    Before Stryper, Whitecross and Holy Soldier there was a pioneer christian rock band.....Zion! Originating in Sioux Falls South Dakota in 1981 and eventually becoming known nationally as well
    as internationally when the band signed with the east coast label IMAGE RECORDS in 1988. What most people don't know is the fact that after the song "Is It A Crime" from the Thunder From The
    Mountain album was licensed to Myrrh Records (Word) to be used on their "Twelve New Faces" album from which the song ended up dominating christian radio airplay charts, Myrrh began courting Zion, Image Records and David Zaffiro to become Myrrh's first and only metal band and have David as producer. Image and Myrrh could not come to terms however and Myrrh went on to sign Holy
    Soldier and have David Zaffiro produce them instead. The rest is history. Had Image and Myrrh come to an agreement, Holy Soldier probably wouldn't have been signed to Myrrh. It pleases the band to know that they were actually picked first even though a deal could not be made. Zion disbanded in 1992 after enjoying a very successful +11 years of ministry and releasing several EP's and demo's and finally the CD "Thunder From The Mountain" which had five top ten hit singles! 2004 found the boys in the band reuniting in Portland Oregon in August on the 15th year anniversary of the recording sessions of "Thunder". The members are always working
    on new material of various styles and a new CD is now out of a collection of live cuts and rare demo's, and previously unreleased on cd tunes titled "Thrillseeker"! Be sure to be on the lookout for it! Image Records rises from the ashes this year to release X-Sinner's new album World Covered In Blood and re-release "Thunder From The Mountain" which will also be remixed
    & remastered!!
