A HILL TO DIE UPON - INFINITE TITANIC (COLOR VINYL)

Death metal blackened to perfection. A Hill to Die Upon is everything a fan of grindcore, death metal, metal core and black metal can agree on. The songs are technical, heavy, epic and extremely dark... From the amazing album art to the battle-worthy music, this 2009 record impresses at every turn. Expect more riffs and incredible hooks on this album than many bands put on 10 albums, period. And yes, believe it or not the drummer is a human, not a drum machine - he's just THAT amazing! For fans of Behemoth and Crimson Moonlight. This comes to you straight from the cornfields of Illinois!

ACCUSER - AGITATION

When talking about Teutonic (German) Thrash Legend Pioneers it's essential to speak of ACCUSER with the same hushed reverence as SODOM, KREATOR, and DESTRUCTION. ACCUSER is a thrash metal band from Kreuztal, Germany that formed in the early 80's flying the crunchy speed & thrash metal flag with all the fervor of the most intense mosh pit imaginable. Despite not landing a contract with a major label for their early albums, the band continued to release a string of successful underground releases before disbanding for eight years. After Frank and RenÚ decided to get Accuser back together, the saga continued with the band releasing one album with Century Media and their three most recent albums with Metal Blade Records. The guitars are energetic and thick as a brick with aggressive melodic vocals. ACCUSER is the perfect band for those who worship at the altar of technical thrash and speed metal in the vein of classic Metallica, Slayer, Believer, Death Angel, Dark Angel and Deliverance. With such strong lyrical content and musical brilliance, fans can now have access to these previously high-priced collectibles. AGITATION's 2023 Remaster on Brutal Planet Records is essential head-banging! This is pure thrash metal brutality like never before - it is SO stinkin' heavy! Limited to just 300 copies on Silver Bullet Vinyl - and yes indeed - this is the first time this has ever been available on vinyl - so get your copies now!

ACCUSER - REFLECTIONS

Reflections is a pulverizing, knee-jerking, neck-snapping, head-banging assault to the ears. Accuser add some new, more modern ideas to their already aggressive thrash sound and come up with a cross between Machine Head and Testament with a Megadeth-like accessibility. This is one of those discs that are dangerous to play in your car because speed limits tend to be forgotten. Accuser are certainly one of the best, albeit one of the most unknown, of the thrash metal genre. Century Media released this disc in America with similar artwork and the exact same track listing and order. As far as I know, this is the only AccužER to see release in the US Should also mention that "Reflections" was produced by Alex Perialas who is know for his work with such bands as Testament and Wrathchild America.

ANTESTOR - OMEN (COLOR VINYL)

Bombworks Records is starting with our best selling extreme metal release ever - ANTESTOR - OMEN (buy the CD if you don't have it!). While listening to Omen, close your eyes and imagine sitting in the midst of an enormous abandoned European cathedral. Lights are dimmed and occasionally you notice a slight wiff of the priestly incense of years gone by. The atmosphere is chilling, even mystifying. Your physical senses are pulsating with chaotic anticipation. You are mesmerized. Hailing from Norway, Christian black metal's most prolific and infamous band returns with the 2012 release of Omen, a beautifully anti-blasphemous epic masterpiece! Formed in 1990 under the name Crush Evil, Antestor means "testify" or "call to witness" in Latin. During the 1990s they received serious death threats from black metal titans Euronymous, Varg Vikernes and Faust. Persecution only intensified their efforts, and the band is credited for starting the northern European Christian extreme metal scene. In fact, in an almost ironic twist of fate, Jan Axel Blomberg (better known as Hellhammer, the drummer for Mayhem) was Antestor's session drummer on two releases. The band's brand of black/doom metal carried such a reputation that Antestor is the only Christian band to have an album released by Cacophonous Records, home to bands such as Dimmu Borgir, Sigh, and Cradle of Filth. The masters of skull crushing metal riffs have blown our minds with each successive release for 22 years. After seven years in the making, prepare for the most insane, the most creative, and the most devastatingly gorgeous extreme metal album of the band's illustrious career. For fans of Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, A Hill To Die Upon, and Septic Flesh! The 2019 Limited Run Vinyl is the first time this iconic release has ever been available on Vinyl. Limited to just 100 copies world-wide on random color 180 gram eco-vinyl, this is a release that emphasizes quality from the music to the packaging. "Tilflukt" and "The Kindling" are two tracks left off because of time constraints.

BARREN CROSS - RATTLE YOUR CAGE

Released in 1994, this album got sandwiched between trendy grunge rock and alternative hipsters that thought "metal" was a dirty word. Metal bands were having the life sucked out of them. "Hairband" was a derogatory term, and stars of the LA Strip scene were treated like an embarrassing drunk uncle. Despite the anti-metal sentiments, Barren Cross defied all odds and put out an epic classic metal/hard rock album on Rugged Records. That label folded and the album went out of print almost as soon as it was released. While their 80s albums were more polished power metal meets LA glam, Rattle Your Cage has a production that is somewhat raw and stripped down. It's special to hear the band ripping full-throttle bluesy hard rock with an ever so slight 1970s throw back sound reminiscent of Die Happy and Badlands. Though a couple tracks here sound like they could have easily fit on the State of Control era format, expect classic American-styled hard rock featuring one AOR anthem after another. Fully remastered by Bombworks Sound for CD and Vinyl these deluxe reissue are vastly improved with all new artwork by Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal. The CD comes with a band foil-stamped trading card and the 180 Gram Vinyl record comes with a 12x12 full color lyrics insert. For fans of Great White, Cinderella, Giant, and Black Stone Cherry, Kiss, and especially Guns N' Roses!

BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART - ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE & WAR

Green vinyl. Originally released in 2004 on the Facedown imprint label, Blood & Ink. Brutal Planet Records rescued this incredibly rare and impossible-to-find album from certain obscurity! Hailing from Canada, BBaBH's later albums would be much AOR and melodic in nature. With their debut All Is Fair....the band flirts with the 80's rock/metal vibe, but ultimately smashes us in the face with a full-on death/metalcore assault that would have Chuck Norris wetting his panties. Expect everything you love about Atreyu, Bleeding Through, and yes...the almighty Motley Crue. The guitars are heavy and moshable, especially in the beginning tracks "Another Day/Another War" and "That Knife Ain't For Butter." There is actually some very melodic singing that evens everything out, like in "Some Kind Of Wonderful" and "Courting Mary." Pick this up for one of the most interesting Christian metal albums ever released! First time ever on vinyl, this is an extreme metal classic - fully remastered for the elite Slime Green color vinyl (1st time!) and includes a 12x12 full color lyrics sheet.

BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART - PEDAL TO THE METAL

Purple vinyl. Blessed By A Broken Heart is a Canadian modern hair/glam metal band and Pedal To the Metal is their second album, originally released in 2008 on Century Media Records. Without a doubt, the album is a magnet for any fan of 80's hard rock/glam metal; yet the band's musical approach extends beyond the hair/glam genre. One of the most prominent aspects of Pedal to the Metal is the guitar work. BBABH does an amazing job of distinguishing themselves from the rest of the metal genre by adding a nostalgic twist of the 80s in each saucy riff. "Carry On" contains quite a few brutal riffs. Another must-hear track with impressive guitar (coincidentally also the song that most captures the hair metal influence they try to intertwine into each song) is "Show Me What You Got." With Foxx jamming and programming away on the synth and Shred Sean, well, shredding, this is one of the pinnacles off the album. Caution: this song may feather hair. Anybody who appreciates elite harmonies and ripping technical guitar will appreciate this! Yes, the band has infectious riffs, 80's hair metal hooks, and even tracks with extreme metal breakdowns - and it's all exhilarating from beginning to end! For fans of Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Motley Crue, Van Halen, and 80's pop music! Buy this and you will thank us! The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster is the first time this classic has ever been on vinyl - now available on Purple color vinyl and includes a 12x12 full color lyrics sheet.

BRIDE - HERE IS YOUR GOD

Orange vinyl. Bride has been releasing music for more than 30 years, and they are still going strong! "Here Is Your God" is the band's 16th studio album. It picks up where "Snake Eyes" left off and takes it to a whole new level. This album has major cojones! Here Is Your God, seamlessly blends elements from the first six Bride albums, creating nothing short of an epic hard rock and metal masterpiece. It's heavy as a freight train, and it's as melodic as Kinetic Faith & Snakes in the Playground. Some bands play around with sound, trying to appeal to modern fans, but Bride went back to their roots with Here Is Your God. This just might be the band's most accomplished moment and best release - ever. It's that good. Trust us! Expect a heavier, grittier sound more in line with mid-period Motley Crue (Girls, Girls, Girls & Dr. Feelgood eras). The Thompson brothers are skilled professionals in both style and execution, and this is one more Bride album that shows exactly why this band is the single most prolific Christian hard rock band ever - period. No band does heavy riffs, screaming guitar solos, and belting vocals better than Bride. The album captures all the brilliance of classic Bride, while reminding fans this band is definitely getting better with age. While it may be true that Here Is Your God could be the last push for these ground-breaking/genre-defining rockers, there is no denying the age-defying quality and intensity contained within these 12 songs. Dale sounds better than ever - his vocals right high up in the mix - and the venerable guitars of Troy cut through with conviction like it was 1990/1991 all over again. Brazilian, Aposan delivers a nice mix of speed and traditional classic hard rock/metal drumming, and Nenel's bass rumble drives Bride's rhythm as steady and prolific as it comes.

BRIDE - KINETIC FAITH (GREEN)

The Colored Vinyl (Green with Black Marble Swirl) will contain a sturdy two-sided printed insert with band photo and lyrics. It is also the first time this album has ever been on Vinyl. Kinetic Faith was Bride's fourth album released in 1991, making this the 30th anniversary edition of this iconic album. It has been completely remastered, and is now available on CD and marks the first time this elite album has been available on vinyl. Looking back at this iconic album, it was not the thrash album that many thought would come on the heels of Silence Is Madness, but more of a straightforward hard rock and commercial metal album in the vein of Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, and M÷tley CrŘe. This was not a bad thing at all. For many it is the album that many call their defining moment. It opened Bride up to a wider audience, and it probably is why so many loved this album who were not big fans of their first three albums. It is also the reason why they won a DOVE AWARD for "Everybody Knows My Name."Dale Thompson's controlled vocals and "even" approach with raspy and blues flavored parts became his signature sound. Troy Thompson incorporated bluesy licks, and the songs are anchored by the tight rhythm section of bassist Rick Foley and drummer Jerry McBroom. Rob Johnson also plays some lead and rhythm guitar parts as a guest musician.

BRIDE - SNAKES IN THE PLAYGROUND (RED)

Completely remastered for both CD and Vinyl. The Colored Vinyl (Red with Black Marble Swirl) contains a sturdy 2 sided printed insert with band photo and lyrics. It is also the first time this album has been on Vinyl. If there ever was a defining moment in a band's history, for Bride, it would be this one. Snakes in the Playground was Bride's fifth and most successful album. Rarely did albums grace the Christian music scene that were welcomed with as much fanfare as this one. For Christian rock fans worldwide, this album was our Abbey Road, our Hotel California, our Back in Black and our Appetite for Destruction. It was also our defining moment as much as it was the band's. Our rock was finally as great as theirs. Maybe it was Bride's relentless touring and international attention. Maybe it was their four previous albums that brought them to this moment. Whatever the reason, we were blown away the second we heard "Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart today," followed immediately by a bell tolling and a siren. It took exactly 49 seconds to realize this was going to be something very special; and special it was. Bride won the 1993 DOVE AWARDT for HARD MUSIC SONG OF THE YEAR for "Rattlesnake," as well as the 1994 DOVE AWARDT for HARD MUSIC SONG OF THE YEAR for "Psychedelic Super Jesus." Snakes in the Playground also solidified its lasting impact landing at #45 in Heaven's Metal magazine's list of the Top 100 Christian Rock Albums of all time. If you have never owned this album and this is the first time you are seeing/hearing it, you are in for one of the defining moments of your life. I promise you, it's that good. For those of us that have owned it on cassette or CD it's going to be a special moment listening to this on vinyl for the very first time. It's hard to believe that this will be the first opportunity to spin this. A moment for the ages.

BROWN, JIMMY P. II - ERASERHEAD (COLOR VINYL)

For years Deliverance icon and creative mastermind has tried to balance speaking to fans of the thrash metal years, and fans of the Deliverance "creative years". With Jimmy P. Brown II's Eraserhead Jimmy is making a name change for the Deliverance sound that is full on heavy, metal, progressive, dark, and ultra creative (but not thrash or speed metal!). Featuring Manny Morales on bass, and Jon Knox (Adam Again, White Heart, Great White) on drums - this is the same trio responsible for the epic Deliverance releases titled Learn and River Disturbance which both feature Jimmy Brown as a master axeman on rhythm and lead guitars. As accomplished as Jimmy P. Brown II has been with mind-rattling epic metal releases like Stay of Execution, Learn, & River.... With Eraserhead the bar has been set infinitely higher. Eraserhead is more....more melodic, more progressive, more unified, more diverse, and more creative. Of the many musical masterpieces Jimmy P. Brown has gifted this world, Eraserhead is without a doubt his Magnum Opus, his crowning achievement. And, it's not even close. This is Deliverance - the "creative years" team that has set their sights on creating the finest metal album of 2018, and decades to come. It's almost impossible to choose a favorite song.....the infectious "Digital Postage Stamp" will have you singing in seconds, while "Swell Lot..." flirts with creative heights that are held for the most elite in music and metal. But then the last song on the CD, the 7 minute "The Watchers" (featuring a guest appearance from Eric Clayton of Savior Machine) embarks with a majesty, nobility, and a stateliness that is both jaw-dropping, and drool-inducing! If you are a musical snob who insists your albums are bathed in pure, unadulterated greatness, then stop what you are doing and get this album on CD (12 page insert, jewel case) and limited edition Aqua Colored Vinyl. The album features the best musicians, the best songs, and the best music they have ever done. It's the ultimate ear candy for fans of Jimmy P. Brown II and the creative years Deliverance crew.

DEGARMO & KEY - BAND - THIS AIN'T HOLLYWOOD

Mint green vinyl. DeGarmo and Key were forerunners and pioneers of early Jesus Music. Their music transcended generations and musical boundaries. They released 15 albums spanning 3 decades. Their first three albums This Time Thru (1978) Straight On (1979) and This Ain't Hollywood (1980) have been completely remastered on colored vinyl for the first time ever along with remastered CDs with 8 page booklets, lyrics and photos with LTD Trading Cards. The band's third album This Ain't Hollywood proved to establish a trilogy of classic albums that would stand the test of time. Featuring the opening "Stella, This Ain't Hollywood," a plea to evaluate one's values against eternal destiny, DeGarmo and Key prove to be passionate songwriters. The album also yielded two radio hits: "You Gave Me All," an infectious slow rocker that charted at #19 and the duet with Amy Grant on "Nobody Loves Me," which charted at #6 and led to DeGarmo and Key being a part of Amy Grant's touring band. The album also features the hooky "Love Is All You Need," co-written with rocker Mylon LeFevre, who is also featured on backing vocals. Mylon would later record this song with his band, Look Up, when he was signed to CBS Records in 1987. This album also became the first Christian rock album to be nominated for a Grammy award. Its timeless songs still pack a powerful punch of conviction wedded to a pulsating beat of rock and roll heaven.

DELIVERANCE - GREETING OF DEATH

Metallica had No Life Til Leather...an iconic demo that catapulted the band into unforeseen glory and status. Deliverance's Greeting of Death demo (1986) did the same thing for the most heralded Christian thrash act of all-time. Frontman, Jimmy Brown asked his girlfriend to draw up a cover of a Grim Reaper waving "Hi!" Inspired by a Chic Tract he had seen and she drew it, and used rub on letters from a stationary store. Jimmy made all the dubs from a tape deck that belonged to his sister. Three tape decks later, he had ordered 5,000 copies within a year's time. The demo gained a life of its own! People everywhere knew it! People would sing Speckled Bird (exclusive to this demo) when the band would go to shows and people at the shows were singing along with the songs from the demo! Greeting of Death was a very special moment in time, captured on cellophane magnetic tape and it propelled Deliverance to being a regular at the Sunset Strip and the newly emerging Christian Festival networks. With their roots deeply rooted in the Greeting of Death demo, Deliverance would release two of the most influential and critically acclaimed Christian thrash releases of all time in the 1989 Self-Titled and the 1990 release Weapons of Our Warfare. This 1986 demo, Greeting of Death is what propelled them to impact the thrash scene more than any other single Christian thrash band, ever. All three versions of this iconic demo were intentional in making it look, feel, and sound like the original release featuring the iconic cover drawn by Jimmy's girlfriend, and printed black and white on uncoated (flat/not glossy) paper just like the original demo. The cassette is a single J-Card insert featuring the original six tracks. The CD is a 12 page insert with lyrics and pages of iconic band photos with personal reflections form Jimmy Brown. The 12" Vinyl features the personal reflections, lyrics and rare bands photos on black vinyl (500 units pressed). Both CD and Vinyl feature the original six songs, plus the two legendary tracks off of the California Metal Compilation, Attack and A Space Called You. This demo came out years ahead of all other Christian thrash releases and opened the door for success for other bands like Vengeance, Believer, and Seventh Angel. The impact of Greeting of Death cannot be overstated, and this reissue gives fans a chance to taste of what the original release was like, but even better with the packaging, various formats, and the 2019 digital remaster from an all new source that is a substantial improvement from all other versions of this release. This is the ultimate Deliverance reissue that celebrates the impact of a band that has a musical legacy second to none. CD + LP + Cassette (limited to 100 copies). And yes, the album title is Greeting of Death, but the song on the demo is Greetings of Death. That's the way Jimmy's girlfriend heard it when he was telling her what he wanted, and that's the way she made it! Get them while you can - these are treasures! .

DELIVERANCE - HEAR WHAT I SAY

Make no mistake, Hear What I Say is 100% METAL! In fact, the 2013 Deliverance release is a nice hybrid of the styles that have characterized the band's two decades of existence. Jimmy is accompanied by axeman extraordinaire Michael Phillips, his faithful bassist Manny Morales and none other than Jayson Sherlock of Mortification and Horde fame pounding out the drum rhythms. It is a great line-up and the high expectations that come with being an iconic metal band have been met, and then some! "The Annals of Subterfuge" and "Angst" will satisfy the fans of their early thrash era being a full-on heavy metal assault, but other tracks that could have easily been recorded on other "big D" albums. Leave it to Jimmy Brown to stay fresh and experimental without sacrificing the heaviness and all-out metal foundation of the mighty Deliverance sound. You get a Maiden cover "Where Eagles Dare" (which is very well done by the way) and a German version of "Detox," and for the 2019 Retroactive Records re-release you get an exclusive bonus track, "Spieluhr" which is a Rammstein cover. The re-release is packaged in a 4 panel jewel case, and is the same mastering as the original release, except for the bonus track. Deliverance was the first Christian extreme metal band to really enjoy success back in the day and the longevity they've enjoyed is a testament to both the quality and integrity of the music and the musicians who have participated in the band over all these years. Fortunately, we haven't heard the last of Jimmy P. Brown.

DELIVERANCE - RIVER DISTURBANCE

Starting out originally as a speed metal act with influences of Metallica and Slayer shining brightly, the band's fourth album, Stay of Execution, signaled both change and growth in this epic metal band! This new sound was most noticeably embodied by vocalist Jimmy P. Brown II altering his vocal style singing much more like David Bowie and Saviour Machine's Eric Clayton. The vocals fit the newer direction musically and with 1994's River Disturbance, unleashed a new level of brilliance for Deliverance fans as they progressed into 1994 and beyond! A timeless album filled with haunting melodies and powerful metal music, River Disturbance ascended to new artistic heights.

DELIVERANCE - STAY OF EXECUTION

Some monumental progressive thrash that delivers a multitude of metallic fury in exquisite fashion. Stay of Execution launched the band one step towards the era that would be known as the creative years, while maintaining the epic metal sound that fans expected. The hooks, the riffs, the lyrics all took fans by surprise. We had never heard such artistic thrashing before, and boy, did Stay of Execution hit the spot! Almost 30 years later, it sounds better than ever, remastered for Vinyl for the very first time! Formed in 1985 in Southern California, Deliverance was one of the earliest speed metal bands on the scene to be overtly singing about Christian ideology. Their self-titled album and the follow-up Weapons of our Warfare are considered classics of the speed metal genre. Their third album titled What A Joke featured several short joke songs, several very cool cover songs, and lots of epic thrashing.. Stay of Execution was the fourth album from Deliverance and featured a new line-up. Replacing guitarist George Ochoa is shredder Mike Phillips. Bassist Mike Grato (ex-Recon) is on board for part of the writing and recording but is replaced by original bassist Brian Khairullah. Stay... marks a return to form, even if it strays from the strict speed metal definition. This album features more focused song-writing and avoids the silliness of What A Joke. It's also slightly more technical and melodic than any of their past albums. The music is driven by some big, killer riffs given life by a beefy Mesa Boogie guitar tone. The album introduced us to Jimmy Brown's new "David Bowie" vocal style. "Ramming Speed" is a killer, SLOW and plodding song! (Ironic title, huh?) "Entombed" is a full on speed metal onslaught. "Stay of Execution" is still one of the best Deliverance songs ever - featuring a huge riff and even bigger hook. The remix of "Weapons" was an attempt by the original record label to keep the MTV music video alive. Stay of Execution remains a favorite of both critics and fans. Few albums deserve the Retroactive Records Gold Disc Edition treatment more than this one. Stay... remains a critical part of Christian heavy metal royalty, taking heavy music to places no one ever thought possible.

DELIVERANCE - WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE (PIC)

Short but sweet: I can't believe I never got this album! I mean, I've had "Stay of Execution" for about 20 years (yup, that long) and I love the re-mix of the song "Weapons of our Warfare" but this whole album is just a thrash metal main stay! It jumps at you like a lion! I have the re-mastered version but the mix and production are great -the guitars are heavy, the bass is very present and the drumming: Chris Hyde is underrated!

GUARDIAN - FIRE AND LOVE (LEGENDS REMASTERED)

Limited edition of 500 units pressed! Fire & Love should come packaged with a rubber mat to prevent your jaw from shattering when it drops to the floor. Response to the album release (1990) was overwhelming, and the video for the song "Power of Love" was included in the MTV's Headbangers Ball rotation. The shredding melodic metal of their previous album is replaced by red-hot, fired-up commercial hard rock that is belted out with emotive power to spare by the awesome Jamie Rowe. Adding to the album's appeal is the legendary production talents of John & Dino Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon)! If you love big guitars (Palacios rips!), big hooks (Motley Crue would be jealous), big choruses (Bon Jovi would approve), big vocals (can you say wall of sound?), and big production (it's the Elefantes...what else do you need to know?), then you'll love this album, a true Christian hard rock classic.

GUARDIAN - MIRACLE MILE (W/7")

Teaming up with Dino and John Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon/Pakaderm Records) for 1991's Fire and Love album was a game-changing move for Guardian. The album was an overwhelming hit with fans, in regular rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, and the band turned into the consummate road warriors with extensive U.S touring throughout 1991 and a European tour with Stryper in 1992. With all the touring, the band made the decision to move, families and all, from Los Angeles to Nashville in order to take things to the next level. Not content to make their third album Fire & Love Part 2, Guardian reflected on two years of touring, all their success, and began to dream of what album number three might be like. Bach was influenced by a movie that featured a turn-of-the-century carnival that had terrifying and mystical effects on the towns it visited. Bach was also fascinated with the religious tent revivals from the same period that had such a profound effect on the U.S. landscape. He began envisioning an album that combined the two elements, with snake oils, side shows, carnivals, and deep spirituality. The rest of the band bought in to this concept, and Miracle Mile was born. The album demonstrates a band locked in as a cohesive unit, being fun, imaginative, and creative in ways that pushed them far beyond anything they had ever done. Miracle Mile built off bands like Tesla, Extreme, and Giant but was distinctly Guardian. Miracle Mile is the band's undisputed Sgt. Pepper, their Appetite for Destruction, their Back in Black. This is the band's defining moment, at the top of their game

1991's Age of Darkness is the second (and final) album from Christian metallers Haven. Before you conjure up images of Stryper, you'd do well to give this one a chance. Where a band like Barren Cross drew its influences from Dio and Iron Maiden, Haven's sound owes more to a certain Seattle sound (no, not that one).

HAVEN - III (180 GR)

Originally released by the band independently in 1995, four years after the sophomore release, Age of Darkness. The album was pieced together by golden throat vocalist, Kevin Ayers as various members of the band were available over the four year period. Also, gone are the million dollar studios and producers that recorded the first two Haven classics. Haven III was recorded on Kevin's home recording studio in his garage in the 90s! In the words of the Supreme Metal Historian, Scott Waters (Ultimatum), Despite the four years between releases, the music has not changed dramatically. As with past albums, however, the lyrics are awesome, although they are a bit more praise oriented rather than some of the more social lyrics of the past. With many tracks clocking in at 6-7 minutes, you know you are in for a tremendous melodic, progressive power metal adventure! This Retroactive Records reissue has been carefully mastered for vinyl by veteran, Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound), pressed on collector-quality heavy-weight vinyl, and comes with a 12x12 insert with lyrics. For fans of Sacred Warrior, Iron Maiden, Recon, Queensryche!

JAG PANZER - THE AGE OF MASTERY

What is perhaps most important about The Age of Mastery is that it shows a band about to embark on a conceptual phase of their career which elevates them from mere power/heavy metal to something more substantial and interesting. The Age Of Mastery is produced by Jim Morris (Iced Earth, Death, Savatage), and feature original singer Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin, and guitarist Chris Broderick, who joined Megadeth in 2008. The album is often listed as one of the best classic heavy metal albums of the '90s, and includes ultimate classics of the band such as "Iron Eagle" or "Chain Of Command." This classic has literally never sounded or looked better. This is the ultimate collector's dream for an all-time classic!

