Info:

The band was originally formed under the name Pierced Arrow in 1979, before changing name to Beowulf in 1982 and finally Crimson Glory in 1983. Ben Jackson and Dana Burnell were the only recognised Crimson Glory members to feature in the original line-up, which also included Tony Lee Wise on vocals, Bernardo Hernandez on guitars and Glen Barnhardt on bass. Jeff Lords took Barnhardt's place briefly before departing to be replaced with John Colemorgan and then later rejoining again. A guitarist briefly preceded Jon Drenning as replacement for Hernandez, and Wise was replaced by Mark Ormes before the band found Midnight in 1983.Shortly after becoming Crimson Glory, the members wore full-face silver masks onstage and in promo photos. Following the release of the debut album these were toned down to smaller half-face masks and then were abandoned after the touring for "Transcendence." Ben Jackson and Dana Burnell both quit Crimson Glory at this point, heralding a shift in the band's direction to a more commercial hard rock sound.Midnight quit the band following the release of "Strange and Beautiful" and after the rest of the band completed their tour dates with David Van Landing on vocals they split up. A brief reunion with Wade Black on vocals came and went in the late 90s to early 2000s before they split up again. Jon Drenning and Jeff Lords went on to form Crush with David Van Landing and then Erotic Liquid Culture, both of which also featured Ravi Jakhotia.The 'classic' line-up agreed a reunion near the end of 2005 - former touring drummer Jesse Rojas was also re-hired to provide additional percussion and vocals onstage. Midnight, however, was replaced by Wade Black for the second time at the beginning of 2007 following substance abuse problems that led to him being arrested for drunk driving (with a suspended license, no less). A new album called ''Metatron, Lucifer and the Divine Chaos'' had been planned but this was shelved after the collapse of Black Lotus Records.Midnight died at the age of 47 in July 2009. The band played a tribute show at the ProgPower USA X festival with eighteen vocalists, including Black, Van Landing and Todd La Torre, who was later hired to be the band's full time vocalist. La Torre quit in 2013 due to frustrations with the band's lack of activity.A rough demo track featuring La Torre called "Garden of Shadows" was made available for online streaming in 2012, but was not officially released.

Album:

CRIMSON GLORY - the self titled debut album and this follow-up "Transcendence" - by Metal Mind Productions, both remastered for the first time using 24-Bit process on golden disc, including bonus tracks and presented in a deluxe digipak limited to numerated 2000 copies.Crimson Glory's self-titled debut success was not surprising – the unique collaboration of heavy, yet melodic guitars, brilliant drumming and amazing vocals brought a true masterpiece onto the metal soil. But the band did not rest after touring intensively and immediately begun working on a follow-up. And so in 1988 Crimson Glory’s finest achievement was born… "Transcendence" took almost two years to create, but the result was simply astounding. Crimson Glory managed to come up with an album that featured all the terrific elements found in the debut and took them to the next level.The band managed to put out two over-the-top albums in a row, and not one dull song on either of them. Tell me another band from the who's done just that. Crimson Glory just had that "it"."Transcendence" delivers unbelievably catchy tunes, backed up by killer riffs and well-crafted songwriting. It's really not fair to point out specific songs from this album, but 'Painted Skies' and 'In Dark Places' are my favorites. The album also contains another highlight; the band's first hit-single 'Lonely', a song that was in the top of the American Rock Radio charts in several major market areas for over 24 consecutive weeks. The production of "Transcendence" is also a remarkable point.The drums on the record are a combination of both live and sampled drums. The band sampled drummer Dana Burnell performing live into a synclavier without any cymbals, and then re-recorded the cymbals live later in order to have complete separation of drums / cymbals.Guitarist Jon Drenning stated "It was a very arduous and time consuming way to do it but at the time it seemed like something we wanted to try to achieve; a pristine, clean sound and true separation of all instruments".Fabulous songs, a great singer (with a very unique signature voice) and memorable arrangements make "Transcendence" another must have album. Crimson Glory's unique musical mixture, followed by their characteristic image / silver masks (which definitely worked well with their Sci-Fi oriented lyrics) marked the beginning of a metal legend. This Metal Mind reissue delivers a superb digitally remastered job, balance and crystal clear. Added to this digipak is also a remixed version of the single track 'Lonely' as bonus track.
