GUARDIAN - FIRE & LOVE to be reissued on CD and Vinyl!
GUARDIAN - FIRE & LOVE (Retroactive Records) to be reissued on CD (1000 units) and Vinyl (200 Orange/300 black)!
ABOUT THE ALBUM
Fire & Love should come packaged with a rubber mat to prevent your jaw from shattering when it drops to the floor. Response to the album release (1990) was overwhelming, and the video for the song "Power of Love" was included in the MTV's Headbangers Ball rotation. The shredding melodic metal of their previous album is replaced by red-hot, fired-up commercial hard rock that is belted out with emotive power to spare by the awesome Jamie Rowe.
Adding to the album's appeal is the legendary production talents of John & Dino Elefante (Kansas/Mastedon)! If you love big guitars (Palacios rips!), big hooks (Motley Crue would be jealous), big choruses (Bon Jovi would approve), big vocals (can you say wall of sound?), and big production (it's the Elefantes...what else do you need to know?), then you'll love this album, a true Christian hard rock classic.
Fire & Love earned Guardian a well deserved place at the top of the Christian hard rock/hair metal scene, nudging Stryper slightly over to share a bit of the spotlight. At #28 on Top 100 Christian Metal Albums of All Time (2010, HM Magazine), #61 Top 100 Christian Rock Albums of All Time (2010, HM Magazine), #18 on the Christian Metal Realm’s 100 Greatest Christian Metal Albums of all time, and #11 Top Albums of the 90’s by Angelic Warlord Reviews, Fire & Love offers elite Christian metal that still knows how to win the hearts, and touch the lives of fans across the world! Fire & Love has been digitally remastered for this 2017 reissue, further enhancing the pure magic that has been thrilling fans since its release in 1990!
Available on CD and Vinyl! Retroactive pressed 200 Yellow Vinyl, 300 Black Vinyl. All Vinyl releases come housed in a full color jacket with a spine and a color insert with lyrics. The CD release is packaged in a 6 panel jewel case with lyrics and a bonus track featured only on the CD version of the reissue - the track “Take Up Your Cross” previously only available on the Pakaderm Records CD sampler “Portrait of a Spirit”. The CD was mastered by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound and the Vinyl was mastered by J Powell at Steinhaus - we loved them both!