KILLED BY CAIN - KILLED BY CAIN (180 GR)

This Louisville, KY band started out as the infamous 80's classic metal band, Whiteray that released 4 highly sought after demos! By 1993 they had signed with R.E.X. Records and changed their name to KILLED BY CAIN. Featuring a much more aggressive metal sound with distinctive Metallica meets G'n R-styled vocals and killer heavy metal more in line with the thrashing grooves of 90's Megadeth. KILLED BY CAIN is full on metallic anger and rage at it's finest. The music is hard, and the message is socially relevant even in 2017! In all seriousness, this is the album Metallica should have made after the Black album! These songs sound like they could have been the follow up to Guns 'N Roses Use Your Illusions! For fans of Metallica, Bride, Tourniquet (Vanishing Lessons era), Guns 'N Roses, Motorhead! The 2017 Retroactive Records reissue of this album comes fully remastered by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) on Vinyl (limited to 150 copies of 180 Gram).

MODEST ATTRACTION - DIVINE LUXURY

Featuring Christian Liljegren (pre-Narnia) and Mick Nordstrom (ex-Leviticus) Modest Attraction rose from the ashes of the elite Swedish melodic band, Borderline whose demos ruled the Christian metal underground in the late 80's. After a couple of classic demos, the band recorded and released their second album themselves and was available exclusively as an import in the states. Divine Luxury (1996) built on the enormous success of the debut and blew away both critics and long-time fans. Memorable, exquisite, super-heavy, and firmly planted in the 70's with a modern day production, Divine Luxury show cased the band at the top-of-world of heavy metal. To this very day, Retroactive Records owner, Matthew Hunt claims this album as one of his all-time favorites! It's THAT amazing! Digitally remastered by none other than Narnia axeman, C.J. Grimmark and the layout handled by none other than NoLifeTilMetal's Scott Waters - the album has never looked or sounded so elite and professional. Every CD comes with a Modest Attraction foil-stamped trading card! Even though Nirvana and Soundgarden were ruling the radio charts in 1 and 2, Modest Attraction was leading the retro movement early on, and combined the extravagant showmanship of Queen with the deep 70's vibes of classic Deep Purple, The Sweet, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Led Zeppelin. Modest Attraction embraced the retro-vibe in every way - featuring members with full-blown long-hair, platform shoes, and colorful stage clothes including flared trousers - and it connected with fans in a serious way! Classic heavy metal gets no better than this! Two important words - MUST-BUY!

MODEST ATTRACTION - GET READY

Featuring Christian Liljegren (pre-Narnia) and Mick Nordstrom (ex-Leviticus) Modest Attraction rose from the ashes of the elite Swedish melodic band, Borderline whose demos ruled the Christian metal underground in the late 80's. In 1991 and 1992, Modest Attraction recorded two ground-breaking demos (Modest Attraction & Blizzful Sample) that would later be put together on a handful of CD-Rs and released as one 10 song album called Get Ready. Never before professionally released, 2021 is the 30th Anniversary of the classic album that started it all for the prolific and ultra-talented musicians in Modest Attraction and features the album in all it's glory and then some! Digitally remastered by none other than Narnia axeman, C.J.

PARADOX - POWER & GLORY

Ruler had just been released at a time when the band was garnering interest from record labels for the first time. R.E.X., Frontline, Intense, Star Song and Word Records contracts were all sitting on the kitchen table waiting to be reviewed. The production of new music was under way. "Meet The King" and "Just Want To Love You" were real barn burners with a furious message of fidelity to God and in our relationships to one another. The message of Power and Glory hit the band hard and fast. It was winter 1987, and Christmas was just around the corner. On the morning of December 8th, we were struck with a message from which would forever test and change the destiny of what would become a paradox of its own. John Vidaurri had tragically died in an accident. At We just didn't expect it, but we knew that John had a vision to bring us together and he would have wanted us to finish it. Power and Glory took on a new meaning for the band in 1988 when the decision was given to stay together and to move forward with the mark of a higher calling, to press on. The band started to receive condolence letters from the record companies basically stating concern and reneging on the contract offers previously sent. In short, they were worried how the loss was going to affect the writing ability of the band, so they pulled back the offers they had sent. "When in our weakness we were made strong through Him, that who ever believeth in me even though he should die will have eternal life." The hope of all glory is to one day be able to see each other once again! A "Sweet Reunion!" "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." To see the power and the glory of God, we offer the commitment and the passion and now the patience it took to finally dedicate this release to John Vidaurri. John had a vision that allowed Paradox to believe in this ministry, that through our the music, the band could worship God with power and glory and let the world know of God's goodness! Here you go with this album officially released on CD and Vinyl for the very first time in history! The album features the original five tracks, but 4 exclusive bonus tracks, all digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and layouts by Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal. Vinyl comes with a black polylined sleeve, hype sticker, 180 gram vinyl, write-ups from vocalist Manny Castillo and Doug Van Pelt. The CD comes with a 12 page booklet packed full of awesomeness! Over 30 years later, this classic album finally gets the deluxe treatment it deserves, and collector's crave. Limited edition pressing - be sure to get your copies while you can! For fans of Sacred Warrior, Recon, and Stryper!

PARADOX - RULER

Music critics might argue as to what city should be labeled "the heavy metal capitol of the world." Hollywood, London, New York, San Francisco, Tampa. The debate goes on. If you ask touring metal bands, though, there is a consensus that this title should belong to none other than San Antonio, Texas. Citizens of this Central Texas city love their heavy metal and especially their fist-pumping, screaming and yelling loud hard rock concerts. This is the city where Paradox was born. In 1987, they burst upon the scene with this 8-song album-on-cassette called Ruler. It introduced the metal world to the shredding, soloing and controlled feedback of lead guitarist Fernando Hernandez. He was backed by rhythm guitarist and heart of the band, John Vidaurri, who was also the busiest member. He and his wife, Liz, would book the gigs, procure the fashion, the makeup and all that went with making a band look metal. Liz was the official band photographer, and she also would help with their hair and choreograph their onstage moves. Brothers Galicia provided the backbone of the rhythm section. Bassist Phil Galicia III added great background vocals, played some keyboards and even handled the artwork for the band. His little brother, Efrain, played drums like a madman, swirled his hair around like Tommy Lee, and was still in high school during this exciting time for the band. Manuel Castillo was the band's frontman, which spilled over to leading the band spiritually, hosting rehearsals in his garage, preaching from the stage and, in an unusual move for a power metal band, he would whip out the flute for a prog-metal number during their concerts. He mixes the fervor of Keith Green with the showmanship of Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. What other metal singer can you say that about? Sporting long hair, mascara and spandex like the rest of the late 0s metal scene, Paradox mixed the power metal of Iron Maiden, Manowar or Dio with the melodic metal sensibilities of a Stryper, Queensryche or even Kiss. The riffs pulsate with a musical muscle workout while the giant hooks grab the listener by the throat and almost force them to sing along. One thing that cannot be lost on this band is the lyrics. No matter what side of the God or church fence you find yourself on, Paradox has powerful, bold lyrics that match the passion of a revivalist preacher and the theology of a pastor. Tunes like "We Are the Temple" and "Ruler" were worship songs at full volume. "Last Race," "Long Live the King" and "Stand Up for Jesus" were pastoral anthems for believing metalheads. The latter even name dropped Stryper and Bloodgood. How cool is that? "Can't You See" and "You Must be Saved" were pleas to the unconverted to come to Jesus. It doesn't get more blunt and in-your-face than that. It's easy (and true) to say that it's a shame Paradox didn't get the international record deal shared by their peers (like Sacred Warrior, Whitecross and Barren Cross enjoyed), but there were thousands of metalheads who did buy the Ruler and Power & Glory albums on cassette. It is those fans who will most appreciate this re-release and re-kindling of the fire that is Paradox (can you say "new material coming soon?"), but those just now discovering the band will no doubt rejoice, too

POUNDHOUND - MASSIVE GROOVE

What is "psychofunkadelic grungelism?" You'll have to buy this album to find out, and yes, you'll love it! Doug Pinnick, the 12-string bass thunder of the iconic power trio King's X, has laid down an ear-pleasing, foot-stomping, hand-clapping set of tracks on an "electric poundation" of massive bass vibes that'll set your whole house-a-quaking. Pinnick's trademark silk-and-gravel vocals impart a variety of moods to the album, lending a funky gospel voice to songs like "Jangle" and "Shake," a bluesy world-weariness to "Soul" and "Friends," a Hendrix-style otherworldliness to "Red." Pinnick's understated guitar work is masterful (he plays all guitars as well as bass). The driving, crashing drum work of Chad Lyons, Jerry Gaskill, and Shannon Larkin (ex Wrathchild America and Ugly Kid Joe drummer) expand the vibes on this album to a truly massive, glorious wall of sound. Pinnick's innovative, enormously influential career ought by now to have earned him a prime seat in the first rank of African American rockers, right beside Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone. This music is great enough to give him the recognition he deserves. It's up to us fans to get the secret out. This 1998 masterpiece has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and includes the Japan-only bonus track, "Anger," and comes with a 12x12 insert featuring rare band photos and lyrics. Limited to just 200 Black and 200 Random Color - get this treasure while you can!

POWELL, STEVE - REVELATION (THE PARTY'S OVER)

This album will appeal to fans of the psychedelic monstrosity called RAINBOW PROMISE, as Steve Powell is the lead sing of that giant slab of FUZZ guitar. As with solo albums from bands like The Exkursions and Harvest Flight, the solo album is full of rock, but not quite as radical. Yes, there are a handful of softer moments, but the album still features plenty of electric basement vibes - fully in tact! "Freedom" grinds out in a heavy, grungy Larry Norman way, while "Excites Me" lays it down with riffs that can only be described as raw and bluesy - in all the right ways! "I Wanna Live" sure sounds like one of those psychy rural ballads off of Rainbow Promise. Powell goes on to nail several more rural rock tracks, all while playing piano, drums, while providing quality work on rhythm guitar and lead guitar. The man has no limits! All ten tracks are digitally remastered. The CD comes with a four panel insert, while the Vinyl comes in at 140 grams, a quality heavy weight listening experience! For fans of Love Song, Phil Keaggy, early Petra, Iron Butterfly, Larry Norman, The Talbot Brothers, and Rainbow Promise!

RAINBOW PROMISE - RAINBOW PROMISE

One of THE top Christian psychedelic rarities is this custom guitar-based rock monster from the 5-man band, Rainbow Promise with strong west coast vibes that recall the best of Wilson McKinley! The stage is set right from the start with the righteous rocker, "Get Ready," featuring mouth-dropped-to-the-floor sharp dual guitar leads (reminds us of "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones!). "Someone You Need" follows with some of the most insane scorching echoed wah-wah guitar on record anywhere and. "Do You Hear" starts off fast, then adjust to a moodier feel, on par with much of what is on the Christian psych legendary album, "Spirit of Elijah" by Wilson McKinley. The same can be said for both "Prophecy" and "Rebirth," with the latter treating listeners to inspired echoed guitar leads. Track eight is an electrified cover of one of the most iconic Jesus Music tracks of the 70's - "Little Country Church," made popular by Love Song. It's hard to top all this greatness! The band even breaks open a fresh can of pure charm with the delightful country rocker, "Romans 8-28" and the laid back campy "The Joy of the Lord." The album features dynamic drumming and not a single keyboard note to be found anywhere! The homemade cover art is psychedelic perfection, with a depiction of the glorified Son of Man in the midst of seven candlesticks as presented in Revelation 1:12-18. Guitarist and primary songwriter, Steve Powell (R.I.P. 2021) also has a 1974 solo album, Revelation (The Party's Over) also available on CD and Vinyl. CDs come with a foil-stamped trading card, packaged in an eight panel insert. Vinyl comes with a 12" insert, and both CD and Vinyl have been remastered to perfection. For fans of Exkursions, Wilson McKinley, The Doors, Rolling Stones, Cream, Iron Butterfly, early Resurrection Band, All Saved freak Band, Agape, and JC Power Outlet! If you like massive, haunting rock music, and a scorching, guitar onslaught, then this is for you!

SACRAMENT - TESTIMONY OF APOCALYPSE

Sacrament was an intense East Coast Christian thrash metal band that pushed the boundaries of early death/thrash metal, not unlike Kreator, Sacrifice or Death. The music is fast and furious leaning towards the more extreme European thrash sound, as opposed to the Bay Area style. Vocalist Mike Torone has a raw, coarse, throaty voice that adds to the overall extreme vibe of the music, though he never really dives into full on death metal growls. Despite the speed and intensity of the music, Sacrament does not forsake memorable songwriting. "Conquer Death," is a full-throttle thrasher with a manic vocal delivery, one sick high-pitched scream, and a bridge with a killer groove that gives way into a mid-paced lead break. This 2017 Vinyl Edition comes completely remastered by J. Powell at Steinhaus giving this Christian thrash classic it's best sound yet! Limited to 300 copies.

SACRED WARRIOR - OBSESSIONS

Obsessions was meant to be released on vinyl. It's big, huge guitars and soaring vocals were always meant to be heard on vinyl. Until now, it was one of the Music God's greatest injustice. Sacred Warrior's fourth release Obsessions (1991) was the culmination of four great years of work. To quote Jonathan "Doc" Swank from the Heaven's Metal Top 100 Christian Metal Albums Of All-Time list - where Obsessions ranked #7 "Christendom's best power metal band ever hit their high-water mark with this collection of songs which perfectly blended Queensr che, Iron Maiden and their unique and inspiring take on the scene." One of the greatest aspects of this album remains just how real and visceral are the music and the words conveyed through this metal. The over-arching thread was the faithfulness of God - that no matter how bad life gets with addictions ("Obsessions"), no matter what death steals from us in this world ("Sweet Memories"), no matter how far we stray in our faith ("No Turning Back"), no matter how much the world's ways seem wise to us ("Kamikaze"), no matter how isolated we feel from God because of our sins ("Remember Me") - that God is faithful, and God is there for us ("Fire From Heaven"). And while evil roams this earth constantly looking for prey ("Mad Man") the hope and faith we have in Christ sets us free ("Temples On Fire"). What a dynamic album that breaks it all down in such a simple and human way. This progressive metal soundtrack to these eternal observations is both exceptionally executed and timelessly relevant. Undisputedly, one of the finest moments in Christian metal history, Obsessions has been gloriously remastered and while many fans might not believe much else could be added to this album to make it better from an audio standpoint, Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound has managed to add a sonic crispness and punch that makes the walls reverberate. Most importantly, the "bright" quality of the music is liberated on vinyl. These metallic anthems have retained their power and relevance for nearly 30 years - a testament to the legacy of Sacred Warrior - and now they sound wonderfully fresh and revitalized in 2019! The 2019 Retroactive Records 180 Gram Vinyl, Random Color is part of the Limited Run Vinyl series. This is THE definitive Vinyl reissue of one of Christian metal's most definitive albums. For fans of Recon, Queensryche, and Crimson Glory! Limited Edition to a one-time pressing of just 200 copies world-wide!

SAINT - IN THE BATTLE

In The Battle would find Saint returning to its classic metal roots of the 80s in addition to welcoming Josh Kramer back into the fold. Don't expect grungy modern metal from Saint. Expect a lesson in EXACTLY what old-school metal should sound like. When you think of metal, think of Saint. Offering the total package, In the Battle only solidifies Saint as a tremendous force in crunchy, traditional, heavy metal. Often compared to Judas Priest, the muscular guitar riffs and elite vocals also bring to mind Barren Cross, Dio, Bloodgood and Iron Maiden. *AngelicWarlord Reviews: "What else can you say? In The Battle proves an all around solid comeback effort in combining a strong production job with the band's top notch musicianship and songwriting. While "Ryders" is by far the album's strongest track, the hard hitting title track, the catchy "The Choice" and the seven minute long masterpiece "Sacrifice" are equally commendable."White vinyl.

SAINT - THE CALF

HEAVEN'S METAL REVIEW by Keven Crothers Arriving from the pacific via a runaway locomotive the latest release from metal merchants Saint has arrived! Entitled The Calf, be prepared for a fantastic excursion into the traditional metal landscape that Saint has really carved out as their own. Solid songs, top notch musicianship and world class production, The Calf supplies all of these in abundance. Let me be clear, if you are expecting Times End Part Two, forget it. This incarnation of Saint features founder Richard Lynch (bass), Jerry Johnson and Matt Smith (guitars) with drummer Jared Knowland and new vocalist Dave Nelson. Nelson will probably get the most scrutiny from fans of long time vocal workhorse Josh Kramer. Make no mistake, Dave Nelson's grit and gruffness provide a vocal performance which stands right up there with the best of Kramer's work. Musically it's Saint, albeit with some new added elements, guitar melodies that add depth and ambience. The double guitar attack pays off in spades here, adding some twists and turns to the already classic sound. As I mentioned, this isn't Times End Part Two, so get over it. The Calf is somewhere between Hell Blade and Desperate Night, heavy with perhaps more melody at times. Don't say "more commercial" because these days what does even mean? Album opener "The Calf" gets it going full speed ahead with nods to "Psalm 23" and "Rise" with tempo and intensity. "Fragile" supplies heaviness with a slower nod but a driving rhythm. The guitar interplay throughout this album is amongst the most top tier to grace a Saint release. Waiting five years between releases has been a huge payoff in this regard. "The Fall" drives poundingly with its headbanging tempo and surprising guitar melodies. However, album closer "God is God" is a tour de force. Heavy, pounding with spectacular guitar playing that pushes this song to the stratosphere. Lyrically discussing Jesus with depth and insight, amidst the strong arrangements and vocal performance, one of the best Saint songs ever. Saint has always had some tracks that were melodic without sacrificing their heaviness, "Through You" from Times End or "The War is Over" from Too Late For Living come immediately to mind. In that regard, both "Stormy Night" and "Another Day" fit that bill, both are slightly "subdued" with a stronger emphasis on melody. "Stormy Night" is the stronger of the two songs here with fantastic arranging and some tasty guitar playing. Its message of endurance is a fantastic one, reminding us to press in the Lord. The entire album is supposed to flow one song to another with a continuing theme throughout. Lyrically, there is a depth that strikes me here, not just a "turn or burn" message but a discussion that is frank, open and honest. Part of the development and growth to this listener's ears, this growth is appreciated with a round of applause. The Calf is undoubtedly one of the FINEST releases that Richard Lynch and company have released. It also deserves to sit amongst the finest releases of 2019. Traditional heavy metal with thinking man's edge lyrically; make sure you grab a copy of this soon to be classic of the metal genre. SAINT returns!! CRANK IT UP!!!Colored vinyl.

SEVENTH ANGEL - THE TORMENT

Early 90's Seventh Angel is a U.K. thrash band that wedded speed metal with doom and gloom and the irresistible vocals of elite frontman, Ian Arkley. The iconic debut, The Torment, offers emotion-packed songs with lyrics that promise eternal suffering to the unrepentant ("Tormented Forever") while "Expletive Deleted" encourages Christians to cleanup their language. Originally released on The Edge Music/Kingsway Music in the U.K., the album found its way to the U.S. through Pure Metal Records in 1990. The Torment offers high quality thrash that rivaled anything in the mainstream or Christian markets. Seventh Angel's debut masters the art of big, thick, crunchy guitars with doomy thrash vocals. Considering the quality of the album, and the unique sound of Seventh Angel, it didn't take long for the band to garner a large and loyal fan base. Seventh Angel produced some serious magic on this album, contocting some dark, artistic thrash metal that floored metalheads with the band's ability to wrap a clever melody in a tasty wall of distortion! The album would eventually make the HM Magazine Top 100 Metal Albums of All Time at number 51. And, of course the brilliant cover art was created by famed British fantasy artist, Rodney Matthews. The 2018 Retroactive Records reissues have been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound and with full band approval. CDs are packaged in a jewel case with a 12 page insert featuring amazing band pics, a write up to fans from Ian Arkley, and lyrics. The Vinyl reissue is Orange Vinyl with a full color jacket and insert. After being reissued several times, we can say definitively the album has never looked or sounded better! For fans of Sabbat, Trouble, Vengeance Rising, Believer, Detritus, Deliverance, Metallica, and Exodus. Colored vinyl.

SIXPENCE NONE THE RICHER - THE FATHERLESS & THE WIDOW (ORANGE VINYL)

Five years before Sixpence became a household name on the wings of the stellar international hit that was "Kiss Me," a truly delightful romantic piece of folk/pop brilliance that landed at exactly the right time in the cultural zeitgeist, guitarist and songwriter Matt Slocum and the still teenage vocalist Leigh Nash were learning how to combine their talents and create alternative music that mattered in New Braunfels, Texas. Perhaps inspired by the Christian rock breakthrough in California a decade earlier, when bands like The Choir, Altar Boys and Undercover had stretched the sonic and lyrical boundaries of what was possible and now fellow 90s bands like The Prayer Chain and Poor Old Lu were getting ready for their turn at bat. Slocum's interest in rich textured guitar sounds is evident from the very beginning of their 1993 debut, The Fatherless & The Widow, an image drawn from the concern of the Hebrew prophets for their community's most vulnerable members, widows and orphans, which Jesus later describes as "the least of these," in his parable in Matthew 25. Crisp chords ring out like chimes as a tapestry of textures cascade down a waterfall of sound, an orchestral chorus relying on layers of six stringed instruments and the odd cello, which combine to mark the territory Slocum is discovering for himself, an echo of influences like Derri Daugherty (The Choir), Johnny Marrs (The Smiths), Peter Buck (R.E.M.). No less pronounced and crucial to the 6p sound is the bright, pure and natural voice of Nash, who can effect a childish whisper, or cut through the whirling dervish of sound to create a melodic center that holds and will not be lost in the fury that surrounds her. Whether interpreting an ancient psalm in a lush orchestrated piece, as she does in "Trust (Reprise)" which closes the album, or the album's more challenging emotions of the title track and the opening song, "Field of Flowers," she finds just the right emotional resonance to bring home the pictures that Slocum's music evokes. Surely, no one believes that Nash and Slocum arrived in Nashville to work with Steve Taylor, to create the band's self-title breakthrough for the fledgling Squint label, fully realized like being hatched from an egg, all ready for prime time and a shot at international stardom. On The Fatherless & The Widow, The Beautiful Mess and the Tickets for a Prayer Wheel we see their earliest test flights, learning to soar on their own wings, testing the waters and working out a sound and expression that was both heartfelt and personal, but universally relevant. The fruit of their efforts came early and often, so long-time fans and some who only listened to their radio hits will find these reissues well worth tracking down. If you only catch an artist at their commercial apex, you may miss the beauty and depths of their creative endeavors that lead up to their breakthrough and echo its impact in subtle ways for as long as they are willing to dip pen into ink, strike a chord, and sing one true note.

SLEEPING GIANT - KINGDOM DAYS IN AN EVIL AGE

Sleeping Giant hit gold in 2011 with Kingdom Days in an Evil Age, their third album of top-shelf Christian metalcore. One of the best things about Kingdom Days is the band's fusion of California metalcore with the swagger of Southern groove metal: when they move into the standard hardcore breakdown, they do it with the sluggish, pounding attitude of Pantera. Tommy Green brings his usual macho, sermonizing yells, while the rest of the group hold everything together beneath the album's punishing riffs. This includes a good amount of (usually very Christian) group choruses. The tracks explode one after another showing no mercy, the brilliantly inspirational and energetic 'The Cross Is Suicide' as urgent and dominating as the song ehova Shalom' with its devastating defiant riffs and drum attack. The passion the band as a whole and especially Green give for their belief and message is equaled by their skillful and driven ability to create furiously keen and intensive music.

TABOR, TY - MOONFLOWER LANE

Moonflower Lane is guitarist Ty Tabor's second solo album outside his full-time band, King's X. By making quite a name for himself in hard rock/heavy metal circles over the years, many would expect a full-on metal-guitar-shredding release, but Tabor has always emphasized the importance of melody and songwriting over carefree guitar wanking. Since Tabor handles all the album's singing himself, Moonflower Lane has more of a strong Beatles flavor than your average King's X release (Tabor's voice is similar to John Lennon's at times). Highlights include the hopeful opener "I Do," and the melodic hard rock of "The Island Sea," as well as "I Know Everything" (on which Ty's son plays French horn!), "The Truth," and "Her Palace." Moonflower Lane is full of first-rate Tabor compositions that longtime fans have loved and cherished since it's release in 1998! First time ever on vinyl - and limited to just 400 units - get it while you can in either black or random color! This 1998 masterpiece has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and includes the Japan-only bonus track, "Had to Move," and comes with a 12x12 insert featuring rare band photos and lyrics. Limited to just 200 Black and 200 Random Color - get this treasure while you can!

TOURNIQUET - PATHOGENIC OCULAR DISSONANCE

With 1992's Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance, Tourniquet continued to ascend in both critical acclaim and as artists. The band made it onto Heaven's Metal Magazine's Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All Time for a third time in three albums. Reviewer Chris Beck commented, "Arguably their best album, Tourniquet achieved near perfection from beginning to end with brutally heavy guitars and lyrics." Musically, the album goes for a more aggressive thrash metal direction. The songs are complicated, technical and feature experiments with styles such as jazz, classical, and blues. The album introduced more Slayer-esque shouting vocal patterns by Gary Lenaire as well as a darker atmosphere. The 2020 reissue is reloaded with 2-LP Black & Burgundy Vinyl, Gatefold, 12x12 Insert, 24x24 poster, Black polylined sleeves, and write ups by drummer Ted Kirkpatrick, and Chris Jericho (Fozzy/WWE). And, you also get an all-new 2020 remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound which makes this is THE ultimate collector's dream for deluxe reissues! Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted "Favorite Band of the 1990s" and won "Favorite Album of the 1990s." Tourniquet has sold more than 300,000 albums.

