ROSANNA'S RAIDERS- Before & After the Fire 1985-2019 (We Are Raiders 35th Anniversary) DOUBLE CD
Collection of selected studio recordings made from 1996 until 2019, that encapsulate what would be RR's third album, after a long hiatus.
Some of these songs were released previously on Rosanna Palmer's solo albums, self-released in Australia for the Christian worship music market, so a careful pick'n'mix selection was made for all the RR fans out there who never heard these amazing songs. The 2019 song 'I'm Rising" is an exclusive (outside Australia) for this release. Recorded at the time this project was settled, impressively, it's one of their heaviest tracks ever recorded, much in the style of "We are Raiders"!
Speaking of "We are Raiders", that rare 1985 cassette never released on vinyl and only presented as bonus CD in a U.S. reissue from 2007 of their both albums, will be presented on this release too as a bonus second disc, so it will be the first time it is released in Europe.
Rosanna's Raiders were a female fronted Hard Rock power trio formed in the early 80s in Australia similar to Christian Rock bands like Petra, Resurrection Band or even comparable to Christian female fronted melodic Metal/Hard Rock bands Ransom and Arsenal.
After two domestic cassette releases in 1985 and 1986, they have their first international release, "Calling Down Fire", released in 1988 by the Christian Metal/Rock label Pure Metal (Part of Refuge label). Basically the songs were the same ones of "Run The Race" cassette released two years earlier in Australia.
In 1989 they have their second album, "Clothed in Fire," released this time by the Refuge imprint.
In the 90’s, Rosanna, David, and Johno, along with other musicians have continued to record sporadically (Rosanna Palmer and her husband, bass player David Palmer) under the name of Rosanna Palmer. Listening to the new song "I'm Rising", Rosanna's voice still keeps it's power from the past; in fact, we can consider Rosanna Palmer the best female Christian Hard Rock singer and the music style continues to be the melodic Hard Rock/Heavy Metal that you've heard on the 80's albums.
Presented with a 16-page booklet containing lyrics, rare photos, liner notes from David Palmer and remastered sound.
File Under: Melodic Hard Rock, Melodic Metal, Christian Rock.
For fans of: Petra, Rez Band, Arsenal, Ransom.
