“The Cult”, brand new studio album of the female fronted traditional heavy metal act CRYSTAL VIPER, is being streamed by NWOTHM FULL ALBUMS channel, below:
“It’s super exciting to share this new album with the world! Not only it marks the beginning of the new era of CRYSTAL VIPER, as it’s our first album with Ced, and first album for Listenable Records, but we are releasing it in really weird, dark times. I really hope it will cheer some of the Heavy Metal fans out there up. We really enjoyed working on it, as we managed to return to our roots, and revisit our earliest inspirations” – says CRYSTAL VIPER front woman, Marta Gabriel. “We woke up the kids in us, the same ones that were discovering first IRON MAIDEN albums with “monsters” on the cover, who were listening to the same JUDAS PRIEST cassettes in their walkmans again and again, who were bringing home VHS tapes with low budget horror movies, or who were reading comics and cheap sci-fi novels. Our new album is full of emotions, energy, and represents what CRYSTAL VIPER is all about! I really can’t wait to perform this new material live on stage, where it belongs!” she adds.
The album will be released on January 29 in Europe, and on February 12 in North America by Listenable Records (Japanese release date to be confirmed), and will be available as limited edition vinyl LP, CD, cassette and digital download. CD version of the album includes exclusive bonus track: KING DIAMOND cover “Welcome Home” (feat. KING DIAMOND guitarist, Andy La Rocque), while the LP version includes a cover of the SATAN classic, “Trial By Fire”.
