Virgin Steele's David DeFeis has sent over another exclusive studio update from the recording sessions for the band's new album, "The Black Light Bacchanalia."

I am about a day or two away from completing all the keyboard tracks, and we are also deep into recording the guitars and vocals. Edward as usual is playing 6 string guitars, and Josh is handling the 7 string guitars. We completed all the guitars on Necropolis (He Answers Them With Death), one or two evenings ago, and now we are completing TO CROWN THEM WITH HALOS. This is a mammoth track...clocking in at around 11 minutes. It is unlike anything we have ever released. The entire album is taking on an Epic quality, and is highly aggressive, but even when aggressive, it is still highly musical. There is great beauty combined with the heaviness...If you hear the keyboard parts by themselves, you might think that this is a film score, but combined with the drums and guitars and all the rest, it becomes something entirely different. I personally am getting more & more excited and into the album every Day & Night. Those journalists who have heard a few bits & pieces are all responding quite favorably. I believe that it will be a very important album for us...

New studio gear is arriving this week, so we will be sure to maximize the sonic potential of the album.

OK...stay well and thanks for listening and believing...
