Crimson Reign
Artist: Crimson Reign

Tracks: 5/unknown tape
I wasn't looking forward to hearing these guys play.  I'm a big fan of "prog" rock, so when Dave Beegle and Fourth Estate is in town--I'm there. I don't need an opening band, but what can you do?  Imagine my surprise as Crimson Reign treated my ears to some great heavy instumental "prog" rock along the lines of Fourth Estate. Their musicianship is outstanding--somebody please sign this band.  My only complaint is that their music isn't available on CD and there wasn't more of it, but that'll come with time.
