What it really is, is the soundtrack for a major motion picture that has yet to be made! And by the hammer of Zeus, I will make this film one day. I call this work a Barbaric Romantic movie of the mind. At the beginning of the s, Jack Starr a guitarist of French origins was looking for the right elements to form the ultimate heavy metal band.
The first to answer his call was drummer Joey Ayvazian and together they started jamming and auditioning singers. Virgin Steele debuted in with The Spirit Of Steele - Virgin Steele - Hymns To Victory (CD) of the Storm" a song loved by Metallica included in the compilation "U.
Metal Vol. Their style was and remains very original, a melding of American heavy metal and Rainbow's epic atmospheres. DeFeis, who also plays piano and keyboards, shows a particular liking for pompous and melodic arrangements, while Starr goes for a harder and more immediate assault. Fan mail was becoming more interesting.
Two letters in particular stand out, one from a young band, who were from Seattle. After the album, Jack Starr started recording his The Spirit Of Steele - Virgin Steele - Hymns To Victory (CD) solo album, Out of the Darkness. Meanwhile, DeFeis continued the band with Edward Pursino. As stated in the Virgin Steele's website "we never actually asked Edward to join the band, he just came down one day and never left". Supported by Pursino, whose style perfectly fit DeFeis' songwriting more than the Starr's one, Virgin Steele new lineup recorded Noble Savagewhich melts classic and epic music.
Today, this album is still considered one of the most important manifests of heavy and epic metal worldwide. Finally, the band managed to go to Europe, supporting Manowar on tour and gaining great approval from all quarters because of their live performances.
At this point, Virgin Steele were in their darkest period: their label shut down and Joe O'Reilly decided to leave, forcing the band to stop playing for a while. During this break, David DeFeis graduated in piano and composition and played live with a semi-improvised band called "Smoke Stark Lightning", featuring some famous musicians like his old mate Jack Starr and drummer Bobby Rondinelli.
InRob De Martino was chosen as the new bass player and Virgin Steele came back with Life Among the Ruinsan album of Whitesnake -influenced hard rock with a strong bluesy vein.
The song "Last rose of Summer" is the highlight of the cd. One year later, the band returned to The Spirit Of Steele - Virgin Steele - Hymns To Victory (CD) original sound with The Marriage of Heaven and Hell Part Ian album of epic metal full of melodic and symphonic influences, very progressive oriented. It has already been discussed between the label and I and it is a go. That "Ghost Harvest" bonus album has new material, plus rewritten and rearranged covers of various things we like or rehearse from time to time.
Q : The Spirit Of Steele - Virgin Steele - Hymns To Victory (CD) I am looking forward to the new "Hymns To Damnation" album and then later the box-set. How do you manage to make all that come together? DeFeis : I am glad you noticed. Not everyone does. Yes, we have tried to make each reissue as special as we can, and we have gone out of our way to add as much as possible. That particular The Spirit Of Steele - Virgin Steele - Hymns To Victory (CD) Spirits" album came about because I wanted to add something that was intense but unlike the actual "Invictus" album…and we began recording live and really liking what we were hearing back, so we thought, why not?
We are always working, so there is always material, and I am happy to unleash it in whatever form it takes… hence… all these extra tracks on the reissues. DeFeis : I am not quite sure yet, as we are still deciding on which tracks will ultimately end up being included on there. It will be fairly long, but probably not necessarily 80 minutes. We shall see. Check back with me in a few weeks.
Q : And a last question, Davidabout the studio methods. I know you mentioned that you went back to some earlier styles of recording. What did you mean by that? DeFeis : I meant that we started using some of the original analog gear that we used to use, and we even did some things on analog tape.
Hymns to Victory instead is a best-of album covering the band's career from Noble Savage to their latest album The House of Atreus Act II. The way to manage the reissues of the first two albums Virgin Steele and Guardians of the Flame, never published in cd before, created one more time problems between DeFeis and Starr so they decided to.

Virgin Steele is not all galloping songs however they are very capable of slowing things down and in playing wonderfully atmospheric songs. The terrific "The Spirit of Steel" epitomises this with Dave's rough but emotional vocals and some great orchestration. The piano and violin are used to terrific effect. Overall this CD is a good overview.
