Vengeance Announces Album Details For "Crystal Eye"

Dutch hard rockers Vengeance announced that the new studio LP "Crystal Eye" will be released February 24, 2011 (Germany), February 27, 2011 (EU) and a unspecified date in March 2012 for North America via SPV/Steamhammer Records.

The band features original vocalist Leon Goewie, drummer Chris Slade (ex-AC/DC), guitarist Keri Kelli (ex-Alice Cooper), bassist Chris Glen (ex-M.S.G.) and guest guitarist Timo Somers, son of Vengeance guitarist Jan Somers, who passed away earlier this year.

Crystal Eye was produced by Michael Voss, who composed the songs with vocalist Goewie. The title track was written by guitarist Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon, Stream of Passion), and Tony Martin (ex-BLACK SABBATH) contributed ‘Whole Lotta Metal’ tailor-made for Goewie and Vengeance. The album closes with the instrumental ‘Jan`s End Piece’ which features the last guitar solos recorded by Jan Somers before his unexpected death.

The track listing for "Crystal Eye" is as follows:

1. Me And You
