Vicious Nature were formed from the ashes of Marshall Law, Cloven Hoof and Cerebral Fix, this however is no reflection on the music that they are producing, more a testament to the pedigree of the musicians involved in this band.
The band consisting of:
Andy Southwell – Guitar (ex Marshall Law)
Mark Culley – Bass (ex Cerebral Fix, Drown)
Andy Pyke – Vocals (ex Marshall Law)
Jon “JB” Brown – Drums (ex Cloven Hoof)
The band were formed in 2012 and since then have played a number of prestigious live shows in the U.K, the most notable being HAMMERFEST V. This being the launch show for their debut E.P……”FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE” which has received some excellent reviews and the guys believe captured the true” spirit “and “power” of VICIOUS NATURE. 2014 has seen the birth of the second E.P from the guys “SALVATION”, a slightly darker and heavier offering which was premiered on the legendary Johnny DOOM, s “METAL AT MIDNIGHT” show on Planet Rock and is currently getting air play and critical acclaim from a world wide audience....
With passports in their hands, VICIOUS NATURE ventured across the channel into Europe, playing both WIZZ FEST and IRON STEEL FEST in March 2015. In fact they were so well received that the show at WIZZ FEST spawned the bands 3rd E.P the aptly titled “LIVE IN BELGIUM”. Both the band and music press alike stating that this offering captures “the raw power and energy” that you can expect from a VICIOUS NATURE show. The new E.P, along with “FIGHT” and “SALVATION”, receiving almost weekly airplay on many rock/metal radio stations worldwide. September 2015 saw the guys passports in hand, take Belfast by storm as they filled the unenviable “special guest” slot to STORMZONE,s album release party in their home town.
After teaming up with Bearded Monkey promotions early 2016, the gig diary is starting to fill up nicely for 2016, with VICIOUS NATURE headlining a couple of smaller U.K festivals after making a well deserved return to Europe for WIZZ FEST 2016, the guys again winning over the hearts of the “sell out” crowd.
Most Recently Vicious Nature released their first LIVE DVD titled ‘EX CINERIBUS’ which accompanies the “LIVE IN BELGIUM” E.P. The band released this at a headline show at the O2 Academy in Birmingham.
