Polish female fronted Heavy Metal act CRYSTAL VIPER released new lyric video / digital single, “The Cult”, which also is the title track from the upcoming studio album.
“I think that the title track, is one of the most representative ones when it comes to our new album” says CRYSTAL VIPER front woman, Marta Gabriel. “It has this gloomy atmosphere, easy-to-remember vocal line, and very classic sounding guitar riffs and harmonies, which dominated the new album. MAIDEN, PRIEST, BLACK SABBATH, MERCYFUL FATE and DIAMOND HEAD – it’s where it’s all coming from, this is the core and the roots of CRYSTAL VIPER, the classic heavy metal. I’m very excited to share it with the world!” she adds.
CRYSTAL VIPER’s 8th studio album entitled “The Cult” will be released on January 29 in Europe, and on February 12 in USA and Canada, on Listenable Records. It will be available as CD, vinyl LP, limited edition cassette tape and digital download.
