Stryper - Live at the WhiskeyStryper need no real introduction, or at least very little introduction. They have had a huge influence and impact on the Christian rock and metal scene and without uncertainty can be labelled as one of the leading pioneers of the Christian metal scene.

Stryper are from Orange County, California, and currently the band members stand as Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass guitar), and Robert Sweet (drums). Formed in 1983 as as Roxx Regime, threw band soon changed their musical message to reflect their Christian beliefs, and the band name was also changed to Stryper. They are noted as the first Christian heavy metal band to have gained acceptance in the mainstream.

“Stryper enjoyed their most successful period beginning with the release of To Hell with the Devil, which achieved platinum sales status. Stryper went on to release two more gold albums before breaking up in 1992. In 2003, Stryper came out of retirement for a reunion tour and subsequently signed a multi-album contract with Big3 Records in 2005.” In 2013 they signed a multi-album deal with Frontiers Records, and have released an EP, Second Coming, which includes 14 re-recorded songs from their first three albums and an album, No More Hell to Pay, released on November 5, 2013”. . – Wikipedia Continue reading »
