German heavy metal force, VELVET VIPER, has revealed the details about their forthcoming, sixth studio album entitled Nothing Compares To Metal. The album will be released on July 21, 2023 as a CD Digipak, Ltd. Vinyl LP and Digital formats via Massacre Records, the pre-sale is now available at THIS LOCATION!

Nothing Compares To Metal is a continuation of VELVET VIPER's concept with lyrics about classical, poetic and mythical themes. Just like on the first three albums of the band's new era, Jutta Weinhold and Holger Marx have composed all the songs together.

VELVET VIPER creates music that reflects the band's mentality and creative freedom, in a world that need originals, not copies. The band has chosen a natural old-school sound with only some little sprinkles of keyboard here and there, but as first single proves, they have captured their authentic live sound. Since VELVET VIPER has toured and recorded with an unchanged lineup for several years now, they nailed their style of music with crushing beats and great melodies. Give ear, a music video for the first single, "Invisible Danger", is now streaming here:

Nothing Compares To Metal was mixed and mastered by Michael Ehré at B-Castle Studio. All songs on the new album are about 5, 6 or 7 minutes long, because according to the band, the songs need enough space to evolve with its different parts and complex structuring to create the drama VELVET VIPER want their music to convey.
