3 stars A welcome return to what they were once, among the top bands in the '80's metal. With ex Savatage drumer Steve Wacholz, Crimson Glory come with a new sound more elaborate then the '80 albums, but less enjoyble then Transcendence for ex. The album has very great llyrics just listen to Touch of the sun and The other side of midnight, but also musicaly speaking is good but non essential. The voice is something between Rob Halford and and the vocal from Sanctuary, is Ok, but sometime his screaming to much , i mean is to in front, to high without reason. Anyway on slower pieces Wade Black is just stunning on Touch of the sun is superb, and the bass player Jeff Lords is realy awesome, or maybe the sound of the album made him to sound so good and heavy.3 stars, for this one.

2 stars This is not very impressive to me. I´m not an old fan of Crimson Glory even though I possess Transendence, and think that one is good. I especially like Midnight´s vocals on that album. He is an extreme singer and a very powerful one.

On this their comeback album Midnight has been replaced by Wade Black, who has a whole other singing style. He is more of a Rob Halford screamer ( though not as good). That is not the biggest problem with the album though, as I can live with Wade Black even though I am not that impressed, it´s more the compositions that lacks the early day´s freshness and inspired attitudes. The sound quality is good and the musicians are clearly competent, but it all seems very uninspired. You can sense why this was the only comeback album from Crimson Glory, they had no more to offer.

I won´t recommend this to anyone but completists. A 2 star album for sure.

3 stars Crimson Glory - Astronomica 3 stars

The redeeming album.

After the last disaster, there is a replacement drummer and finally another guitar is brought back on board to fix the leak in the faucet. One of the defining factors of the band was the vocals, and sadly Midnight had left. The new vocalist, Wade Black, was not terrible by any means, but different from what Crimson Glory had going for it.

Aside from the much needed guitarist, the music was also a little more powerful than the previous effort. The twin guitar attack wasn't as powerful as before, but it was a step up from the single guitarist idea beforehand. This effort seemed to produce a decent record. Plenty of twists of hooks to keep the listener somewhat entertained, but the emergence of the 90's progressive metal bands just makes this one bite the dust. Still a pretty good album though.

2 stars Astronomica (1999) is the fourth studio album by Crimson Glory, a North American band. In fact is their first album in 8 years since Strange And Beautiful (1991). Nothing strange that this was their comeback and also last release.

Crimson Glory plays pretty much Heavy Metal with hints of Progressive Metal. It is in fact a 4 man band, but it looks like a solo project, really.

Nothing, nothing remarkable. Nothing really stands out but one phrase in my mind: "Endless screaming and a horrible drum sound."

Oh yeah, and don't forget that after 5 minutes of the last song you still have more.... perfect!

4 stars After an eight year absence since their last album, Crimson Glory comes storming back with the amazing 'Astronomica'. Heavy riffs, high-pitched vocals, complex melodies and grooving bass lines, these are just some of the things you'll find on this album. The music on this album isn't too far dif ... (read more)

4 stars Here it comes a review of an excellent album. Shy away from a masterpiece though, but a very well produced album, the sound is powerful, the riffs which are quite heavy at times, are somehow very interesting, with some egyptian kind of melodies.

3 stars A long awaited album that came after a reunion of the legendary power metal kings of the 80's, with vocalist Midnight replaced by Wade Black and drummer Steve Wacholtz taking Dana Burnell's place. This album devided fans' opinions and is mosty listed as a failure, but I wouldn't agree there. I ... (read more)
