Never in a million years would I have ever dreamed I would be singing for one of my very favorite bands I listened to as a kid, with posters on my wall. It’s still surreal to me, just crazy. Sometimes, when I pause, when all the noise has receded, I sit back and it hits me….dude, you’re singing for Crimson Glory! My pledge to all the fans, I’ll do my very best to dutifully recreate the magic and melody of Crimson Glory. I see it is an honor and a privilege and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of bringing it all back to life.”

About Crimson Glory:
Crimson Glory, an American heavy metal band that formed in 1983 in Sarasota, Florida, USA. Their journey began in 1979 under the name Pierced Arrow, then evolved into Beowulf, before they finally settled on Crimson Glory. The classic line-up featured vocalist Midnight, guitarists Jon Drenning and Ben Jackson, bass guitarist Jeff Lords, and drummer Dana Burnell. With this line-up, they rose to international fame in the mid-1980s and were considered one of the pioneers of the American progressive metal movement, alongside bands like Queensrÿche, Dream Theater, Fates Warning, and Watchtower. Throughout their career, we released four studio albums and one EP.
