92 - LIFESAVERS (MICHAEL KNOTT & LS UNDERGROUND) - HEAVEN HIGH - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


"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!)."

93 - MAD AT THE WORLD - FLOWERS IN THE RAIN - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fearfully And Wonderfully 02. Flowers In The Rain 03. Why 04. Puppet Strings 05. No Mistakes 06. Wait 07. I Don't Wanna Go There 08. Faight Is Perfect Road 09. In My Dream 10. Lovelight In He Midnight 11. This Lie 12. Dancing On Your Grave 13. We Are The Human Race (demo Bonuus Track)

94 - MAD AT THE WORLD - HOPE - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

100 - MINIER - MINIER (EXPANDED & DEMOS) - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

101 - MODEST ATTRACTION - DIVINE LUXURY - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

105 - ONE BAD PIG - LOVE YOU TO DEATH - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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

106 - PARADOX - POWER & GLORY - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

108 - PARADOX - RULER - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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

110 - PEEK, DAN - DOER OF THE WORLD - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Doer Of The Word 02. Holy Spirt 03. Reach Out 04. Everything 05. Your Father Loves You 06. Brotherly Love 07. Redeemer 08. I Believe In Miracles 09. Thank You Lord 10. Power And Glory 11. The Star (bonus Track) 12. One Way (extended Version Bonus Track)

111 - PERPETUAL PARANOIA - BETWEEN THE ALTAR & THE CROSS - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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

112 - PERPETUAL PARANOIA - HELL FEST - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

114 - POWELL, STEVE - REVELATION (THE PARTY IS OVER) - (LP) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Gonna Take A Trip 02. It Doesn't Have To Be 03. Revelation 04. Freedom 05. I Wanna Live 06. Excites Me 07. Excites Me 08. I Love Jesus 09. The King's Lady 10. Come Back Home 11. Psalm 61

RETROACTIVE


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. The 2018 Retroactive Records Legends Remastered Series features the album remastered along with a second CD featuring their 30 minute Electric EyeRadio Special plus four additional bonus tracks, and break out those Commodore 64's....you even get the code!

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.

119 - RAINBOW PROMISE - RAINBOW PROMISE - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.
