Crimson Guardian / Press

“Crimson Guardian, A NW Original Hard Rock/Metal Band, have just dropped their their latest album 'Sands of Time'. The new album offers a classic rock sound but with a modern twist. Crimson Guardian are often compared to legends like Black Sabbath, style wise but with their own unique sound. This provides rock and metal fans a great opportunity to discover a new 'metal friendly' sound, which is sure to appeal.”

"Taking a mix of classic metal and adding elements of 80s thrash, Oregon’s Crimson Guardian bring a modern tinge on the essential metal styles. One thing that stands out straight away is the production, while metal bands these days have a polished and crystal clear sound, Crimson Guardian have a raw and dirty sound. It doesn’t sound sonically perfect and initial impressions that makes it an even better listen.The bass is booming while not over powering the guitar work. A decent album for old school metal fans to check out. I love a raw sound on a metal album." Stencil 6/30/2017

“Crimson Guardian are straight up 80’s classic / traditional Metal. The style is certainly firmly rooted in the true, original sound of Maiden/Priest inspired Metal. The CD presentation is good, nice booklet, photos, lyrics a cool logo and band name, they have all the right moves to get into the game. The title tracks shows some nice progressions influences, an epic piece that runs almost nine minutes with a bit of acoustic guitar, some nice bass lines. JP -Metal Rules”

“Crimson Guardian, “Into the Nightmare” — The boys waste nary a blink driving incisors into this thunderous warhorse; Gatling guns may only behold drummer Sean “Flames” Quinnett’s ever-shifting (mostly white-lipped and frantic) tempo in awe of its accuracy and celerity. “Pray for forgiveness / pray to the sun,” Dave Jones commands over a razor-sharp charge of hell-dashed metal (clapperclawed by Jones and Greg George, sawing their machines to paint chips and coils), like the primo stuff adults reviled and posers thought too hard. But none will heed your woebegone wails, because if your nightmares move at this speed, chances are y’ain’t wakin’ up. Cory Frye from Gazette-Times -2013”
