“As a reaction to the growing Satanism in Europe in the 80′s, Jerusalem made the record Dancing On The Head Of The Serpent in 1987. On the sleeve there was an army boot trampling on a demon. This shocked the Christian community. The record stores sold the record under the counter, but the record made #1 on the American radio charts with a following Dove Award nominee. In 2015 the AngelicWarlord.com website selected Dancing On The Head Of The Serpent at #44 on their list of the top 50 Christian Metal Albums Of All-Time, saying “My favorite of the early Jerusalem albums, DOTHOTS highlights straight on metal and hard rock that showcase the distinct vocals of Ulf Christiansson. Lyrics can best be described as inspired, particularly on the musical Book Of Proverbs that is “Listen To Me”. Unlike their first four studio albums, Dancing 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. The 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! We will say the European version is “dirtier” 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 re-issue treatment. For fans of Kiss, Van Halen, Daniel Band, Dokken and The Scorpions.″ -Retroactive Records
