Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

If you ever wondered what a Power Metal band such as Virgin Steele would sound like trying to mystify and/or darken their sound, you will enjoy The Black Light Bacchanalia. The latest oeuvre from the New York legends takes several spins to sink in, which is definitely a good indication in my book. The first listen left me disappointed though, almost puzzled by the whole thing. And I am slowly starting to grasp the strengths and shortcomings of the album.

  This album gets better and better with each listen. It just needs a few more faster tracks to spice things up.
