Polish female-fronted heavy metal band CRYSTAL VIPER has posted its cover version of the VIRGIN STEELE classic "Blood and Gasoline" on the group's MySpace page. The song features guest appearances by members of VIRGIN STEELE — vocalist David DeFeis (who played keyboards on the song, in addition to taking care of the mixing and mastering duties) and bassist/guitarist Josh Block.

CRYSTAL VIPER's version of "Blood and Gasoline" will appear on the band's forthcoming limited-edition EP, titled "The Last Axeman" (due in January 2008 on Karthago Records), which will also include a bunch of other rare, previously unreleased songs and live recordings.

In other news, CRYSTAL VIPER will open for DORO on December 19 in Katowice, Poland.

CRYSTAL VIPER has previously shared the stage with such acts as CRADLE OF FILTH, ANVIL, DORO, SACRED STEEL and many others. Their debut album, "The Curse of Crystal Viper", came out in 2007 on Karthago and was later reissued as a limited vinyl LP on High Roller Records.
