As evidenced by our review of the album, we here at Invisible Oranges have a fondness for the high-octane, '70s era spliffs and riffs displayed by Christian Mistress'  on their new release, Possession.

The resounding vocals of Christian Mistess frontwoman Christine Davis are not unlike those of Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson on the classic 1977 track, "Barracuda," as Davis' voice writhes through verses about the afterlife. The excellent guitar solos by Oscar Sparbel and Ryan McClain and delightfully chugging bass of Johnny Wulf aren't too shabby, either.

With the album's release date set for tomorrow, we encourage you to pick up a copy for yourself. Or better yet, enter to win one here! To be in the running, tell us in the comments below what song personifies "classic metal" for you. The contest will end at midnight on Monday, March 5. You must have a mailing address in the continental US or Canada to enter.
