"Life Among the Ruins" was the fifth full length studio album by US heavy metal band Virgin Steele. It was originally released in 1993 and it`s the first album with bassist Rob DeMartino, who replaced Joe O'Reilly, retired from the scene. David DeFeis comments on the re-release: "We will shortly be re-releasing our Life Among The Ruins album. This 2012 version will be in digi-pak form and contain not one...but 2 discs with a large amount of extra ingredients. On the first disc we include 5 rare & unvarnished acoustic recordings, plus a full band bonus track. On disc #2 we have included 20 tracks. These tracks consist of a large amount of newly recorded material completed just this week, as well as alternate mixes of some of the album's original tracks. And in addition we have also included a never released track from somewhere around that period of time. All the material has been re-mastered, and the package will feature copious liner notes, photos and unique packaging....!"
