Guest review by

1994 is the year when Virgin Steele stepped forward into the world of symphonic heavy metal and stepped away from the disappointing generic heavy metal style of their previous effort Life Among The Ruins. The stride towards well structured, intriguing, and mature themes really started with The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell Part I.

... simply masterpiece...

It's the first album where the band sounds unique, not like 2nd Manowar or typical heavy/power band. Also their first album with no fillers or weak ass ballads.

Rating: 10 An incredible album, one of their best w/o a question. There's not much to say about it; the songs are great and highly memorable. Pretty much the whole album is highlights, but some songs do get more listens (#1, #3 and #7 these just kick ass).
