Petra – Never Say Die – 1981

Never Say Die is the fourth album from Petra.

This album had a few new band members plus a new sound for Petra. It had a much more hard rock sound than their previous releases.

The single was The Coloring Song which I find odd as it stands out as not being in the style of the rest of the album.

Years later the album is remembered for its hard rock sound regardless of the single. Point of trivia, the album cover was the first with Petra’s signature flying guitar.
