ABOUT THE ALBUM
As a reaction to the growing Satanism in Europe of the 80‰Û_s they made the recordåÊDancing on the head of the SerpentåÊin 1987. åÊOn the sleeve there was an army boot, trampling on a demon. This shocked the Christian community. åÊThe record stores sold the record under the counter. But the record made #1 on the American radio charts with a following Dove Award nominee. åÊIn 2015 the AngelicWarlord.com website selectedåÊDancing on the Head of the SerpentåÊ#44 on the list of the top 50 Christian Metal Albums of all time, saying, ‰ÛÏMy favorite of the early Jerusalem albums,åÊDOTHOTSåÊhighlights straight on metal and hard rock that showcase the distinct vocals of Ulf Christiansson. åÊLyrics can best be described as inspired, particularly on musical Book of Proverbs that is ‰ÛÏListen To Me‰۝. åÊ

Unlike their first four studio albums,åÊDancing... was recorded only in English, although there are two different versions. The original version was released in Scandinavia in 1987 on JM Records. In 1988, Refuge Records released a re-recorded and remixed version in the United States, with slightly different artwork. This was also the first Jerusalem album to be released on CD. åÊThe general lyrical theme of the album is "war against Satan", but songs such as "Still" focus on forgiveness and restoration. The 2018 Retroactive Records release is a 2-CD Set featuring one CD of the USA recording and one CD of the European version of the recording. Trust us - there is a huge difference between the two versions and both are awesome! åÊWe will say the European version is ‰ÛÏdirtier‰۝ and several songs feel drier and grittier like classic AC/DC! This Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) Legends Remastered version adds warmth, depth, and sonic clarity to perfection. Retroactive Records has packaged this gem in a jewel case with a 12-page insert featuring band pics and lyrics. Great pains were made to make sure this classic was given the full reissue treatment. For fans of Kiss, Van Halen, Daniel Band, Dokken, and The Scorpions.åÊåÊ
