Jim Morrison of The Doors supposedly once said “Hitler is alive and well, and living in Miami.” Well, I’m not comparing these guys to the fueher, but I’m here to tell you that metal is alive and well and living in LAS VEGAS!


For quite some time I had seen fliers for these guys at local venues and music stores, but I hadn’t gotten the chance to see them. Finally, one night at local bar and venue, Count’s Vamp’d, I was treated to the eargasm that was Vile Child.


Vile Child, which consists of father and son duo Geddy (vocals/guitar) and Gehrig (bass), along with guitarist Jonathan, and drummer David, are a fireball of metal, interacting with fans and giving it all they have. Playing since 2010, they have fine tuned their sound, and have taken over the metal community in Las Vegas. Every song is like a straight shot of hard liquor, enticing the audience and inviting them to let loose and go nuts.


If you haven’t heard Vile Child yet, go listen. If you have not seen Vile Child yet, go see them. This band never fails to please, and just like the metal that so obviously influences their sound, they get better and better with time

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
