STRYPER picture
Stryper is a Christian glam metal band from Orange County, California. The group's lineup consists of Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass guitar), and Robert Sweet (drums). In 2004, Gaines left the band and was replaced by Tracy Ferrie (bass guitar) but rejoined in 2009. Formed in 1983 as Roxx Regime, the band would soon change their musical message to reflect their Christian beliefs, and the band's name was also changed to Stryper. They would go on to become the first overtly Christian heavy metal band to gain acceptance in the mainstream. In 1983, they signed with major label Enigma Records and released their debut album The Yellow and Black Attack. In the mid-1980s, Stryper enjoyed their most successful period beginning with the release of To Hell with the Devil, which achieved Platinum sales status. Stryper would go on to release two more Gold albums read more...

STRYPER 7: The Best Of Stryper

Boxset / Compilation · 2003 · Glam Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
OK, i admit it. There has been a barrage of postings on Facebook regarding US politics in this 2016 election season and a frequent visitor to my screen is the claim that Ted Cruz is actually the singer of STRYPER (as well as the grandpa from the 60s TV series The Munsters but that’s another story). Well lo and behold the similarities are striking but more importantly it reminded me that i have been wanting to check this band out for eons. BTW the band’s name came for the King James Version of the Bible. A reference to Isaiah 53:5.

The truth is i’ve only heard one album “To Hell With The Devil” and although i wasn’t totally blown away, was impressed enough with the good catchy metal songwriting even if the lyrics bordered on ludicrous and the over-the-top vocal style was a hair scratcher even for glam metal but what the hey. Check them out i did. I figured what better way to give these yellow and black Jesus freaks a chance than with a compilation that spans their career just to figure out if i want to dig deeper into their discography. Well, after a couple spins i would have to give a firm resounding negative to that sentiment.

STRYPER originally formed in 1983 under the Roxx Regime moniker but soon changed their name to express their Christian faith. They came from the conservative enclave of Orange County, CA just south of L.A.. and to date have released a total of 11 studio albums with this compilation 7: THE BEST OF STYPER covering their first six albums that ranged from 1985-90. The band reformed in 2005 and has released an additional six albums.

One of the strange things about this album is that it doesn’t start the tracks from oldest to newest but rather starts with two unreleased tracks and then goes backwards beginning with 1990’s “Against The Law,” the album where the band decided to flip the middle finger to Christian themes and suddenly tried to cop a bad ass image which backfired big time essentially ending the band’s successful trajectory even before grunge derailed the whole glam thing altogether.

The first two tracks which were unreleased are rather bland and insipid and a throwback to the most run-of-the-mill glam metal of the 80s. The three tracks from “Against The Law” are equally bland with a boring ballad “Lady” and the pitiful attempt to cover the classic funk and soul song “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire. “All For One” is a bit better but this is pretty standard glam metal for the day and finds STRYPER treading water.

The two tracks from “In God We Trust” are much better. The title track and “Always There For You” find the band at the pinnacle of their song writing skills. They have honed their sound, the lyrics are not as naive and the vocals aren’t as goofy. I think i actually like these two tracks the best save the high pitched screams and Robert Sweet’s incessant lazy drumming skills. I think the band could have been much better with a more competent drummer.

My next favorite tracks come from the only album i’ve heard from them “To Hell With The Devil.” This is a title that cracks me up big time. I mean telling the devil to go to hell is like telling a whore to go to a whorehouse or a Christian to go to church. Silly! Good melody though. Same with “Free” and “The Way.” Their big top 40 hit “Honestly” is a bit much on the sappy side though and a clear attempt to cash in on the hairspray ballads of the late 80s. This album was the most successful going double platinum in the US.

The most metal of the tracks comes from their first two albums when they were trying to emulate Queensryche or Judas Priest. “Soldiers Under Command” was a great anthem for Christians who were suddenly given the green light to join the world of “naughty music” and found the band in its most energetic and uncompromising mode but even on the first two albums STRYPER was simply following the trend and not adding much to it in terms of creative musicality.

I dunno. There are aspects of STRYPER i do like. They clearly could write some crunchy catchy riffs and their hooks are one of their strongest attributes. I have absolutely no problem with their Christian views as i am attracted to music before lyrical content but STRYPER was clearly disciples of the time and never broke out of the glam metal norms of the day. Everything is totally predictable and i do seem to have a problem with vocalist Michael Sweet’s goofy yelps and high pitched screeches. The whole thing is a fun little romp through the 80s but after sampling snippets of their career laid out in this discography leaves me little motivating factor to pursue their actual albums although i’m quite aware that “Best Of’s” never really do a band justice. Oh well, this one is more than enough.

If you’re into Christian metal than there is much better product out there. I really love the un-black metal of Horde and have even got on board with other Christian theme bands such as King’s X, Savior Machine and Tourniquet but STRYPER is a little too saccharin for my tastes but it does have nice cheese factor which i do appreciate for a good laugh now and again. There’s enough good stuff here to warrant 3 stars.

STRYPER never cease to amaze me and their musicianship is as tight as they were in the 80s and Michael's voice seems to be consistently great in the upper range. This new album is incredible but a pity there are still a few weaker tracks that prevent this from scoring into 90% region. The first track, 'Revelation', honestly didn't impress me much but still a good track, while 'No More Hell To Pay' is a big winner. This one is the second best track after 'Te Amo' which is the 10/10 for me, a very classic style that's close to 'IGWT'. 'Sticks and Stones' started with a great verse and even better chorus, this is the third best track here!

