Testament)


The album features VICIOUS RUMORS new line up performing classic songs never recorded live like “Towns on Fire”,  “Mastermind” and “Worlds and Machines” along with new songs like  “I Am The Gun” and “Electric Punishment”.


The band is tight, full of fire and energy that Vicious Rumors concerts are known for! This also makes 3 live albums on 3 different continents and 4 albums in 4 years while non stop touring!! The ball just keeps getting stronger!!


Here are some reviews:

“A devastating sonic blast, storming, deadly, crushing, Virtuose and intense: That’s what Metal & VICIOUS RUMORS is all about!”(Metal Temple)

“Live You To Death 2-American Punishment is the sort of legendary live record that people fall in love with and are unable to put down. Featuring an excellent mix of classics with newer material, I couldn’t see any fan not loving the music found on these thirteen tracks.”(Two Guys Metal)

All in all, LIVE YOU TO DEATH 2 is a true metal release that I would think most fans of stuff on the “Metal Church/Anthrax/Exodus” level of heavy will love. (Pitriff)


In support of the new live album VICIOUS RUMORS is back on tour from June 4th to June 28th in Europe. The ”Live You To Death Tour, 35 Years Of Metal  1979 – 2014 ” features festivals in Croatia, Belgium,Holland, Slovenia, Italy and the Czech Republic sharing stages with bands like Annihilator, Napalm Death, Metal Church, Trivium, Masterplan, Tygers of Pan Tang and many more while other tour highlights will be concerts with amazing bands like NILE in the UK and ICED EARTH in Germany, as well as headline shows all over Europe.
