Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the November 17 release of “Vicious Breed” from Pittsburgh’s NWOBHM-inspired upstarts Lady Beast. The band was one of the more surprising discoveries for many of us at the recent Descendants Of Crom Festival in Steel City.
The new album was recorded at +/- Studios in Pittsburgh and produced by Jason Jouver. A lyric video for the album track “Every Giant Shall Fall” is streaming below. Karl Dahmer is credited with the album’s cover art.
Singer Deborah Levine commented on the new effort saying: “I am very proud of the melodies and lyrical content on this album. I have a bit of a formula when I start writing lyrics. The music and feel of the song obviously help the direction I turn, but also I like to have a skeleton of the same idea for each album. The song of an epic story, the hopeful song, the metal ripper, etc. Each is important as it builds the album as a whole. On Vicious Breed, we have our first ballad, on which it will be fun to slow it down and have people hear a different side of us.“
Lady Beast is:
Deborah Levine – vocals
