Re: Christian songs and their secular counterparts

I've heard people say that "I Am On The Rock" sounds like "Pour Some Sugar On Me", but I honestly don't hear it. Besides being anthemic rock, they're really not that similar.

Re: Remastered albums

Here's a cover I made for the cassette version of CITAS:

It makes it visually distinct when I'm scrolling through an album list on my digital music player.

I also made a cover for my DVD audio rip:

Re: Christian bands & their secular counterparts

To me, early Petra sounds like Journey, and later Petra sounds like Def Leppard. Petra still has their own sound, of course, but the similarities are certainly there. In fact, Louie's drumming style and technique reminds me a lot of Journey's Steve Smith. It's like they had the same drum instructor....

Re: TUOSS - New Christimas Single

Great to hear new music by them. John still sounds good. Hope they release a new album sometime Yes, I would love a new album from these guys. John Schlitt announced that they would have a new album by 2021. The year hasn"t ended yet! Depends on what he meant by "we'll have a new album". Perhaps th...

Re: Remastered albums

My peronal remasters of the first two albums and CITAS, (from cassette) , have been done with the same software and sound pretty darn good too. Is this still available from some where? I'd love to get a good, clean version of the cassette cut of this concert. I have the CD and DVD version but no lo...

Re: Remastered albums

The two formerly 'missing' tracks on the 'Washes Whiter Than' remaster appear to have been sourced from vinyl. Listen carefully and you can hear the odd giveaway. In fact, the pops and flutters match exactly with the WAV files of those songs, that I uploaded to this very forum a couple of years ago...

Re: Classic Petra Resurrection LIVE! (Again)

Very cool, I would like to have gone I just don't have the time. Does anyone have the song set list? Anyone else think Greg sounds like Steve Perry a little, or in the same class of singer? Perry's voice had more "soul" to it, a bit of a rasp that gave him a unique sound. Volz's voice is very smoot...

Re: Remastered albums

Been listening to the "classic" albums, which is to say the original CD releases, and I have say, they sound extraordinarily good on the right equipment. I have a FiiO M11 digital music player that I listen to using Sony MDR-7506 studio quality headphones, and I hear absolutely nothing to complain a...

Re: The Jesus Music movie trailer

Stryper has repeatedly stated they were not Petra listeners. They did not come up through the ccm labels, or venues. Instead they took the more standard approach and their biggest influence is probably Van Halen. Maybe some Boston or Thin Lizzy, but certainly not Petra. Heck, they still pretty much...

Re: Classic Petra Resurrection LIVE! (Again)

Who is in this line-up? Edit: Ah, never mind, this is just CPR. I didn't realize they were also known as "Classic Petra Resurrection". Honestly, it's still hard for me to think of any group as Petra if Bob Hartman isn't playing lead guitar. Agreed, but I enjoyed them much more than say the PP2/ God...

Re: Remastered albums

Various outlets have reported over the past few years that vinyl has been outselling CDs, but what they usually mean is that vinyl is out earning CDs. It’s possible that the number of vinyl units might have exceeded CDs last year, but the information put out to the news media is a little clouded. V...

Re: Remastered albums

I have compared two albums, lining up the first gen CD releases with the remastered. This process is kind of boring, but, I had to do some gain matching to be able to invert polarity of the remastered tracks so I could hear what is going on. Basically, the remasters are about 4dB hotter +/-, and th...
