VexTëmper, the official band of former TNA and ROH Superstar Frankie Kazarian, announced the official release date for their first album. VexTëmper announced that Doom Engine will arrive on April 7th. The album release follows their first single, “MPH,” which dropped several weeks ago. Kazarian plays bass in the band.
Regarding the single and album, Kazarian said, “(MPH) just kicks you in the face and never lets up. We started opening with it and it is usually a crowd favorite. It kind of sets the tone for what’s to come and gives people an idea of what they’re in for. All of us love crunchy, driving, galloping guitars. We are influenced by a lot of different music, but the common thread is indeed 80s and 90s hard rock and heavy metal.” “MPH” is now available on Spotify here and iTunes here.
