger's Ball in the very early 90's, and I was just frankly blown away. I rushed out with my fast-food-crappy-job-earned money and bought the "Welcome to the Ball" cassette, and I could not have been more happy.

Well 10 years later I'd long worn out that tape and for years couldn't find the VR cd's online anywhere (other than outrageously pricey imports), and then the beauty that is the thing of Amazon MP3 arrives and here I have my masterpiece metal album again!

Suggested tracks for VR newbies:
4. Children
2. You Only Live Twice
5. Dust To Dust
7. Strange Behavior
1. Abandoned
10. When Love Comes Down
11. Ends of the Earth
9. Mastermind

Also check out self-titled album "Vicious Rumors" for a handful of must-have songs."
A unique blend of poetry, aggression, power and skill!!!

"I consider this work to be their best.No moronic lyrics here. A heartfelt recording that will stand the test of time. Just listen to the song "Children"."
