The Volz-fronted Petra and the Schlitt-fronted Petra might as well be different bands. As much as I enjoy Not of This World ("Grave Robber" is a classic), the heavier rock sound that emerged with Schlitt as the vocalist is far & away my preferred version of the band, with Beyond Belief being their greatest album.

I much prefer John myself, but Back to the Street is BY FAR their best.

I admit I'm not really a fan of the band and I had to consult my archives to see who sung on the albums I like best, which proved to be John Schlitt on 'Beyond Belief' and 'Wake Up Call.'

Those two albums are more of a bore for me. I like This Means War & On Fire and Definitely Back to the Street best

I think I tried them once and it wasn't for me. Not even sure which disc it was. Somebody was selling a christian cd collection and I bought almost all of them. Petra didn't make the cut. I did grab the first 3 Angelica, Shout, Bloodgood, Mass, Guardian, and Saint. Barren Cross too. 

What is their top disc to check out Petra girlie.

Back To The Street!!!!! Then On Fire and This Means War are two of the next best, but it's a tie for which one is better :)

Jon Schlitt is pretty much the man, even though I don't identify with his particular conservative brand of Christianity. Without exposure to his era of Petra as a kid, I probably would have never gotten into vocalists with similar ranges such as Lizzy Borden, Joey Tempest,  Midnight, Bruce Dickinson, Steve Perry, Klaus Meine, Claus Lessman, Bernhard Weiss, and others.

That's cool! For me they were just one of the Christian 80s rock bands I was getting into last spring and summer and they turned out to be my favorite : )

If I think Petra I think John Schlitt, other than seeing a few youtube videos I don't know much about Greg Volz.

I know much more John stuff than I do Greg, but I don't mind him either. John's just better

    • This might be good fun for only 8 euros:   https://sleazeroxx.com/eclipse-to-stream-concert-dubbed-live-from-the-quarantine-on-april-1st/
    • That's not the case in every province. Some provinces, like BC, are still allowing gatherings of up to 50, while NWT has asked all gatherings, regardless of size, be cancelled. Hell, Yukon only declared a state of emergency on the 27th. Each one is dealing with it differently. 
    • The latest Canadian numbers are 7414 cases and 92 deaths which while not great is a lot better than what is happening in the U.S.....the main reason it has not exploded here is that social distancing seems to be working , of course there are fines and possible arrest for groups of more than 5 to make people think responsibly .... of course we still haven't reached the peak yet so it will get worse...the biggest issue here is that we still need to ramp up testing to find out who is actually carrying the virus, we won't get a grip on it until we can isolate everyone who has it.... Australia seems to be doing a better job at dealing with the virus than Canada, their numbers are lower and they have tested more people per capita than almost anyone exept South Korea..... Two things that are irritating me at the moment.... 1. People who went on vacation while this pandemic was ongoing and now are stuck everywhere all over the world especially those on cruises....they are all crying for Canada to come and rescue them and I can't turn on the news without at least one of these idiots whining about being abandoned....fucking morons... 2. All the info in the West about how we don't need and shouldn't be using face masks to avoid getting the virus...what a load of bullshit!...of course we should all be wearing masks to slow the spread...its common sense....Asian countries have been doing this for years whenever their was an issue, heck they need them for pollution in some areas.....the problem here in the West is we weren't prepared for this outbreak despite the fact that is was obviously coming our way since the middle of January and we don't have enough masks for the front line medical staff let alone everyone...so we have to listen to the outright lie that we don't need masks....
    • Yeah I didn't figure many would like it, I figured out who they remind me of, the back and forth between the chick and the dude reminds me of early Berlin
    • Lol, right on, pretty interesting shit, sounds like a lot of paranoia on the part of a certain member, when somebody gets to that point, I'd imagine he doesnt have people jumping to get in
    • I'm already looking at day trips, hikes, and adventures to do around me. My province is larger than a lot of y'all's countries, so there's much to explore. 
    • The beginning of the end of this will see a lot of walls between countries going up and a lot of distrust.  I agree, not much travelling likely to happen this year.  Best get used to holidaying close to home for a while. 
    • Yeah, from memory at least one was underage as well. recall at the time that the band made the announcemnet taht "there were some things that they just counldn't forgive and move on from" or something like that. Created an intrigue to want to know what went on, sad to find out and left a bitter taste.
    • Um, yeah, lol Soz Josh Todd if you read this. Funny thing is Josh Caddy bears the same name as an AFL football player over here. Remember struggling to get info on what happened years ago, because I kept on getting hits on the footballer.
    • An interesting point there, one kind of not thought about much here. We all know how you guys are with your rights to everything. We are the same to a large degree - mini America if you like. But we are also far more open to iur liberties being taken away. Right now, in my state, Victoria, we can only leave the house for 4 reasons - medical attention, food, exercise and work. People are being stopped on the roads and turned around and sent home. Gatherings of more than 2 (TWO) people are subject to $1600 fines. Likely that fines are coming for those out and about for no reason, and the army is being prepared to be called into action. And this shit is working. Our graph is looking pretty good in Australia. Like pretty much every other country, other than a few - Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong, etc, the public have been critical of how everything has been handled. There is no easy way through this, and every countries leaders are learning on the fly and some are making better decisions in better ways than others, but there are a lot of people around complaining that actionw asn't taken earlier. Love to see ecidence of them saying this at the time. Hindsight is great. Chances are that this will be the downfall of Trump, and many other leaders, because traditionally these types of challenging events don't fare well for them. but every government will learn from this. It will be a templaye for how to handle this type of thing again if it happens. In China they still wear masks etc because of bird flu and sars etc Doubt anyone will easily travel outside their countries again this year.
