Believe it or not, Polish trad metallers Crystal Viper have just dropped their 8th (!!) full lengther. Their Listenable debut “The Cult” just hit the shelves giving the perfect opportunity for vox/axeperson Marta Gabriel to make her RAM debut. We go over the ins and outs of the new album plus we discuss working with Jack Starr’s Burning Starr and the band’s predilection for cover songs. You gotta hear the new King Diamond cover!! Also we go over the charges against Jon Schaffer and the ramification on Iced Earth, pay tribute to the “So Far, So Good…So What!” album, and pay off a wage to thrash veterans Sacrifice. Musically, we crank the new CV and cool stuff from Coffins, Gatecreeper, Xentrix, Loudblast, the legendary Repulsion, Wolves Attack! and introduce Cali “geek metal” bashers Repaid in Blood in our “Indie Spotlight”. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!
