Dear CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX fans!
As informed by the bands label, due to an unexpected vinyl manufacturing delay at the pressing plant, the shipping date for the CBP ‘Bronze’ pre-orders is now 15th November.
Thank you so much for the overwhelming response for this amazing release, we can’t wait to send out your packages. There’s still a limited number of deluxe vinyl releases left, as well as we have a few copies of the limited to 50 and never to be repressed ‘Interceptor’ shirts.

The last Crippled Black Phoenix release, the very impressive ‘New Dark Age Tour Ep. 2015AD’, concluded with a remarkable cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Echoes’ and ‘Bronze’ begins with a track – ‘Dead Imperial Bastard’ – that seems to have grown organically from that piece.
Yet ‘Dead Imperial Bastard’ is not a template for ‘Bronze’, rather a launching pad from which Crippled Black Phoenix begin their latest exploration of sound.
Pink Floyd do, in many ways, feel like the only relevant point of reference for this album, but the comparison is to their spirit, ambience and sonic palette; subtle links rather than a suggestion of imitation.
To my mind ‘Bronze’ is Crippled Black Phoenix’s most complete and accomplished work to date. Wonderful pieces like ‘Rotten Memories’ draw you in and swallow you up.
You drift and dream within them, rather than listening from the outside.
Only the most potent and powerful music can consume you in this way.
In a less soulless age than this Crippled Black Phoenix would be so much more widely appreciated. I’d say that ‘Bronze’ is their masterpiece, but who knows what more they have yet to reveal?
Sometimes it seems, bronze is more valuable than gold.
