5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent eighties metal – essential stuff,
This is one of my favourite metal albums from the eighties. Crimson Glory combines influences from Maiden, Priest and especially early Queensryche into a coherent own style. Think melodic twin guitars and an extremely high falsetto coupled with bombastic compositions. At the time this sort of music was dubbed “”opera-metal”” and it not too difficult to see why. If you like any of the bands mentioned above, and then especially their longer tracks (e.g. Queensryche Roads to madness) then give it a listen.
5.0 out of 5 stars Trancending,
I’ve had this album for quite a while now and I still never get bored of it! It one of those albums that you can just listen to over and over again and still find it interesting, sure, it cheese-metal to the max, but that makes it all the better! Gotta love the 80 sound, everything is so crisp and clear, yet it still manages to be heavy, the production on this album is fantastic!
every single song on this album is absolute gold, but my faves include Lady of Winter, Painted Skys, Masque of the Red Death, Burning Bridges and the epic, highly underrated title track (which happens to be my fave song on the album).
I’ve heard this band to be Queensryche rip-offs, sure they are part of the same genre but Crimson Glory do more than enough to hold their own, Midnight voice alone can do that!
Classic, essential metal.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantazy thrash,
This is a very good album if you are in to thrashmetal in the old school (80). A little bit of fantasy in it aswell…