The cover, 'Jesus Is Just Alright', is actually pretty good but getting boring in the middle and 'Marching Into Battle' was intense but lacking of memorable hooks. 'Renewed' is a spectacular heavy metal closer and the rest are spread between 8 to 8.75. 'Saved By Love' is an amazing showcase of Michael's sensational vocal, that guy nailed it big!

Production is maybe around 8/10, and musicianship is no doubt should be around 9 or 10. Replay value is around 8.5 and all in all based on around two-three spins, this is around 85% and maybe climb more with further spins

I can say that "Murder By Pride" is truly a homage to the fans. Michael Sweet opened up his ears after harsh critics landed on them on the comeback album, "Reborn", for being too modern and departed quite far from their origin. "Murder By Pride", without leaving the idealism and passion for evolving, ambitiously recreated the classic atmosphere that was told by Sweet as an album with lots of melodies, lots of screams, and lots of guitars. Michael Sweet was responsible for the whole songwriting process and kudos for him for keeping the fire burning.

"Eclipse For The Son" decently opens the album, a safe uptempo passage, I can hear a mix of Stryper's classic with some newer element, pretty solid kicker but "4 Leaf Clover" is the real mood pumper. This track is heavy, modern, but still your ears can easily recognize the Stryper's pattern from the rhythm. Up next is Boston's classic, "Peace of Mind", a fun cover track with Tom Scholz contributing some guitars, I like this song. "Alive" is a great power ballad, the title track has a powerful punchy chorus and already became a concert regular, "I Believe" is a good contemporary track and probably you'll agree with me when I say Michael Sweet listened to a lot of Creed when he wrote this song. "Love Is Why" is another sparkling gem and "My Love (I'll Always Show)" is such a beautiful midtempo track, closing the album with style. Out of twelve songs, perhaps only "Mercy Over Blame" and "Everything" which I think are decent fillers.

While I don't think "Reborn" is disastrously ugly, "Murder By Pride" is a real contender to the strong release of "To Hell With The Devil" and "In God With Trust" that earned them fame and fortune. Like I said earlier, this is tribute pay to the long-time fans, and I would say, the hunger was fulfilled. I'm just hoping that this isn't their peak yet and Sweet and the gang will continue to deliver ultra high-quality releases in the future. Highly recommended !

If the prior album, "To Hell With The Devil", shown Stryper in its heavy form, "In God We Trust" was changed to a more radio-friendly pop-metal based album. Original bassist, Tim Gaines, also left the band after "Devil" and didn't play on this album, however he rejoined the team while they're on tour. The change of direction in this album infuriated many fans that still wanting them to stick to the true heavy metal side and not being commercial, but in my opinion, "In God We Trust" is still as strong as ever, couple of weak tracks, but overall a solid album. The furious riffs, the ultra scream, the guitar duel, the harmonic background chant, they're all still there.

The anthemic title track is still a great sign of the idealistic Stryper, an uptempo marching chorus with Sweet/Fox's fantastic alternating solos. "The Writings On The Wall" has a darker edge and a nice chorus, this one is an underrated classic. "Always There For You" and "The World of You And I" are couple mid-tempo commercial-driven melodic rock. "I Believe In You" is a wonderful short piano ballad with Michael Sweet's beautiful tenor vocal. "Come To The Everlife" is the weakest link of the album I guess.

"In God We Trust" isn't as bad as it seems, in fact, it's pretty much enjoyable if you can accept a commercial blending inside a heavy metal piece. This is the last album with the same style before they went on a different direction in "Against The Law" and I still consider this as one of their strongest catalogue to date.

Bottomline : The God's soldiers still hold the ground!

Murder By Pride finds Stryper returning to their finest of forms:rocking with the passion and clarity that God had told them too!In all seriousness,this is the band's finest effort since 1986's To Hell With The Devil.It's just too bad that this record is actually only made up of one half of the band's original personnel,being that original bassist Tim gaines had been replaced by Tracy Ferrie(White Cross,Guardian) and drummer Kenny Aronoff(Bob Seger,John Mellencamp,Elton John,Jon Bon Jovi,etc.,etc.)fills the big shoes (and drums)left vacant by Michael sweet's inimitable brother Robert.Even without its original fab four in place,this album sails straight up to the heaven's with its sonic perfection! Michael Sweet had said in interviews,at the time of writing and recording of Murder by Pride,that he would make his fans proud with an album that the people demanded of him.Michael certainly delivered the goods.Murder By Pride does exactly what it should,exactly where and when it should.ECLIPSE OF THE SON and 4 LEAF CLOVER will make you rock...hard.PEACE OF MIND will make you sing along.I BELIEVE will make you(want to)cry.The album's title cut will get you tapping your toes and throwing your hands in the air.This album,plain and simply,features song after song of harmony-laden power and crunch,the likes of which hadn't been heard in the hard rock community for many years.And,once again,Stryper's rendition of the Boston classic PEACE OF MIND?Nothing short of sheer perfection!This track,in itself,proves exactly why Tom Scholz hand-picked Michael to fill the shoes of the dearly departed Brad delp in his band.This boy can sing like no other! Whether you're a believer or not,this album will make you believe in the power that is Stryper!
