The titans of Christian metal! In the 80s, California’s Stryper ranked among the greatest in melodic metal. Albums like “To Hell With the Devil” (1986) sold millions of copies and songs like “Free”, “Honestly” and “Always There For You” became smash hits on MTV. Consequently, many of Stryper’s fellow Christians claim that the band were not “true” believers. This frustrated the quartet, who gradually switched styles and eventually dissolved. However, history redeemed Stryper’s legacy, and the band reunited permanently in 2003. Their music and lyrics are once more reminiscent of the golden age, and currently Stryper’s third album since the reunion, the cover release “The Covering”, is pending release. Many have yearned for the band to come to SRF, and now they finally will – in their classic original line-up featuring brothers Michael and Robert Sweet (vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), Oz Fox (guitar) and Tim Gaines (bass).
