Virgin Killer

Scorpions Virgin Killer
 
 





Virgin Killer is the first of four studio releases that really defined the Scorpions and their highly influential urgent metallic sound. It was released in 1976 and was the first album of the band to attract attention outside Europe. The album was a step in the band's shift from psychedelic music to hard rock.

The band is in top form and churns out some melodic yet blistering heavy rock. Virgin Killer is full of heavy songs and exceptionally fast, innovative guitar leads by Uli Jon Roth. These songs are infectious and Uli's guitar solo on the Jimi Hendrix inspired "Polar Nights" exhibits the thunder-heavy riffs and grooves that make it a classic.

The Hendrix comparisons are endless, Virgin Killer is simply essential listening; a landmark album for the genre's development that made Uli Jon Roth a guitar legend.

''...a historic document of pre-80’s metal.''

''Truly one of the revolutionary, early heavy metal albums.''
