5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent eighties metal - essential stuff 15 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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's not too difficult to see why. If you like any of the bands mentioned above, and then especially their longer tracks (e.g. Queensryche's Roads to madness) then give it a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Transcends" its genre 14 Aug 2010
By Dr Rick
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this album for more than 2 decades now, and it's still superb ... initially dismissed as a clone of the (marvellous at the time, in my opinion) Queensryche, I think Crimson Glory were actually closer to defining the genre of "operatic metal" themselves; and in defining it, they transcend it, if you'll excuse the pun.

There are absolutely elements of traditional 80's heavy metal to the fore on this album - driving triplet rhythms, twin guitar harmonies, bravado vocals and fantasy lyrics to name just the most derided. But ... they are all delivered *exceptionally* well, and within songs and (dare I say it) compositions that are reasonably sophisticated, original and ... just bloody brilliant.

The sound is polished, and perhaps a little over-produced and clinical; but I've listened to enough live tapes of this band to know that the musicians and the singer can and did regularly reproduce this sound live.

Basically the songs on this album have captivated me for an astonishingly long time now, and the musicianship and quality of performance make them truly stand out. I recommend this to anyone whose listening range includes heavy metal, or who's simply open-minded.

I recently learnt that Crimson Glory's singer "Midnight" died last year; his voice wasn't exactly conventional, but it was genuine, and - in the context of this style of music - *absolutely* unique and outstanding. This album more than any of Crimson Glory's others reflects his talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trancending 17 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album for quite a while now and I still never get bored of it! It's one of those albums that you can just listen to over and over again and still find it interesting, sure, it's cheese-metal to the max, but that makes it all the better! Gotta love the 80's 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 underated 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's voice alone can do that!

Classic, essential metal.

5/5

Finally got around to buying one of my all time favourite vinyl albums on CD, and while material remains glorious (no pun intended), the crystal clear mastering shows up the limitations of the original recording. Thus it lacks middle and bottom end, but it's still an incredible album. The vocals of the late Midnight are breathtaking, as are the songs.
