The infamous Christian rock metal band Stryper have come back over the last few years much stronger, and reinvigourated. The last album a couple of years back hinted at surprising impressive songwriting and well crafted solid rock riffs and tunes, which might not really have been expected from a band many just see as a joke. They are still very much passionate Christians, and most of their tunes show their faith and worship, but they really do know how to rock out like many of their own influences. If you love bands like Judas Priest, Kiss, Iron Maiden, you will instantly hear the familiar riffing and structures but there are great original strong tunes here to enjoy. Even non-religious rock/metal fans I am sure will easily respect and deep down enjoy the honestly great rockin' songs, some very really stunning guitar, bass and drum work, and the singer's vocals and at times surprisingly well up there with the likes of Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson. Rock out and be blessed.
