You can now listen to "By The Hammer Of Zeus (and the Wrecking Ball of Thor)", a new song coming off Virgin Steele's new album The Black Light Bacchanalia, exclusively at Noisecreep.

Vocalist David DeFeis tells Noisecreep: "This track is a good representation of the barbaric-romantic style of the group. It is raw, primitive and aggressive, yet also bombastic, majestic and progressive. It is dark and serious, but it still cooks and maintains its sensuality."

"But before you listen, understand what the song is after on a conceptual level". DeFeis continues, "The lyrics are about the coming of the mountain-fire god, and his hatred and fear of the goddess, and his usurpation of her powers. The opening line sums up how the creation of this album went, and it also sums up the 'never surrender' Virgin Steele spirit: 'Pain is me and I'm relentless.'"

I prefer 'When I'm Silent' instead of In A Dream of Fire, for example

Anyway, this album is great, could not be different ...

To be honest i dont really like this particular song...from time to time it reminds me "Through Blood And Fire" which is amazing track, but filled with uninteresting parts imo...
