Petra with Take Me In, a beautiful song declaring our redemption as a Priesthood in Christ.
Petra was started in 1972, and has during 33 years claimed their position as the world's leading Christian rock-band. Since their start, thay have sold more than 7 million records, released 20 albums, won 4 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards and been inducted to Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Hard Rock Cafe, as the first Christian band. We're talking about a highly experienced live-band, they have played no less than 1800 concert5s! Or in average more than one concert each week since they started in 1972!!!
Petra is the Greek word for rock, in other words a fitting name. Their music has developed through the years, but they still have their own dstinctive, recognizable style. From their first album in 1972 and up to the mid-90's they developed a more reocked sound, followed by a few more calm albums in the late 90's.But in 2003 they released "Jekyll & Hyde", the heaviest, most rocked Petra album ever.
For Petra, the ministry has always remained their focus.The music is merely a way to spread the good news. "I am truly thankful for having been part of Petra," says lead singer John Schlitt. "We've had a good long run and have seen so much. We've seen God's hand at work in our music on every continent and in every language,"
Petra will release a live-CD and DVD titled "Petra Farewell" during the "Farewell Tour".The release is set to 22/11, and both Greg X Volz, singer from 1977-1986, and John Lawry, keyboard player from 1984-1994, will give their guest appearance on the recording. We hope and believe Petra bring the new record along for sale when they visit Norway for the last time.
TAKE ME IN
