Girder Music and Word/Curb Records presents an exciting collaboration, remastered CDs of three iconic Petra albums: "Beyond Belief," "Unseen Power," and "Wake Up Call." Meticulously remastered by the esteemed audio engineer, Rob Colwell and expertly crafted design layouts by the talented Scott Waters, each reissued album is accompanied by limited edition collector cards with 12 page booklets in a jewel case.  While these reissued albums proudly bear the Girder Music Presents hype stickers on their covers, we want to emphasize that this collaboration marks a historic moment, they are not licensed to Girder Records as many of our releases are however this is a true collaboration brought to you through the combined efforts of Girder Music and Word/Curb Records. Rest assured, the Girder Music touch is evident in every aspect, ensuring that the experience of these reissues lives up to the high standards you have come to expect and many have called the Girder treatment. Only 1500 of each of these are available. If you think think they we will be around for some time and you can pick these up later, let me remind you how fast those 300 Whiteheart boxsets sold... in less than 48 hours.  So if that is any indication, these will sell out in possibly 10 days.

Grammy Award™ Best Rock/Contemporary Gospel Album
Dove Award™ Rock Album of The Year, Rock Recorded Song of the Year "Beyond Belief" and Recorded Music Package of the Year.

Beyond Belief was huge, the band's most successful release ever, peaking at No. 1 on the Christian charts and certified Gold by the RIAA. The radio single "Love" shot to the top of the charts and stayed there, becoming Christian radio's biggest hit of that year.

It won the band its first Grammy, in the newly created Best Rock/Contemporary Gospel Album category, as well as Dove awards for Rock Album of the Year, Rock Recorded Song of the Year for the title track, and Recorded Music Packaging of the Year. More historically, the Gospel Music Association for the first time honored a rock band as Group of the Year, as Petra beat contemporary artists in the competition.

The band was at the peak of its popularity, playing to sold-out arenas of fans on yet another nationwide tour. In CCM Magazine's year-end Reader's Choice Awards, the band swept to first place in multiple categories and garnered many votes for pop/rock artist of the year.

The success of Petra Praise opened the door for even greater success than Petra had seen previously. The Christian rock scene had exploded, and the critics of the past decade had largely been silenced. The band went back to the studio to record a hard-hitting album that would be accompanied by a concept movie, in which the characters interact with the band between music videos.

Lyrically, the album focused on the concept of faith implied by the album's title, Beyond Belief, with radio singles entitled "Creed," "Love," and "Prayer," as well as the title track and "I Am on the Rock." Musically, the band embraced a hard rock sound reminiscent of Def Leppard, as described by CCM Magazine: "Petra has certainly moved more and more toward a big, arena rock sound in the past few years, and Beyond Belief is, if not completely Kansas-inspired, certainly on par with some of the best arena rock music around." The band also, for the first time, drew from a handful of local non-accredited artists during the album's recording.

Subtle But Effective

This remaster sounds great! The changes aren't as obvious as some of the other Petra remasters (the very old ones, particularly) - but I found myself enjoying some of the deep tracks that I never was a huge fan of before, hearing musicality that I hadn't noticed in previous listens. We have all of the original releases of Petra's albums, and we're collecting the CDs of all of the re-releases! They're terrific!

Petra Beyond Belief

This album along with other Petra albums is one of my favorites. The way you all are doing theses reissues are absolutely amazing. I’ve bought several of your products and am blown away how you all have continued to treat (my) favorite brand of all times. I will continue to keep buying. Even though I have all of their music on tape record cd or other form of music. It makes me feel like my younger self getting so excited about a new tape coming out. Keep up the great work.
