How to sum up the new CRYSTAL VIPER album, "Crimen Excepta"? It's heavy and dark, but still very classic. Old school influences of bands such as Mercyful Fate, are mixed here with riffs that could land on some classic Iron Maiden album, and die hard Metal attitude of bands such as Nifelheim - not to forget about amazing vocals of Marta Gabriel, who sounds like the younger sister of Chastain's Leather Leone. Welcome to the world of CRYSTAL VIPER: a world full of Flying Vs, tube amplifiers, real drums, leather and chains! This is Heavy Metal all the way!
