Invictus is a good album. Virgin Steele is one of those bands I feel like never got the respect they deserved.
I agree with this general sentiment, though I have no sense for judging how much because I don't know if VS ever had a "heyday," as it were, and if they did how much of a heyday was it. Was there a time in their career where they could tour to 500-1000 people per show? Did their late 80s & early 90s albums debut in the top 200? Did they ever open for Maiden or Priest? I have no idea.

They certainly do not seem to be playing any shows, even sporadic one-offs, these days. They've been doing a real good job on the album reissues, but their merchandise presence is virtually none. I wouldn't mind having a VS shirt but I'm nervous about buying one from their Official Website because it looks like a Geocities page from 1997.
