Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

Virgin Steele is one of the most underrated bands out there. Their unique blend of Melodic Heavy Metal filled and classical influences - trademarked by a wide use of piano lines and the amazing voice of David DeFeis - has so far gathered only a handful of loyal fans.

Six years have passed since their last studio album, and now comes David's new opus, Visions of Eden, which, as it is customary with the New Yorkers, is a romantic saga. Fronted by master vocalist/pianist/composer David DeFeis, Virgin Steele has now established a stable lineup with Edward Pursino on guitars, Frank Gilchrist on drums and Josh Block on bass guitar.

  No, even if you were right about the feelings Virgin Steele leaves behind, this band is still very underrated compared to amount of focus on other, much more lame bands...

Rating: 10 Just an epic album — what can I say, all songs here sound like masterpieces. If there is something to bitch about, that would be the production, but it's not that big of a deal. It's not often when it happens, that 79 mins album has so much high quality songs, great compositions and also in this case the brilliant vocals of DeFeis. This is as classic VS material as it gets.
