CRYSTAL VIPER To Release Debut Album Next Month

Polish female-fronted "true heavy metal" band CRYSTAL VIPER will release its debut album, titled "The Curse Of Crystal Viper", on February 25 via the German label Karthago Records (home of classic '80s metal bands such as NOISEHUNTER, BLACK FATE, GRAVESTONE, ALIEN FORCE and others). The conceptual CD, which will be distributed in Europe through Twilight Vertrieb and in the United States through Sentinel Steel, was produced by Bart Gabriel (METALUCIFER, METAL MIRROR, OVERDRIVE, LORD VADER and others), and recorded by Tomasz Zalewski at the Zed Studio in Poland. The opening intro speech for the album was recorded by the SACRED STEEL vocalist Gerrit P. Mutz. Samples of the three songs taken from the forthcoming album are available at band's web site.

CRYSTAL VIPER previously appeared on the "A Tribute To W.A.S.P. - Shock Rock Hellions" (Codiac Records, 2006) and "One Foot In Fire - A Tribute To Cirith Ungol" (Solemnity Music, 2006) compilations, and has recorded a cover of "Flaming Metal Systems" for "A Tribute To Manilla Road" with a special guest appearance by Piotr Luczyk, guitarist of the legendary Polish thrash metal band KAT. In December of 2006, CRYSTAL VIPER opened the Masters Of Rock Festival (Czech Republic), which featured DORO and CRADLE OF FILTH as the headliners.
