“Prior to Christian music’s mid 80s flirtation with spandex, big hair and highly oscillated shrieks, there were still a few bands mining the tradition of heavy 70s classic rock. The New York male foursome Stronghold certainly do so on this early 1982 release and they do so with honors. Originally releasing on the Tunesmith label (home to Servant and Barnabas), there is a dark, doomy feel throughout with pounding sledgehammer riffs, typically slow and grungy, crawling along like Black Sabbath (‘Barabbas’, ‘No Superstars For Jesus’, ‘Nobody Owes You Nothing’), but also some Jethro Tull-ish hard rock (‘Stronghold’) as well as strutting metal ala early Judas Priest (‘Desert Walker’, ‘The Call’). According to Christian music historian Ken Scott, “This is a real bone-crunchin’ mama.” This 2012 Born Twice Records 6-panel digipak, Stronghold – Fortress Rock: Legends Remastered Volume Six gives new life to this rare classic hard rock monster now on CD for the very first time! This is a must-have find for fans of Daniel Band, Barnabas, Black Sabbath, Messiah and great classic metal!″ -Born Twice Records
