Roxx Records in conjunction with The Lead are very proud to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the classic seminal Christian punk album “The Past Behind.”
1988 was a pivotal year for Christian music. The first major wave of metal and punk bands became established, with major label releases from Believer and Vengeance and with the Crucified making their debut at Cornerstone Festival.
In the nascent Christian underground music scene, 1988 was the year of fast-and-loud-rules, no-nonsense, hardcore punk and speed metal crossover thrash. And The Lead were right in the middle of it all with their second appearance at Cornerstone and the major-label release of a re-recorded version of the EP that the band had self-released a year earlier, called The Past Behind, which was released on cassette and vinyl only at that time.
