VELVET VIPER is back with another high energy metal album that is sure to appease your desire for heavy riffs and powerful drums. This album holds 10 tracks full of metal and emotion that you certainly need to hear for yourself. Led by the vocals of Jutta Weinhold, the band has put together a list of tracks that hold your attention throughout by tying the graceful vocals in with the power of metal behind them. COSMIC HEALER is set out to be one of the most intriguing and passionate albums that this band has put out. So without further ado let’s get into the music that makes this album the album that it is.

To start things off we have the track “Sword Sister”, where the first thing you will hear is the sounds of swords, which I must say so myself, is quite the powerful way to start off an album. After this intro it quickly leads into a powerful and energetic guitar that takes you away into the song that lies beneath. If this track is any indication of what is to come on the album then you will surely be in for a treat when you are able to find this album out in the wild.

“Let Metal Be Your Master” is up next in the tracklist, and let me tell you, this song packs quite the punch! Bringing you in with some fast screechy guitar it breaks way into a catchy yet well played undertone of music that does it’s job in drawing your attention. Reminding you that metal is a power that you need to allow into your life, as I’m sure you are aware of and most likely already have if you are here reading this review. Because let’s be real, who reads metal reviews other than devoted metal heads?

If you keep rockin down the list of songs you will shortly find yourself at “Holy Snake Mother” which screams with metal from the very beginning. Heavy guitars riffs that blast out of your speakers and into your eardrums will satisfy all your needs for heavy metal with a quick strum and leave you wanting more. This song holds a level of uniqueness within it as it has some sounds that are quite intriguing and are used in such a way that it elevates the song past what it would have been without them. These sounds I am talking about lie within certain lyrical portions of the song and you will just have to listen to it for yourself in order to gauge this phenomenon that I am talking about.

“Sassenach” is a song that truly holds the power of music tightly within it’s grasp. Using the chosen rhythm to portray a heavy message that ties in with so many things that are absolutely nothing but metal. Within the song there is a break into a heavy guitar solo that punctuates on everything else that we hear within this song. Every single song on this album holds a message behind the lyrics that are up for interpretation, and that is something that makes this album so great!

If you are looking for something that holds a ton of power and are a fan of music projects with a strong female lead, then this album is something that you need in your life! Music done in so many ways that it should, VELVET VIPER will be releasing an album later this year that capitalizes on many fronts!
