The Curse of Crystal Viper

Posted: January 27, 2017 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff, General


Polish Metal outfit Crystal Viper was formed in 2003 by Marta Gabriel. In 2007, they released their first album “The Curse of Crystal Viper”. My copy is a rerelease on their current label AFM from 2012. The front cover art by Tomasz Oracz pretty much says it all, what you see is what you get. Traditional 1980s Metal steeped in lyrics inspired by the worlds of Tolkien, Doyle etc. Lots of blood and mayhem. I quite like what they created on this album, not bad at all for a debut. Five bonus cuts that includes covers by Manilla Road and Warlock finishes the set.

I took a chance on this and I don´t regret it.
