Side 1:

  1. God’s Not Dead
  2. Jesus is God
  3. I Love You
  4. Jesus Loves Me

  6. Dear Jesus Prayer

Side 2:

  1. Satan Sucks
  2. Banned
  3. King of Kings, Lord of Lords
  4. Don’t Turn Your Back on Jesus Christ

This is a bit of a mystery tape. All that I have is what you see pictured above. The sound is pretty much straight forward loud and brash street punk. I took a guess at song titles based on what was repeated most in the chorus (“Jesus Loves Me” and “King of Kings, Lord of Lords” are cover songs). I do have another demo called A Promise of Hope by a band called Dead to Sin, but that tape is barely rock. It sounds nothing like this tape. A few people have mentioned a band called Dead to Sin led by Richard Carlstedt of The Israelites. But that other demo has no one named any form of Richard Carlstedt in it. Are there two different bands? Also, the rock Dead to Sin is from Canada, but Crazed Bunnyz from California mention talking to Richard from the other Dead to Sin after a concert. My best guess is that this tape is the California punk band led by Richard Carlstedt, but I could be wrong. Either way, this tape is obviously a practice session and rough around the edges, but the band gets punk rock and puts out some good (practice-level) punk rock.

Missing Information: Song titles, release date, who played on this?