TOURNIQUET - PSYCHO SURGERY (COLOR VINYL)

With Psycho Surgery, the band went in a more modern, experimental, and technical thrash-metal style, incorporating heavy doses of classical music-influenced guitar riffs, complex tempo changes, and virtuosic guitar solos. One reviewer described the album as "Slayer plays Beethoven...." Vocalist Guy Ritter also abandoned his King Diamond-like high-pitched falsetto in favor of a more melodic baritone register and the band went on to reach a level of popularity worthy of their excessive talent. The title track is the closest thing the group has to a signature song. It opens with the dissonant sounds of an orchestra tuning, then introduces strangely growled vocals beneath a barrage of other sounds. Radical and abrupt time changes, dissonant harmonies, and a melodic vocal chorus all account for the song's initially inaccessible but ultimately mesmerizing appeal. The allegorical lyrics about all sorts of medical practices seem to be about the process of developing a new heart and a new mind. Maybe it was best said by Heaven's Metal reviewer, Chris Gotto, "A timeless slab of gut-wrenching metal, combining the best of technical riffs, progression, speed metal and love of classical music in a way that only these Christian thrash kings can." The 2020 reissue is remastered for vinyl by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, features never-before-seen band pics, and the most striking vinyl color of any Tourniquet reissue yet, which makes this is THE ultimate collector's dream for deluxe reissues! Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted "Favorite Band of the 1990s" and won "Favorite Album of the 1990s."

TOURNIQUET - STOP THE BLEEDING (COLOR VINYL)

Few bands have hit the scene with a debut album that was a too-hot-handle bonafide instant classic from the moment it hit the stores. The CMR Top 100 Christian Metal Albums Of All-Time ranks this 1990 debut at #5 of ALL-TIME! And, yes, it is that important and that good! Tourniquet formed in Los Angeles, CA in 1989. The band was founded by Ted Kirkpatrick, Guy Ritter, and Gary Lenaire. Stop the Bleeding is an intoxicating mixture of thrash, progressive, and neo-classical heavy metal that helped the band move light years beyond cliche' and triviality. The song "You Get What You Pray For" was the band's first single and charted quite well. It was a GMA Dove Award nominee for "Metal Recorded Song of the Year" in 1990. The band's groundbreaking and controversial video for "Ark of Suffering," written by drummer Ted Kirkpatrick, a true animal welfare advocate, contains disturbing footage of animals in laboratories and slaughterhouses - received airplay on MTV before the channel ceased airing it after complaints that it was too graphic. Despite MTV's ban, the video won the Christian News Forum Contemporary Christian Music Award for "Rock Video of the Year," and Heaven's Metal magazine readers voted it their "Favorite Video of the Year." Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted "Favorite Band of the 1990s" and won "Favorite Album of the 1990s."

This album is an exciting and brilliant musical and emotional rollercoaster, but fans know that's par for the course from progressive rockers, Trytan. Blood of Kings marks the band's third iconic milestone on a musical journey that began over 30 years ago! Blood of Kings features band leader, Lary Dean on vocals, Eric Gillette (Neal Morse Band), Jim Laverde (Barren Cross), Rey Parra (Sacred Warrior/Deny the Fallen), John Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon) and together they offer a vibrant manifesto of world-class musicianship, vivid lyrical scenarios and ambitious, multi-leveled compositions that have established Trytan as a uniquely compelling creative force like never before! To simply describe Blood of Kings as "epic" is to seriously underestimate the brilliance jam-packed into this album. This is definitive ear candy for even the most distinguished of music fans.

ULTIMATUM - INTO THE PIT

Simply put, the masters of thrash metal nailed it in 2007. Into the Pit qualifies as a juggernaut of North American metal. With Into the Pit, the band unleashed one of thrash metal's most brilliant moments, following in the footsteps of fellow peers Exodus, Vengeance Rising, early Megadeth, Overkill, and Kreator. With its thundering bass, fast drumming and a wealth of Mastodonian rifferry, the boys have clearly learned from their elders, and learned well. Guitarist, Robert Gutierrez fills every track with fiery, blowtorch riffs and scorching solos. Vocalist Scott Waters far exceeds his commendable efforts on previous albums, sounding every bit as brilliant as thrash legend Roger Martinez (Vengeance Rising), while never forsaking his classic Ultimatum vocal style. It's rare to find a band able to progress and mature in their craft so much without changing their sound. If you like your metal fast, heavy, neck snapping, bone crunching, and old school then Into the Pit is your "stranded on a deserted island" disc. Careful though. This stuff is dangerously heavy! We warned you! Really, we did. This is where the heart of metal begins and ends!

VISION - MOUNTAIN IN THE SKY

Billy Powell (Lynyrd Skynyrd) played with Vision after the band signed with Heartland Records for a sophomore self-titled release in 1985. Five tracks from the debut would be completely re-recorded from the ground up, with significant differences in arrangement and production now that they were with a major label. Five other newly penned songs were also recorded, one of which was the anthemic "Standing On the Rock" which Heaven's Metal Magazine editor Doug Van Pelt would go on to claim was, "one of the absolute best Christian rock songs of the era." Powell's keyboards, which made Skynyrd's sound one of the most distinctive in rock and roll history, help Vision's sound resonate with power and authority. Marshall's crystal-clear rock voice (a la Steve Perry or Dennis DeYoung) brings clarity to a powerful message that continues to inspire and move people today. Vision put together all the necessities of a truly great rock band, combining elements of art rock with solid guitar-driven stadium rock. Marshall and company created a unique sound all their own that still sounds good 25+ years after it was first recorded! With prime riff-rockers from start to finish, this album is rock perfection. Steve Holland (Molly Hatchett) is quoted as saying, "Vision - I don't need no stinking Vision. I'm blind as a bat as it is....but this old bat has great hearing! And that's all you need to know with these guys! Wow!" Beyond the tragedy, the history, the raging guitars and the killer songs, ultimately, VISION is about an indomitable will; about survival of spirit; unbowed, uniquely American and stubbornly resolute. After MANY years of reissuing Christian rock and metal classics, this long out-of-print album has consistently been one of Retroactive Record's most requested reissues. All three Vision albums have been remastered for CD, with exclusive and insightful liner notes and 100% rock! The Mountain In the Sky album was an independent release on Dunamiz Records (1984). Impossible to find until now - remastered for vinyl, a 12x12 color insert, and heavy-weight vinyl - fans should prepare to lose control! This one has strong progressive overtones! For fans of Kansas, Styx, Mylon LeFevre and Lynyrd Skynyrd!

WHITECROSS & GUARDIAN - THE GREAT WHITECROSS & GUARDIAN REVIVAL

Whether you call it white metal or Christian rock, the names WHITECROSS and GUARDIAN are well known among fans of those circles, having sold about a million records and completed many worldwide tours between the bands in their heyday. While both groups reached their zenith in the '90s, 2017 brought about a revival of sorts as core members of both bands have formed a new lineup that will record and tour on some of the classic songs from each band. The energized lineup of GUARDIAN + WHITECROSS entered the studio with Rex Carroll at the production helm to record seven tracks for the album titled "Revival", which features new recordings of WHITECROSS and GUARDIAN classics, as well as a few surprises including a Jimi Hendrix cover song. For clarity, Jamie Rowe adds, "Neither the classic lineups of GUARDIAN or WHITECROSS have officially broken up. We're just having fun with this unique pairing. GUARDIAN + WHITECROSS is its own thing. Don't miss it!" Only 300 red vinyl records were pressed, and only 1000 CDs were manufactured. This is a one-time pressing - with no more units ever to be made. Get them while you can before they are commanding collector prices! Seven tracks and 34 minutes of high octane metal that's not to be missed!

XALT - DARK WAR

Dark War is an unabashedly "old school" metal record, and for as much as collectors have sought out this near impossible find, this 1988 cassette only album was an independent release put out by a band that was leading a Christian metal movement in Michigan, Ohio and the surrounding areas! The band would not have the support of a label (Pure Metal) until their sophomore release, Under the Ruins. Dark War has consistently been on the the most requested (and bootlegged) Christian Metal reissues list because the songs are nothing less than lumbering beasts with monolithic slabs of rhythm guitar, and hooks that bring to mind 1980s Dio - especially his work with Black Sabbath during their Heaven & Hell era. Its literally impossible to listen to such epic tracks as The Cross, God In A Box, and Dark War and and not imagine how easily Xalt could have become the next MTV sensations right alongside Stryper, Judas Priest, and Dokken. Yes, Dark War is THAT good! And, for almost 30 years its never been officially available in any format but cassette...until Retroactive Records reissued the CD in 2017, and this is the first time this classic has ever been offered on vinyl! Remastered for vinyl by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound), this reissue resurrects one of Christian Metal's greatest moments. Enjoy!

ACCUSER - CONFUSION ROMANCE

When talking about Teutonic (German) Thrash Legend Pioneers it's essential to speak of ACCUžER with the same hushed reverence as SODOM, KREATOR, and DESTRUCTION. ACCUžER is a thrash metal band from Kreuztal, Germany that formed in the early 80's flying the crunchy speed & thrash metal flag with all the fervor of the most intense mosh pit imaginable. Despite not landing a contract with a major label for their early albums, the band continued to release a string of successful underground releases before disbanding for eight years. After Frank and RenÚ decided to get Accuser back together, the saga continued with the band releasing one album with Century Media and their three most recent albums with Metal Blade Records. The guitars are energetic and thick as a brick with aggressive melodic vocals. ACCUžER is the perfect band for those who worship at the altar of technical thrash and speed metal in the vein of classic Metallica, Slayer, Believer, Death Angel, Dark Angel and Deliverance. With such strong lyrical content and musical brilliance, fans can now have access to these previously high-priced collectibles.

Overall this is a great album that could have been a 5 if it just had another track at the caliber of the title track. An absolute must have for fans of Metal Church and a great album for anyone else.A great song from start to finish that never makes you stop to think "This is definitely a long song."

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM - NO PLACE FOR DISGRACE

After all these years, 26 in count, surely it is far from being a disgrace; still there is no place for it, no way sir, especially when it comes to FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, old Metal sailors from Phoenix, Arizona, in the land of opportunities. Back in their youthful days, following the departure of Jason Newsted to METALLICA, after the debut hitter, "Doomsday For The Deceiver", FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, with Michael Spencer on board on the bass, issued, in my estimation, a fiercer Speed / Power / Thrash Metal nutcracker and possibly their finest work to date, right before entering the groove infested years of the 90's that changed the entire perception of Heavy Metal in the US, "No Place For Disgrace", originally by the relic Elektra Records. Spreading like a sort of disease, there has been a vibe within the veteran Metal bands nowadays to re-record, not just releasing another remastered version, their classic albums according to specific anniversary, commemorating a milestone. MANOWAR, did it twice, and TAROT among others that have already done it are among the names, and EMPEROR is about to do it with their classic. So FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, consisting the same lineup that recorded that early gem, rehashed the sharp edged sword of "No Place For Disgrace"

IN THIS MOMENT - BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY

The buzz generated from over a million plays of IN THIS MOMENT's tunes on the popular Internet community apparently got the attention of the Century Media folks and the rest, as they say, is history. And,the hype over this band's melodic, Swedish-inflected metalcore is not overblown. In addition to a load of good riffs and guitar harmonies, as well as a knack for writing strong melodies, the secret ingredient is the voice of front woman Maria Brink. Her singing is passionate and beautiful, yet not wimpy; the melodies written suit her perfectly and she really knows how to make a chorus come to life. At the same time, her harsh 'core vocals are ferocious as hell and sound better than many of her male counterparts. One of the best things that "Beautiful Tragedy" has going for it is the consistency of songwriting. Many albums of this type have a couple of catchy tunes and the rest begin to bleed together. By contrast, most of the songs on "Beautiful Tragedy" are rife with big hooks and killer axe work, the title track being the standout for an incredibly catchy chorus. But several other songs, such as "Ashes" and "Daddy's Falling Angel," are catchy too. Sure, the band follows a formula in the way that screams and melodic vocals are alternated in predictable places. Fortunately, IN THIS MOMENT gets it right, even in a world where every other band employs a similar songwriting style. It also helps that the tunes are largely up-tempo and stick to a Swedish melodic death metal style of arrangement that is not rife with breakdowns. Beautiful Tragedy is a 2007 masterpiece that breathed new life into a worn out genre. Collector's are treated to three previously Japan-only bonus tracks, a 16-page deluxe booklet housed inside a jewel case, a beautiful GoldMax CD with an In This Moment Ltd Collector Card, and it's all been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!

A HILL TO DIE UPON - HOLY DESPAIR

World War I provided the impetus for the theme of despair on A Hill To Die Upon's third black metal masterpiece. Plastic surgery was discovered because of inhumane wounds inflicted upon soldiers and civilians. Eyelids burned off require the doctor to pull skin from the patient's uninjured areas and grafts it like a bandit's mask onto the face. Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome forever haunts these victims. Search videos of victims of WW I "shell shock, wounds, and war." Try to understand what they went through. See how meaningless and unnecessary the Great War was. More than 1.5 million died in the Battle of the Somme alone. Two literary giants (C.S. Lewis & J.R.R Tolkien) survived, but who did we lose? Holy Despair was released in 2014, exactly one hundred years after the beginning of the "war to end all wars." Nekyia is a Greek ritual sacrifice performed to call forth spirits from the Underworld so that the living may communicate with them (see Homer's Odyssey). When performing Nekyia, one had to dig a pit and pour in the blood of a black ram. The ghosts would smell the blood and come to drink. Once your ghost drank the blood, you could ask whatever questions you had and converse with the dead. Nekyia seemed like the perfect metaphor for the trenches of World War I. Pits were dug and blood was poured into the fruitless soil. Holy Despair showcases extravagant lyrical depth and musical brutality to reach deep into the soul of the humanity and boldly call out grave injustice and senseless human suffering. Join A Hill To Die Upon in being impacted with reverent Holy Despair. God desires so much more for humanity. We should too. For fans of the blackened death metal of Behemoth, 1349, and Dimmuborgir!

ALLIES - ALLIES

With the 1985 debut album, Allies took the CCM world by storm with their brand of AOR commercial rock featuring mega-hooks with a distinct bite! Fans of Van Halen, Idle Cure, Journey, later period Sweet Comfort Band, and Petra would lose their minds as the band toured and dominated both radio and CCM sales charts. The 1986 sophomore release, Virtues would build on the band's strengths - melody, harmony, and massive hooks! Both the self-titled debut and Virtues are considered to be Christian rock royalty and this is the first time collector's will be able to enjoy these classics digitally remastered with 12 page inserts, an Allies foil-stamped trading card (in each release), and a must-read 2021 interview with guitarist, Randy Thomas that starts in the debut album, and concludes in the Virtues CD (get them both to read the entire interview and get both trading cards!).

ALLIES - VIRTUES

Remembered primarily as the first successful pairing of Bob Carlisle and Randy Thomas, the Allies produced classic rock-pop albums that were ahead of their time for the Christian market in the late '80s. Before the Allies, Thomas was already well known in Christian circles for his role in the highly influential group, Sweet Comfort Band (which also included Bryan Duncan). The demise of that seminal act led him to contact old friends for a reunion of ex's from two previous outings: he had played with Carlisle and Jim Erikson in the 1970's band Psalm 150 (which also included future members of AndraÚ Crouch's Disciples, Damn Yankees, and Night Ranger) and with Sam Scott and Matt Chapman in a group called Sonrise. Thus in 1984 the Allies were born in San Bernardino, California. In later years, Chapman would turn up playing bass in Clash of Symbols, and Carlisle would earn fame for his ballad "Butterfly Kisses," written with Thomas.

AMOS, DANIEL - DOPPLEGANGER: THE ALARMA CHRONICLES VOL.II

The most creative artists of alternative ccm are often consigned to the gospel market ghetto, while in actuality making artistic statements that perceive popular trends before their time. The great genius of pop music most hurt by this injustice is Terry Taylor of DA, and the strongest support for this argument can be found on the band's great classic album, Doppelganger. Taylor's brilliant satire of popular culture "Mall" the radio station in St Paul, MN began giving significant support to an enjoyable, but lesser song with almost the exact lyrics and ideas, "Escalator of Life," right down to the mannequin imagery. Taylor's brilliant attacks on televangelists in "I Didn't Build it For Me" and "New Car" predate the Swaggart/Bakker and more recent Robert Tilton fiascos. Elsewhere, as in "Here I Am," "Youth With A Machine" and "Autographs for the Sick," DA predates ideas that have made others a heap of money in pursuit of MTV fame & teenage superstardom. This is the record that was amazingly ahead of its time. This is the DA record that could have catapulted them into mainstream success if anybody had invested enough money into their career. This is the record you should buy immediately. No serious alternative music fan, Christian or otherwise, should miss this record. After nearly three decades it sounds no worse for the wear. In partnership, Stunt Records and Born Twice Records offer the Two-Disc Collector's Edition of Doppelganger by Daniel Amos. Disc one presents the album as you remember it, with remastered sonic clarity you may not have experienced before. Disc two gives you era-adjacent live versions, demos, and DA-oriented ephemera, letting the listener into the process of how this remarkable album was made and how it was received. Both discs have been remastered by the best in the business - J Powell at Steinhaus who carefully accentuates the original magic of this classic release. Comes in a 6-Panel Digipak with a 24-page booklet.

BARNABAS - APPROACHING LIGHT SPEED

Part of the Legends Remastered series on Retroactive Records! With the 1983 album Approaching Light Speed, Barnabas released what many still consider to be one of the very best albums in Christian progressive metal. With this release the band pulled everything together and upped the "Wow-Factor" to a new level. With the raging guitars of "No Freedom" launching the album to new heights, the album continued to progress and show artistic growth and maturity in astounding ways. Combine that with cutting-edge lyrics, spacey keyboards interlaced throughout, and textured guitars building to new sonic extremes, and metalheads everywhere were hooked. The recording and the mix of the album also went to new levels, allowing the depth of the music and songs to shine. Each instrument can be heard perfectly, and Nancy Jo's vocals penetrate the soul. Did we mention the guitars? They are LOUD! They are METAL. And, from this point on, they would define the Barnabas sound. In honor of 40 amazing years of Barnabas, this Retroactive Records reissue is packaged in a jewel case featuring a 12 page full color booklet with lyrics and band pictures, and writes-ups from both the label owner, Matthew Hunt, and Doug Peterson of Down The Line Zine. For fans of Rush, Dio, Resurrection Band, Vixen, Daniel Band, and Kansas (if they were metal!).

BARNABAS - FEEL THE FIRE

Barnabas developed a style of music that straddled the fence between energetic, aggressive power metal (like Iron Maiden, Dio, or Black Sabbath) and experimental progressive rock (like Rush, Styx, or Marillion). On top of the music soared the vocals of a chain-chompin' banshee lead singer who was all about putting her boot up the dark one's back side. The overriding question for Feel the Fire was obvious. Considering the artistic and commercial success of 1983's Approaching Light Speed, could the band capture lightning in a bottle twice? Barnabas was an amazing band, both because they were the heaviest Christian band of their era, and also one of the most creative lyrically and musically. They were as musically adventurous as Rush, but they would also put the hammer down and at any moment to grind out some extremely heavy metal - which they were doing a couple of years before the likes of Barren Cross, Philadelphia, Saint, Messiah Prophet, and Stryper appeared. And, while the band proved even more progressive in their metal for this release, the trademark foundations remained intact - smokin' guitars and top-notch instrumentation. With Feel the Fire, the band expanded the boundaries of Christian metal. Not satisfied with creating art by numbers or being a cookie-cutter band, it would be many years before anyone in Christian metal circles would touch the depth and creativity of Barnabas. With Feel the Fire, fans were treated to a mesmerizing magic slab of metal. One that couldn't be ignored or shaken. One that was impossibly irresistible and memorable. Indeed, Barnabas was unique in the truest sense.

BARNABAS - FIND YOUR HEART A HOME

Part of the Legends Remastered series on Retroactive Records! On Find Your Heart A Home, the remastered sound gives the album a second wind. The guitars and bass get their due place in the recording. This second album finds Barnabas losing Monte Cooley and gaining two guitarists, Mick Donner and Kris Brauminger, who play quite proficiently. Keyboards become a staple element due to bassist Mann's love for full arrangements. Find Your Heart A Home has a myriad of rock variation, from the hard rollicking to the blues-infused and even a bit of funkiness. In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Barnabas, all five albums will be reissued by Retroactive Records in 2017! The 2017 reissue features a complete remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks sound guaranteeing the album has never sounded better. This treasured classic is packaged in a jewel case with a 12 page booklet insert featuring write ups, band history, band pictures, and lyrics that make sure the album has never looked better!

BARNABAS - HEAR THE LIGHT

Part of the Legends Remastered series on Retroactive Records! When Barnabas embarked on their musical journey with the now critically acclaimed debut release, Hear the Light (1980), there were few bands doing anything like them in the faith community. There was Resurrection Band in Chicago, Bill Mason Band and Ishmael United in the UK, and Andy McCarroll & Moral Support in Ireland. When Hear The Light came out in 1980, it was truly unique punk-esque with a Christian identity. Barnabas, in their early formation, had guitarist Monte Cooley, who could write fast numbers with infectious distortion like no other. What placed Barnabas on top of the rock pile were Nancy Jo Mann's soaring vocals, backed by a beefy and intricate rhythm section. In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Barnabas, all five albums will be reissued by Retroactive Records in 2017! The 2017 reissue features a complete remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks sound guaranteeing the album has never sounded better.

BARNABAS - LITTLE FOXES

On 1986's Little Foxes, Brian Belew's pyrotechnic guitar leads continued to push the sound of Barnabas over the top. He was well known as a human dynamo of an axeman, one who routinely wow'd audiences by combining in-concert acrobatics with the fact that he never missed a note! Brian had an amazing ability to use tapping techniques, (pioneered by Eddie Van Halen), in incendiary ways that had never been heard before in Christian rock. Gary Mann's bass style was heavily influenced by bassists Geddy Lee of Rush and Dave Hope of Kansas. Gary drove the band from beneath, his playing coupling beautifully with the powerhouse drumming of Kris Klingensmith. Kris emerged as a talented lyricist, writing the words to nearly all of the band's songs on the last three albums as well as the notable words on the back cover of the Little Foxes album. Little Foxes marks the next step of Barnabas moving beyond the experimental and progressive sounds of Approaching Light Speed and Feel the Fire to embrace an all-out metal assault. Gone are most of the complex progressive pieces with keyboards that gave the listener moments to breathe on previous albums. Little Foxes is overflowing with urgency and is nothing less than full-on bombastic heavy metal at it's finest! The band seemed to know their final collective voice needed music as heavy as the message. Even in 2017, the message and the in-your-face metallic riffage remain engaging and mesmerizing. For fans of Jerusalem, Philadelphia, Metal Church, Saint, Testament, and Accept!

BARREN CROSS - ATOMIC ARENA

By the time 1988's Atomic Arena was released, fans had already been whipped into a feeding frenzy with the song Deadlock being included on the massively popular California Metal Compilation. The song demonstrated a significant leap forward from anything the band had ever done. Fans were demanding more, and it's hard to believe Barren Cross could have delivered a more perfect album than Atomic Arena. Most noticeably, the songwriting had matured with topics including abortion, suicide, cults and substance abuse - all presented in a skilled manner. Now signed to Enigma Records the band was labelmates with Ratt, Slayer, Poison, and Stryper and MTV's embrace of the album's opener, Imaginary Music showed that's exactly where they belonged. Mike Lee's charismatic Dickinson-influenced lead vocal style was perfect for an album that featured dominating fast-fingered shredding guitar work, resounding monster bass lines, and drums that pummeled the heart and soul of the most dedicated heavy metal fan. Yes, Atomic Arena was special and that's why the album was voted #11 on Heaven's Metal Magazine's Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All-Time. The 2020 reissue has been remastered to perfection and comes with deluxe packaging. This is the ultimate reissue for one of Christian metal's ultimate albums.

BARREN CROSS - HOTTER THAN HELL! LIVE

Nearing the end of relentlessly touring the Atomic Arena album, and having only two releases under the band's belt, Barren Cross pulled into the International Ballroom in Pico Rivera, CA to record this game changing live release. For many, Barren Cross defined "heavy metal" and Hotter Than Hell! Live only confirmed that conviction. Studio albums are supposed to be produced, calculated, and pristine. Live albums are supposed to let the band breathe and let the musician's talent and expertise shine though with no filters. That's exactly what happens with Hotter Than Hell! And that is why the band comes across like a full-throttle freight train - louder and more theatrical with an elite vocal performance and exquisite shredding guitars creating a metallic landscape making any metal fan feel compelled to instantly shoot up the Dio metal horns. The album also give bassist, Jim LaVerde the chance to thump his bass into oblivion, wielding his axe to some very memorable moments. Also included are two songs not found on any other Barren Cross release - "Opus To The Third Heaven" which is an all-out band jam and might be their most artistic and creative venture ever. The second unreleased track is "King Jesus & Blues Jam" which is a bluesy metal romp with non-stop soloing and elite axemanship. What cannot be denied is the sheer quality of every song on this live album as it includes 14 of the most important metal anthems that impacted the lives of metal fans in the 1980's. The 2020 Retroactive Records reissue gives this powerful album the deluxe treatment it deserves with an expanded booklet and a brilliant remaster that allows the magic of the original release to impact the listener more powerfully than ever before. So never forget, "he's the rock, the great I Am, the reason why we sing, he's the King of kings, the master of all things, the power and the source, the everlasting force."

