Way back when I was newly converted metal head, Neon Cross was one of the 1st tapes I bought to build a budding Christian music collection. The first time I heard them was on California Metal, then I got their full length album. I had it on vinyl for years, (to preserve my vinyl) and finally getting the CD of it. The sound was typical of many LA bands during the 80's, and it was the Christian lyrics that made them stand out a bit. Not that I'm complaining. While most of the early Christian metal bands of the late 80's era were cheezy, this was not one of them.
