Virgin Steele Revisit and Expand Age Of Consent

SPV / Steamhammer have announced plans for a deluxe reissue of Virgin Steele's "Age Of Consent" this November.

This 2 CD digipak rerelease comes with bonus tracks, 5 of them previously unreleased, and a massive booklet with new liner notes and unseen photos. And since 1988 the first time again on vinyl.

"Age of Consent" was the fourth full length album by Virgin Steele. It took eight months to be completed, in comparison with "Noble Savage" that was recorded in a few weeks, and was originally released in October 1988. The songs of this album follow in style and content the music of the previous album. Before the release of "Age Of Consent" Virgin Steele toured heavily in Europe as special guest for Black Sabbath and Manowar.

David DeFeis comments on the re-release: "Our good Friends over at SPV will be re-issuing our Age Of Consent album in November 2011. To me 'Age Of Consent' is the album that I usually refer to as..."the one that got away album" in our career. When it was originally released it was sent out into the World without any promotion or fanfare, much like a soldier, catapulted onto a battlefield, naked and without any weapons. Because of this many people were completely unaware of its existence. Therefore we are absolutely over the moon about being able to present it to you once again. For this re-issue, I have re-mastered all the songs from the original source tapes, and...added several more "Bonus Tracks". Some of the bonus material features brand new compositions, and other tracks are covers that have been re-arranged and in some cases re-written. We hope that you will join us in celebrating our anniversary, and....we hope you will enjoy & play at maximum volume...these Barbaric-Romantic creations...."
