Facebook link doesn't work, but check out the comments on their latest post today to see the title track lyrics.
"controversial Christian hair metal band famous for the 1986 album"
Digging: VRCVS - VRCVS
Latter day Stryper output has been shockingly good, so I'll be looking out for this.
Also, you can't say they're not controversial. Christians hate them for making metal during the 80's, atheists hate them for being Christian, they existed at just the right frequency to piss just enough people off to be controversial, even if its pretty benign nowadays.
so the whole controversy is that they were making music for literally no one..
No, they were making music that was awesome and just so happen to be about Christianity. I'm honestly amazed they were even mildly popular. Guess great riffs and songwriting can make up for the subject matter (and the fucking ballads that should not exist).
Also, I'm serious, their new albums are pretty kick-ass as they've traded the 80's hair metal for straight up power metal. Just listen to "Yahweh" off the most recent album. It fucking rocks.
mosh with Christ m/
Digging: Foxing - The Albatross
Their last few records, Fallen, in particular, have been pretty great. Definitely amped about this!
Digging: Foxing - Nearer My God
Another 4/20 release. Hmmm
Pretty nice album cover though
Unbelievable. And that cover lol. Sold.
Digging: Tomberlin - At Weddings
Christian power metal in 2018 by Stryper? Yep. Sold.
Tbh I should listen probs to To Hell With the Devil first
God Damn Evil
They guys want to swear on a recording so badly. Fuck!
@RunOfTheMill About half the songs on THWTD rule hard, but their last two albums are probably their best.
So all they did was post the lyrics and not the actual song? lol
Digging: Psychotic Waltz - Bleeding
God damn evil I know
Band will always be one of my biggest guilty pleasures lol
New song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWvdLnP8m3I
Sounds heavy and all, but that chorus is lol. Not one of their better songs.
