Re: Adonai

I think that Adonai should have been more of a rocker and the version uploaded for this thread is a good one :) With regard to the other comments about stopping after Wake Up Call, I personally liked some of what was on No Doubt. However, I agree that if they stopped after WUC and then 'hit us where...

Re: Petra vs Stryper

I guess I got a little confused based on the title of the thread and some of the direction that the thread has taken. Not that it is bad at all; I love reading what others in the family feel and think. With regard to Petra vs. Stryper, I am not sure that there can be any kind of comparison in most c...

Re: Christianity today & More Power to Ya Gold certification

Yeah, it is too bad. It seemed like Christian music was really just swept under the rug until the mainstream decided that it was PC to have Christian music in their circles. Too bad, really.... In the late 80's and 90's I remember all sorts of bands that came and went without much fanfare at all and...

Re: More Power to Ya or Not of this World

My favorite is More Power to Ya. That was my first Petra album that I purchased on my own. It has lots of deep songs and meaning for me. I like NOTW, but not as much as MPTY. I love the recording process story for MPTY as well and I can feel the energy in the album; the raw energy of God in that alb...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

Finding a lead singer would be the hardest I think. Not to only have the person cover John's vocals, but to also do Greg's vocals. Let's also think about Michael W. Smith's vocals, the vocals in Liaison, Whiteheart and so many more.....it is a tall order indeed :) We had two female vocalists to tra...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

I would be more inclined to travel to see a Petra cover band, if someone can play Bob's solos that he doesn't do anymore I am there. Finding a good rock singer like a young John S, Bon Scott, etc could be difficult. I agree with you. For me, it is more than just being able to play the parts that th...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

I go back on forth on this subject. (Greetings all, btw. This is my first post on ThePetraZone.net) On one hand, I still vividly remember the unexpected thrill of seeing Petra as a 17 year old kid who "believed", but who had really joined the Bible Club and went on the trip to see them play because...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

Hi guys! It's been a while since I wrote anything! I'm a reader not a writer! But this topic intrigued me! I was thinking about petra and their plan moving forward. I have always seen petra as a band that stays current. Now, that is not appreciated in many moments, example (Double Take) I dont like...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

Liaison! Now you're singing my tune. Their stuff runs circles around so much of CCM. Incredible writing. I was in a band way back that did exactly what you want to do, minus the secular stuff. We had a couple Liaison tunes in the set. A few Whiteheart and Petra songs, a couple from Michael W., two ...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

Since you are set on creating music that nobody really knows, then find a way to get it in front of them and then motivate them to come to you, why not just do your own music? I have never heard your music, but I am willing to give a paycheck that you could write some music much better than the maj...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

I am not sure that a tribute band would not work per se. Surely we would like to see whatever version of Petra that we most fondly remember but that may never be the case anymore. Having a band that celebrates the music of Petra would be neat because the message was always about Christ, right? If an...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

I'd be interested in singing in a band like this.[/quote]

Where are you located at? I am going to be moving back up to Cedar Rapids, IA in April of this year.

Re: Poll: Jekyll & Hyde (2003)

You know, that brings up a good point. I am a musician myself and mostly release instrumental albums. How does one classify themselves a Christian artist in their music if it is instrumental? I am a Christian but again release mostly instrumental music. Of course, some of my albums have very obvious...

Re: Poll: Jekyll & Hyde (2003)

I sure liked this album, at least the first 5 or six songs. I had no use for the rest of the album. I am not sure that I would call this their heaviest album though.Compare the title song with Mine Field from On Fire! and see the heaviness in both but in different ways. I do miss the keyboards thoug...

Re: Classic Petra Gone?

Maybe it is time to put a tribute band together for CP and do the music from the Volz era? Or maybe even include all of their music? I, for one, would love to be the keyboardist for this type of project. I know almost all of their music from about Never Say Die all the way through No Doubt and even ...
