Biography

(1981 – present)

Virgin Steele is a heavy metal band from New York, founded in 1981.

They play what they call “barbaric-romantic” metal, which is very symphonic and contains many elements from classical music. Band-leader David DeFeis describes the music as “From a whisper to a scream, barbaric, romantic, bombastic, yet subtle, grandiose, yet earthy. A call, a shout, an invocation to Freedom and the continual awakening to the awareness that every moment of life is lived to its fullest potential. It is a force, a sacred quest which drives Virgin Steele on.

    "By the Atomic Jackhammer of Achilles, Virgin Steele fans, I double-dog dare you to listen to this album!" ....Is what DD would say if only he had a hint of self-awareness left. :(

    I'm so tired of reading the name Manowar when Virgin Steele is discussed. apart from both playing Heavy Metal they have nothing in common. Don't get me wrong, I love Manowar, but Virgin Steele is a whole different class from a musicianship Point of view.

    Junglemanchild, yeah, I think we've discussed where you come from since my last comment, and I've begun to understand what you mean! :) However, there are still many boring parts for me in that possibly grown musical variation! :) I don't know if they could make a "new Marriage/Invictus/Atreus 1" anymore though. They're getting tired and old! ;P Mostly worried about the vocals... DD wasn't that awesome on Timo Tolkki's Avalon... D:

    JunglemanchiId, is right. I do understand your point of view, BLB is so epic as Invictus or Marriages, but with sort of variation and cadences. However, i prefer Invictus.
