Crystal Viper Posts New Music Video Online

AFM Records will release the new Crystal Viper album, "Tales Of Fire And Ice," on November 22. A video for the new single, "Bright Lights" can be found below.

In other news, the band recently welcomed new drummer, Cederick Forsberg (Blazon Stone, Rocka Rollas), who will debut live on stage on the forthcoming tour that starts at the end of November in Portugal.

The female fronted heavy metal act from Poland was founded by singer, guitarist and composer, Marta Gabriel. While the band is often labeled as a new wave of traditional heavy metal act, their new album presents a bit of a different approach. New songs are heavier, more intense, but first of all: more melodic.

The new album will be available as a CD, limited edition vinyl LP and digital download, the cover photo was taken by the famous Belgian photographer Tim Tronckoe, known for his cooperation with acts such as Nightwish, Delain and Epica.

CD and digital version of the album will include a bonus track in the shape of a Dokken cover, "Dream Warriors" (originally recorded for the A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 movie), while the vinyl LP version will include Crystal Viper's rendition of the I-Ten song "Alone", mainly known as the power ballad recorded by Heart.

Burning Witches Posts New Guitar Playthrough Video

Burning Witches introduced their new frontwoman Laura this summer alongside the release of a brand new single titled 'Wings Of Steel'. The song, which showcases Laura's vocals for the first time, is already available digitally but as a gift to fans, the band have decided to release it on 12" vinyl. The Wings Of Steel EP will be out on December 6, 2019 via Nuclear Blast and includes the aforementioned track, alongside three live recordings from Wacken Open Air 2019. Today the band has launched an official playthrough video for the song, which features the band's axe slingers, Romana and Sonia. You can check it out below.

Romana comments, "'Wings Of Steel' has a classic thrash/speed metal riff, that has its inspiration in the old school sound. It is one of my fave songs of the new record and that is one of the reasons why we have had the tune in our setlist for a while already. It has had amazing reactions live and will be a mainstay in our live set for a long time! I'm overjoyed to present you our first official guitar playthrough with my burning sister Sonia - I hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it!"

Sonia adds, "'Wings Of Steel' is a powerful and speedy heavy metal song. The combination of the thrashy verse riffs and its melodic chorus makes this song absolutely epic. I love playing this song live because it's the moshpit track, and when people mosh; it’s like a mutual exchange of adrenaline between the musician and the audience! Hell yes!" More...
