1 - ALLIES - ALLIES - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!).

2 - ALLIES - VIRTUES - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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 ledhim 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 Andra? 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.

4 - BARNABAS - FEEL THE FIRE - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Prelude 02. The Dream 03. Breathless Wonderment (the Dream Becomes Real 04. Hearts 05. Feel The Fire 06. Northern Lights 07. Follow You Up 08. Suite For The Souls Of Our Enemies (part I -

6 - BARNABAS - HEAR THE LIGHT - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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. 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!

7 - BARNABAS - LITTLE FOXES - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Gospel Maniac 02. Little Foxes 03. Destroy After Use 04. Auschwitz '87 05. China White 06. Sins Of The Fathers 07. All Alone 08. Suite For The Souls Of Our Enemies (part Two

8 - BARREN CROSS - ATOMIC ARENA - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Imaginary Music 02. Killers Of The Unborn 03. In The Eye Of The Fire 04. Terrorist Child 05. Close To The Edge 06. Dead Lock 07. Cultic Regimes 08. Heaven Or Nothing 09. King Of Kings 10. Living Dead

9 - BARREN CROSS - HOTTER THAN HELL - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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."

10 - BARREN CROSS - RATTLE YOUR CAGE - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. Rattle Your Cage 02. Here I Am 03. Unsuspecting 04. No Time To Run 05. Sick 06. Somewhere Far Away 07. Feed The Fire 08. Let It Go Let It Die 09. Time For Love 10. J.r.m. 11. Your Will 12. Midnight Son

11 - BARREN CROSS - STATE OF CONTROL - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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!

TRACKLISTING: 01. State Of Control 02. Out Of Time 03. Cryin' Over You 04. A Face In The Dark 05. The Stage Of Intensity 06. Hard Lies 07. Inner War 08. Love At Full Volume 09. Bigotry Man (who Are You) 10. Two Thousand Years 11. Your Love Gives (bonus Track Exclusive) 12. Escape In The Night (bonus Track Exclusive)

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


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!

20 - BRIDE - INTO THE MATRIX (1983-84) - (CD) 
RETROACTIVE


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.
