Tuesday, April 25: Crimson Glory, “Astronomica”

Astronomica was the comeback that wasn’t quite: Crimson Glory’s first album in 8 years was reasonably well-received, but the band subsequently went on multiple hiatuses and essentially only existed for the occasional festival appearance.  It’s strange- sure, songs like “Astronomica” were woefully out of fashion in 1999, but if the goal was to reactivate the band and reestablish them in the metal community, then the tune was an excellent calling card: the addition of killer ex-Savatage sticksman Steve Wacholz on drums made the musicianship arguably stronger than ever, and even if new singer Wade Black didn’t quite have Midnight’s distinctive presence, his vocals packed a mean punch, growling and howling with fury and fire.  This was a more aggressive sound not only for Crimson Glory, but for progressive metal in general, and really prophesized what was to come for the subgenre.  “Astronomica” had the best of both worlds: it was purely metal in the classic tradition, but added new textures and amped up the intensity.  The song boded well for Crimson Glory’s future, if only they’d committed to having one.

Done!! Phew, that’s probably the fastest painting I’ve ever done O.o Good thing is, I got that A in History!

Anyways, based on @beanpots’ awesome day\night AU and @exile-wrath’s fic! I absolutely loved both, and since I wanted to do a night themed History project, well, this happened XD

Acryllic on canvas and some sharpie and white gel pen for details. Only took like 12 straight hours to paint the whole thing .-. Don’t leave projects for the last day, guys. It hurts.

Btw thanks to my awesome bff @96rebo for listening to my midnight senseless babble and helping me pick out colors, even if you did fall asleep on me yesterday 😂😒