BARREN CROSS - RATTLE YOUR CAGE

Released in 1994, this album got sandwiched between trendy grunge rock and alternative hipsters that thought "metal" was a dirty word. Metal bands were having the life sucked out of them. "Hairband" was a derogatory term, and stars of the LA Strip scene were treated like an embarrassing drunk uncle. Despite the anti-metal sentiments, Barren Cross defied all odds and put out an epic classic metal/hard rock album on Rugged Records. That label folded and the album went out of print almost as soon as it was released. While their 80s albums were more polished power metal meets LA glam, Rattle Your Cage has a production that is somewhat raw and stripped down. It's special to hear the band ripping full-throttle bluesy hard rock with an ever so slight 1970s throw back sound reminiscent of Die Happy and Badlands. Though a couple tracks here sound like they could have easily fit on the State of Control era format, expect classic American-styled hard rock featuring one AOR anthem after another. Fully remastered by Bombworks Sound for CD and Vinyl these deluxe reissue are vastly improved with all new artwork by Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal. The CD comes with a band foil-stamped trading card and the vinyl record comes with a 12x12 full color lyrics insert. For fans of Great White, Cinderella, Giant, and Black Stone Cherry, Kiss, and especially Guns N' Roses!

BARREN CROSS - STATE OF CONTROL

Remember those metal cassettes in your collection that had the song titles worn off, and even if you weren't religious you prayed that it would play just one more time for fear it would wear out? 1989's State of Control by Barren Cross was that cassette in many-a-metal fan's collection. Along with Stryper and Guardian, Barren Cross was one of the few bands that actually appealed to metal fans who didn't shop in Christian bookstores for their music. With the band's third release they once again expanded their lyrical content to tackle real-life issues like racism and relationships. Mike Lee shows more diversity with this vocal performance by channeling his inner Bruce Dickinson with a raspy voice and the operatic vocals showing only for the higher notes and choruses. The impact of producers John and Dino Elefante is significant with State. adding even more AOR pitch-perfect choruses in the background that gives this melodic heavy metal album its fair share of commercial appeal. One thing is for sure, the album includes exquisite rhythm parts, amazing solos, and everything you expect from elite heavy metal which is why it came in at #32 on the CMR Top 100 Christian Metal Albums. The 2020 Retroactive Records reissue is a collector's dream featuring a 16-page insert and a brilliant remaster (finally!). And, as a special treat for fans, this reissue includes both bonus tracks, "Your Love Gives" and "Escape in the Night." Few metal albums impacted the scene and the kingdom like State of Control. Enjoy!

BELIEVER - TRANSHUMAN

Transhumanism: The study of the ramifications, promises, and potential dangers of technologies that will enable us to overcome fundamental human limitations, and the related study of the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies. Few albums in the metal genre transcend greatness like Transhuman. Repackaged with an expanded 12-page booklet (with jewel case), digitally remastered (Rob Colwell / Bombworks Sound), and every CD comes with the exclusive foil-stamped trading card. All this is intended to delight and tantalize collector's who take their music seriously - sound - packaging - extras. Check - check - check. Bombworks Records knows how to take care of fans and collectors. Musically, Transhuman shows the band's willingness to grow and mature while still nurturing the fans who love the first three albums. In fact, the album from the band's past that Transhuman reminds us of most is Dimensions. If not in exact style, it resonates firmly in metallic innovation. Few bands have the talent and ability to embrace such an aggressive, technical, and progressive vibe, while sounding so unique. Voivod, Watchtower, Extol, Sadus, and Tourniquet can claim such elite status in the metal world - but Believer defines such categorization and claims ultimate power with their sovereign 2011 masterpiece, Transhuman.

BLOODGOOD - DANGEROUSLY CLOSE

The Beatles once sang, "It was twenty years ago today / Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play." In 1993, the trailblazing metal missionaries, Bloodgood, who taught and inspired many in the Christian metal realm how to play passionate music of both substance and power, took a hiatus to raise their families. But twenty years later in 2013, the band emerged unexpectedly to release their sixth studio album, Dangerously Close. You might think after so long a break, the band was ready to smooth out the metal onslaught and lean toward the mellow side of things. But those notions were soon detonated with the first opening sledgehammer riffs of "Lamb of God." Throughout twelve tracks, the passion and potent musicianship of this iconic band bleed through with a band that rocks hard with pulsating fury and intelligently written lyrics of faith that convict and inspire. Vocalist Les Carlsen has lost none of his vocal pyrotechnics, as the band, which includes Stryper's Oz Fox, pounds out anthems for a modern world. Les is joined by the twin guitar assault of Fox and Paul Jackson, together with the tight rhythm section of Michael Bloodgood and Kevin Whisler proving this band can still set the world on fire. Girder Records is proud to offer this modern classic in a Limited Edition CD, with new artwork that matches the vinyl version, and featuring the bonus track, "The Word," a Beatles cover, previously only available on the version released on the Swedish label Doolittle Group. Don't hesitate to snatch up this gem before you find yourself missing out on one of the band's finest musical achievements.

BOLDMAN, LOYD - SLEEP WITHOUT DREAMS (30TH ANN. EDITION)

Loyd Boldman is the man most people credit as the lead vocalist and keyboardist of the epic 80's Christian rock band, Prodigal. The reality is that at least three guys shared the lead vocals but without a doubt Loyd's big baritone rock voice could fill stadiums with his whispers! Yes, it's that powerful! After Prodigal released their third and last album in 1985, Loyd took the time to write and release some massive rock music with 1988's Sleep Without Dreams. Now most fans never knew this release existed, let alone owned it because Loyd self released this album on his own independent record label and only released it on cassette. But when Retroactive Records licensed the reissues of the Prodigal titles, they couldn't resist the opportunity to reissue Loyd's rock masterpiece on CD for the very first time ever! The album has been digitally remastered from the master tapes, and packaged in a jewel case with a 12 page booklet featuring amazing band pics, lyrics and a special tribute to Loyd written by Prodigal guitarist and long time friend, Rick Fields. Limited to just 500 copies, be sure to get this CD now while it's readily available!

BRIDE - HERE IS YOUR GOD

Bride has been releasing music for more than 30 years, and they are still going strong! "Here Is Your God" is the band's 16th studio album. It picks up where "Snake Eyes" left off and takes it to a whole new level. This album has major cojones! Here Is Your God, seamlessly blends elements from the first six Bride albums, creating nothing short of an epic hard rock and metal masterpiece. It's heavy as a freight train, and it's as melodic as Kinetic Faith & Snakes in the Playground. Some bands play around with sound, trying to appeal to modern fans, but Bride went back to their roots with Here Is Your God. This just might be the band's most accomplished moment and best release - ever. It's that good. Trust us! Expect a heavier, grittier sound more in line with mid-period Motley Crue (Girls, Girls, Girls & Dr. Feelgood eras). The Thompson brothers are skilled professionals in both style and execution, and this is one more Bride album that shows exactly why this band is the single most prolific Christian hard rock band ever - period. No band does heavy riffs, screaming guitar solos, and belting vocals better than Bride. The album captures all the brilliance of classic Bride, while reminding fans this band is definitely getting better with age. While it may be true that Here Is Your God could be the last push for these ground-breaking/genre-defining rockers, there is no denying the age-defying quality and intensity contained within these 12 songs. Dale sounds better than ever - his vocals right high up in the mix - and the venerable guitars of Troy cut through with conviction like it was 1990/1991 all over again. Brazilian, Aposan delivers a nice mix of speed and traditional classic hard rock/metal drumming, and Nenel's bass rumble drives Bride's rhythm as steady and prolific as it comes. The jewel case CD version comes with a 12-page booklet and each CD has one foil stamped trading card (either Dale or Troy Thompson - collect them both!).

BRIDE - INCORRUPTIBLE

Since their debut album took the Christian metal world by storm in 1986, Bride spent the next three decades demonstrating musical brilliance every step of the way. The band treated fan loyalty with sensational music, and thought provoking lyrics in a musical genre known best for pushing the musical equivalent of processed generic cheese down the throats of Christian hard rock enthusiasts. While contemporaries like Whitecross, Guardian, Barren Cross, and yes, even Stryper (with whom the band toured and the lead vocalist position was offered to Bride vocalist, Dale Thompson in the 90?s) all ?broke up? or took an extended hiatus - Bride never failed their fans, never broke up, and never made excuses. With Incorruptible, the band continues to push the envelope, delivering what critics are calling the best record of their distinguished career! Packaged in a full color 6 panel digipak, Bride?s 2013 release is both visually and musically stunning! For fans of Guns ?n Roses, Guardian, Extreme, and Stryper!

BRIDE - INTO THE MATRIX (1983-84)

Matrix was formed in 1983 and came to an end in 1985 when Troy and Dale signed their first record deal with Pure Metal Records. The name Matrix was changed to Bride during the signing of the contract. This also marked a transition from the Matrix sound to the heavier and more aggressive metal sounds of Bride. The original drummer, Steve Childress was replaced after two recording projects with Joey Johnson who lasted one project. Stephan Rolland replaced Joey and became the very first Bride drummer. Matrix played anywhere and everywhere they possibly could - churches, night clubs, and coffee houses. Matrix played wherever the doors were open! Painted in makeup, wearing spandex, teased hair, jumping off amplifiers, and setting off explosions on stage - they constantly pushed the boundaries of what a "Christian" band could do and be. Their big break came in 1985 when they opened a show in Pottstown, PA for Christian hard rockers, Daniel Band. Pure Metal Records/Refuge Music Group saw the performance and signed them to a contract that would begin a marvelous and diverse career as leaders in the Christian hard music scene for decades to come. The songs that appear on this disc are from the recordings of PG-13 & Monkey See, Monkey Do. Both were cassette only releases. Some of these tracks would go on to be re-recorded and used on future Bride releases. These are the original tracks, as recorded by Matrix in 1983 and 1984. This 2014 Retroactive Records reissue comes in a full color 4-panel digipak, completely remastered by the ultimate mastering guru, J Powell at Steinhaus. Never before have these songs been heard with the warmth, depth, and sheer grit that now exudes off of this top notch classic reissue. Long out of print, Retroactive went the extra mile by providing superb artwork to go with this long out of print reissue. Limited Edition. For fans of classic Bride, Guns 'n Roses, Whitecross, Stryper!

BROWN, JIMMY P. II - ERASERHEAD

For years Deliverance icon and creative mastermind has tried to balance speaking to fans of the thrash metal years, and fans of the Deliverance "creative years". With Jimmy P. Brown II's Eraserhead Jimmy is making a name change for the Deliverance sound that is full on heavy, metal, progressive, dark, and ultra-creative (but not thrash or speed metal!). Featuring Manny Morales on bass, and Jon Knox (Adam Again, White Heart, Great White) on drums - this is the same trio responsible for the epic Deliverance releases titled Learn and River Disturbance which both feature Jimmy Brown as a master axeman on rhythm and lead guitars. The album features the best musicians, the best songs, and the best music they have ever done. It's the ultimate ear candy for fans of Jimmy P. Brown II and the creative years Deliverance crew. CD comes with 12 page insert.

CASSELLS, ROB - BAND - STORMING THE CASSELS GATE

Evening Pastoral (DISC ONE) is Rob's first album, released in 1979. Blues, jazz, Prog, and Southern Rock. The album, which few have heard and has long been considered a rare gem by collectors, featured a young Steve Morse on guitar. Morse had just launched The Dixie Dregs, and would eventually go on to play with Kansas, Deep Purple, and Flying Colors as well. But back in '77 he was still just getting started with The Dregs, and with Morse's help, Cassel's passion, and the growing community forming around the music and the mission, Evening Pastoral was a solid debut that sparked bigger things for Rob and his friends. Kamikaze Christian (DISC TWO) was their second album recorded in 1982 and is more rock oriented). Although clinging to their "Southern Boogie" roots, Kamikaze leaned harder into the emerging hard rock sound that bands like Van Halen and Aerosmith were taking to FM radio and MTV. The album's single, "You Think I'm Crazy" played off the questions bystanders might ask about the seemingly illogical actions of someone caught up in the transformational power of love. Youth group kids relished the opportunity to own the craziness of radical faith, while Cassels found mainstream audiences receptive as well. Off The Wall (DISC THREE) In 1987 the band released an even more fully produced, and carefully conceived album called Off The Wall. The title track referred specifically to an inmate having his life changed by reading John 3:16 on his cell wall. The album may have seemed even more aggressive to mainstream Christian rock fans at the time, but the band knew who their audience was, and it was increasingly not church folks. 5 New Bonus Tracks (Also on DISC THREE) Five newer songs are included in this collection. "The Lord's Prayer," which features guitar work by both Morse and John Pickens of The Marshall Tucker Band, came to Cassels in a sort of vision and includes a 32-voice children's choir. "The Father In Me" was written for Cassel's daughter's wedding. "Cry Of My Heart" brings back the old-school blues shuffle, "The Right Road" is a guitar explosion, and "He Be Coming Back" slows things down a bit, bringing in some of the older, B3-laced, psych-rock groove of Cassel's roots. These newer songs, though tracked over thirty years later than the other songs in this collection, feel right at home.

CHRISTIAN, CHRIS - CHRIS CHRISTIAN 1981

As the first artist signed to Boardwalk Records owned by Neil Bogart, with Bob Gaudio (Four Seasons) producing, he recorded "I Want You, I Need You," which peaked at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1981 and reached the No. 8 on Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. "I Want You, I Need You" was a number one song in some countries outside the US. Cheryl Ladd sings back-up on the song along with many other artists on the album including Christopher Cross, Nigel Olsson, Frankie Valli, Dann Huff, Tommy Funderburk, Bill Champlin, Paul Jackson, Amy Holland, and Robbie Patton. Other artists on Boardwalk were Ringo Starr, Joan Jett, Mike Love (Beach Boys), and Night Ranger. Robert Kardashian (the Kardashians' father) was his best friend, manager and was responsible for Chris signing with Boardwalk Records. A second hit, a medley of the 1968 Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell Motown songs "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" and "You're All I Need to Get By" sung with Amy Holland, hit No. 21 on the Adult Contemporary chart and No. 88 on the Hot 100 in 1982. Long out-of-print, and never before available on CD in the US, this collector's dream has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, features exclusive photos packaged in a deluxe 16-page booklet (jewel case), and 6 bonus tracks!

CORONER - NO MORE COLOR (GOLD DISC EDITION)

No More Color is widely accepted the the epitome of perfect melodic technical thrash - - from the reunited Swiss trio. Imagine if Rush was heavier and more brutal, yet still painted glorious, swirling melodies, both guitar and bass. It's akin to a churning maelstrom of subtle, rich brutality; the kind of thing you'd listen to in a stage coach headed to a certain Count's castle in the Carpathian Mountains. Cheese grater sharp riffs slicing up and down your back for days, flowing bass lines that at times accentuate both the guitars AND drums, rasped out snarling vocals as opposed to the cookie monster, blink and you'll lose your place in the lyric sheet rumbled roaring that was so popular in the latter half of the eighties and still reigns today. Lyrics are intelligent; the closing song "T.V. Bizarre: Last Entertainment" even managed to foresee and rag on the senseless wave of reality television that now rules the airwaves. Other incredible tunes are opener "Die By My Hand," "Why It Hurts" and the incomparable, "Read My Scars." And, it's all encased inside a scant but perfect album length - just under 34 minutes. The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster comes on a Gold Disc for the first time ever, is packaged in a jewel case, and each CD includes a free Gold-Foil stamped collector card (first pressing only)!

CORONER - PUNISHMENT FOR DECADENCE (GOLD DISC EDITION)

The third album, Punishment For Decadence, by Switzerland's Coroner is arguably the band's peak in song writing and technicality, which doesn't prevent it from having classic hardcore punk inspired fast snare beats, as in the opening track, one of the best on this almost flawless album. It is a maze of riffs and beats without losing it's aggressiveness, it is as if Rust In Peace era Megadeth decided to get even more technical and lyrically more in tune with their first album. For those who wish Megadeth could've offered a much tidier and technical discography, doing something that was logical as a follow-up to Rust In Peace, Coroner is the band you need check out, as the band is one of the few thrash bands always seen referred to as as Tech-Thrash. The drumming is head spinning, the guitar and bass are extremely intricate but without getting into a masturbatory celebration of their skills, like what Dream Theatre did to a lot of 90's "metalheads" who were only into the music because it was 10 min solos and no sense of songwriting, Coroner does not do that. There are even choruses you can remember, not normally something "prog metal" bands can claim. The vocalist/bassist is intelligible, elite, and very much in the vein of classic thrash bands like Slayer and Metallica. The album is filled with absolutely insane timings, tempo changes and dizzying rhythms. Soloing is in the upper tier of thrash soloing too. Without a doubt, Punishment... is one of the band's finest moments along with 1990's "No More Color." The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster comes on a Gold Disc for the first time ever, is packaged in a jewel case, and each CD includes a free Gold-Foil stamped collector card!

CORONER - R.I.P. (GOLD DISC EDITION)

R.I.P. is the debut album released by the Swiss thrash metal band Coroner (1987). This album marks the first chapter of the band's progression and is characterized by raw speed and power (save for the instrumentals), very typical of thrash metal at this time. Formed in 1983, Coroner's music combines elements of thrash, classical music, avant-garde music, progressive rock, and jazz with suitably gruff vocals. With their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash, they have been called "the Rush of thrash metal." Coroner's sound then progressed and the production became more refined, resulting in more progressive albums. R.I.P remains a revered thrash classic for fans of classic Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax! The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster comes on a Gold Disc for the first time ever, is packaged in a jewel case, and each CD includes a free Gold-Foil stamped collector card (first pressing only)!

BORN TWICE
CROUCH, ANDRAE & THE DISCIPLES - JUST ANDRAE

Just Andrae' was originally released in 1972, as Andrae's very first solo album - the year before Andrae' Crouch & the Disciples legendary release Live At Carnegie Hall took the Jesus People Movement and Churches across the world by storm. A true pioneer of CCM, Crouch is credited with revolutionizing the sound of urban Gospel music. Crouch was instrumental in bringing Walter and Tramaine Hawkins, Jessy Dixon, and The Winans to Light Records, all enjoying successful gospel music careers. His influence has extended to countless artists like BeBe and CeCe Winans, The Clark Sisters, Wintley Phipps, Anointed, and Israel Houghton. With the 2014 Legacy Edition on Born Twice Records, this long out-of-print Crouch album has finally been digitally remastered, emphasizing the original album's magic in all it's glory. Andrae' is backed up by an all-star band featuring the talents of Hadley Hockensmith, Bill Maxwell, and Harlan Rogers (known as Sonlight - pre-Koinonia - be sure to get the 2014 CD reissue of KOINONIA - SONLIGHT). In addition, Danniebelle Hall, Paula Clarin, and Phyllis Swisher provide stunning background vocals.

DALLAS COWBOYS - CHRISTMAS

Hey, remember the 80s? What a crazy decade that was, right? We had movies about alien ducks and alien robots and alien, um, aliens - it was a fun and crazy time of American pop culture. But nothing was more fun than 80's music, and one of the treasures from 80's music is the Dallas Cowboys, who recorded and released the albums, "Dallas Cowboys Christmas" in 1985 and another in 1986. This 10-track album is filled with holiday spirit as members of the '85 and '86 Cowboys - including Danny White, who was an album producer - crooned such classics as "God Bless the Children" and "Silent Night," as well as the original gem, "I Don't Want to be Home for Christmas" (they wanted to be playing in the playoffs!). The Cowboys even had coach Tom Landry in a singing mood, as he joined in on this rendition of "Twelve Days of Christmas" that also amazingly foreshadowed the league's concerns about concussions and head injuries. Available for the very first time on CD, complete with deluxe packaging, a Tony Dorsett trading card, and a 2020 remaster this essential piece of 80's pop culture has been given the treatment it's always deserved. So indulge your love of 80's pop music, add this exclusive CD to your collection, and bring joy to the entire family at the same time!

DANE, WARREL - PRAISES TO THE WAR MACHINE (GOLD DISC)

In 2008 one of metal's most defining and revolutionary vocalists, Warrel Dane, celebrated his highly anticipated inaugural solo effort, "Praises To The War Machine", which saw him further honing his craft to perfection. Dane, who first shattered the boundaries of conventionality with the legendary Sanctuary and Nevermore, proved that he is one of metal's most diverse frontmen with this solo effort as he unleashes a barrage of introspective and personal lyrics that are heartfelt and extremely powerful. All of this emotion backed with his soaring angelic and dynamic vocals provides all of the necessary elements for a savagely captivating, melodic assault that quickly hooks you in. Before beginning this new venture Dane went out and surrounded himself with some of the best musicians that he could find. This search ultimately resulted in landing the renowned Peter Wichers (ex-Soilwork) on guitars and bass, Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork) on drums and Matt Wicklund (ex-Himsa) on guitars. The effort was also recorded and mixed by Wichers (coproducer Soilwork) and features guest musicians Jeff Loomis (Nevermore) and James Murphy (Obituary, Testament, etc.).Additionally this 2021 extended version reissues contains four live tracks from the album on side C featuring singer/songwriter Jonny Smokes which also will be available on all digital platforms. "Praises To The War Machine" is an absolute must for all Nevermore fans. Prepare yourself for the sheer beauty and elegance that awaits. Collector's are treated to a 16-page deluxe booklet housed inside a jewel case, a beautiful GoldMax CD, and it's all been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!

DEAR EPHESUS - THE ABSENT SOUNDS OF ME

There are a lot of great bands that released albums in 1998, and this one by Dear Ephesus may just well be the best. The band has crafted some great songs, which are bolstered by fine production. Shades of lo-fi guitars creep in, but they are complimented by a nice n' wide low end.

DELIVERANCE - AS ABOVE - SO BELOW

This 2019 CD Retroarchives Edition reissue features all new artwork that reflects singer, Jimmy Brown's original vision for the original release but was never accomplished. The mastering of the reissue is the same as the original 2007 release. Musically, this 13th album represents a unilateral step forward in the heavy music genre; few groups have ever blended epic thrash / speed metal with the elegance and beauty of progressive metal (later period Deliverance) with such devastating skill and brutality.

DELIVERANCE - ASSIMILATION

Music critic Angelic Warlord, called Assimilation "the most musically consistent effort from the band since its critically acclaimed 1993 work Learn." Tracks such as "The Circle" and "Save Me From." will pull you in with their technical prowess, while "Assimilation" and "Between 2 Worlds" give rise to a resounding heaviness. "The Limitless Light" and "Impressions," on the other hand, bring chorus hooks of a gripping capacity. Assimilation finds founding member Jimmy P. Brown II in top form with his doom-like and low-key David Bowie meets Geoff Tate (Queensryche) lead vocal abilities. 2019 reissue.

DELIVERANCE - DELIVERANCE (GOLD DISC)

Frightening, awe-inspiring, and absolutely relentless, Deliverance's self-titled album dropped onto the scene in 1989 with all the finesse of a metallic sledgehammer across the forehead. In 1987, Deliverance had made their presence known in dramatic fashion on the California Metal compilation (a sampler in the vein of Metal Blade's Metal Massacre compilations) with "Attack" being the very first thrash/speed metal song with a strong Christian message to ever be released. Overwhelmed with anticipation, fans lined up for two years trying to buy more of this West Coast speed metal as phenomenal as anything released by Exodus, Death Angel, Metallica, and Anthrax. The long wait ended with the release of 1989's self-titled debut, and fans were not disappointed. Having enlisted the production skills of famed mainstream metal producer Bill Metoyer (Flotsam and Jetsam, Trouble, Fates Warning, DRI, Slayer) the debut exuded all the pure destructive power for which fans could have hoped. Every note is executed with jaw-dropping levels of scientific precision. Jimmy's vocals are both powerful and soaring. The 2020 Retroactive reissue is a brand new Gold Disc remaster (Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound) and includes three non-LP demo songs as bonus tracks. The insert booklet features 2017 write-ups from band leader, Jimmy Brown, guitarist Glenn Rogers, bassist Brian Khairullah, and Pastor Bob Beeman. This is pure metallic brilliance packaged with a genius 12-page booklet laid out by NoLifeTilMetal's Scott Waters. Previous CD reissues of this classic album all had audio or graphics issues. This is THE ultimate reissue of one of a handful of Christian metal's ultimate albums. In addition, every CD comes with an exclusive trading card (gold foil stamped) inside the packaging.

DELIVERANCE - GREETING OF DEATH

Metallica had No Life Til Leather...an iconic demo that catapulted the band into unforeseen glory and status. Deliverance's Greeting of Death demo (1986) did the same thing for the most heralded Christian thrash act of all-time. Frontman, Jimmy Brown asked his girlfriend to draw up a cover of a Grim Reaper waving "Hi!" Inspired by a Chic Tract he had seen and she drew it, and used rub on letters from a stationary store. Jimmy made all the dubs from a tape deck that belonged to his sister. Three tape decks later, he had ordered 5,000 copies within a year's time. The demo gained a life of its own! People everywhere knew it! People would sing Speckled Bird (exclusive to this demo) when the band would go to shows and people at the shows were singing along with the songs from the demo! Greeting of Death was a very special moment in time, captured on cellophane magnetic tape and it propelled Deliverance to being a regular at the Sunset Strip and the newly emerging Christian Festival networks. With their roots deeply rooted in the Greeting of Death demo, Deliverance would release two of the most influential and critically acclaimed Christian thrash releases of all time in the 1989 Self-Titled and the 1990 release Weapons of Our Warfare. This 1986 demo, Greeting of Death is what propelled them to impact the thrash scene more than any other single Christian thrash band, ever. All three versions of this iconic demo were intentional in making it look, feel, and sound like the original release featuring the iconic cover drawn by Jimmy's girlfriend, and printed black and white on uncoated (flat/not glossy) paper just like the original demo. The cassette is a single J-Card insert featuring the original six tracks. The CD is a 12 page insert with lyrics and pages of iconic band photos with personal reflections form Jimmy Brown. The 12" Vinyl features the personal reflections, lyrics and rare bands photos on black vinyl (500 units pressed). Both CD and Vinyl feature the original six songs, plus the two legendary tracks off of the California Metal Compilation, Attack and A Space Called You. This demo came out years ahead of all other Christian thrash releases and opened the door for success for other bands like Vengeance, Believer, and Seventh Angel. The impact of Greeting of Death cannot be overstated, and this reissue gives fans a chance to taste of what the original release was like, but even better with the packaging, various formats, and the 2019 digital remaster from an all new source that is a substantial improvement from all other versions of this release. This is the ultimate Deliverance reissue that celebrates the impact of a band that has a musical legacy second to none. CD + LP + Cassette (limited to 100 copies). And yes, the album title is Greeting of Death, but the song on the demo is Greetings of Death. That's the way Jimmy's girlfriend heard it when he was telling her what he wanted, and that's the way she made it! Get them while you can - these are treasures! .

