Customer Reviews

The result, although not so bad, is at least pathetic.

This album rocks and will always stay in my collection even after I wear this CD out I will then replace it again.

The new Crimson Glory album "Astronomica" Is everything that i hoped it would be. I have been a fan since the release of the self titled album in 1986. The new album seems to pick up where Transcendence left off. The style is more in the same direction as the first two albums, though it's not quite as overproduced or polished as Transcendence was. There is an occasional touch of "groove" reminescent of the Strange and Beautiful album but all in good taste and nowhere near the sounds on Strange. Overall the album is powerful and heavy. I believe that anyone who was a crimson glory fan in the past will not be disappointed. The sound is new and fresh, but exactly what we all would expect from Crimson Glory.I'm glad they are back! Long live Crimson Glory!!!!!!!

The long awaited CD from progressive metalists Crimson Glory is finallly here, it it was worth the wait. But do not expect it to be a direct continuance of "Transendance" because 12 years have passed since the recording of that album, and not only do they have a new vocalist, but new musical influences have crept into their sound as well.Wade Black has a unique voice that perfectly fits their updated sound. I still love Mdnights voice, but Black is a very suitable replacement.The new songs have a very 90's sound without treading into alternative bandwagon territory. Jeff Lords' bass is real loud in the mix, (i.e. Chilli peppers). The rhythms have a bit more groove in them, and the guitar sound is noticably heavier. They are a couple of good moody songs like "The Other Side Of Midnight" and "Cydonia" that resemble the Crimson Glory of old. In General, This is a new band with an updated sound, but by no means are they selling out! This is definately a great way to allow fans to forgive them for the less than impressive "Strange and Beautiful" CD from 1991.

OK SO THIS ONE HAS THE FANS DIVIDED...YES THERE IS NO WAY THIS IS TRANSENDANCE, BUT SO WHAT...TIME MOVES ON AND IN MY OPINION THIS IS A FITTING RETURN FOR A HIGHLY UNDERATED BAND! THINK ABOUT IT WHAT IF THEY HAD RETURNED WITH STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL II! ARGGGG! THIS CD BRIMS WITH CLASS. JUST TRY "EDGE OF FOREVER" ,"ASTRONOMICA" "TOUCH THE SUN"! SHEER GENIUS.....AND I FOR ONE AM GLAD TO WELCOME THEM BACK! ARE YOU?

I don't care what anybody else says, I really like this new album from Crimson Glory. And while Midnight no longer has vocal duties, his replacement Wade Black does a superb job. I will admit though that he sounds more like Rob Halford. Each of these songs is quite powerful in its own way. My faves on this CD are War of the Worlds, Astronomica, Edge of Forever, and Cydonia. Overall, Astronomica manages to recapture most of Crimson Glory's power after the Strange and Beautiful debacle and moves it into a slightly heavier and more powerful direction. Definitely worth the money. One of the best metal releases of the decade.

Listen people, this album stands on it's own without any help from me, but I have to say my peace. It is a GOOD album. Is it great, to me it actually is. I enjoy Drenning's guitar work, his solos seem to fit the song as good as any soloist out there, and anywhere that I can get his work I am happy.

Is it as good as Transcendence? No, it's not. But you know what, that was an AMAZING album, period. There was no way that they could repeat it, yet anyway.

For fans out there, check out Crimson Glory's website, they have a new album in the works. For those interested in checking out some good, metal, buy this cd. Give it a couple of listens, put your ear on the lead guitar, and be impressed. Thanks guys, keep putting out the music and I'll keep buying.

Astronomica is the fourth full-length album from Crimson Glory. It was released in 1999. Ten tracks are contained; one of these--the album-opening "March to Glory"--is an instrumental. The material is in a hard rock musical direction. Altogether, I think that the songwriting is satisfying, the musicianship is tight, and the sound quality is gratifying. Jon Drenning does a solid job with the guitar work. As for Wade Black, he is a versatile singer. Jeff Lords' bass guitar playing is prominent in the mix. Also, the album contains sparing keyboard work. My favorite pieces are "March to Glory," "Touch the Sun," and "Cydonia." "March to Glory" is an interesting, engaging, and majestic instrumental. The epic-sounding "Touch the Sun" displays an indelible chorus and hard-driving bass guitar playing from Lords. The stately, album-closing "Cydonia" exhibits an intro that consists of attractive guitar work from Drenning and a memorable refrain. Other compositions that I enjoy are "War of the Worlds," "Astronomica," and "Cyber-Christ." The energy-filled, furious "War of the Worlds" has an odd ending section of keyboard playing. "Astronomica" features a creative, exotic beginning and a pleasing main guitar riff from Drenning. "Cyber-Christ" sports a taut principal guitar riff from Drenning. The CD booklet includes the song lyrics and a color photo of the band. The album cover artwork is interesting. Astronomica is a good piece of work from Crimson Glory.
