Jerusalem – Krigsman – 1981

This is the Swedish version of Jerusalem’s 3rd album. It was very well received and Jerusalem subsequently toured in support of it opening for Resurrection Band and Larry Norman. Many including myself feel that this was their best album and it toped the sales charts for the year. The singles were “Man of the World” and “Constantly Changing” and music videos were produced for both and apparently played on MTV. The stand out song on the album is the 12 minute long “Sodom” was very well received but obviously at that length could not be a single. HM Magazine voted the album #65 in the Top 100 Christian Rock Albums of All-Time though for me it would be a little higher. Strangely Anders Mossberg is credited as Bass player on the English version and Peter Carlsohn is credited on the Swedish version. Their history states that Peter Carlsohn replaced Anders Mossberg for this album. Also Michael Ulvsgärd replacing Klas Anderhell on drums for the supporting tour. The album (English) was re-released in 2018 by Retroactive Records and is an excellent reproduction.