DELIVERANCE - LEARN

The fifth release by the L.A.-based metal band Deliverance, coming out in 1993. Learn is slower to mid-paced, filled with brooding, heavy riffs, distinctive bass lines, and vocals that at times recall Geoff Tate of Queensryche, Eric Clayton of Saviour Machine, and at other times, Dream Theater. And, while you can hear musical influences on the album, Deliverance was synthesizing them to create their own expressive landscape. Learn is a full-on metallic muscle flex of heavy metal. The music is thick, intentional, confident, and crunchy. While early albums sped through from beginning to end, Learn is determined to make the journey as enjoyable and delicious as possible - so no need to rush! This is the definition of epic, progressive heavy metal and it continues to be a high point in the Deliverance catalog and an album treasured by fans

DELIVERANCE - RIVER DISTURBANCE

Starting out originally as a speed metal act with influences of Metallica and Slayer shining brightly, the band's fourth album, Stay of Execution, signaled both change and growth in this epic metal band! This new sound was most noticeably embodied by vocalist Jimmy P. Brown II altering his vocal style singing much more like David Bowie and Saviour Machine's Eric Clayton. The vocals fit the newer direction musically and with 1994's River Disturbance, unleashed a new level of brilliance for Deliverance fans as they progressed into 1994 and beyond! A timeless album filled with haunting melodies and powerful metal music, River Disturbance ascended to new artistic heights. The 2018 Retroactive Records remastered (by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound) reissue is part of the Legends Remastered series and features enhanced original artwork, band photos, and lyrics.

DENY THE FALLEN - SYMPTOMS OF ETERNITY

Deny the Fallen is the new band featuring Rey Parra of Sacred Warrior, and more recently, Worldview fame. Also featured in this lineup is another Sacred Warrior alumni, Jonathan Johnson, with this marking their first time collaborating since 1991's Obsession release. Joining them for this release is Josh Johnson (drums), Harbor Horton (Rhythm guitars), and Erik Kyr (bassist). What we have here is a really heavy, hard rocking album. We are talking full-speed ahead power and crunch with progressive touches throughout. It is deep, aggressive and angry sounding metal with a message. The vocals from Rey are octaves deeper than normal with more grit and gravel sounding power, with the occasional added second growl vocals here and there. Musically the album is filled with heavy riffs, shredding leads, and a totally kicking rhythm section to hold it all together. The 2020 Retroactive Records release is an eight-page insert packaged in a jewel case.

ETERNAL DECISION - ED3

Eternal Decision put Oklahoma on the map with their 1996 release of the band's self-titled debut classic thrash album. The world was riding high on all things Metallica and the debut ED mastered the best of Metallica (Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning, etc). Christian metal fans were elated to have a band with bold Christian lyrics and that popular, addictive hard edged, radio-ready crunchy, chuga-chuga thrash metal. The 1996 album has been out of print for many many years, yet it was released three times by 1999! All of those releases had "issues" and the Retroactive records reissues have been given special attention to make sure fans are rewarded for their patience with the ultimate collector's reissues (for all three albums). With the second (Ghost...) and third (III) albums, Eternal Decision matures from the thrash-by-numbers perfection of the debut to emphasize huge, massive grooves (ala the Black album and Pantera) to go along with their love of thrash metal. Lyrical themes on Ghost in the Machine deal mostly with addiction and the constant struggle between spirit and flesh: "I need you now / To help me with this pain inside" ("Through the Pain"). The third album (III) features the ultra rare classic Deliverance cover of "Belltown" as it's bonus track. Now part of the Retroactive Records Metal Icon Series, metal fans can rejoice - these classics are finally available - looking and sounding the best they ever have - and each release includes the numbered collector's edition foil-stamped trading card to make these CD reissues even more essential purchases. For fans of Metallica, early Deliverance, Megadeth, Pantera.

GODMAN - HYPOSTATIC UNION

Godman is the musical union of 2 well known, veteran musicians in the Christian metal world- Tiago James de Souza (Hand of Fire, Perpetual Paranoia & Biogenesis) and Jonathan Johnson (Sacred Warrior, Deny The Fallen). Rounding out the lineup is Corey Sturgill the former drummer for Universal/ Republic recording artists FLAW. Though Jonathan and Tiago are known for their previous work and trademark sounds, Godman is a completely unique entity with a sound unlike anything either have done before. Extremely heavy and powerful and nearly impossible to define. Drawing on both writer's massive assortment of influences, this is a no holds barred barrage of intensity, wrapped in a blanket of melody and groove. Somehow completely modern and classic simultaneously. It is rare in this day-and-age to find something in heavy music that sounds like nothing else. Godman does just that - while feeling completely familiar at the same time. Produced by Jonathan Johnson, Godman's debut album Hypostatic Union on Bombworks Records has an extremely high end, modern production that compliments the sheer power of this band. This musical union is already taking the heavy music world by storm. The vocals and progressive metal bring to mind thrash legends, Believer, while the sheer heaviness and technical tenacity will appeal to fans of Origin, Godflesh, Soilwork, Shadows Fall, and Suffocation

GRAVE ROBBER - INNER SANCTUM

"Woafully" out-of-print, ?Inner Sanctum? is now being Remastered and Reloaded! Few bands have impacted a scene like Grave Robber. After their debut CD, Be Afraid made it on Heaven's Metal Magazines Top 100 Metal Albums of All-Time (as a punk rock band!), Grave Robber released their tour de force, Inner Sanctum (2009). Christian punk and metal's favorite zombies expanded their Misfits-clone sound to embrace the sweet, sweet nectar of "metal." Yes, it's memorable. Yes, it's super sing-able. Yes, there are "whoas" in every song. But Inner Sanctum is heavier, meaner, nastier than ever before. An album filled with anthems, reminding a generation that sometimes the walking dead in Christ need to roll up their sleeves, put on their battle jackets, raise the metal horns, AND crowd surf! With the original release long out-of-print, Retroactive Records is DELIGHTED to reissue one of label owner, Matthew Hunt's favorite all-time releases in a sturdy jewel case, expanded 12 page insert with rare band pics, lyrics, and a tremendous write-up from band founder and vocalist, Shawn Browning (Rottweiler Records). With a fresh remaster, we promise you this classic has been given the deluxe treatment even the pickiest of collectors will truly cherish.

GUARDIAN - FIRE AND LOVE (LEGENDS REMASTERED)

Fire & Love should come packaged with a rubber mat to prevent your jaw from shattering when it drops to the floor. Response to the album release (1990) was overwhelming, and the video for the song "Power of Love" was included in the MTV's Headbangers Ball rotation. The shredding melodic metal of their previous album is replaced by red-hot, fired-up commercial hard rock that is belted out with emotive power to spare by the awesome Jamie Rowe. Adding to the album's appeal is the legendary production talents of John & Dino Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon)! If you love big guitars (Palacios rips!), big hooks (Motley Crue would be jealous), big choruses (Bon Jovi would approve), big vocals (can you say wall of sound?), and big production (it's the Elefantes...what else do you need to know?), then you'll love this album, a true Christian hard rock classic. The CD release is packaged in a 6 panel jewel case with lyrics and a bonus track featured only on the CD version of the reissue.

GUARDIAN - MIRACLE MILE (GOLD DISC)

Teaming up with Dino and John Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon/Pakaderm Records) for 1991's Fire and Love album was a game-changing move for Guardian. The album was an overwhelming hit with fans, in regular rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, and the band turned into the consummate road warriors with extensive U.S touring throughout 1991 and a European tour with Stryper in 1992. With all the touring, the band made the decision to move, families and all, from Los Angeles to Nashville in order to take things to the next level. Not content to make their third album Fire & Love Part 2, Guardian reflected on two years of touring, all their success, and began to dream of what album number three might be like. Bach was influenced by a movie that featured a turn-of-the-century carnival that had terrifying and mystical effects on the towns it visited. Bach was also fascinated with the religious tent revivals from the same period that had such a profound effect on the U.S. landscape. He began envisioning an album that combined the two elements, with snake oils, side shows, carnivals, and deep spirituality. The rest of the band bought in to this concept, and Miracle Mile was born. The album demonstrates a band locked in as a cohesive unit, being fun, imaginative, and creative in ways that pushed them far beyond anything they had ever done. Miracle Mile built off bands like Tesla, Extreme, and Giant but was distinctly Guardian. Miracle Mile is the band's undisputed Sgt. Pepper, their Appetite for Destruction, their Back in Black. This is the band's defining moment, at the top of their game.

HAVEN - III (RETROARCHIVES EDITION)

LIMITED EDITION - JUST 500 UNITS PRESSED! Originally released by the band independently in 1995, four years after the sophomore release, Age of Darkness. The album was pieced together by golden throat vocalist, Kevin Ayers as various members of the band were available over the four year period. Also, gone are the million dollar studios and producers that recorded the first two Haven classics. Haven III was recorded on Kevin's home recording studio in his garage in the 90's! In the words of the Supreme Metal Historian, Scott Waters (Ultimatum), "Despite the four years between releases, the music has not changed dramatically. As with past albums, however, the lyrics are awesome, although they are a bit more praise oriented rather than some of the more social lyrics of the past." With 8 of the 13 tracks tracking in at 6-7 minutes, you know you are in for a tremendous melodic, progressive power metal adventure! This Retroactive Records reissue has been carefully remastered by veteran, Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound), along with a 4 panel insert and jewel case release with superbly enhanced original artwork. In fact, we love you so much, we included an unreleased bonus track left off the original release because it has more of an industrial metal vibe to it, called, "From Everlasting". Haven's third masterpiece has never sounded, or looked better! For fans of Sacred Warrior, Iron Maiden, Recon, Queensryche!

HAWKINS, WALTER - FEEL LIKE SINGING

Contemporary gospel pioneer Walter Hawkins (brother of Edwin Hawkins of "Oh Happy Day" fame) delivered hit after hit with his series of Love Alive choir albums during the 1970's. The focus was on tight vocals, impeccable arrangements, and the astoundingly soulful counter-tenor of Walter himself. By the early 1980's, Hawkins and his group of tremendously gifted singers and musicians (including wife Tramaine, sister Lynette Hawkins-Stephen and cousin Shirley Miller) had made their mark. I Feel Like Singing, released in 1982 on Light Records, cemented it. Listen to "He's Everything," a potent ballad that brings the solo power of Shirley Miller up front. Miller also joins Hawkins on the infectious title cut, trading leads. The tightly woven harmonies of "Hang On In There" make the song a cult classic even today. Tramaine Hawkins is featured on "Coming Home." Already establishing herself as power ballad singer, her soprano excellence here emphasized her versatility and widened her fan base further. Then there were the duets. The ebullient brassiness of Lynette Hawkins Stephens paired wonderfully with Daryl Coley's smooth runs on "Do Your Best." On "Heaven," Edwin Hawkins enters first, and then Walter takes over and blows the proverbial lid off the cut with his high tenor. Remastered and available on CD for the first time since it was first released, I Feel Like Singing is a most welcome keepsake and reminder of the glory days of Walter Hawkins. Written by Stan North (Managing Editor, GOSPELflava.com) with Gregory Gay This 2013 remastered reissue of this classic album is the first time this brilliant release has ever been available on CD! It features a 4 panel, full color digipak, with liner notes written by GOSPELflava editor, Stan North and Gregory Gay! This is a Limited Edition release with only 1000 copies being manufactured!

In 1986 and 1988, Heretic release two iconic and collectible power thrash metal albums on the young Metal Blade Records. Members would go on to play substantial roles in both Reverend and Metal Church. In 2012 the band reformed and signed with a German label would released A TIME OF CRISIS on CD and it quickly went out of print, fetching ridiculous prices if you were lucky enough to even find a copy. Brutal Planet Records is fixing a grave injustice....reissuing this tremendous powerful, thrash metal album on both CD and Vinyl. The album features legendary axeman, Glenn Rogers shredding and thrashing as if his life depended on it. Glenn was in both early incarnation of Deliverance and Vengeance contributing and writing many of their most legendary tracks. Glenn now plays in Primal and Deliverance as his current gigs. Angelo played in both Hirax and Reverend, and Brian also played in Reverend. This historic release is once again available on CD, and for the very first time, Vinyl (featuring a full color, two-sided lyrics & picture sleeve). The riffs, the crunch, the full-steam ahead thrash metal is everything thrash fans could want. For fans of Vengeance, Deliverance, Metal Church, Reverend, Meliah Rage, and Anthrax.

HOLY BLOOD - DAY OF VENGEANCE

Ukrainian Christian metal band, Holy Blood helped launch the fledgling Bombworks Records off the ground with each of their first two releases selling an astounding 2500 units! Over a decade later, the band is now releasing their fifth album with Bombworks, DAY OF VENGEANCE! Known in the past for their Folk/Medieval/Pagan Metal, the new album is in your face, full on melodic death metal/viking metal that would be comfortable playing alongside Amon Amarth, King of Asgard, and Manegarm. The artwork is striking, featuring a warrior, perhaps an Archangel, the leader of the Heavenly Host, holding a severed head of a defeated arhi demon. This shows a triumph over the world's human powers, as well as a defeat of the powers and principalities, and the rulers of the darkness of this world. For fans of creative extreme metal, with something worth saying!

IN THIS MOMENT - BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY (GOLD DISC)

The buzz generated from over a million plays of IN THIS MOMENT's tunes on the popular Internet community apparently got the attention of the Century Media folks and the rest, as they say, is history. And,the hype over this band's melodic, Swedish-inflected metalcore is not overblown. In addition to a load of good riffs and guitar harmonies, as well as a knack for writing strong melodies, the secret ingredient is the voice of front woman Maria Brink. Her singing is passionate and beautiful, yet not wimpy; the melodies written suit her perfectly and she really knows how to make a chorus come to life. At the same time, her harsh 'core vocals are ferocious as hell and sound better than many of her male counterparts. One of the best things that "Beautiful Tragedy" has going for it is the consistency of songwriting. Many albums of this type have a couple of catchy tunes and the rest begin to bleed together. By contrast, most of the songs on "Beautiful Tragedy" are rife with big hooks and killer axe work, the title track being the standout for an incredibly catchy chorus. But several other songs, such as "Ashes" and "Daddy's Falling Angel," are catchy too. Sure, the band follows a formula in the way that screams and melodic vocals are alternated in predictable places. Fortunately, IN THIS MOMENT gets it right, even in a world where every other band employs a similar songwriting style. It also helps that the tunes are largely up-tempo and stick to a Swedish melodic death metal style of arrangement that is not rife with breakdowns. Beautiful Tragedy is a 2007 masterpiece that breathed new life into a worn out genre. Collector's are treated to three previously Japan-only bonus tracks, a 16-page deluxe booklet housed inside a jewel case, a beautiful GoldMax CD with an In This Moment Ltd Collector Card, and it's all been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!

JAG PANZER - THE AGE OF MASTERY (GOLD DISC)

JERUSALEM - DANCING ON THE HEAD OF THE SERPENT

Dancing... was recorded only in English, although there are two different versions. The original version was released in Scandinavia in 1987 on JM Records. In 1988, Refuge Records released a re-recorded and remixed version in the United States, with slightly different artwork. The 2018 Retroactive Records release is a 2-CD Set featuring one CD of the USA recording and one CD of the European version of the recording. Trust us - there is a huge difference between the two versions and both are awesome! We will say the European version is "dirtier" and several songs feel drier and grittier like classic AC/DC!

KING'S X - MANIC MOONLIGHT (GOLD DISC)

The 2001 third album in a trilogy of self-produced albums on Metal Blade Records - the band was tired of chasing the big-time and decided they would not bring in demos, but instead write the album from start to finish AS A BAND. Manic Moonlight is the result! King's X has never wanted to be a typical band, and this holds true for their ninth album. The arrangements on Manic Moonlight are progressive and jazzy with clever hooks that might require a few listens to sink in--but after that they become irresistible. There's also more of a funk influence here, with album opener "Believe" (about Doug's struggle for self-acceptance) setting the tone with a fine groove with the song being another track of super-tight riffs stopping and starting in perfect time, over and over again. "Skeptical Winds" explores the style more deeply with touches of R&B and soul, and the heavy bass line coupled with hard-rock crunch on "Vegetable" is classic King's X. The Gold Disc also includes the Japan-only long version bonus track of "Vegetable" in addition to the Japan-only long version bonus track of "Believe." "Static" experiments with dark ambient rhythms and odd samples, becoming a wall of metallic noise and screaming guitars. The wonderful lush harmonies that have been a King's X trademark are present on the melodic "Jenna" and the dreamy, uplifting "False Alarm," which stand strong next to the album's harder moments such as "Yeah" and title track. It's another fine album from this very talented and underrated band. Now the album get's the deluxe Gold Disc treatment with an expanded booklet with lyrics and additional band pics. And, every CD comes with an exclusive King's X foil-stamped collector's card!

KING'S X - PLEASE COME HOME MR. BULBOUS (GOLD DISC)

Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous album title was selected because the band was convinced Gretchen Goes....was a terrible album name that worked out pretty well, so the band went with PCH...MB and decided the title means nothing, or it meant everything. Once again, the band was writing the album together in the studio, and the guys hit some real high moments. At Brutal Planet Records, we remember being less than enamored with this album when it released. But 20+ years later, we dare say the album has aged better than any album we have ever heard. Songs like "Fish Bowl Man," "Julia,", "She's Gone Away," and the unforgettable, "Charlie Sheen" (not actually about the actor, really) are some of the most exquisite tracks ever to grace a King's X album. The album is nothing less than pure, rock and roll brilliance from a band no longer trying to be a commercial success, but simply creating music that reflects their hearts and souls. How much more can a band offer it's fans? Stretching themselves on this album more than any other, they went outside the box and they created a masterpiece together, from scratch. Now the album gets the deluxe Gold Disc treatment with an expanded booklet with lyrics and additional band pics. And, every CD comes with an exclusive King's X foil-stamped collector's card!

KING'S X - TAPE HEAD (GOLD DISC)

The band's 1998 magnum opus, "Groove Machine" launches the album like a rocket ship on it's way to outer space! Full of molten metal, and grooves so heavy it's been known to cause kryptonic drooling! For many, this album is a triumphant return to the classic King's X sound, while still exploring new territory for a band unwilling to stay the same, and thankfully so! The album flows with the perfect mix of heavy groove and melodic sensibility, with no shreds of the early prog-ish King's X sound. The songwriting is excellent on this album, as expected. The musicianship is elite, with perfectly placed guitar fills, basslines, and of course the signature vocal harmonies. Can it get any better? This is classic King's X with no restrictions, no producers, and no record labels driving them for the next radio hit. This is straight up King's X, very neat, and it goes down ultra-smooth. Indeed - this is top shelf stuff. Compared to Ear Candy (also brilliant), Tape Head is a monolithic slab of epic proportions. Now the album get's the deluxe Gold Disc treatment with an expanded booklet with lyrics and additional band pics. Also included is the Japan-only bonus track, "Two." And, every CD comes with an exclusive King's X foil-stamped collector's card! Indeed - it's time to upgrade the stereo in the car - and turn it UP! Welcome to the GROOVE MACHINE!

BORN TWICE
KOINONIA - SONLIGHT

How many countless Christian LPs have the Sonlight boys appeared on over the years? Most notably, they served as the back-up band for early CCM legend, Andrae Crouch. Although keyboardist Harlan Rogers, drummer Bill Maxwell, and guitarist Hadley Hockensmith would record several jazz albums in the 80's as Koinonia, this is their only 70's collective effort using the Sonlight moniker. Originally the album was released as a 1973 self-titled LP on Light Records with the band name "Sonlight." At the time, Fletch Wiley was also in the group, contributing trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, and flute. Wherever these guys appear as session musicians, there is usually a jazzy poprock atmosphere, and that's the case here as well. Songs like "Day of Salvation" and "I Saw His Face" have that soft breeze jazz-pop vibe with easy listening vocals and airy harmonies. Also a few MOR ballads in here typical of the Light label. The brass works well on "Walk in the Spirit," a slow funk tune with fuzz guitar. On other tracks, the horns take a back seat like the gospel edged "Standing In the Liberty," or the slow rocking "Freedom Bells;" both featuring The Band-like classic rock influence. In the heavier category are "The Way" (with good muscular guitar work), and "The Truth of Salvation," an energetic jazz-rock workout where the guitar and organ truly get down and jam. Sharp cover art, the four guys' heads fused into what looks like an orange psychedelic fireball. This 2014 release is the first time this long-lost classic album has been available on CD.

LIBERTY 'N JUSTICE - THE VOW

Most hard music fans identify with Liberty N' Justice as an "all star project" due to the recent history of founding member Justin Murr. Starting with Welcome To The Revolution from 2005, Murr has recruited some of the best musicians and vocalists in the business (both past and present) to assist with the songwriting and recording of each LNJ album. Welcome To The Revolution, for instance, featured eighteen different vocalists, including Michael Sweet (Stryper), Ken Tamplin (Shout), Jamie Rowe (Guardian) and Lou Gramm (Foreigner). The trend continued over the next eight years, with LNJ releasing five full-length studio albums, one EP and two compilations before culminating with the 2013 2-CD set The Cigar Chronicles in which 76 guest musicians participated.

LIFESAVERS (MICHAEL KNOTT & LS UNDERGROUND) - HEAVEN HIGH

"I will just come out and say this is my favorite Lifesavers album. Heaven High combines the energy of Huntington Beach with the catchiness of Poplife and the lyrical depth of Dream Life. and then mixes in all the new influences Knott and company bring to the table. Co-writer and bassist Joshua Lory shows that he fits in just fine with the surf power pop punk Lifesavers sound. So far, the buzz on this one has been consistently positive across the board. Even those few that didn't go for the heaviness of PTSD are digging these tunes. The only complaint is that the 10 songs are just not enough - but maybe that is because there is some familiar ground covered. A few of these songs were originally recorded on the first All Indie EP in a much different format. Then there is the "This is the Healing" reprise at the end of "Stereo Radio." But those are more just nods to the past that help to anchor this in Knott cannon. Overall, the album is great music to drive around and enjoy the summer with. The CD version is available on Retroactive Records as a 4 panel, full color digipak release. The CD version has been digitally remastered by J Powell at Steinhaus for maximum ear candy (the digital release has not been remastered, so get the CD!)."

LOOMIS, JEFF - PLAINS OF OBLIVION (GOLD DISC)

At 16 years of age, Loomis won a guitar competition in Wisconsin, and was auditioned to replace Jeff Young in Megadeth (he was not chosen due to his young age.) Jeff ended up joining Sanctuary during the tour of the album The Mirror Black. Just after the tour, the band dismantled and he created Nevermore with ex-members Jim Sheppard and Warrel Dane. As a result of his invaluable contributions to Nevermore's trademark sound, Jeff Loomis has become one of modern Metal's most recognizable guitarists and the source of many of the last decade's best riffs. Taking the classic techniques he learned from listening to legends like Jason Becker and Yngwie Malmsteen as a teen and applying his own ingenuity, he has managed to carve his own niche and create an instantly recognizable style. Plains Of Oblivion is a tour de force display of guitar virtuosity and something Nevermore fans will welcome with open arms. Collector's are treated to a 16-page deluxe booklet housed inside a jewel case, a beautiful GoldMax CD with a Jeff Loomis Ltd Collector Card, and it's all been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!

LOOMIS, JEFF - ZERO ORDER PHASE (GOLD DISC)

At 16 years of age, Loomis won a guitar competition in Wisconsin, and was auditioned to replace Jeff Young in Megadeth (he was not chosen due to his young age.) Jeff ended up joining Sanctuary during the tour of the album The Mirror Black. Just after the tour, the band dismantled and he created Nevermore with ex-members Jim Sheppard and Warrel Dane. This the 2008 solo album from one of the best guitar players in the metal world - Nevermore's Jeff Loomis! Loomis is arguably metal's very best guitarist and this album has all of his signature sounds. This instrumental album is different from most guitar-driven instrumental albums because the songs are not just a showcase of guitar virtuoso, as it showcases Loomis's excellent song-writing skills. Instead of a bunch of out of control solo's, listeners are treated to real songs that could very well been transformed into songs for the next Nevermore album. The lack of a singer does not take away from the music, it does however showcase an amazing guitarist at work. Collector's are treated to a 16-page deluxe booklet housed inside a jewel case, a beautiful GoldMax CD with a Jeff Loomis Ltd Collector Card, and it's all been remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!

MAD AT THE WORLD - FLOWERS IN THE RAIN

On their fantastic, 2nd album release Flowers In The Rain, Mad At The World prove that these two brothers (Roger and Randy Rose) still have incredible staying power. Mad At The World continues to pay homage to some of the best artists and bands to come out of the 80's. On Flowers In The Rain, the band once again combine elements of Pet Shop Boys, The Cult, New Order, Human League, Depeche Mode, The Smiths and a cluster of different elements from some of the best of 80's new wave. Roger Rose's unmistakable, gothic-esque voice strongly resembles Wayne Hussey (Mission UK). Though, not as exclusively synth driven as their debut album (expect a few tracks with some gnarly, mean guitars), Flowers In The Rain strikes back with strong melodic and danceable songs while still delivering their thought provoking and powerful message. Flowers in the Rain allows you to relive that wonderful experience of listening to an album from start to finish, with no filler and nor missing a single beat. Flowers in the Rain (Legends Remastered) is must have for any serious synthpop and 80's fan's collection. The 2019 limited edition (500 Units) reissue on Retroactive Records features a complete digital remaster by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) allowing the warmth, pop, and classic 80's sound to breathe like never before. All this is packaged in a 12 page booklet with lyrics and band pictures inside a quality jewel case. In addition the band provided us with an exclusive rare demo track which is a early version of the song, "Flowers in the Rain" simply called "We Are the human Race." You won't want to miss it!

