VICIOUS RAIN SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “CROWN OF THORNS” — WATCH
Swiss act Vicious Rain — vocalist David Häusermann, guitarist and vocalist Mauro Gugerli, guitarist Tristan Meier, bassist Loris De Notaristefano, and drummer Michael Teufelberger — have released their third single “Crown of Thorns.”
“‘Crown of Thorns’ echoes the notion that evading one’s challenges can lead to greater troubles, ultimately exacerbating the situation. Yet, it also sparks an awakening to face the uncertainties, initiating a path towards healing and self-exploration,” says Gugerli.
“‘Crown of Thorns’ is an introspective anthem. It channels the raw frustration of grappling with personal stagnation and the difficulty of changing for the better. It’s a poignant reflection on the challenge of holding onto memories of better times while recognizing that toxic patterns can affect one’s own mental well-being,” states Häusermann.
Formed in late 2022, Vicious Rain are an alternative metalcore band hailing from Baden, Switzerland. The members bring several years of professional recording and live show experience to the mix. Combining influences as intertwined singing/screaming vocals — with a pinch of hope-infused singalongs, screaming melodic leads topped with crushing breakdowns — embracing everything from the heavy side of the genre all the way to the more intimate and melodic side. The band’s spirit is marked by their shared belief in the importance of solidarity and the role of the individual accomplishment of a common vision. Lyrically, the band expresses its stance on recent and recurring personal matters, without mincing their words while believing that self-reflection is the key to growth.
