Polish female-fronted traditional heavy metal act CRYSTAL VIPER will enter MP Studio in Poland in December with producer Bart Gabriel (JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, LONEWOLF, SABBAT) and sound engineer Mariusz Pietka to begin recording its fourth album, “Crimen Excepta”. The concept effort about holy inquisition, black magic and witches, where fiction will be mixed with historical facts, will be released on April 27, 2012, via AFM Records.
CRYSTAL VIPER will play its last German show of 2011 at the 15 Years Metal Addiction – AFM Festival on Saturday, November 26 at Markthalle in Hamburg.
CRYSTAL VIPER‘s last album, “Legends”, was released in October 2010 via AFM Records. The CD’s lyrics were based on the original Polish legends from the middle ages. The effort’s cover artwork was painted by the French artist Chris Moyen, who has previously worked with SLAYER, TRIVIUM, BEHERIT and BLASPHEMY.
