Crystal Viper - Metal Nation & The curse of Crystal viper

 Betyg

Review1958_crystal_viper_-_the_curse_of_crystal_viper

After releasing "Crimen Excepta" in April 2012, Polish heavy metal act Crystal Viper are re-releasing their first two albums through AFM records, complete with bonus tracks. "The curse of Crystal viper" gets five bonus tracks while "Metal nation" gets six bonus tracks.

In terms of vocals, Marta has a traditional heavy metal vocal style, similar to bands including Crucified Barbara, Hysterica, Bitch, Doro and others. Musically there are clear Iron Maiden influences, and German heavy metal bands including Accept sound to be influences too. In short, what you have here is traditional heavy metal with female vocals.

The music is very good with plenty of power, great guitar riffs and some excellent vocals - Crystal Viper are definitely a band I want to see play live sometime based on listening to their albums.

If you liked the band's latest album (Crimen Excepta) then I'd definitely recommend buying these two releases - they're both great albums, and all those extra tracks that have been added make them even more attractive purchases.

The re-released versions of "Metal Nation" and "The curse of Crystal Viper" are out now via AFM records.
