CRYSTAL VIPER is a female fronted traditional / classic Heavy Metal band from Poland, founded by vocalist & guitarist Marta Gabriel. The band released its debut album in 2007, and since then toured in more than 15 countries, played in both tiny clubs and at huge open air festivals, released eight studio albums, and bunch of singles. So one thing is sure: they are one of the most hard working and most determined bands of their generation!
Their newest studio album “The Cult” came out in 2021 on Listenable Records (Rubicon Music in Japan, Hellion Records in South America), and the band was supposed to promote it on European Tour with RAVEN and WOLF. The tour, as well as all previously booked Summer festival appearances got canceled tue to pandemic, so to not waste time, the band returned to the studio. Their newest release “The Last Axeman” (out in March 2022), officially is a mini-LP, but it actually includes more material than many full-length albums. It starts with a new version of the early CRYSTAL VIPER classic and fan favorite, “The Last Axeman”, which is followed by a brand new song, and 2 cover songs. Its Side B includes 4 songs recorded live in studio during the #RockOutSessions series.
Except that, last year Marta Gabriel (who is an official ESP Guitars artist), released her first solo album entitled “Metal Queens”, which is a tribute to the female fronted heavy metal bands and female singers of the ‘80s.
