Sadly, the only album I have from these guys is 'Life amongst ruins'. I really like that album, especially 'Love is pain' which is one of my all-time favourite songs. 'Cry forever' and 'Never believed in goodbye' are very nice ballads too.

 

I owned 'Noble savage' for a while but was always trying to get rid of it - and eventually I did. I always wanted to check out the two 'Marriage of Heaven and hell' CDs one day too.

 

EDIT: According to Brutal metal I also have a CDR copy of the first 'Marriage of heaven and hell' disc and I quite liked it. :lol: I really have to listen to these guys again.

I like Virgin Steele specially 1988-1995 albums, i have these ones :

 

Guardians of the Flame 80/100 "Wait for the Night (bonus)"

 

Noble Savage 80/100

 

Age of Consent 90/100 Great Melodic Metal album "On The Wings of the Night (The Super Song!!!)" "Tragedy (lovers of MHR/AOR or MM/AOR will love this track is my fav with "On the Wings")" "Cry Forever (The great ballad)" "Chains Of Fire" "We Are Eternal" "Desert Plains (bonus cover Judas)" my fav Virgin Steele album and the best IMO.

 

Life Among the Ruins 85/100 "Love is Pain(Melodic Hard Rock/AOR) What a song YEAH!!!" the rating in Metal-Archives is ridiculous because this one isn't a Heavy Metal album is more Hard Rock & Melodic Hard Rock a very good one for lovers of both styles.

 

The Marriage of Heaven & Hell: Part I 85/100 "I Wake Up Screaming & Blood and Gasoline"

 

The Marriage of Heaven & Hell: Part II 85/100 "Twilight of the Gods & Victory is Mine"

 

The House of Atreus: Act I 70/100

 

The House of Atreus: Act II 70/100

 

Visions of Eden 70/100

 

Listening again with my cigarettes this very good band of Heavy/MM/Power(late 90's) Metal :guitbannana:

One of my favourite bands I have all the discography on cd but I think DeFeis loose the way... The fantastic epic atmosphere in the first albums are gone replaced by thousands of tiring intros, instrumentals & crappy ballads...

 

I have the most versions including "Life Among The Ruins" US version signed by the band or "Age Of Consent" first press on Maze with the different cover but I think the best albums are in particular order :

 

Guardians of the Flame

Noble Savage

The Marriage of Heaven & Hell: Part II

Invictus

actually "life..." is their only disc i mailed to de feis and wrote him to use it as a frisbie.....then i first met him a couple of years later during a promotional tour he did in greece and he remembered me and told me that i was right.... :tumbsup:

I would agree they are quite overlooked. Not only that, they have a really stellar band name. :) As well as one kick-ass album title, "Noble Savage." !!!

yeah, not only a great title but a great album also. and yeah, noble for the melodic/hard rock stuff i love and savage for the pure heavy/power stuff i love....sort of their music is also in this way...sadly nowadays noble wins the savage as far as their music goes....

    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
