CRYSTAL VIPER's MARTA GABRIEL To Play Rhythm Guitar For JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR
August 3, 2012
JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR — the U.S. power metal act led by former VIRGIN STEELE guitarist Jack Starr — has recruited Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER) to play rhythm guitar for the band at the Keep It True festival and all other European live shows that will be scheduled for 2013.
According to a press release, "Jack Starr was quite impressed with the rock-solid playing of Marta Gabriel and asked her if she would be available to do some shows with BURNING STARR as the recorded music of BURNING STARR usually features more than one guitar part."
JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR's "Land Of The Dead" video can be seen below. The song is the title track of the band's latest studio album, which was released on November 11, 2011 via Limb Music. The CD was produced by Bart Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER, SACRED STEEL, LONEWOLF),and features cover artwork by Ken Kelly (RAINBOW, KISS, MANOWAR).
"Land Of The Dead" was recorded by the same lineup that was responsible for 2009's "Defiance" album: Starr on guitar, Ned Meloni on bass, Kenny "Rhino" Earl (ex-MANOWAR) on drums, and Todd Hall on vocals. The CD also features guest appearances by David Shankle and Ross The Boss (both ex-MANOWAR) on lead guitar, and Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER) on grand piano and keyboards.
JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR album from 1986, "No Turning Back!", was reissued on July 25 via Skol Records. This was the first official CD re-release of this LP since 1998. The remastered reissue includes new artwork (painted by the famous Polish artist Tomasz Oracz) and contains two bonus tracks and thick booklet with all lyrics and many previously unseen photos. The CD will be limited to only 1000 copies.
