W.A.S.P. Unveils ‘ReIdolized: The Soundtrack To The Crimson Idol’ Details

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the landmark album release from Blackie Lawless and W.A.S.P., ‘The Crimson Idol‘. The record was a conceptual album telling the tale of Jonathan Aaron Steele, a musician who struggles to achieve fame. Once he realizes his dream, the excesses and resulting darkness of them is a storyline right from the pages of the real rock and roll lives of so many artists we know all too well.

What many W.A.S.P. fans didn’t know is ‘The Crimson Idol’ was intended to be accompanied by a film. One where several hundred hours of film were shot to create approximately 60 minutes of movie footage. The album is still considered to be the best of W.A.S.P.’s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all time!

Unfortunately, although the album was released and toured for, the movie never was officially released…until now.

Napalm Records now proudly presents ‘ReIdolized (The Soundtrack To The Crimson Idol)’, the 25th anniversary of the iconic hit album plus the original The Crimson Idol movie on DVD and Blu-Ray!
