151 - TOURNIQUET - PSYCHO SURGERY - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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 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.

153 - TOURNIQUET - STOP THE BLEEDING - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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. For fans of Dream Theater, Rush, Kansas, Spock's Beard, and The Neal Morse Band.

156 - TRYTAN - CELESTIAL MESSENGER (GOLD DISC) - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

157 - TRYTAN - SYLENTIGER (GOLD DISC) - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

158 - ULTIMATUM - INTO THE PIT - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. One For All 02. Exonarate 03. Deathwish 04. Blood Covenant 05. Heart Of Metal 06. Wrathchild (iron Maiden Cover) 07. Transgressor 08. Blink 09. Blind Faith 10. Into The Pit (instrumental) 11. Game Over 12. Once For All (demo Bonus Track) 13. Exonerate (scratch Bonus Track) 14. Transgressor (scratch Bonus Track) 15. Blood Covenant (alternate Guitar Solo, Bonus 16. Game Over (alternate Mix Bonus Track) 17. Into The Pit (alternate Mix, Bonus Track)

161 - ULTIMATUM - SYMPHONIC EXTREMITIES - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


Symphonic Extremities is a feast of true metal that could satisfy the biggest appetite.? The opening track has such blazing fast guitar that one reviewer suggested that "the dudes hand would've fallen off."? Steve Trujillo and Robert Gutierrez handle the guitar work throughout the album with incredible ability and technicality. Tons of ripping, squealing guitar solos just accentuate their abilities. Vocally, Ultimatum is very original. Scott Waters provides somewhat high pitched, yet still very abrasive and angry, these vocals fit so well to the songs it's shocking. ?For crunchy thrash/speed metal in the vein of Exodus, Flotsam and Jetsam, Slayer, and Megadeth, Sacred Reich, and Sacrament, look no further

162 - VARIOUS - DALLAS COWBOYS CHRISTMAS - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

163 - VARIOUS - INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

164 - VISION - MOUNTAIN IN THE SKY - (LP) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

169 - WHITERAY - THE COLLECTED WORKS - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

170 - WORLD WILL BURN, THE - RUINATION - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Love To Hate 02. We All Die Alone 03. Welcome To The Freakshow 04. King For A Day 05. Burn 06. Time 07. Nothing At All 08. Child Of Tomorrow 09. What Comes Around 10. All Things 11. Torment (remix) 12. Why (remix)

171 - XALT - DARK WAR - (LP) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ariel 02. The Cross 03. God In A Box 04. Where Victory Storms 05. Angry Fire 06. Ready For The Fight 07. A Warrior's Honour 08. Looking Down A Loaded Gun 09. Palace Daydream 10. Soldiers In The Mist 11. Dark War

174 - ZAFFIRO, DAVID - SURRENDER ABSOLUTE - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!
