Mere hours after Polish record label Metal Mind Productions announced that it was releasing a limited edition 5-CD box set containing legendary Florida progressive power metal band Crimson Glory's complete catalogue, founding member and lead guitarist Jon Drenning made the following announcement:

"Crimson Glory does not recognize nor sanction the new CD releases or box-sets made by Metal Mind Records (Poland). They are producing our CDs illegally and thus have ZERO rights to market, promote, advertise, release, distribute or sell any of our material; therefore they have ZERO rights to make any profit from our image, likeness or music."

This has been an ongoing battle between Crimson Glory and Metal Mind ever since Roadrunner Records took yet another step in blatantly disregarding the band's legal requests to cease and desist all involvement with Crimson Glory by illegally selling the rights (which they did not possess) to the Polish record company in 2007. It is a glaring example of what a shambles the music industry has become, and it is crucial to the band that their fans recognize the reality of the situation: Since Roadrunner's involvement with Crimson Glory nearly 20 years ago, not a single cent generated from the production, sale, or publishing of ANY Crimson Glory record has been returned to the band.

"We have become disenfranchised from our own music," says Drenning, "with everybody making a profit from our efforts but us! As a group of hard-working dedicated musicians who have now given 25 years of our lives and hearts to this band and this music, it is beyond heart-breaking to watch these companies deliberately break the law and profit from selfish and downright criminal actions.

One of the best things about metal in the early 80's, particularly American metal, was the sense of "anything's possible" that so many bands embraced. It was perfectly reasonable for bands to wear armor onstage, slay giant dragons, or sport matching silver masks and have a lead singer called Midnight. As long as the quality of the music outweighed whatever image the band cultivated, bands could be as creative as they wanted, and this creativity would help define the energy of the still-developing metal movement.

Crimson Glory may have gained initial attention due to their masks and Midnight's mysterious persona, but their music was what made fans really take notice. The band's self-titled 1986 debut album is an incredibly strong power metal album, drawing influence not only from Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, but contemporaries like Queensryche and Fates Warning as well. The driving forces behind this release are Jon Drenning's frenetic guitar playing and superb songwriting skills, as well as Midnight's high-pitched banshee's wail. I love each of the first three Crimson Glory albums; each for different reasons. Still, I think that their debut album is the band's strongest overall album. Every song is amazing, and the album just seems to radiate that great 80's metal energy. I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it a progressive metal album, but it's definitely a power metal album with progressive elements.

Though it doesn't get anywhere near the praise that it is due, this album is the blueprint for many a current, fantasy-inspired, technically proficient power metal band. If you're into power metal at all, then this isn't even an optional purchase. It is an absolute must have album.

Edition Notes: Metal Mind reissued Crimson Glory in 2008.

"What makes a band unique? For some it's merely the music, while others point out lyrics, live performances or the group's image. But whichever is your pick, know this - Crimson Glory has it all. Simply one of the most underrated and overlooked bands in the history of the progressive metal genre, Crimson Glory is like a hidden treasure waiting to be revealed by new generations of metal maniacs. Their stunning self-titled debut album to this day remains a strong example of skillfully composed and passionate music. Catchy guitar riffs, intense drumming, incredible vocals - you name it, they got it. Get ready for the experience of your life....

Crimson Glory was formed in 1982 in Sarasota, Florida, back then going by the name of Beowulf. The three musicians who started the group were Jon Drenning (guitar), Ben Jackson (guitar) and Jeff Lords (bass). With the addition of Dana Burnell (drums) and Midnight (vocals) the formation changed its name to Crimson Glory and begun working on their own unique musical style. It took them four years to come up with the material which was soon released by Roadrunner and instantly received surprisingly good feedback from both critics and music fans. Surprisingly - because no one really expected such a powerful record from a young, debuting band. Nowadays compared to the likes of early Queensryche, Fates Warning and Fifth Angel, the album contained a thrilling mixture of glam and heavy metal - the songs stretched out from fast, heavy blows ("Mayday", "Angels Of War") to majestic masterpieces ("Valhalla", "Azrael") and beautiful ballads ("Heart Of Steel", "Lost Reflection"). Released in 1986, the album was truly groundbreaking for its time, and years later it can still leave the listener speechless.