MAD AT THE WORLD - HOPE

Roger and Randy Rose from Mad at the World are back at it, with a powerful re-visit of their early synth-heavy albums. Being a fan of MatW and of good synth work, their album Hope fails to disappoint. The synth structures and sounds are reminiscent of the eponymous first album and the powerful subsequent release of Flowers in the Rain. Fans of 80s synth pop and industrial will find this album a treasure. While the influences from that time are strongly represented, the Rose bros. (I hope they will forgive the use of the phrase!) bring a fresh eye to the music and make it musically contemporary. The album's title, Hope, is befitting the overall sentiment and lyrical content. The writing is honest, inviting, and unapologetic in presenting their theological views. It's not preachy, yet a genuine expression of heartfelt sentiment. The first track, "Healing on Planet Earth," is a great introduction to the overall theme. While retaining a sadness and darkness MatW listeners are familiar with, the familiar sense of real, objective hope in the world that has ever served as a stamp of their music. This track is a pleading prayer asking for a return for love and understanding on Earth. A hopeful return of what we appear to have lost touch with and perhaps failed to expand, leaving it withering on the vine as it were. It finishes with a plea to Jesus to heal us again. "My Old Best Friend" is a send-off to one's old self and welcoming a renewal of heart. Very nice piano work in this, accompanied by some synth backgrounds. "You are Free" engages strongly in a celebration of the rchestral Hit' sounds common to the 80s, yet as strong as a sound as it is, it's pronounced yet not overbearing in this song. Perhaps it's best use is accomplished in this song. "I can't help but wonder if God is real, or I'm the one to blame, for all my shame" is a well-constructed lyric that is strong and very accessible. In some instances, it brings tears to one's eyes. The chorus, "you are free," is moving. "Moving In and Moving Out" has a very deep synth bassline line continually throughout. As great as all the synth work is in this, the bassline is a favorite feature in this song. The story of the song tells of a malfunctioning love relationship. The sounds of "Never Gonna Stop" is reminiscent of Depeche Mode's People Are People era, though more of a thoughtful reflective sound than D.M. expressed in their earlier material. This piece is about Jesus stating that he's "never gonna stop my love for you." Quite powerful. "Can You Feel My Pain?" Is a powerful representation of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane expressed through contemplative piano work backed with strong synth. At least, that's what the reviewer feels the message is. Something to contemplate in the dark. "That's What He Said" has a great danceable synth backdrop. At least it's a head-bopping sentiment. The lyrics again are powerful. "There's no turning back. There's no going home. Everything about you, belongs to me. You're not your own." There's a bit of D.M. sounds in this as well, but definitely in a unique presentation. The D.M. is merely a garnish for the overall song here. A meditative, slow synth-bass wash defines the backing sound of "Just Beyond the Clouds of Grey." "A price too high to pay for, I'll be your currency." "Break Me Down" is a surrender to divine love. Very nicely constructed, pointing out a synth sound reminiscent of a 60s garage rock over the bass and synth background. Nice bassline too! It's got a alking rhythm' that works perfectly for the song's theme. "You Belong to Me" wraps up the theme of hope expressed in the title and encompassing the message of this album. Piano and synth work in this song is great. "Don't you know you belong to me? You always belong to me." Overall, many influences can be heard or almost identified, yet Mad at the World retains a uniqueness that separates them from any other band. I mentioned Depeche Mode as an influence, yet there are so many throughout from which they may have borrowed snippets from it's difficult to identify, and certainly would be an entire article unto itself. I thought to hear (consciously on their part or not) influences from 70s greats like 10cc and Steely Dan, although I suspect their musical knowledge accesses a catalog extending beyond that which many are familiar. I also think to hear touches of David Ball's excellent keyboard work from Soft Cell and perhaps a smidgen of Nitzer Ebb. This reviewer hopes to not take away anything from this album or the overall brilliance of the brothers Rose. The influences, real or imagined, take nothing away from this album. The art that is produced is its own unique, viable, and wonderful creation. The musicianship is remarkable, the lyrics heartfelt and evocative. From what can be gathered, it seems that this album is just the first of a series of albums to come from Mad at the World, expressing different eras of their sound in new and fresh ways. This sounds like an exciting prospect, and this album definitely enthuses one for future releases, and encourages a delving into their past material.

MASTEDON - LOFCAUDIO (GOLD DISC)

Bon Jovi has Slippery When Wet, Boston has More Than A Feeling, Van Halen has 5150, and Mastedon has Lofcaudio. After the success of their debut album in 1990, John and Dino Elefante formed Pakaderm Records and released this, their second album, Mastedon - Lofcaudio on their own label. This album also features an all-star cast, but most of them aren't named because of legal issues with other record labels. As good as 1989's It's a Jungle was, it's hard to believe the band could do any better. The talent of these brothers and the faith of the fans propelled Lofcaudio to a level few expected. Yet fear not, as high expectations did not detract from the album's majesty. It pulls together everything that is glorious and important about AOR and distills it sublimely. It was as if the Elefante's were on a dangerous and relentless search of pure melodic rock perfection, and somehow, someway they found it with Lofcaudio. It's rare that both critics and fans adore a band and an album this much. So get this 2020 Girder Records reissue of an album that captures lightning in a bottle, and enjoy the remastered and reloaded versions. Grab your air guitar, your air mic, sing these songs at the top-of-your-lungs with reckless abandon and be one more guest musician to make top-shelf music with Mastedon!

MINIER - MINIER (EXPANDED & DEMOS)

Limited to just 500 units pressed! Originally released on the legendary R.E.X. Records in 1990, this 7 song EP of crunchy Bay Area Thrash was of special interest because Minier was none other than Greg Minier of the already legendary punk/thrash/metal crossover legends, The Crucified! He recorded the album at Casbah Studios with a budget of $400. When R.E.X. heard it, they fell in love with it and released it exactly as Greg had delivered it to them. Of special note, Greg was highly influenced by Metallica's (at the time) newly released, And Justice For All album.....and when he ran out of money recording his album, he figured if Metallica could release their album without bass, then so could he! So this classic Minier CD followed in the footsteps of And Justice For All....featuring whiplash guitars, dense drums, Hetfield styled vocals, but no bass! The 2017 Retroactive Records remastered reissue also features various demos recorded in Greg's bedroom. Limited to just 500 units pressed, get it now while you can. For fans of classic era Metallica, Deliverance, and Megadeth!

MODEST ATTRACTION - DIVINE LUXURY

Featuring Christian Liljegren (pre-Narnia) and Mick Nordstrom (ex-Leviticus) Modest Attraction rose from the ashes of the elite Swedish melodic band, Borderline whose demos ruled the Christian metal underground in the late 80's. After a couple of classic demos, the band recorded and released their second album themselves and was available exclusively as an import in the states. Divine Luxury (1996) built on the enormous success of the debut and blew away both critics and long-time fans. Memorable, exquisite, super-heavy, and firmly planted in the 70's with a modern day production, Divine Luxury show cased the band at the top-of-world of heavy metal. To this very day, Retroactive Records owner, Matthew Hunt claims this album as one of his all-time favorites! It's THAT amazing! Digitally remastered by none other than Narnia axeman, C.J. Grimmark and the layout handled by none other than NoLifeTilMetal's Scott Waters - the album has never looked or sounded so elite and professional. Every CD comes with a Modest Attraction foil-stamped trading card! Even though Nirvana and Soundgarden were ruling the radio charts in 1 and 2, Modest Attraction was leading the retro movement early on, and combined the extravagant showmanship of Queen with the deep 70's vibes of classic Deep Purple, The Sweet, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Led Zeppelin. Modest Attraction embraced the retro-vibe in every way - featuring members with full-blown long-hair, platform shoes, and colorful stage clothes including flared trousers - and it connected with fans in a serious way! Classic heavy metal gets no better than this! Two important words - MUST-BUY!

NEVERMORE - THE OBSIDIAN CONSPIRACY (GOLD DISC)

Authentically licensed 2010 classic album released on Century Media Features two hard to find bonus tracks Production by former Soilwork guitarist Peter Wichers With the coveted Brutal Planet GoldMax Deluxe CD reissue treatment Elite 2022 Remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound Gold Disc CD to discourage disc rot and add beauty and elegance Every CD comes with a deluxe foil-stamped collector's card of Nevermore Expanded 12-page insert with lyrics and additional band pics Gold Disc border on the front cover - but the back of the booklet features the front cover with no Gold border around the edges Booklet write-up by esteemed heavy metal music critic, Martin Popoff! Nevermore has always held a special place in the metal community with both fans and other bands alike looking up to and respecting them. It isn't hard to see why they command this level of respect, with world-class guitarist Jeff Loomis and vocalist extraordinaire Warrel Dane both calling Nevermore home. Because of this high profile and superb talent, a lot is expected from Nevermore and for the most part, album to album, Nevermore have consistently delivered the goods. Therefore, the arrival of a new slab of metal from these guys is always a pretty big deal and after waiting five years since The Godless Endeavor, we finally got The Obsidian Conspiracy. Right off the bat it becomes obvious The Obsidian Conspiracy is a bit of a departure for Nevermore. While the trademark Nevermore elements are all still present, long-time fans may notice this is less complex and more accessible than The Godless Endeavor and other older works. Now, before diehard Nevermore fans get their panties in a bunch and jump out a window, this is still classic Nevermore and a very technical album with some very heavy moments. Additionally, this is far from some pop metal album. When I say accessible, I mean in the context of past Nevermore albums, which could be very dense and heavily technical and require patience to get into. Perhaps the added accessibility comes from a growing maturity as songwriters or maybe some of it bled over from Dane's solo album. Whatever the cause, the result is a collection of well crafted songs which ebb and flow very well from mood to mood. The 2022 Brutal Planet Records GoldMax CD remaster includes two hard-to-find bonus tracks (and a foil-stamped Ltd band Collector Card) along with an expanded booklet with lyrics and band pics!

NO LOVE LOST - BLISS

No Love Lost is back with their sophomore release. One that doesn't just prove the argument that a band can outshine a strong debut, but sets the bar and achieves a level up. This is more than an album. This is a call back to a beloved genre and sound. Showing that in the year 2020 a band can make an arena rock record with all the trimmings just like how you remembered it. While adding the bonus of today's technology and production. Produced by Ty Sims and Erik "Desmond Childish" Johnson, No Love Lost creates the perfect love letter for this genre of music. Hard hitting when it needs to be. Heartfelt when it wants to be, and just damn FUN because it should be. Scott Board is without a doubt a premier vocalist and should be mentioned in the same breath with some legends. As he is a rare breed that has a level of talent that rivals some of the best in the business. Combine his signature distinctive vocal with the dual guitar team of Jason Staton and Marc Brown, the result is an astonishing winning combination of Rock N Roll as one would hope for, but sadly rarely seen these days. Of course, you need a foundation and you need to keep the beat. None better than the rhythm section of fellow North Carolina Natives, than Matt Crow (Bass) and Jason Collins (Drums) Will leave no question to how formidable they are at their craft. When you hear the big floor tom hits on Heartstrings, to the nice smooth bottom of No Secret. You will have no questions about their prowess as a rhythm section. Lastly, and certainly far from least. No Love Lost welcomes a legend himself, Paul Shortino. As he duets with the band on the rock n roll classic, Good Times (made famous by INXS and Jimmy Barnes). If there was a song that was synonymous with Fun, it is this one, and the guys do not disappoint! All of this is pulled together by the masterful production leadership of Ty Sims and Erik Johnson . Culminating into one simple word that describes this album, and that is the apt title itself, "B L I S S" #DontMissBLISS

ONE BAD PIG - A CHRISTIAN BANNED

A rare collectible. This album by those fun and lovable punk thrash unit One Bad Pig is a six-song, self-produced independent demo from 1986. What we got here is the Pig in the raw, with three songs that found their way onto future Pig releases, and three that were left on "A Christian Banned" (until, of course, their resurrection on the best-of disc, "The Quintessential One Bad Pig"). Here"s the song line-up: "6," which morphed into "Isaiah 6" for their debut "Smash." and is basically the dialogue between Isaiah and the Lord found in Isaiah chapter six; "Sleepin" With The World", an early example of the Pig"s talent for making their songs mini sermons; "Make Me Burn", also an example of the emphasis One Bad Pig makes on praise and worship; "Blow And Go", which found a second life on "Smash" as well; "Anarchy Is Prison", later known as "Godarchy" on, once again, "Smash"; and "Life"s A Bomb," showcasing an early lean toward alternative shown on later albums "Swine Flew" and "I Scream Sunday." Good demo from a great band. And highly collectible.

ONE BAD PIG - LOVE YOU TO DEATH

After a studio recording hiatus of a quarter century, One Bad Pig has come back strong. It turns out these rock veterans have stayed in touch with one another, playing the occasional one-off gig, having plenty left in the tank and still with something to say. Combined with the equal importance of musical talent to bring to the table, Love You to Death is 15 songs of relevance, energy and full-on rock! The Austin-based band's fifth studio album is an impressive group of styles, equal parts punk, rock and metal. There's plenty to like here, from the pop punk-ish "Teenage Royalty," the old school medley of "Sunday School Rawk" and the dirty metal of "Get Your Hands Dirty." (The former even features a lead vocal trade-off between Bloodgood's Les Carlsen and Carey "Kosher" Womack.) The title track comes in fast with an incessant riff, snapping snare and a declaration of love in the face of disbelief and skepticism. Veterans of Christian rock will no doubt dig the pumped up cover of the 77s classic, "The Lust, the Flesh, the Eyes and the Pride of Life." It's a fun take and turns the chorus into an Irish pub sing-along, complete with the ubiquitous chants of, "Hey! Hey! Hey!" A must have new release from Christian music's most relentless swine monikered punk/metal band! The 2019 Retroactive Records treats collector's to a 12 page booklet housed in a jewel case with lyrics, write up, and band pics. Yes, it's awesome! The mastering is perfect, so it's the same as the original band issued release

PARADOX - POWER & GLORY

Ruler had just been released at a time when the band was garnering interest from record labels for the first time. R.E.X., Frontline, Intense, Star Song and Word Records contracts were all sitting on the kitchen table waiting to be reviewed. The production of new music was under way. "Meet The King" and "Just Want To Love You" were real barn burners with a furious message of fidelity to God and in our relationships to one another. The message of Power and Glory hit the band hard and fast. It was winter 1987, and Christmas was just around the corner. On the morning of December 8th, we were struck with a message from which would forever test and change the destiny of what would become a paradox of its own. John Vidaurri had tragically died in an accident. At We just didn't expect it, but we knew that John had a vision to bring us together and he would have wanted us to finish it. Power and Glory took on a new meaning for the band in 1988 when the decision was given to stay together and to move forward with the mark of a higher calling, to press on. The band started to receive condolence letters from the record companies basically stating concern and reneging on the contract offers previously sent. In short, they were worried how the loss was going to affect the writing ability of the band, so they pulled back the offers they had sent. "When in our weakness we were made strong through Him, that who ever believeth in me even though he should die will have eternal life." The hope of all glory is to one day be able to see each other once again! A "Sweet Reunion!" "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." To see the power and the glory of God, we offer the commitment and the passion and now the patience it took to finally dedicate this release to John Vidaurri. John had a vision that allowed Paradox to believe in this ministry, that through our the music, the band could worship God with power and glory and let the world know of God's goodness! Here you go with this album officially released on CD and Vinyl for the very first time in history! The album features the original five tracks, but 4 exclusive bonus tracks, all digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and layouts by Scott Waters of NoLifeTilMetal. Vinyl comes with a black polylined sleeve, hype sticker, 180 gram vinyl, write-ups from vocalist Manny Castillo and Doug Van Pelt. The CD comes with a 12 page booklet packed full of awesomeness! Over 30 years later, this classic album finally gets the deluxe treatment it deserves, and collector's crave. Limited edition pressing - be sure to get your copies while you can!

PARADOX - RULER

Music critics might argue as to what city should be labeled "the heavy metal capitol of the world." Hollywood, London, New York, San Francisco, Tampa. The debate goes on. If you ask touring metal bands, though, there is a consensus that this title should belong to none other than San Antonio, Texas. Citizens of this Central Texas city love their heavy metal and especially their fist-pumping, screaming and yelling loud hard rock concerts. This is the city where Paradox was born. In 1987, they burst upon the scene with this 8-song album-on-cassette called Ruler. It introduced the metal world to the shredding, soloing and controlled feedback of lead guitarist Fernando Hernandez. He was backed by rhythm guitarist and heart of the band, John Vidaurri, who was also the busiest member. He and his wife, Liz, would book the gigs, procure the fashion, the makeup and all that went with making a band look metal. Liz was the official band photographer, and she also would help with their hair and choreograph their onstage moves. Brothers Galicia provided the backbone of the rhythm section. Bassist Phil Galicia III added great background vocals, played some keyboards and even handled the artwork for the band. His little brother, Efrain, played drums like a madman, swirled his hair around like Tommy Lee, and was still in high school during this exciting time for the band. Manuel Castillo was the band's frontman, which spilled over to leading the band spiritually, hosting rehearsals in his garage, preaching from the stage and, in an unusual move for a power metal band, he would whip out the flute for a prog-metal number during their concerts. He mixes the fervor of Keith Green with the showmanship of Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. What other metal singer can you say that about? Sporting long hair, mascara and spandex like the rest of the late 0s metal scene, Paradox mixed the power metal of Iron Maiden, Manowar or Dio with the melodic metal sensibilities of a Stryper, Queensryche or even Kiss. The riffs pulsate with a musical muscle workout while the giant hooks grab the listener by the throat and almost force them to sing along. One thing that cannot be lost on this band is the lyrics. No matter what side of the God or church fence you find yourself on, Paradox has powerful, bold lyrics that match the passion of a revivalist preacher and the theology of a pastor. Tunes like "We Are the Temple" and "Ruler" were worship songs at full volume. "Last Race," "Long Live the King" and "Stand Up for Jesus" were pastoral anthems for believing metalheads. The latter even name dropped Stryper and Bloodgood. How cool is that? "Can't You See" and "You Must be Saved" were pleas to the unconverted to come to Jesus. It doesn't get more blunt and in-your-face than that. It's easy (and true) to say that it's a shame Paradox didn't get the international record deal shared by their peers (like Sacred Warrior, Whitecross and Barren Cross enjoyed), but there were thousands of metalheads who did buy the Ruler and Power & Glory albums on cassette. It is those fans who will most appreciate this re-release and re-kindling of the fire that is Paradox (can you say "new material coming soon?"), but those just now discovering the band will no doubt rejoice, too

Bombworks Records is ecstatic to announce in 2020 we are reissuing one of the finest and most important Christian extreme metal albums ever on both CD (Gold Disc) and Double LP Multi-Color Gatefold Vinyl! Given a complete remaster by Bombworks Sound's Rob Colwell, the album sounds better than ever, literally! Exhumed of the Earth is the debut album by Paramaecium, released in 1993. Without any exaggeration, the album is one of the landmarks of both doom metal and Christian metal movements. The band incorporated several classical instrument arrangements on the album, most notably on the 17 minute epic "The Unnatural Conception," where Rosemary Sutton played violin and Judy Hellemons flute. Sutton also did the soprano vocals. The storyline of the album based on the Bible: it begins at the birth of Christ, continues through his resurrection, speaks of the disciples, and ends with Christians coming to life from the dead. Because the biblical references in the lyrics are elegantly written, the album has been often compared to old My Dying Bride. Musically, Exhumed of the Earth is mostly slow-paced doom metal with death metal influences, most notably on the death growl vocals of Andrew Tompkins and on tracks like "Injudicial." Exhumed. would go one to be voted #42 (just ahead of Horde, Vengeance, and Seventh Angel) on Heaven's Metal Magazine's Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All-Time with music critic Jonathan "Doc" Swank saying, "With its release, the Aussie trio of Andrew Tompkins, Jason De Ron and Jayson Sherlock" essentially delivered the most powerful and moving death/doom recording in the history of Christian metal."

TRACKLISTING:  01. THE UNNATURAL CONCEPTION IN TWO PARTS: THE BIRTH AND THE MASSACRE OF INNOCENTS 02. INJUDICIAL 03. THE KILLING 04. UNTOMBED 05. THE VOYAGE OF THE SEVERED 06. HAEMORRHAGE OF HATRED 07. REMOVED OF THE GRAVE

PEEK, DAN - DOER OF THE WORLD

In the '70s, Peek had been one third of one of the most successful bands in the USA, America. They became one of the biggest bands in the USA. Unfortunately the success still left Dan Peek empty inside and his spiritual journey led him to salvation in the late '70s. He left the band and embarked on a solo career, releasing his debut album in 1978. Doer of the Word is his second album released in 1984. One thing is for sure, Peek knows how to pen songs with hooky choruses and gorgeous harmony vocal arrangements. He even persuaded his former band mates in America to add their golden throats to the title cut here which is an absolute classic of melodic pop with an encouraging Christian message. Those catchy pop tunes continue throughout with other highlights including the killer chorus of "Holy Spirit" and the pleasant vibe of "Your Father Loves You". Peek's skill is combining a strong message with a great melody. I'm left reflecting that 20 years later, there are few modern artists who are truly interested in making strongly spiritual music outside the worship genre, which is a shame. If you like west coast harmonies and pop arrangements, there's plenty here to enjoy. For fans of classic America, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, Don Henley, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Seger, The Band, and Van Morrison.

PERPETUAL PARANOIA - BETWEEN THE ALTAR & THE CROSS

Tiago James de Souza was first known as guitarist for the bay area thrash band, Hand of Fire. Dale Thompson was first known as the vocalist for Christian hard rock legends, Bride. They have teamed up for their second album of heavy metal enchantment. We say "enchantment" because this slab-o-metal is more dangerous and packed full of more pure magic than an enchanted forest. Trust us - this one is a maturation of the brilliance of the band's debut, The Reaper. Let's talk about the guitars on this album. They are instantly recognizable as Tiago is a jazz musician with an electric magic wand in his hands - far more than predictable, by-the-numbers heavy metal. Expect occasional soft intros that lead into heavy, driving riffs, along with odd chord progressions and key changes that keep the listener entranced on what's coming next. There are multiple completely memorable solos on this album that take excellent songs to even higher levels. Tiago's guitar work is second to none. As if the album could not get better, Between the Altar and the Cross also features guest axe-men Juninho Afram (Oficina G3 of Brazil), Paul Jackson (Bloodgood), Oz Fox (Stryper) and Troy Thompson (Bride). You will also hear the talent of guest vocalists, JT (Metal Nobre), Les Carlsen (Bloodgood), and Chaz Bond (BioGenesis). The band spared nothing on this album. Dale's vocals are as aggressive as ever - daring, mesmerizing, and leading the listener deeper into the enchanted forest of metal. Be careful - there are fire-breathing dragons in that forest, and we promise Between the Altar and the Cross will take you to places you did not know existed. 12 tracks packaged in an 8 page insert and a jewel cas

PERPETUAL PARANOIA - HELL FEST

Hell Fest is Elite Dark, Thrash Metal featuring Tiago (Hand of Fire/Biogenesis) and Dale Thompson (Bride) - If you were headed to a deserted island and could take only one metal CD with you - this is a bonafide desert island disc! It's that brilliant! Tiago is one of the finest guitarists we have ever heard - wielding his molten metal axe and playing with jazz-inspired skill and precision. Taking no prisoners and leaving behind only mushroom clouds, tank treads, and an arachnid cadaver crawling across the landscape, Hell Fest is dark, heavy and the definition of METAL. Add in the primal screams and vocals of Dale Thompson who seems to only get more accomplished and better with age - and you have one of the finest metal albums 2021 will offer. No band sounds like Perpetual Paranoia - this collection of musicians is creating music others can only hope to emulate, but expect to hear elements of Slayer, Toxic Holocaust, Kreator, Havok, and Celtic Frost. Featuring Michelle Braglia Rodovalho, Carlos Osnaya guitar solo participation. Derek Dorneles on the drums. Joe Moghrabi guitar solo.

POUNDHOUND - MASSIVE GROOVES

What is "psychofunkadelic grungelism?" You'll have to buy this album to find out, and yes, you'll love it! Doug Pinnick, the 12-string bass thunder of the iconic power trio King's X, has laid down an ear-pleasing, foot-stomping, hand-clapping set of tracks on an "electric poundation" of massive bass vibes that'll set your whole house-a-quaking. Pinnick's trademark silk-and-gravel vocals impart a variety of moods to the album, lending a funky gospel voice to songs like "Jangle" and "Shake," a bluesy world-weariness to "Soul" and "Friends," a Hendrix-style otherworldliness to "Red." Pinnick's understated guitar work is masterful (he plays all guitars as well as bass). The driving, crashing drum work of Chad Lyons, Jerry Gaskill, and Shannon Larkin (ex Wrathchild America and Ugly Kid Joe drummer) expand the vibes on this album to a truly massive, glorious wall of sound. Pinnick's innovative, enormously influential career ought by now to have earned him a prime seat in the first rank of African American rockers, right beside Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone. This music is great enough to give him the recognition he deserves. It's up to us fans to get the secret out. This 1998 masterpiece has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and includes the Japan-only bonus track, "Anger," and comes with a 12x12 insert featuring rare band photos and lyrics. Limited to just 200 Black and 200 Random Color - get this treasure while you can!

