Virgin Steele - Noble Savage

Release date: 15.04.2011

Noble Savage is the third album of the American heavy metal band Virgin Steele. The album was released in 1986 by Cobra Records. Before Noble Savage recordings, original guitarist Jack Starr resigned from the band and was replaced by Edward Pursino, an old friend of DeFeis, whose guitar playing fit immediately very well Virgin Steele's music and style. Pursino contribution came also in the form of new musical ideas and compositions and he is still a mainstay in Virgin Steele's line-up. The band's frontman David Defeis considers this album one of the most important in the history of the band. The disc was the first in which the band was completely satisfied with the music and sound. This is the first album where the current musical style of the band is fully manifested, containing grandiose compositions with multilayered keyboard sound and more sophisticated arrangements than in previous albums. Noble Savage has become one of the most popular Virgin Steele albums and it includes the songs "We Rule the Night" and "Noble Savage", which the band still plays in concert.
