Double Gatefold Vinyl - 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) and John Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon).
Colours (1980) begins with the powerful Autograph,' which opens with a full two minutes of exciting guitar riffs. The album's title track is an offering of worship that concludes with the poetic refrain, *Whatever one could ask of faith, obedience will give / Together all express the love in hearts where Jesus lives." "N.YC." describes the harsh urban life in the mean streets of Chicago's big sister city, but 'Amazing" expresses wonder at the hope and help God offers those who are metaphorically or literally homeless. "City Streets" and "Beggar in the Alleyway" continue the social consciousness, an attribute of Resurrection Band's albums almost totally absent from other mainstays of Christian music at the time.
Releases in 1981, Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore offers social commentary (on the American culture of divorce), but it does so on an immediate level, by describing one child's description of his family's dysfunction. Yet as powerful as it is, the songs becomes even more chilling to anyone who learns Glenn Kaiser's life story and realizes how autobiographical this detailed scenario is for him. Elevator Music humorously trashes American materialism In other words don't think for a minute you are getting a rock album without substance.
Resurrection Band's release DMZ in 1982 and contains their greatest musical moments with "Military Man" a blistering opening track sung by Glenn about the loss of a soldier's humanity in the struggle to survive. "White Noise" with a ninety-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. D.M.Z. comes in explosive orange/yellow swirl, a transparent red as well as black in a gatefold with band poster.
After the late 80's independent release Dark War by Xalt - the hot shot lineup of the band launched the 90's by signing with PURE METAL RECORDS and releasing the hard rock and heavy metal classic Under the Ruins! Long out-of-print on CD and never released on Vinyl - do not miss this treasure for fans of Judas Priest, Accept, Riot, and Stryper!
The 1995 release of this Barren Cross classic showcases the band's ability to transition from the flashy and slick Elefante bros. production to a sound more raw and less polished - exactly the way metal should be. While the Seattle sounds ruled mainstream airways, Barren cross was mashing METAL in all the right ways!
Originally released in 1991, Deliverance’s third album is a thrash masterpiece along the lines of S.O.D., M.O.D., Sacred Reich, and Death Angel.Coming off of their career high, the group produced a transitional piece. What a Joke reveals a band perfecting its craft, with a cover of Black Sabbath’s “After Forever” remains a highlight, and an ironically noisy rendition of “Silent Night,” a classic novelty.
