MARTA GABRIEL – Metal Queens (2021)

MARTA GABRIEL is the founder and front woman of classic metal act CRYSTAL VIPER (eight studio albums under their belt) while she’s also a seasoned session musician.
Now MARTA announced the release of “Metal Queens” – her debut solo album, which is a collection of cover songs and a tribute to the female heavy metal / hard rock singers of the ‘80s. “It’s a celebration and tribute to some of my favorite female vocalists, and a solid piece of heavy metal that fans might enjoy even if they don’t know original versions of those songs”, says Gabriel.
We have a great selection here ranging from songs by Lee Aaron and Rock Goddess to Warlock and Wendy O’ Williams.
Apart from the excellent performances – there’s many guests here – and the polished production, what we really like here is that “Metal Queens” sounds like one big piece, not just a random collection of covers.
This is good, very good female fronted hard rock / melodic metal…
