New Album “Queen Of The Witches” Announced By Crystal Viper

Crystal Viper are back! The Polish metal act is returning after a 4 year absence, which was caused by the health issues relating to the band’s front woman and founder, Marta Gabriel, and which placed the future of Crystal Viper into question (last year Marta underwent surgery of her nasal and facial sinuses). “The witch is back” however, sounding stronger, heavier and louder than ever before…!

On February 17, 2017, AFM Records will release Crystal Viper’s new concept album entitled “Queen Of The Witches.” The album, which will be available as a limited edition vinyl LP, CD and digital download, has been produced by Bart Gabriel – producer known for his collaboration with acts such as Cirith Ungol, Mythra and Sacred Steel (and within their private lives, Marta’s husband), and engineered and mixed by Mariusz Pietka (Jack Starr’s Burning Starr, Lonewolf, Mortician). The album’s cover artwork (shown below) has been created by the legendary German artist, Andreas Marschall (Running Wild, Blind Guardian, Kreator etc.).

The first single from the new album will be entitled “The Witch Is Back,” and will be available in December. On February 18, 2017, the band will play an exclusive headlining live show in Munich, Germany, at the Heavy Metal’s Calling Festival, which will be an official release party for the new album.

More information is expected soon.
