Let's be clear, Mount Vicious WILL rock you.
Hailing from San Francisco and Oakland, with gigantic riffs, cutting bass, powerful drumming, intense vocals, and an unrelenting and urgent stage show -- Mount Vicious has what you need.
Informed by classic rock as much as post-punk and noise rock, the bombastic intensity and power in Mount Vicious is palpable. Sit too close to your speakers and you might end up bruised or pregnant. Mount Vicious don’t just play rock, they ARE rock.
Imagine Queens of the Stone Age covering Bon Scott-era AC/DC and The Minutemen, or the Eagles of Death Metal playing the Misfits and The Birthday Party -- you're on the right track, but still only getting part of the story.
You do not, however, need a fancy record collection to enjoy Mount Vicious. This is rock and roll, this is immediate, and this is now.
Their debut album, Don't Be a Baby, Come and Get It, was recorded at San Francisco's famed Tiny Telephone studio by producer John Congleton (the paperchase, Explosions in the Sky, Modest Mouse) and mastered by Bob Weston (Nirvana, Mission of Burma, Polvo) at Chicago Recording Company. Every element of the swaggering Mount Vicious rock and roll monster has been captured on this recording: block rocking
anthems like "Princess of the Brodeo"; stadium-ready guitar heroics of songs like "Skin Flautist"; moody pieces like "The Long Walk"....
Give it a listen -- you will be howling along to "Wherewolf?" and preparing to get the horn from the "Steroid Unicorn" in no time at all.
As vital as the album is, Mount Vicious is in their truest element with their live show, leaving it all on the stage in a brash set of soloing, shredding, sweat, and singing that leaves you completely entertained and hungering for more. Having honed their stagecraft to perfection over numerous shows and two regional West Coast tours, the
full force of Mount Vicious will be unleashed on the US during a coast to coast tour this July. These guys and gal never disappoint.
Fist pumping, sing alongs, and rock and roll majesty are the orders of the day, and the fun they have on stage is as contagious as any pandemic.
Prepare to be unjaded.
Mount Vicious will rock you, and they are also very good at sex.
So, Don't Be a Baby, Come and Get It.
