Video footage of a complete live show from the Polish female-fronted heavy metal band CRYSTAL VIPER has been posted on band's official MySpace profile.
CRYSTAL VIPER co-headlined the first edition of the Hard Rocker Festival in Poland, alongside such bands as OMEN (USA), SACRED STEEL (Germany) and OVERDRIVE (UK). The group's included two brand new songs — "Metal Nation" and "Bringer Of The Light" (see video footage below) — taken from the band's forthcoming studio album, "Metal Nation". The CD will once again be again produced by Bart Gabriel (SABBAT, KAT, METALUCIFER; also editor in chief of Hard Rocker magazine), but this time mixed by Andy La Rocque (the Grammy-nominated guitarist of KING DIAMOND) at the Sonic Train Studios in Sweden. An early 2009 release via the German label Karthago Records is expected.
In November of this year, another German label — High Roller Records — will release a special limited vinyl edition of the last CRYSTAL VIPER mini album "The Last Axeman". The effort will be limited to 500 copies (100 on blue vinyl and 400 on black vinyl), and will include two previously unreleased songs — new versions of "Sleeping Swords" and "Demons' Dagger", as well as an alternate version (also previously unreleased) of the VIRGIN STEELE cover song "Blood And Gasoline", which CRYSTAL VIPER recorded last year with two VIRGIN STEELE members, David DeFeis and Josh Block.
