Its not every day that you hear a new band and feel the palpable potential, but its here in spades on this excellent EP. Watch this space, because if Crimson Star aren’t on your radar yet, they certainly will be soon.”

— Mark Lacey, Power Play Magazine - (January 2018)

If you like your rock music heavy and loud I suggest you grab this EP as soon as. It will smack you right between the eyes, give you the mother of all nose bleeds, knock you over, grab you by the balls and lift you back up...then do it all over again. Rock is not is alive and kicking in CRIMSON STAR. ”

Robs Raw Music – (January 2018)

This EP will fill your ears with gargantuan groove-filled vibes, hard driven riffs and immersing hooks. ”

Bethan Jones, - (January 2018)

An EP that powers up from the moment it begins and just keeps getting better, Bay View certainly is an EP that sounds so good… ”

This E.P oozes confidence, and these songs deserve to be played on big stages”

Adam Beales, Mind Noise Network (January 19, 2018)

a confident, classy five tracks that show a band that is coming of age”

Andy Thorley, Maximum Volume Music - (January 5, 2018)

‘Bay View’ is a consistently brilliant EP that offers an authentic, one-of-a-kind take on Hard Rock. Future releases from Crimson Star are sure to be enjoyable if they can mimic the success of ‘Bay View’. ”

AC Rock Reviews – (December 16, 2017)

Bay View, is loud, vibrant and relentless – in the best way possible. Primeval riffs and pulsing bass are propelled along by a top drum performance and the whole affair is elevated by quality songwriting and catchy hooks delivered by a singer with a distinctive voice on great form. ”

Crimson Star come from a place where rock legends have been formed and they don't plan on this trend finishing anytime soon.”

Francijn Suermondt, My Global Mind - (October 22, 2017)

This release has blown me away and I had never heard of Crimson Star until this week!... My faith is new music is restored – check Crimson Star out and hear authentic soul in a soulless world. ”

Adam Cox, Decibel Geek (October 15, 2017)

Seattle grunge, mixed with Californian desert rock, and a healthy dose of British steel… chuck them all in a blender, press start, and the end result is Brummie trio Crimson Star. ‘Bay View’ is their latest EP, and is pretty darn striking, for an unsigned band and has this reviewer hastily checking the facts to ensure that Crimson Star are indeed ‘new’ and ‘undiscovered.”

Dave Stott, Devils Gate Media (September 22, 2017)

Up until this point of the EP, it kind of felt that the bands secret weapon was yet to be revealed and sure enough, the penultimate track ‘Euthanise Me‘ is exactly just that. This song takes the listener on a rather intriguing journey through the smokey haze of jazz infused blues reminiscent of a 1920’s Speakeasy whilst maintaining that rockier edge that Crimson Star most definitely own! This track was a big talking point in the Wardle household and when a song has that kind of effect on the listener, then it’s a sure fire fact that the band have written a song that really is something quite special.”

Martin & Sue Wardle, (October 18, 2017)

Birmingham has always been a hot bed for Rock and Metal music. Based on this release, Crimson Star are here to make sure that doesn’t change.”

Dan Southall, Down The Front Media (September 29, 2017)

If there is one description that hits the nail on the head with Crimson Star, it must be the words ‘hard rock’ but also add in ‘melodic’ as ‘The Pragmatist’ begins. Its bludgeoning melodic encounter is not only pumping magic but it blows your mind into a pleasurable void as you listen to the hard hitting bass and seamless shredding – this is mighty powerful stuff!”

Pagan Hel, RAMzine (August 30, 2017)

If you like a dose of riff driven heavy rock (not heavy metal, not hard rock) then Birmingham’s ‘Crimson Star’ are definitely worth a listen. This is ‘driven’ music based on riffs that are hammered into your ears like nails, rough and raw at times, chunky, hard and insistent, yep just like it should be. ”

Leslie Phillips, The Rock Pit - Australia (August 6, 2017)

The music is deep and rich with emotion and intensity. Rock n Roll is not dead whilst bands like Crimson Star are producing EP’s like this.”
