Ex-Crimson Glory guitarist Ben Jackson has just released his second album, his first for Screaming Ferret Wreckords entitled "All Over You", and it absolutely rocks! This five-piece band with a beautiful female back-up singer never lets up through ten slices of pure hard rock/progressive bliss - not a ballad in sight. There are tinges of Dream Theater, Motley Crue, BLS, old Metallica and Crimson Glory - ex-Crimson Glory vocalist Midnight contributes backing vocals on "Rock & Roll Heaven (or bust)"; it's progressive heavy metal with some eighties influences. The band is pretty tight and they can get a really good groove happening. Progressive for the most part, but with a heavy sound too. “All Over You” should appeal to many fans of hard rock, metal, progressive and power metal.
I just got this disc on Friday and can't stop listening to it. I rate it a solid 4.5 stars.
Check these guys out at http://www.benjacksongroup.com and hear a full MP3 of "Mean Machine" here.

I'm on it just as soon as I get home from work... :wink: thanks for the tip- always great to find new bands.

I'm glad you're enjoying it, AngelStrings. I can't get enough of this disc and I've ordered his debut CD now as well.
Mean Machine is merely a taste... the entire disc is fantastic.
