Radiovipers (2004-present) is a Rock band from Italy.
n late spring of 2003, after a Faster Pussycat's gig in Milan, Iggy, Mez and Manny, realized it was time to go back to their roots: To play Rock 'N Roll!! The guys, were previously band mates in a band called Carrion ('92-'97) taking their first step in the Italian Rock scene, playing across central Italy. In 1995 they released their first six track demo Wake Up Security Channel, and after this experience, they decided to pursue a different career in the music 'biz. Ten years later, their hunger to Rock was fed again by forming as Radiovipers with the membership of Iggy Street (drums), Manny Pearl (guitar) and Mez Ryan (vocals).
Soon after their autumn 2004 founding, bass player Sarah Stripe joined the band, and with her they supported Vain on June 1st 2005. In November 2005 their song Pusher, was included on the 'Perris Records' compilation, Hollywood Hairspray Vol. 5. On November 30th of that year, Radiovipers signed a two album deal with 'Versailles Records' of New York to release The Morning Sunburst (2006) featuring the influences of Motley Crue, Slash's Snakepit, Faster Pussycat, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.
Ray Colucci (bass) and Tosty (drums) later joined the band but the band has been silent since.