POUNDHOUND - PINEAPPLESKUNK (GOLD DISC EDITION)

Pineappleskunk is the second solo recording by King's X singer/bassist dUg Pinnick under the name Poundhound. The "pound" referred to is the distinctive bass tuning that Pinnick uses in his recordings, and it is prevalent throughout this album. In fact, expect the bass to melt your face off after only a few majestic thumps. Lest you think Pinnick a one trick pony, he sings, plays all instruments except drums (Jerry Gaskill of King's X), wrote all the songs, arranged, recorded, mixed, and produced the album. This one has everything one would expect from a dUg Pinnick project including down-tuned guitars, bone-crushing bass, beautiful rhythms, funky grooves, hard as nails riffs and dUg's signature vocals. The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster is packaged in jewel case, a 16-page booklet, and the coveted Brutal Planet Records GoldMax treatment that collector's crave for their treasured albums. Oh, and every CD contains a limited edition gold-foil-stamped Collector card!

POWELL, STEVE - REVELATION (THE PARTY'S OVER)

This album will appeal to fans of the psychedelic monstrosity called RAINBOW PROMISE, as Steve Powell is the lead sing of that giant slab of FUZZ guitar. As with solo albums from bands like The Exkursions and Harvest Flight, the solo album is full of rock, but not quite as radical. Yes, there are a handful of softer moments, but the album still features plenty of electric basement vibes - fully in tact! "Freedom" grinds out in a heavy, grungy Larry Norman way, while "Excites Me" lays it down with riffs that can only be described as raw and bluesy - in all the right ways! "I Wanna Live" sure sounds like one of those psychy rural ballads off of Rainbow Promise. Powell goes on to nail several more rural rock tracks, all while playing piano, drums, while providing quality work on rhythm guitar and lead guitar. The man has no limits! All ten tracks are digitally remastered. The CD comes with a four panel insert, while the Vinyl comes in at 140 grams, a quality heavy weight listening experience! For fans of Love Song, Phil Keaggy, early Petra, Larry Norman, Iron Butterfly, The Talbot Brothers, and Rainbow Promise!

PRODIGAL - ELECTRIC EYE (LEGENDS REMASTERED)

Never one's to rest on the accomplishments of their epic 1982 self-titled release, Prodigal surpassed ridiculous expectations for their sophomore effort with 1984's Electric Eye. The album also received national attention for a unique promotional idea: a computer program for a Commodore 64 was mastered into a "stop-groove" at the end of the vinyl record, the first time this had ever been done. The program, if copied to a cassette tape could be loaded via cassette drive into a C-64 computer to reveal graphics, lyrics and a message from the band.

PRODIGAL - PRODIGAL (LEGENDS REMASTERED)

Based in Cincinnati, Prodigal was fully in tune with the sounds and spirit of the late 70's and 80's with the self-titled release of their 1982 debut album on Heartland Records. Fronted by keyboard wiz, Loyd Boldman, Prodigal took their cues from technology driven bands like Styx and DeGarmo & Key (especially the early years), but also showed influences from artists like Steely Dan, Ambrosia, Sweet Comfort Band, and Atlanta Rhythm Section. Long overdue for a reissue, this is the first time the self titled 1982 album is digitally remastered as an individual CD release. The 2018 Retroactive Records reissue features the original album in all it's brilliance plus four exclusive bonus tracks.

RAINBOW PROMISE - RAINBOW PROMISE

One of THE top Christian psychedelic rarities is this custom guitar-based rock monster from the 5-man band, Rainbow Promise with strong west coast vibes that recall the best of Wilson McKinley! The stage is set right from the start with the righteous rocker, "Get Ready," featuring mouth-dropped-to-the-floor sharp dual guitar leads (reminds us of "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones!). "Someone You Need" follows with some of the most insane scorching echoed wah-wah guitar on record anywhere and. "Do You Hear" starts off fast, then adjust to a moodier feel, on par with much of what is on the Christian psych legendary album, "Spirit of Elijah" by Wilson McKinley. The same can be said for both "Prophecy" and "Rebirth," with the latter treating listeners to inspired echoed guitar leads. Track eight is an electrified cover of one of the most iconic Jesus Music tracks of the 70's - "Little Country Church," made popular by Love Song. It's hard to top all this greatness! The band even breaks open a fresh can of pure charm with the delightful country rocker, "Romans 8-28" and the laid back campy "The Joy of the Lord." The album features dynamic drumming and not a single keyboard note to be found anywhere! The homemade cover art is psychedelic perfection, with a depiction of the glorified Son of Man in the midst of seven candlesticks as presented in Revelation 1:12-18. Guitarist and primary song writer, Steve Powell (R.I.P. 2021) also has a 1974 solo album, Revelation (The Party's Over) also available on CD and Vinyl. CDs come with a foil-stamped trading card, packaged in an eight panel insert. Vinyl comes with a 12" insert, and both CD and Vinyl have been remastered to perfection.

RESURRECTION BAND - COLOURS (THE ORIGINALS: VOLUME 1)

Limited to just 500 units! Resurrection Band was the first ever full on hard rock/metal bands to sing about faith in God. Too gritty and real to be courted or comfortable in the 'Christian Music Industry,' they eventually created their own record label (Grrr). Rez lives in the slums of downtown Chicago and every ounce of struggle and reality is poured into their 14+ albums, Colours (1980) being one of the most important and formative. Bone-crunching guitar rock with social and spiritual sensibility, in the 70's and 80's Rez ruled the hearts of people in the church who cared more about being real than being religious. Great music, great lyrics, great artwork, great people. This 2017 Retroactive Records reissue features a full color 4 panel digipak, with all artwork taken from an original gatefold vinyl record! The audio is remastered and the same as the 2005 jewel case reissue on Retroactive. The first of The Originals Series on Retroactive Records, be sure to get Mommy Don't Love Daddy (The Originals: Volume 2) and D.M.Z.

Limited to just 500 units! Originally released in 1982 on Light Records, D.M.Z. offers some of Resurrection Band's most powerful musical testaments. "Military Man" is a blistering opening track sung by Glenn about the loss of a soldier's humanity in the struggle to survive. "White Noise" features Wendy's all-time best raw vocal on a song about the rhetoric of a culture that prioritizes stockpiling arms over feeding children. It begins with a 90 second feedback-drenched guitar solo by Stu Heiss that is Resurrection Band's answer to Van Halen's "Eruption" and is generally considered to constitute the single greatest non-Phil Keaggy guitar moment in Christian rock. "Area 312" is another classic, which is a teenager's lament about the loneliness of the inner city. This 2017 4 panel digipak reissue is limited to 500 copies and features the same remaster that was used on the 2005 Retroactive Records jewel case reissue.

RESURRECTION BAND - MOMMY DON'T LOVE DADDY ANYMORE (THE ORIGINALS

Limited to just 500 units! One of Resurrection Band's best albums in part because no Christian band in 1981 was touching topics like divorce, being disabled, or being dirt poor like Rez. Mommy Don't Love.... deals with many injustices lyrically and musically. It's hard, fast, and bluesy with metal sensibilities. No one rocked like Resurrection Band. Originally released in 1981 on Light Records, the album focuses on relationships. "Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore" offers social commentary on the painful realities of the American culture of divorce. "The Chair" offers a troubling statement of how a person with physical disabilities responds to being a target for social pity. While "The Crossing" describes the self-denial necessary to achieve emotional peace. And as hard hitting as the band is lyrically, they rip just as hard musically. It's because of albums like Mommy. that Resurrection Band offers the very definition of Christian music's "classic rock." This 2017 digipak reissue is limited to 500 copies, using only the original vinyl gatefold to reproduce the stunning artwork, featuring all the original songs and part of the Retroactive Records The Originals (Volume 2) series featuring both Colours and D.M.Z. in all the glory!

Back in '97 REX CARROLL got together with former Lovewar vocalist TIM BUSHONG to create THE BLEED and released an album called "Ouch!". At the coaxing of their label they used silly fake names in their liner notes to purposely obscure the fact that it was them. Unfortunately the poorly marketed album was quickly forgotten and has long been out of print..

Rivera began studying classical guitar and flamenco before discovering the likes of Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker and Malmsteen - incorporating all of those influences in his axe-cellent guitar work. Angelic Warlord reviews describe Rivera's style as "dazzling" and say that he "is a shredder in the truest sense of the word".

SACRED WARRIOR - MASTER'S COMMAND (GOLD DISC)

There's something about yche influenced power metal that makes hard music devotees go weak in the knees. Perhaps it is the high-end, soaring and at times operatic lead vocals not unlike those of revered Queensr che front man Geoff Tate. Maybe it is a technical proclivity rooted in the power metal aesthetic that also suggests of light progressive bearings. It might also be a high level of musicianship found in a guitarist both melodic and searing, intricate double bass drummer, bassist that lays the detailed low-end foundation and keyboardist that underscores but not to a fault. With Sacred Warrior, it is all of the above in light of its dark but sophisticated take on the power metal form. 1989's Master's Command displays the band in better form from a technical perspective, with chops well-honed from time on the road. While backing away from the power metal of their debut, the album is a strong collection of hard rock songs and includes the more melodic tracks "Paradise" and "Beyond the Mountain," which season the heavy sound with catchy hooks and memorable choruses. "The Flood" offers a vocal duet between Parra and Roger Martinez (of Vengeance). The album closes with what most consider to be its highlight, a heavy metal version of the traditional hymn "Holy, Holy, Holy." Few albums could legitimately be the greatest Christian metal album of all-time. Master's Command is a contender to such a lofty throne. It's that good. And, Retroactive Records has done everything possible to make this the ULTIMATE CD reissue of one of the ultimate Christian metal albums ever. The album has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, packaged in a 12-page booklet/jewel case, and comes on an elite Gold Disc CD.

SACRED WARRIOR - WICKED GENERATION

Sacred Warrior's 1990 Wicked Generation is an album with a much darker vibe than previous masterpieces - one which would stir mixed reactions from the fan base. Wicked Generation, while controversial for its darker remains an essential part of the Sacred Warrior story. Certainly, it is the most conceptual album of the four, with many similarities to Operation Mindcrime, but with a positive message. Wicked Generation was the "ministry" album made to reach the those lost and broken - the destitute, depraved and forgotten. Dealing with issues such as child abuse, suicide, dabbling in the demonic and sin in general, these songs have a heavy vibe for sure. If you weren't a Christian back in the 90's, this is the album most likely to make you curious about God. The dark subject matter was accompanied by Parra's haunting vocal delivery, Swift's frenetic and progressive guitar heroics, and Velasquez's percussive snare and tom attacks nicely conveying a sense of battle. The music and the lyrics come together to hammer home a thunderous, sobering metallic attack like the metal world had never experienced, especially in the Christian scene. The 2019 Retroactive Records CD reissue is the second of the Metal Icon Series, and features a 16 page booklet packed with band photos, a write up from Heaven's Metal Magazine's Jonathan "Doc" Swank, lyrics and more! It also features a fresh 2019 remaster by J Powell of Stenhaus and has never, ever sounded better. This is THE definitive reissue of one of Christian metal's most definitive albums. For fans of Iron Maiden, Queensryche, and Crimson Glory!

SAINT - CRIME SCENE EARTH 2.0

Saint is one of a handful of pioneering Christian heavy metal bands that re-grouped after being inactive for some years. After dominating Christian metal in the 80's, they reformed in 1999 and self-released albums in 2004, 2006 and then Crime Scene Earth in 2008. The band signed with Retroactive Records in 2009 and agreed to have the label re-release this 2008 classic. However, this new Retroactive Records version has been re-titled, Crime Scene Earth 2.0, as the album has had many parts completely re-recorded as well as being remixed and remastered. CSE 2.0 also features stunning, all-new artwork by extraordinary artist, Rex Zachary (Liberty N Justice, Tourniquet, Ultimatum), which is far superior to the original release. On the original release, the classic voice of Saint, the immortal golden-throated Josh Kramer, sang on only three tracks. On this re-release, the band had Josh go back and record his Rob Halford-ish vocals on every single track on the album! From the thunderous "Bended Knee" to the stunning cover of the Judas Priest classic "Invader", Josh and Saint ascend to the elite levels of melodic heavy metal! This Heavy Metal classic has never sounded better! *NoLifeTilMetal: "If Saint were to put out a "best of" collection, these songs would easily fit in with their past recordings." *AngelicWarlord: "On Crime Scene Earth, Saint stays true to form by giving us another slab of quality classic metal."

SAINT - TIME'S END (GOLD DISC)

On Heaven's Metal Magazine's Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All-Time, music critic Chris Gatto calls the dark, apocalyptic metal of 1986's Times End, a landmark release. With lyrics like "He wakes in darkness, the stench of burnt flesh fills the air, his chewed up body, the rats are crawling everywhere," these songs became the anthems of a new generation. The artwork had demons rising from the sea and had many questioning if Times End was safe to listen to. The music inside was even more dangerous than the artwork - forceful, technical, filled with crunchy distortion and sinister guitar tones attached to unforgettable hooks. Thankfully, the answer was a definitive NO! Saint was dangerous and unsafe - acknowledging the real presence of evil and darkness in the world, and directing us towards the light. Times End was nothing less than a metallic freight train that came out of nowhere and floored fans left and right. The album is still crushing metal fans daily in 2020, which is why this Retroactive Records reissue offers elite packaging and a fresh remaster from the ground up. This is THE definitive reissue of this classic album - so "Don't miss the end of the world, it's the greatest show on earth, most everybody's got their tickets, and they'll really get their money's worth."

SAINT - TOO LATE FOR LIVING (GOLD DISC)

Coming in at #20 on the Christian Metal Realm's 100 Greatest Christian Metal Albums, Saint's 1988 release of Too Late For Living (Pure Metal Records) put out a beacon for metal fans, "Red alert star craft approaching everybody put on your gear" and metalheads took heed. The band's third release combined powerful, hard driving heavy metal with convicting and engaging apocalyptic lyrics that sounded nothing like what your pastor wanted you listening to! Back in 1988, your mom might be hiding your Whiteheart cassette from you (too rocky, right?), but your sure as heck weren't gonna let her find your Saint cassette! The songs on Too Late became instant life anthems that sustained the souls of angst-ridden, alienated youth across the globe. While much of Christian metal served up a platter of cheesy lyrics, Saint's lyrics were like none other - speaking Good News with confidence and authority - just what we needed. It wasn't long before we were singing every word, to every song - even in our sleep. Too Late found a way into the DNA of Christian metal fans, striking a chord with and meeting the needs of a generation who wondered if anyone understood. With a 2020 fresh remaster from the ground up, and elite packaging we promise this is THE ultimate and definitive reissue for Saint fans. Yes, it's that amazing! So, don't you stop fighting, armor up starpilot!

SAINT - WARRIORS OF THE SON (30TH ANN. EDITION)

The original Saint "Warriors of the Son" EP was recorded in 1984 on an 8-track recorder. Back then there wasn't much Christian metal around, so despite the very thin production, the album saw plenty of spin time on Christian metalhead turntables due to the fact that the songs were still good. However, once the band's follow-up albums were released, the glaring production issues of "Warriors" became more apparent . In 2004, Saint decided to re-record their debut EP as a sort of celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band. With a new cover of the band, the new & improved recording, and the addition of two songs not previously available, the CD became a necessity for this long time Saint fan. The band stayed true to the original songs for the most part, and vocalist Josh Kramer shows he still had "it" after all those years. These familiar songs sound great with modern heavy production. The two new tracks, "Reaper" and "Killers and the Destroyers," were written by Lynch/Mahan in the very early 80's, and round out the album quite nicely. This 2014 30th Anniversary Edition 4 panel digipak is a reissue of the 2004 (re-recorded) Warriors of the Son - digitally remastered by J Powell at Steinhaus, and displaying extravagant new artwork provided by FlyJams. You now have a vastly superior version of this classic album, worthy of repeated listens!

SAVAGE, RANDY (MACHO MAN) - BE A MAN

"Macho Man" Randy Savage was a WWE wrestling superstar with dazzling over-the-top costumes. His signature phrase, "Ohhh yeah!" won over wrestling fans worldwide and eventually was seen in nearly every SlimJim commercial. He even played a wrestler "Bone Saw" McGraw in the 2002 movie, Spider-Man. His music career started in 1993 making his debut WrestleMania: The Album along side of other top wrestlers such as Bret "The Hitman" Hart, A The Undertaker, A Hacksaw Jim Duggan and others.A On October 7, 2003, Savage released his debut rap/hiphop album titledA Be a Man, A which has sold over the years for staggering amounts.A It includes a tribute song to a fellow wrestler "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig who passed earlier that year. It also included the title track "Be a Man" that was aimed right at fellow wrestling icon and former Mega Powers tag-team partner Hulk Hogan. Fortunately, before Savage's death he had the opportunity to bury the hatchet with Hogan after a decade long feud that many thought was just a marketing gimmick. This rap album has been completely remastered and comes in a 6 panel wallet with a LTD collectors card. It includes DJ Kool on the very club-like vibe, "Hit The Floor", the second single which would have been amazing to see live. It also includes Big K, Brian O, Da Raskulls, Inc., Eliott Harris, Shianna Raymona, Mo Blaze and Smokke.

Limited to just 1000 units, grab this treasure while you can! "Merciless, brutal, neurotic, Tourettic, and consistently stunning, Scaterd Few's debut didn't push the boundaries of rock - it annihilated them. Allan Aguirre's vocal delivery was chilling: a wild, unconstrained howl that went from gothic moan to banshee yelp within the space of a single lyric. He sings like a man on fire, wild-eyed and crazy, yelping out each dire prophecy as if every word might be his last. The band's music is equally urgent. Scaterd Few summoned a mad-scientist hybrid of dub, reggae, post-punk, and heavy metal that outshone even visionary avatars like the Pop Group." - Allmusic.com

SILOAM - DYING TO LIVE

2022 dynamic digital remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound 12 page booklet / jewel case with lyrics Originally a 1995 release on Ocean Records. Siloam is a Canadian hard rock band with a musical style and history similar in some respects to Holy Soldier. The group is led by its composer and only constant member, Brian Lutes, who tells a dramatic testimony of becoming a drug addict and a teenage prostitute before finding salvation through Christ. The first incarnation of Siloam was a pop-metal band that somehow got on good terms with the Canadian government and played hundreds of concerts at public schools, where they would deliver a positive "Don't do drugs-Stay in school" message. The group also toured internationally and in their homeland with bands like M÷tley CrŘe, Bon Jovi, and Van Halen and, according to Lutes, they sold some 400,000 units of their first two albums independently while remaining virtually unknown in the official Christian market. HM would be the only Christian publication to pay them any mind, giving favorable reviews to all three albums. Lyrically, Lutes's songs all focus on the dark aspects of life-troubled homes, abuse, and the yearning for love and acceptance. DYING TO LIVE was originally released in 1995, and has been digitally remastered to perfection. Along with the 12 page expanded booklet, this is a collector's dream. For fans of Skid Row, Holy Soldier, Slaughter, Stryper, and Winger!

SILOAM - SWEET DESTINY (LEGENDS REMASTERED)

This is THE big monster smash-hit debut from a band that didn't survive long after the grunge on-slaught! Ottawa, Canada based Siloam is the brainchild of uber-talented drummer, Brian Lutes. Coming out of a real street-wise background, Lutes became a Christian after nearly dying of a drug overdose but went back to the streets in order to work with kids and relate the Gospel to them in a credible way. For naysayers who try and claim Christian hard rock and metal was second-class to mainstream rock like Skid Row, Def Leppard, and Guns-n-Roses we'd like to introduce you to SILOAM! In the words of music critic, Angelic Warlord, "Sweet Destiny flows quite well from front to back in that it includes no filler tracks." Tim Laroche decorates the album with blazing and at times distorted lead guitar work, cutting loose on "Eastern Skies" and "Deceiver" while exhibiting a bluesier side to his playing on "Child Of Mine." Very Oz Fox-esque in style. This is full-on, exceptional, melodic, commercial AOR/metal with massive hooks, killer vocals, and top shelf production. Following the release of Sweet Destiny, Siloam became involved in the "Really Me/Stay In School" rock tour across Canada - which was also part of a Just Say No anti-drug campaign - that featured sponsorship from the likes of McDonald's, Pepsi, major hotel chains, fuel companies and even the Canadian government. Siloam, as a result of this partnership, was able to tour with over a million dollars worth of staging, sound and light gear, taking its message to arenas and stadiums with audiences that literally numbered in the tens of thousands. If you like bands that have that distinct 80's sound along the lines of Stryper, Crystavox, Guardian, and Holy Soldier, then grabbing a copy of Siloam's 1991 debut release is a must!

SIXPENCE NONE THE RICHER - THIS BEAUTIFUL MESS (GOLD DISC)

It's a beautiful piece of heartache. This Beautiful Mess represents all that is worthwhile in art. Somewhere in Matt Slocum's little brain, there was a beautiful experience; something precious and rare - something most of us do not possess. Call it cultural knowledge or enriched intellectuality. Maybe he just has a gene that possesses musical genius. This Beautiful Mess is a conundrum that is powerful, dynamic, and quietly loud (indeed it has its moments of release). There are so many parallels drawn within this masterpiece of music. We get the pain of humanity vs. the love of God, the pain of God's love vs. the pain of our understanding of divine love. Look at the paradox within the title - it continues throughout the album. In a certain light, it teaches us the circumstances in life which one must go through before we realize that life without God is, indeed, a paradox. No amount of soul-searching or humanistic experience or knowledge will ever recover what a lost cause humanity will always be. Which is why, in our mess, things become beautiful - but only if we decide to take the difficult, painful road of faith in God. There are many stories in this album, only you won't hear them. What you will hear is the emotion, the knowledge, the life that was gained as a result of those stories. I don't know what inspired Matt to write a song like "Love, Salvation, the Fear of Death." What I do know is that that mountain of a song is immersed in what I would call a real, deep, and healthy existence. Matt has lived what most of us wish we could simply understand - a life with meaning. That is what This Beautiful Mess reaches to tell us - there is meaning, but you'll have to go through a lot of hell - a lot of mess - before you can look at your life and proclaim "this was good. This was beautiful."

Each release is a Gold Disc and comes with reversible full cover if you prefer not to display the gold border cover. Stryper is the most celebrated Christian rock band there is. Anyone reading this most likely knows the impact that Stryper has had on the scene. From the soaring vocals of Michael Sweet, the guitar attack of Oz Fox to the visual timekeeping (a show all on its own) of Robert Sweet, this band plowed a lot of ground and few would debate their legacy or impact. When the band reunited, the Christian rock community had massive reason to celebrate. Stryper 2.0 was here. Although many thought that Stryper's first album back would be the next To Hell With the Devil or In God We Trust album. What we actually got was something altogether different. Stryper was Reborn. After Reborn dropped in 2005 most were just thrilled for something new, however some had complaints that it wasn't the same ole Stryper. I for one am glad that we aren't still living with Blockbuster, MySpace, AOL, Netzero, Buicks, and flip-phones. I'm glad we've evolved and so should music. In my book, Stryper did it right. They reinvented themselves. Reborn and Murder By Pride are quintessential Stryper history in the making and now in Gold Disc they are the quintessential releases to own.

TABOR, TY - MOONFLOWER LANE

Moonflower Lane is guitarist Ty Tabor's second solo album outside his full-time band, King's X. By making quite a name for himself in hard rock/heavy metal circles over the years, many would expect a full-on metal-guitar-shredding release, but Tabor has always emphasized the importance of melody and songwriting over carefree guitar wanking. Since Tabor handles all the album's singing himself, Moonflower Lane has more of a strong Beatles flavor than your average King's X release (Tabor's voice is similar to John Lennon's at times). Highlights include the hopeful opener "I Do," and the melodic hard rock of "The Island Sea," as well as "I Know Everything" (on which Ty's son plays French horn!), "The Truth," and "Her Palace." Moonflower Lane is full of first-rate Tabor compositions that longtime fans have loved and cherished since it's release in 1998! First time ever on vinyl - and limited to just 400 units - get it while you can in either black or random color! This 1998 masterpiece has been digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, and includes the Japan-only bonus track, "Had to Move," which might be the single greatest bonus track ever! We can't believe it got left off the original issue! Every CD comes with a Ty Tabor foil-stamped trading card that will please the most avid collector. Get this treasure while you can!

TABOR, TY - SAFETY (GOLD DISC EDITION)

Ty Tabor's latest solo album, Safety, was written and recorded over a three-year period. The ten songs chronicle his journey through the end of a "busted marriage." Aside from Jerry Gaskill on drums for most of the tracks and Christian Nesmith providing a few backing vocals, Tabor plays and sings (and produces and mixes and masters) everything on the album. While the material from King's X (Ty's main band) is usually harder and more progressive, Ty's solo music is full of easily palatable pop-rock with catchy melodies and copious amounts of Beatle-derived vocal harmonies. The opening track, "Tulip" is example one with an upbeat acoustic-electric song that bears a strong George Harrison influence. The title track mixes acoustic Zeppelin with Crosby, Stills & Nash vocal harmonies to create a rollicking good tune where Tabor finds some peace during his marital discord. Here Tabor shows he can be at his best when collaborating with others. There are some incredible melodies and vocal harmonies within. And, while the subject content is raw and honest, one would be hard pressed not to find songs which speak to the wounded soul. The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster is packaged in jewel case, a 12-page booklet, and the coveted Brutal Planet GoldMax treatment that collector's crave for their treasured albums. Oh, and every CD contains a limited edition gold-foil-stamped Collector card!

