Album Notes

Product ID: BTR7790

Prior to Christian music’s mid ‘80s flirtation with spandex, big hair and highly oscillated shrieks, there were still a few bands mining the tradition of heavy ‘70s classic rock. The New York male foursome Stronghold certainly do so on this early 1982 release, and they do so with honors. Originally releasing on the Tunesmith label (home to Servant & Barnabas) there is a dark, doomy feel throughout with pounding sledgehammer riffs, typically slow and grungy, crawling along like Black Sabbath (‘Barabbas’, ‘No Superstars For Jesus’, ‘Nobody Owes You Nothing’), but also some Jethro Tull-ish hard rock (‘Stronghold’) as well as strutting metal ala early Judas Priest (‘Desert Walker’, ‘The Call’). According to Christian music historian, Ken Scott, “This is areal bone-crunchin’ mama.” This 2012 Born Twice Records 6 panel digipak, Stronghold – Fortress Rock: Legends Remastered Volume Six gives new life to this rare classic hard rock monster now on CD for the very first time! This is a must-have find for fans of Daniel Band, Barnabas, Black Sabbath, Messiah, and great classic metal! Be sure to check out Volumes 1-5 from the early Jesus Music Legends Remastered Series – Amaziah, Bill Mason Band, Exkursions, and Mike Johnson!

Still HOLDS strong
I first bought this recording back in 1983 on tape. Wore the tape out & bought it on LP in 1984. A week ago I decided to dig out that LP & copy it to CD. Hadn't heard it in years . . . it still rocks! This release kick's a**. Thanks Stronghold! God bless you! Now I'm going to order the CD!
