Dancing With Heavy Melodic Boots (30th Anniversary Edition) Everyone who has ever listened to or heard of Jerusalem knows about this album. Praised by many fans as their best collection of studio songs, Dancing On The Head Of The Serpent was, without a doubt, their “breakthrough” release in the United States. To many fans this material is also the most “familiar” set of songs Jerusalem produced because this album was released in Europe/Scandinavia (in English) in 1987 – a tim
Live In U.S.A. By 1985, Jerusalem’s sound had changed. The classic/progressive 70’s rock from the early years had transitioned into a more melodic/pop direction with 1983’s Can’t Stop Us Now.

Jesus Rock-N-Roll! Don’t Be Afraid. When I think of the music from Jerusalem’s 2nd release, not surprisingly titled Volume 2, I think of the second track on the album, “Rock-N-Roll.” This song perfectly epitomized the music (great grooves) and the mission of the band, because these songs are all about rock … and rocking out in the name of Jesus. In essence, Volume 2 was (and remains) the perfect follow-up and companion to Volume 1 because it was more 70’s organ-driven, guitar
Jerusalem’s “Message” Lives On Through The Legacy Of Their Music! Sweden’s Jerusalem is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic Christian pioneer rock bands ever. From their youth in the 70’s they pushed the envelope of what was “acceptable” music for evangelism and Christian worship. Built upon their ground-breaking “classic rock” debut, they forged a career through relevant and engaging rock releases – music that not only reached out to the “unreached,” but which simultane
