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 debut single alongside stunning visuals called ‚The Devil & Lovers‚!
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.
The song was co-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered in by Manuel Renner (Senna, Consvmer)
„It’s a special song for us as it was the first one we wrote together. We immediately found a natural rhythm and flow, and the writing process felt effortless. Our co-producer, Manuel, was an invaluable collaborator, helping us refine the track and bring it to the next level. While Mirko Witzki’s stunning visual representation further enhances the song’s message and emotion. Overall, creating this song was a fun and enjoyable journey, and we’re excited to share it with everyone“ says guitarist and vocalist Mauro Gugerli.
"The Devil & Lovers is a heartfelt song that explores the bittersweet story of two people that share a deep passion and connection, but whose circumstances or timing keep them apart. The song captures the intense emotions of love and longing, while symbolizing the obstacles that can prevent two people from being together. It’s a testament to the universal human experience of unfulfilled desire and the struggles we face in pursuing our heart’s desires.“
– David Häusermann (vocals)
