SPV/Steamhammer will re-release VIRGIN STEELE‘s “Age Of Consent” album on November 28. This 2CD digipak reissue comes with bonus tracks, five of them previously unreleased, and a massive booklet with new liner notes and previously unseen photos. It will also be made available in vinyl for the first time since 1988.

VIRGIN STEELE‘s “By The Hammer Of Zeus (And The Wrecking Ball Of Thor)” video can be viewed below. The song comes off the band’s latest album, “The Black Light Bacchanalia”, which was released in November 2010 via SPV/Steamhammer. The effort was made available as a limited-edition digipak, standard CD, limited-edition LP box set and as a digital download. Each version had its own unique artwork.
