(MORE) RE-ISSUE NEWS!!!
Virgin Steele will release re-issues of their classic albums Noble
Savage and Age Of Consent the first week in February
2008. In addition to featuring new booklets and photos, both albums
have been re-mastered with bonus tracks added.
Age Of Consent will feature previously
unreleased tracks "The Curse", and a cover of the Judas Priest classic "Screaming
For Vengeance". According to VS vocalist / keyboardist David
DeFeis, “”The Curse” is something from quite
awhile back that we never did anything with. It has a very out
of control quality, and is meant to sound deranged and manic. The "Screaming" track
was recorded as if Led Zeppelin had walked into a rowdy, bluesy
bar and just stepped up onstage for an impromptu jam. It is also
out of control, wild and frenzied, and is different from the Priest
version. We have changed it 'round a bit".
Bonus tracks on
Noble Savage are "Fight Tooth & Nail (Roman Sword Re-mix)” and
an alternate version of the title track.
An Internet-only EP featuring
more rare tracks is in the works and will be available shortly
after the re-issues release. In other recording news, DeFeis, guitarist
Edward Pursino, bassist Josh Block and drummer Frank Gilchriest
are currently deeply involved in completing what will become the
next full length VIRGIN STEELE album of all new music.
