Profile Obscure AOR rock band from South Florida formed by brothers Rick and Serge Di Lorenzo initially to play heavy metal music. Their self-titled album came out in 1985 via No Parking Records with a big polished production by Ronnie Rogers and quickly got airplay on four South Florida radio stations (WSHE, WKGR, WLRN and WAIL) with a song called Dancers in the Night. Station WSHE went as far as adding it to medium rotation.

Though Viktim doesn`t sound much like anyone else, the band used Duran Duran, the Fixx, the Thompson Twins and U2 as guidelines while recording. With all that British inspiration, Viktim, with its blend of hard rock and techno-pop, still sounds like an American band. Standout tracks are ‘I Live For Your Love’ and ‘Tell Me Goodbye’.

    I’ve Known these lads for years – great musicians, especially Serge drummer – we wanted him for our band when Phils (Rudd) seat was open in 1983 because of his first early retirement – unfortunately Serge turned as down to continue his career with his band Viktim.
    Always wished them the best great lads, had great time with them…

    Michael long time my friend; lets! I am game….contact me through Facebook message or here.
    By the way; I assume the Brian Johnson who wrote that above is from AC/DC, maybe I can contact him to join us this time instead of me joining them… 😉
