After the glory

Revoilà Midnight the former singer of CRIMSON GLORY that had given us so many shivers on the two first albums Crimson Glory (1986) and Transcendense (1988)…
THIS IS Black Lotus that distributes this album in Europe in the form of a digipack.
The content one could await of an artist that ripened, evolved and that wants to stick with his era all while keeping the spirit of its beginnings.
That wants to say that those that hoped the continuation of Transcendence can go dress again, Midnight evolves in a strange universe, tormented, sometimes unhealthy but always coherent and reassuring. Titles calm mostly, in mood more than in force (a lot of acoustic guitars), in subtlety more than in stereotypical Metal; yes MIDNIGHT will please the most open ones of between you, to those that know to take the time of "to return" in the compositions and to savor them quietly.

I think that MIDNIGHT even can touch the public "Rock" of groups as PLACEBO (grieved I have not the decline of the friend Ben, our Rock specialist / Prog, on these groups!). Cat Song that finishes the album is all simply of the (very good) Country/ Rock additional proof of the difficulty to classify in a category this CD.

Some will be disappointed, it is sure, of not to hear rhythmic Heavy on this album, of others will be surprised, and at last of others charmed by so special voice of Midnight. As this is the case for this album type "out norms", I leave your heart and your ears to decide exit reserved to this Sadaka !

The small reproach will be for the Label that announces us wholesale that the words are available on the official site of the groupe…que one does not find anything leaves on the CD…
