Fronted by vocalist David Häusermann, guitarist and vocalist Mauro Gugerli, guitarist Tristan Meier, bassist Loris De Notaristefano and drummer Michael Teufelberger; heavy new Swiss act Vicious Rain have released their crushing sophomore single alongside stunning visuals called ‘Blackout‘!
With their debut single ‘The Devil & Lovers‘ paving the way, swiss alternative metalcore band Vicious Rain showcase their unwavering commitment to expressing raw emotions, pouring their heart and soul into every note. The band‘s dedication to their craft and the sheer passion they exude leaves no doubt that their future is bright. Continuing their fruitful collaboration with acclaimed producer Manuel Renner, Vicious Rain embarked on a creative journey that push the boundaries of their sonic landscape. Renner‘s expertise and meticulous attention to detail brought out the best in the band, resulting in a powerful and immersive recording.
„While The Devil & Lovers was a bittersweet and melancholic journey, our new single Blackout is a fierce and unapologetically angry anthem. It‘s a raw expression of frustration and disillusionment, capturing the intense emotions that come with witnessing stagnation and toxic behavior. With blistering instrumentals and impassioned vocals, ‚Blackout‘ channels our collective discontent and serves as a powerful release for both us as a band and our listeners.” says guitarist and vocalist Mauro Gugerli.
“Blackout channels the raw frustration of witnessing someone you love remain stagnant, unable to change for the better. It‘s a poignant reflection on the hurtful reality of holding onto memories of how things used to be while recognizing that toxic patterns can poison their own mind. This song is an emotional outcry, urging listeners to find the strength to let go and prioritize their own well-being.“ – David Häusermann (vocals)

Formed in late 2022, Vicious Rain is an alternative metalcore band hailing from Baden, Switzerland, bringing several years of professional recording and live show experience. 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 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 their stance on recent and recurring personal matters without mincing their words. Believing that self-reflection is the key in order to grow.
