CRIMSON GLORY guitarist Ben Jackson has issued the following update
"BEN JACKSON GROUP [the band led by Ben Jackson] has their third record project, titled 'Gold And Dragons', at the final stage of completion. The album is a product of nearly three years of pain staking dedication and hard work and it truly explodes right through the speakers with twelve striking originals and one cover track, STEELY DAN's 'Black Friday'.
"BEN JACKSON GROUP's first two releases, 'Here I Come' (2001; Jaxhammer/Nightmare Records), and 'All Over You' (2005; Screaming Ferret/Escapi Music) both received numerous high-praising reviews worldwide and we feel the new 'Gold And Dragons' project is our best, most intense recorded work yet to date.
"Featuring Ben Jackson, Mark Borgmeyer, Rich Tabor, Rose Sexton, Emily Munger and special guest musicians, CRIMSON GLORY's Wade Black, Dana Burnell and Jeff Lords, the first collaborative recording effort from three original CRIMSON GLORY members in many years and with no sign of any new music coming from CRIMSON GLORY at least for now, this is the must-hear record for CRIMSON GLORY fans and will definitely attract new generation fans as well. Combining elements of progressive power metal and hard-edged rock/pop flavors, the record's song writing variety and mesmerizing production captivates listeners with something for everyone.
"BEN JACKSON GROUP is now seeking out management and record labels for license or distribution deals in any and all territories for our goal of a springtime 2008 release. We are also accepting festival or live appearance offerings to coincide with the release.
