SPV / Steamhammer is proud to re-release on May 20th, 2016 Virgin Steele's "The House Of Atreus Act I & Act II." This massive 3 disc re-release comes with bonus material and a huge booklet with new liner notes and unseen photos by David DeFeis. He comments on the re-release:

"We are honoured & proud to announce that on May 20th Steamhammer SPV will re-release our barbaric-romantic epic metal opera 'The House Of Atreus!' It will be issued in a special 3 CD digi-pak format. CD 1 will contain the entire Act 1 album, and compact discs 2 and 3 will contain the entire Act 2 album, plus the "Magick Fire Music" EP tracks.

"'The House Of Atreus' was a major milestone release for us and we are excited to have the opportunity to present it to the public once again. In addition to its appearance as a full length album, this Work was also presented live onstage as a fully realized theatrical production by the Landestheatre Schwaben, and the tour we completed for it was one of our longest and most ambitious tours ever.

"Those who might have missed either the album, the tour or the theatrical performance, can now once again experience this Work in all its blood-drenched glory and murderous majesty once again..."