TANGO DOWN - IDENTITY CRISIS

After a lengthy hiatus, former Accept vocalist David Reece has become one of the hardest working musicians in rock. On the follow-up to 2009's Damage Control, Tango Down recruited Reece to replace the departed Alex Barbeiri and welcomed bassist Chris Konys back into the fold. The result is a very satisfying melodic rock album that sounds more like classic Bangalore Choir than that band's current Metaphor release. Identity Crisis is all about over-the-top harmonies and an endless supply of guitar hooks -- not unlike label mates Farcry, partly thanks to the flawless production of Bombay Black's Ty Sims. One thing I noticed right away was how Reece's voice has steered Tango Down into a more melodic direction, simply because he is more of a traditional rock singer than the gruffer Barbeiri. It's not a huge change, as the Tango Down blueprint is still clearly visible, but the slightly mellower direction means the band is a bit more accessible this time around. Of course there is nothing 'mellow' about the opening "Crying To Me", a hard-hitting number that instantly sets the tone with Reece battling the powerful guitar riff for supremacy. "Dream Child" is more of the same before "Blame" slows things down slightly and succeeds with a huge sing-a-long chorus. After a couple of predictable mid-tempo tracks the disc fires up again with the KISS inspired "Hearts Catch Fire". Ending this impressive album is "Magic Pudding", a pulsating rocker that puts one final exclamation point on the whole affair. Identity Crisis is a strange name for this release, because I honestly think Tango Down have finally found their true identity. Hopefully David Reece sticks around long enough to expand on what the New York band have created here, although considering their track record with frontmen I won't hold my breath. For my money this is exactly the type of music Reece's voice is best suited for, and in turn has resulted in the pinnacle of Tango Down's short career thus far.

TOURNIQUET - PATHOGENIC OCULAR DISSONANCE

With 1992's Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance, Tourniquet continued to ascend in both critical acclaim and as artists. The band made it onto Heaven's Metal Magazine's Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All Time for a third time in three albums. Reviewer Chris Beck commented, "Arguably their best album, Tourniquet achieved near perfection from beginning to end with brutally heavy guitars and lyrics." Musically, the album goes for a more aggressive thrash metal direction. The songs are complicated, technical and feature experiments with styles such as jazz, classical, and blues. The album introduced more Slayer-esque shouting vocal patterns by Gary Lenaire as well as a darker atmosphere. Guy Ritter sang less on the album than on previous Tourniquet albums. The 2020 reissue is reloaded with a 16-page insert with loads of never-before-seen band pics, and four exclusive bonus tracks never-before-released (two live tracks and two demo tracks). And, you also get an all-new 2020 remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound which makes this is THE ultimate collector's dream for deluxe reissues! Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted "Favorite Band of the 1990s" and won "Favorite Album of the 1990s." Tourniquet has sold more than 300,000 albums.

TOURNIQUET - PSYCHO SURGERY

With Psycho Surgery, the band went in a more modern, experimental, and technical thrash-metal style, incorporating heavy doses of classical music-influenced guitar riffs, complex tempo changes, and virtuosic guitar solos. One reviewer described the album as "Slayer plays Beethoven...." Vocalist Guy Ritter also abandoned his King Diamond-like high-pitched falsetto in favor of a more melodic baritone register and the band went on to reach a level of popularity worthy of their excessive talent. The title track is the closest thing the group has to a signature song. It opens with the dissonant sounds of an orchestra tuning, then introduces strangely growled vocals beneath a barrage of other sounds. Radical and abrupt time changes, dissonant harmonies, and a melodic vocal chorus all account for the song's initially inaccessible but ultimately mesmerizing appeal. The allegorical lyrics about all sorts of medical practices seem to be about the process of developing a new heart and a new mind. Maybe it was best said by Heaven's Metal reviewer, Chris Gotto, "A timeless slab of gut-wrenching metal, combining the best of technical riffs, progression, speed metal and love of classical music in a way that only these Christian thrash kings can." The 2020 reissue is reloaded with a 16-page insert with loads of never-before-seen band pics, and four exclusive bonus tracks never-before-released (two live tracks and two demo tracks). And, you also get an all-new 2020 remaster by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound which makes this is THE ultimate collector's dream for deluxe reissues!

TOURNIQUET - STOP THE BLEEDING

Few bands have hit the scene with a debut album that was a too-hot-handle bonafide instant classic from the moment it hit the stores. The CMR Top 100 Christian Metal Albums Of All-Time ranks this 1990 debut at #5 of ALL-TIME! And, yes, it is that important and that good! Tourniquet formed in Los Angeles, CA in 1989. The band was founded by Ted Kirkpatrick, Guy Ritter, and Gary Lenaire. Stop the Bleeding is an intoxicating mixture of thrash, progressive, and neo-classical heavy metal that helped the band move light years beyond cliche' and triviality. The song "You Get What You Pray For" was the band's first single and charted quite well. It was a GMA Dove Award nominee for "Metal Recorded Song of the Year" in 1990. The band's groundbreaking and controversial video for "Ark of Suffering," written by drummer Ted Kirkpatrick, a true animal welfare advocate, contains disturbing footage of animals in laboratories and slaughterhouses - received airplay on MTV before the channel ceased airing it after complaints that it was too graphic. Despite MTV's ban, the video won the Christian News Forum Contemporary Christian Music Award for "Rock Video of the Year," and Heaven's Metal magazine readers voted it their "Favorite Video of the Year." Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted "Favorite Band of the 1990s" and won "Favorite Album of the 1990s." Tourniquet has sold more than 300,000 albums.

TRYTAN - CELESTIAL MESSENGER (GOLD DISC)

Let us take you back in time to the 80's. Open the wardrobe and grab your spandex trousers, look in the mirror and get the spray ready to make that hair big! Trust us - just close your eyes and take a super-charged spaceship back to the glory days of hard rock and heavy metal smack-dab in the middle of 1987! The music on Celestial Messenger is exquisite - featuring thundering bass lines, wickedly righteous guitar riffing, and drumming perfection while all being tied together with the silky-sweet Geddy Lee inspired vocals of Lary Dean. One listen to the remastered magic of this classic album and we were instantly hooked just like 30+ years ago when we bought the cassette at our local Christian bookstore! The Rush-inspired synthesizers cannot be overlooked as they continue to be a critical part of Trytan's progressive rock masterpiece that has aged like a fine wine over time. As an added treat, Retroactive Records worked with the band to come up with three must-hear bonus tracks from Trytan demos and wow - wow - and more wow are they progressive rock round-house kicks - one after the other. While they are demo tape tracks, the music is top-shelf elite and the kind of songs you want to listen to repeatedly. Tryan proves this band knows how to balance melody, musicianship, jams, complexity and hooks with progressive rock finesse. The 2021 Gold Disc Remaster is the quintessential CD reissue of this revered classic. This CD reissues comes with the strongest recommendation possible. It is elite in every way and comes with a Trytan foil-stamped trading card. For fans of Kansas, Rush, Balance of Power, Threshold, Jacobs Dream, Veni Domine.

TRYTAN - SYLENTIGER (GOLD DISC)

After their 1987 spacey-prog rock and metal debut, Trytan came roaring back with Sylentiger in 1990 with heavier, proggier, and more mature AOR/Metal. Many thought Sylentiger to be a perfect combination of Rush meets Fates Warning. Thinking-man's metal, Sylentiger has enough ideas to fill a recording twice it's length. Here you'll find Trytan's most complex playing, & Lary Dean really shows us what an all-commanding monster on guitar he really is! Many of his solos are brilliant ascending crescendos of intuitive genius! Dean knows his guitar better than most people know themselves, making his guitar an extension of his soul in a monumental flurry of magnificent notes. Robinson and Dobbs are right behind him, laying down a massive foundation of solidness that will withstand the test of time for Lary Dean's soaring guitars! The combination of the three make an indisputable pinnacle of masterful talent! Turn your stereo up loud & buckle in as the sea of music that lies within Sylentiger is nothing short of a maelstrom of swirling notes. With both musical and lyrical content escalating into an all out assault on the ears & the mind, fans get to experience the fierceness of this remastered tiger like never before! The 30th Anniversary Edition will be reissued as a Gold Disc Edition CD, remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound.

ULTIMATUM - INTO THE PIT

Simply put, the masters of thrash metal nailed it in 2007. Into the Pit qualifies as a juggernaut of North American metal. With Into the Pit, the band unleashed one of thrash metal's most brilliant moments, following in the footsteps of fellow peers Exodus, Vengeance Rising, early Megadeth, Overkill, and Kreator. With its thundering bass, fast drumming and a wealth of Mastodonian rifferry, the boys have clearly learned from their elders, and learned well. Guitarist, Robert Gutierrez fills every track with fiery, blowtorch riffs and scorching solos. Vocalist Scott Waters far exceeds his commendable efforts on previous albums, sounding every bit as brilliant as thrash legend Roger Martinez (Vengeance Rising), while never forsaking his classic Ultimatum vocal style. It's rare to find a band able to progress and mature in their craft so much without changing their sound. If you like your metal fast, heavy, neck snapping, bone crunching, and old school then Into the Pit is your "stranded on a deserted island" disc. Careful though. This stuff is dangerously heavy! We warned you! Really, we did. This is where the heart of metal begins and ends!

ULTIMATUM - LEX MATALIS

ULTIMATUM is a metal band from New Mexico whose sound is a mixture of traditional heavy, power/speed/thrash metal and more modern grooves; brutal guitars, blazing leads, pounding drums, thundering bass and shrill, shrieking vocals. Ultimatum does not claim to follow any trends nor do they wish to do so. Ultimatum is great at writing good, heavy, memorable metal songs and has been doing this since their 1992 beginning! Lex Metalis (Latin for "Metal Is Law") is the band's fifth full-length release and follow up to the destructive metal monstrosity Into The Pit (2007 Retroactive). With Lex Metalis, the band pays tribute to their metal heroes, putting their neck snapping, heart-of-metal stamp on some of the most cherished metal anthems! As always, the band stays true to their metal convictions, playing each song with power, might and authentic conviction. Vocalist (and author of NoLifeTilMetal.com) Scott Waters, shows considerable influence from the likes of David Wayne, Roger Martinez and Blitz Ellsworth (and Cronos and King Fowley on the high, gritty - and sometimes slurred parts). The band's DNA is pure thrash metal and every song has their thrash and speed metal imprint - even the 80's melodic metal tracks! In addition, the eight page booklet contains detailed liner notes explaining why the band chose these songs for this classic release that is destined to appeal to old and new fans! This 10th Anniversary Ultimate Edition includes a 16 page expansive booklet, new liner notes from band members Robert Gutierrez and Scott Waters, a new collage of photos, alternate cover photos, and two new bonus tracks that fans have been requesting for YEARS (Testament and Vengeance Rising), as well as song by song synapses by the entire band!

UNDERCOVER - BRANDED (25TH ANN. EDITION)

Originally release in 1986, few records contain the level of emotional resonance or impact that Undercover's "Branded" did. After the entrance of new vocalist Sim Wilson, the band stepped up their game several notches. Having already begun to shed the earlier pop-punk sounds of their first two albums, the band's fourth studio release showed immense growth and maturity as they shifted toward a layered rock sound, incorporating hard rock, new wave, heavier punk rock, and even gentle pop flourishes. The lyrics became more mature as well, touching on subjects like depression, battling temptation, rejection of God, and even a song about the crucifixion of Christ from the perspective of Pontius Pilate. All in all, perhaps one of the greatest rock albums of the 1980's. Reissued and remastered by Intense Millenium Records in 2011.

VARIOUS - INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION

At Retroactive Records, we are in love with the 90's industrial-metal of bands like Circle of Dust, Brainchild, Klank, Chatterbox, Ministry, and Nine Inch Nails. When we came across the Bumpus Hounds demo, we could hardly contain ourselves. How had this industrial-metal treasure stayed so obscure that none of us had even heard of it? How could music this good have flown completely under our radars for almost 30 years? And, lastly - how could we correct this grave injustice? We found Eric Shirey on Facebook, and found out that there was more than just the infamous Bumpus Hounds - the band went on to produce Primary Censor, Abstain, and Coarse. We scrubbed planet earth and the next six galaxies to find digital and physical copies of the music that ended up on this 2-CD Set called INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION. One band evolved into another band, that evolved into another, etc. Read on to learn the complete story. The Bumpus Hounds was a collaboration between Eric Shirey and Neil "Oatmeal" Thompson from Houston, TX-based death metal band Red Ink. Eric wrote most of the lyrics and provided vocals. Neil wrote and programmed the music and some lyrics. "The Pit Dug for the Wicked" was recorded on a Tascam 4-Track Recorder in the Austin, TX apartment of Noise Priest singer Stephen Wagers (aka Stig Stench) in 1992. Wally Shaw of Deitiphobia and Massivivid produced the EP. He also gave the duo a song he wrote for his side project, Icon Tack, to round out the recording. Shaw did a cameo as his rap persona, MC White E, on the track "Temple." Stephen also did guest vocals on the same song. Eric eeked out his vocals and Neil tracked all the guitars and bass in one weekend. The EP was originally distributed on cassette through mail order and only on blank tapes handmade by Eric or Neil. "Thrown Away (X-Propagation Mix)" was a reworking of the song off The Bumpus Hounds' EP. Originally put together as a sort of template of where Eric Shirey wanted to go musically with his next project, all the programming and keyboards were arranged by Brent Stackhouse of Deitiphobia and X-Propagation based on the original music Neil wrote. It was recorded and produced by Stackhouse in his home studio. There was interest from Michael Knott for his label Blonde Vinyl, but it went under shortly after this was recorded in 1993. Eric wrote a new verse for the song to give it a more positive conclusion at Brent's suggestion. This CD is the first time the song has ever been released to the public. Primary Censor was an award-winning Austin, TX industrial metal band formed by Eric Shirey shortly after the project with Brent Stackhouse fell through. It was made up of drummer Stuart Lillard, guitarist Matt Wright, keyboard programmer and bassist Chris Spoonts, keyboardist Brett Landis, and second drummer Jay No. The band was heavily tied into the burdgeoning Texas Industrial music scene in Austin, which was growing at the time because Al Jourgensen and Ministry had just moved into town. Primary Censor's "Self-Titled" demo is the earliest recordings of the band. It was laid down on a Tascam 4-Track Recorder in one day at Drummer Stuart Lillard's church in Austin, TX. "Festering Wound" was Primary Censor's first real recordings. They were laid down in the home studio of bassist, keyboard programmer, and engineer Chris Spoonts. He had a Pro Tools set up and soundproofed rooms he named Rotate Sound Productions. The results were four tracks that were definitely more guitar-heavy than the band would end up being. Drum sounds and some different samples were taken from the sound library of Auschwitz 46's keyboardist, Jason Janssen. The group's next demo, now known as "Orphic," was really never officially titled. It was recorded at Music Lab, where ex-drummer of SKREW Mark Dufour was an engineer. Dufour took the controls and drums and extra programming were provided by Jim Vollentine, who was the keyboardist for SKREW. What was crafted this time around was a much more even and dynamic blend of metal guitars and the pulsing electro sounds of darkwave and cyberpunk outfits of the time. The last three Primary Censor songs which are presented here for the first time on CD were shopped to R.E.X. Music, who showed interest in the band. Unfortunately, nothing ever transpired. The band broke up shortly after the demos were submitted in 1993. Fast-forward a few years to about 1996 and Eric Shirey and Matt Wright come out of their self-imposed musical exiles to work on two different solo projects. Flaming Fish Records came knocking looking for some new music for their compilation, Full Frontal Lobotomy. Both Eric Shirey and Matt Wright were asked to contribute songs. Eric began work on a track entitled, "Quiet," under the moniker Coarse. Musically, it was a bit more pop-structured. However, it still had an edge thanks to heavy chugging guitar riffs. The keyboards were slightly brighter in sound, thanks to the handiwork of Richie Laxton. Laxton created dance pop more at home with the likes of Erasure or A-ha. Although all the basic music was written by Shirey, Matt Wright was called in to lay down guitar for the recording and Laxton provided all the electronics and drums. Lyrics were written by Shirey and concentrated on his cry for help to God. The song was recorded at Richie's studio, Snooty Fox Productions in Austin, TX. Meanwhile, Matt Wright was working on his own solo project he called Abstain. Abstain was similar in style to Primary Censor and was recorded at his home studio. It's no surprise that the finished songs for Abstain had the same tone as his previous band, since he really provided the trademark "sound" they were known for. Wright began carving out five tracks for an EP and gave one to Flaming Fish for the Full Frontal Lobotomy compilation. Lyrically, his Christian faith was reflected quite heavily. The other demo tracks are being released for the first time to the public on "Industrial Evolution." They're much more experimental and electronic-based, with no lyrics or guitar. Why is this collection of songs from this certain group of artists entitled "Industrial Evolution?" Well, Eric looks at the project as a journey from an angry youth ranting about social and mental issues to an older and wiser young adult who was not only using music as a way to vent, but hopefully to provide answers to someone's problems. Looking back after 20+ years, the music still stands on its own and will no doubt thrill fans of industrial and metal both old and new. Most of the material is still relevant next to what is being released today by artists like Klank, Circle of Dust, Ministry, and the likes. All this to say that hopefully Industrial Evolution will finally make it into the hands of those who always wanted copies of The Bumpus Hounds, Primary Censor, Coarse, or Abstain's music. Sonically, it was all taken off of cassettes which, many times, were over 20 years old and found in the collection of friends who had it stashed away somewhere. None of the members (except Neil Thompson and Chris Spoonts) even had copies of the masters. Hopefully, you can hear through all the aging defects and enjoy the experience.

VENGEANCE RISING - DESTRUCTION COMES

Originally release in 1991. After the dissolution of the original Vengeance Rising line-up, some thought that the Vengeance Rising name would quickly die and become nothing but a footnote in the history of Christian Metal. Those people would find themselves wrong, however, when front-man Roger Martinez soldiered on with a new record, new sound, and new touring band. Destruction Comes was a record long on hyper-fast, intense riffing and short on subtlety. Roger laid it all on the table, blasting his way through 10 tracks of intense thrash that bordered on death metal, with nary a respite moment throughout. Where the previous records were laced with melody and technical prowess, Destruction Comes was all about speed and intensity and the album took no prisoners. Completely remastered by Intense Millenium Records, this CD also includes the music video for "Before the Time."

WHITECROSS - UNVEILED

Whitecross is a Christian Metal band formed and founded by guitar virtuoso Rex Carroll (Fierceheart) in 1985 in Waukegan, IL. He joined forces with Scott Wenzel on vocals and they released their debut self-titled CD "Whitecross" on Pure Metal in 1987. Songs like Enough is Enough, Who Will You Follow, and the popular guitar solo, Nagasake (misspelled by the label) would bring life to the fast growing scene of Christian Rock and Christian Heavy Metal. Their early albums are laced with Carroll's signature neo-classical style shredding and fast, ripping technical guitar work.

WHITECROSS & GUARDIAN - THE GREAT WHITECROSS & GUARDIAN REVIVAL

Whether you call it white metal or Christian rock, the names WHITECROSS and GUARDIAN are well known among fans of those circles, having sold about a million records and completed many worldwide tours between the bands in their heyday. While both groups reached their zenith in the '90s, 2017 brought about a revival of sorts as core members of both bands have formed a new lineup that will record and tour on some of the classic songs from each band. The energized lineup of GUARDIAN + WHITECROSS entered the studio with Rex Carroll at the production helm to record seven tracks for the album titled "Revival", which features new recordings of WHITECROSS and GUARDIAN classics, as well as a few surprises including a Jimi Hendrix cover song. For clarity, Jamie Rowe adds, "Neither the classic lineups of GUARDIAN or WHITECROSS have officially broken up. We're just having fun with this unique pairing. GUARDIAN + WHITECROSS is its own thing. Don't miss it!" Only 300 red vinyl records were pressed, and only 1000 CDs were manufactured. This is a one-time pressing - with no more units ever to be made. Get them while you can before they are commanding collector prices! Seven tracks and 34 minutes of high octane metal that's not to be missed!

WHITERAY - THE COLLECTED WORKS

In the mid 80's to early 90's, Whiteray was an integral part of the hard music scene of Kentucky along with fellow home-staters, Bride! From 1988-1991 the band released four critically acclaimed demos of high quality, elite melodic hard rock and metal. Collectors have been paying over $200 each for those demos if lucky enough to find them. Whiteray was dedicated to the hard rock scene laid down by Bride, Cinderella, Warrant, Motley Crue, and Guns-N-Roses which means big everything....big hooks, big melodies, big riffs, and of course, BIG HAIR! Whiteray was a significant step above other hard rock bands in terms of talent and execution. Fans also loved the fact that in spite of being demo tracks, Whiteray demos are clear, and professional sounding which allows the original magic of those heard rock anthems to shine brightly. The band would later regroup and release an album on R.E.X. Records under the moniker of Killed By Cain (another killer aggressive groove metal release, produced by Dale Thompson of Bride). Until now, the band's legendary demos have been impossible to find. The 2019 Retroactive Records 2-CD reissue features all four demos remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, packaged in a jewel case with an eight page booklet, band photos, and an amazing interview from 1989 featured in Pendragon Magazine! Limited to just 500 CDs.

WORLD AGAINST WORLD - UNTIL THE DAY BREAKS

The only release from this band (formerly known as Spud Gun) is both musically and lyrically apocalyptic. Even the artwork will scare your mom half to death. But they no longer have the dirty punk-rock sound, rather think hardcore ala Scattered Few and The Crucified. The atmosphere is a combination of fuzz heavy bass, guitars in the vein of early Corrosion Of Conformity, and Jason K's plaintive vocals wailing. BulletProof Records released it in 1998 By far it is the scariest and the heaviest thing they ever released. Imagine mutually assured destruction happens ending in nuclear winter...forever. Not for those who doubt that God will judge mankind when He brings this corrupt world order to an end. On a scale of 1 to 100 this one vaporizes the geiger counter. Scripture references are provided in the booklet to back it up.

WORLD WILL BURN, THE - RUINATION

The second release by the infinitely heavy The World Will Burn features iconic metal hero Dale Thompson (BRIDE vocalist) at his best here!. Dale has long been one of the best metal/rock voices (and lyricists) in Christian music, and his work on The World Will Burn's second album (Severity was the debut) will strike you as complex in presentation and ultra creative in delivery. The band ranges from hard hitting to light and soothing, laced with an edge of promise (and consistent delivery) of bursting into flames and render all around them to ashes! Musical genius Alan Zaring supplies all of the music for the album and repeatedly grabs you by the face, and shows you what modern metal should be! Zaring handles the music perfectly here, with the style ranging from crunchy metal, experimental alternative, and always brutal, relentless riffs! The musical style matches perfectly with Thompson's vocals, resulting in the duo delivering a hard, stylized, metal album with something to say. If you like your metal thick, rich, and with depth then look no further cuz you got it with The World Will Burn!

ZAFFIRO, DAVID - SURRENDER ABSOLUTE

Some things really take us by surprise. We just don't see them coming. We don't expect what our eyes actually see, and it makes the experience absolutely mesmerizing - like the moment in Terminator 2 when you realize Arnold Scharzenegger is a Terminator, but the GOOD GUY! Or, the moment when your loved one says, "Go ahead honey - buy them all - we can never have too much music!" Or, the fiery moment the next morning when you remember you ate some hot peppers the night before - uh - well, maybe not that so much, but you get the point! Tantalizing surprises are the spice of life, and boy oh boy does Bloodgood guitarist David Zaffiro give us four elite reasons to be dazzled and delighted with his solo albums. Known for his renown axemanship with the iconic Christian metal band, Bloodgood, Zaffiro treated fans to four of the finest AOR / Hard Rock albums ever released in the Christian rock scene. Indeed, these albums are far from the metallic juggernauts he played on with Bloodgood (their first three albums). But each of these four albums is essential ear candy for even the most discriminating rock music connoisseur. One listen and you realize the padlocks were cut loose from this master guitarist's hands and you have been magically ushered into glorious riffing with feeling, with intensity, with skill and precision. The lyrics are filled with hope, conviction, and transparency - including life lessons and insights free of lectures or preachyness. And, the instrumental tracks remind us of three important words: WOW WOW WOW. Great words, right? The instrumental tracks show Zaffiro with all the skill and talent of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. Yes, it's that good! That brings us to the most tantalizing surprise of all - Zaffiro's vocals! With one of rock and metal's finest vocalists in Les Carlsen leading Bloodgood, we could have never guessed there was a world-class vocalist hiding in Zaffiro's slight frame - but it's absolutely perfect for AOR, rock, and hard rock. These four Zaffiro CD reissues are international treasures with the finest of musicians filling them out from top to bottom. All have been digitally remastered and include eight-page inserts with lyrics packaged in jewel cases. If you slept on these classics in the past, now is the time to make things right - these are top-shelf reissues for collectors who care about quality of packaging and sound. Get all four CD remasters now!

Indeed, these albums are far from the metallic juggernauts he played on with Bloodgood (their first three albums). But each of these four albums is essential ear candy for even the most discriminating rock music connoisseur. One listen and you realize the padlocks were cut loose from this master guitarist's hands and you have been magically ushered into glorious riffing with feeling, with intensity, with skill and precision. The lyrics are filled with hope, conviction, and transparency - including life lessons and insights free of lectures or preachyness. And, the instrumental tracks remind us of three important words: WOW WOW WOW. Great words, right? The instrumental tracks show Zaffiro with all the skill and talent of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. Yes, it's that good! That brings us to the most tantalizing surprise of all - Zaffiro's vocals! With one of rock and metal's finest vocalists in Les Carlsen leading Bloodgood, we could have never guessed there was a world-class vocalist hiding in Zaffiro's slight frame - but it's absolutely perfect for AOR, rock, and hard rock. These four Zaffiro CD reissues are international treasures with the finest of musicians filling them out from top to bottom. All have been digitally remastered and include eight-page inserts with lyrics packaged in jewel cases. If you slept on these classics in the past, now is the time to make things right - these are top-shelf reissues for collectors who care about quality of packaging and sound. Get all four CD remasters now!
