If you’re like me and can hardly wait for Crystal Viper’s new album on 22 November, you’re in luck, because they just released the first single of the album. It’s far more modern and melodic than their former work, but it’s still, in my humble opinion, a fucking banger.
For those of you who don’t know who Crystal Viper are, I’m happy to be the one to introduce you to them. Crystal Viper are a traditional heavy metal band (the finest, if you ask me) out of Poland. Led by the raspy, powerful vocals of Marta Gabriel, (who has a vocal range of four octaves, by the way), the band was founded in 2003 and has since released six albums.
Tales of Fire and Ice will be their seventh, and is set to be released on 22 November under AFM Records.
*Something else I think is worth mentioning is the fact that, due to their fans’ incessant bitching online, Crystal Viper withdrew their old album artwork and swapped it with the one above. Below is a picture of the original artwork, which, as you can immediately see, is quite different. I far prefer the mysterious, painted, unique art of the original to whatever generic gothic garbage that new picture is but, hey, what do I know?
