Your favorite releases of 1991....

Post by Soldier777 on Sat Jun 04, 2016 9:58 pm

What CDs/albums you have in your collection ranging from Christian rock to Christian metal and what are your favorites...

In my collection I have...

Petra: Unseen Power - Many were disappointed with this one as a follow up to Beyond Belief. I liked this album and it has some killer tracks like Destiny, Sight Unseen, Dance, I'll Pray for You, I need to Hear From You and Hey World.

Halo: Heaven Calling - their last and second album was a tad mellower than the hard rockin self titled debut. However, the song writing on this one to me seem better than their debut.

Idle Cure: Inside Out - this is my least favorite of their albums but still has its moments.

Rez: Civil Rites - There was nothing really wrong with this album, I just couldn't get into it as much as Innocent Blood and Reach of Love - I liked these albums much better. However, it has the awesome opener track Lovespeak and favorite tracks are Comatose, Players, Hotfootin, In my Room and Somebody to Love.

Stryper: Can't Stop The Rock - even though this was a compilation released in the summer of 1991, the future of Stryper at this point was uncertain. Egnima records went bankrupt and one of the owners was hired by Disney owned Hollywood Records. Stryper signed on to the new record company and their back catalogue was rereleased under the label. Can't Stop the Rock was released under Hollywood as well. It contains 2 killer new tracks, 10 tracks from previous albums and a neat foldout poster with a brief history of the band. It also has a list of their 5 previous albums and a list of their singles.

Guardian: Fire and Love - This is my favorite Guardian album. Most of the songs are good. Favorites: Power of Love, Fire of Love and The Rain.

Lovelife: Goodbye Lady Jane - if you like glam metal with a Skid Rowe/Faster pussycat sound, then look no further. They changed their name to Fear Not and unfortunately released only 1 album under each name and later broke up.

Siloam: Sweet Destiny - great debut from a band founded by drummer and Canadian Brian Lutes. This album tackles some dark issues like the homeless in Decent Souls and the conflict in the middle east in Eastern Skies.

X-Sinner: One of my favorite albums from one of my favorite bands. This album has less the AC/DC sound than Get It and more of a older Def Leppard and Zion sound.

Ken Tamplin: Soul Survivor - this album is a little less metal and more rock/hard rock.

Angelica: Rock, Stock and Barrell - this one and Walkin in Faith are my favorite Angelica albums. I think this one might be my favorite. This album has a neat instrumental rendition of O Canada....O Canada, Our home and native land, True patriot love in all thy sons command, With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free....

Whitecross: In the Kingdom - The first 3 Whitecross albums are my favorite but this one is good too. Songs like Love is Our Weapon and We Know What's Right are great tracks and the ballad In the Kingdom is another stand out track.

Bloodgood: All Stand Together - this album is a little mellower than some of their previous efforts. I'm not sure if it's the way it was mixed because it seems like you could hear classic Dio type of metal like SOS, All Stand Together,  Escape From the Fire and Rounded Are the Rocks - which are all stellar tracks. I think with Les' raspy vocals and less keys and a heavier mix similar to Dangerously close - this would of been a heavier album.

Sacred Warrior: Obsessions: This is my favorite Album from these guys. it's too bad this was their last album for a long time.

Deliverance: What a Joke - call me crazy - this is one of my favorite albums from thes eguys. The trilogy of their first 3 albums are my favorite from them. I went to McDonalds for my daughter and Pseudo Intellectual came on from the Bluetooth from the music on my cell phone - I just love that song. Other great songs are Prophet of Idiocy, What A Joke, After Forever, It's the Beat, JIG, Silent Night, Product of Society and Attack.

What are your favorites of 1991?

Basically one of the 3 best years ever for thrash

Tourniquet's Psychosurgery
Mortification's Self Titled
Deliverance's What A Joke
Vengeance Rising's Destruction Comes
Devastation's Idolatry

Not the band's best releases (for argument's sake) but all amazing thrash releases in the same year, after these releases, all the band's would go in different musical directions

Oh yea, and Bride's Kinetic Faith was this year as well

Not already mentioned:
Believer - Sanity Obscure
Galactic Cowboys - Galactic Cowboys (I like later stuff better, but this is a great start)
Chagall Guevara - Chagall Guevara
Living Sacrifice - Living Sacrifice
One Bad Pig - I Scream Sunday


Forgive me if not all of these were released in 1991: I'm going off what my iTunes says.

Already Mentioned:
Petra - Unseen Power is awesome.  I like Beyond Belief 'better' but I like Unseen Power a whole lot too.
Mortification - Mortification
Tourniquet - Psycho Surgery
Whitecross - In the Kingdom
Sacred Warrior - Obsessions
Bloodgood - All Stand Together (I may be in the minority but I like it)

Guardian - Fire and Love may be my all-time favorite album but I thought it came out in 1990?

Wow...'91 was an awesome year. My favorites are pretty much most of the ones you guys have mentioned. I can't think of anything that hasn't already been mentioned. Did Detritus' "Perpetual Defiance" come out in '91? That was a good one.

Perhaps my favorite year of all time:

"PsychSurgery" by Tourniquet
"Pillars of Humanity" by The Crucified
"Obsessions" by Sacred Warrior
"Get It" by X-Sinner
self titles by Chagall Guevara

An incredible year for Christian hard music.

Living Sacrifice, Seventh Angel and Tourniquet by far. I still listen to these outputs regularly. Seventh Angel has been the basis of my love for metal.

1991 was the year I got into Christian thrash HARD.  I think it was the peak year for metal in general, though, across the board.

Favorites:
Tourniquet - Psychosurgery
Living Sacrifice - s/t
Deliverance - What a Joke
The Crucified - Pillars of Humanity
Mortification - s/t
Betrayal - Renaissance by Death
Galactic Cowboys - s/t

Anthrax - Attack of the Killer B's
Bolt Thrower - War Master
Cathedral - Forest of Equilibrium
Death - Human
Metallica - Black Album
Primus - Sailing the Seas of Cheese
Prong - Prove You Wrong
Sepultura - Arise
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger

Skid Row, Metallica, and GnR all hit #1 on the Billboard charts that year.  It will never be that good again.
