“Nineteen Eighty Seven is a completely new recording of the original Self-Titled Whitecross. It contains all the original songs except for “Your Mine”, but has 3 additional bonus tracks (including a newly recorded 2015 ripping guitar solo/song “Angel’s Wing” exclusive to this Gold Edition), “Love On The Line” from the Love On The Line EP and a 2005 guitar solo/song by Rex Carroll called “Re:Animate”. This original version also contains four hidden out-take tracks at the end of the disc. That makes a total of seven bonus tracks! In 1987 Whitecross took the Christian metal scene by storm, delivering what would soon become one of the most talked about and highly collectible recordings in the Christian metal market. Scott Wenzel and Rex Carroll created a duo like few before them, breaking ground in the Christian metal scene that opened up the door for a flurry of bands. Often compared to the secular band Ratt, Scott’s vocals were new and fresh in Christian music and Rex’s blazing guitar work put Whitecross on the map for good. Whitecross continued throughout the 80’s and 90’s making music and releasing some 12 recordings with drummer Mike Feighan, as well as many other musicians. Now Rex, Scott and Mike would like to take you back to a time when metal still reigned. Whitecross Nineteen Eighty Seven is a completely new recording of the original Self-Titled Whitecross, but bigger, louder and better than ever. The Gold Edition comes as a 6-panel eco-wallet with enhanced/revised artwork and one new bonus track exclusive to this release. For fans of Ratt, Stryper, Bloodgood and Motley Crue!” -Retroactive Records
