"Barnabas was an incredibly revolutionary band. They were the forefathers of Christian speed metal, truly a group way before its time. In every way, lyrically and musically, Barnabas represented true excellence. No matter what price you have to pay, all of these albums are must-haves for any serious Christian music fan. Barnabas rocks, now and forever." - John Duncan
