In the winter of 2005, extraordinary Bulgarian bass player Geo Alexiev took on the idea of doing an instrumental album that was destined to be something different and special. This album was meant to be collaboration between Geo and four Bulgarian guitar players each with their unique style. This team effort led to the creation of the "Crusade" CD - an amazing blend of musical styles ranging from Rock to Latin, and from Jazz Fusion to Pop. The four guitarists that contributed to the album were Dimitar Nalbantov, Rosen Mehanov, Biser Ivanov and Vladimir Glavchovski. "Crusade" was independently released in Bulgaria in the Spring of 2006 with unexpected success among Bulgarian fans of instrumental music.
