Virgin Steele: "God of Violence Kill"; New Video Released

Long-running New York-based power metallers Virgin Steele have released a video for the song "God Of Violence Kill", which is featured as a bonus track on the new "Noble Savage" reissue. Check out the clip below.

SPV/Steamhammer re-released
Virgin Steele's third album, "Noble Savage", on April 18 in Europe and will make it available in North America on July 12. This re-release comes with 19 bonus tracks, 12 of them previously unreleased. And since 1986, it is available for the first time again on vinyl.

Virgin Steele frontman David DeFeis, "'Noble Savage' is an extremely important album in the history of Virgin Steele. It was a major accomplishment for us at the time that it was recorded, and an immensely satisfying recording that I feel still holds up quite well today. It was the most focused, most well recorded, written and performed album we had done up to that point in our career. For me it is really our first album."

This is also the first album where the current musical style of the band can be said to be found fully manifested, containing grandiose compositions with a multilayered keyboard sound and more sophisticated arrangements than heard before on previous albums.

"Noble Savage" has become one of the most popular
Virgin Steele albums and it includes the songs "We Rule the Night" and "Noble Savage", which the band still plays in concert.
