Released in 1992, The Crimson Idol was made over three years and, initially, was a Black Lawless solo album, to all intents and purposes. The album chronicled the rise to fame of a rock star named Jonathan who ultimately meets a tragic end.

The re-recorded version of The Crimson Idol comes hot on the heels of last album, Golgotha, about which Classic Rock commented that the band “retain a level of credibility that precious few of their metal peers ever even aspired to, let alone achieved”.
