DEMON HUNTER – Seattle, by way of Nashville’s DEMON HUNTER have seen their seventh studio album released this past week: Extremist via (Solid State). Still boasting a fiery, melodic and potent wall-of-Metal-sound, DEMON HUNTER ceases to buckle over when it comes to constant and never-ending improvement with their albums; Artificial Light, from Extremist, is one example of this.

The all-encompassing, strong Metal grooves, intensity and inspiring lyrics from this Christian Metal band have always stopped me in my Metal tracks. Below is the official music/lyric video for Artificial Light; turn it up and receive a muscular dosage of Metal from DEMON HUNTER. Metal Be Thy Name.

STRYPER “Second Coming” – STRYPER Revisits Their Classics; A Legendary Compilation

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

STRYPER – Being a lifelong fan of STRYPER, I found it exciting news that this legendary Christian Heavy Metal band was going to release an album of re-recorded hits; with two new studio tracks. I’m even more excited now that I’ve had this entire Summer to enjoy Second Coming (Frontiers Records). This album makes for a definitive collection of STRYPER classics. These are the songs that STRYPER chose to re-record and they have given powerful new life to each one of them!

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always revere the original songs that are represented as re-recordings on Second Coming. Besides, I’ve always found it (gasp) fun when a famous band decides to do a cover song album. With STRYPER covering their own classics, it really doesn’t get any better than this for fans waiting on their forthcoming studio album of original material: No More Hell To Pay (Frontiers Records – On November 5th).

Michael Sweet (guitarist, vocalist) has never sounded better on vocals, on Second Coming. Cliche? Nope. It’s truth for me. Collectively, this album of sixteen songs couldn’t sound any better unless there were thirty-two songs! Guitarist Oz Fox, drummer Robert Sweet and bassist Timothy Gaines all shine once again. Cliche? Nope. It’s reality for me.

The two new studio tracks, Bleeding From Inside Out and Blackened are Heavy Metal gems! If this is the direction STRYPER is going with No More Hell To Pay, then I’m chopping at the bit for November 5th to come! Both of these new and heavy songs signify loud and clear, to me, that STRYPER are proud leaders of Christian Heavy Metal and have so much more to give to their fans!

I now look upon Second Coming as a victorious moment in the illustrious career of STRYPER. Why? This is a band that has survived and thrived, since 1983; overcoming the same hurdles, setbacks, trends and record industry gaffes that any other band from their era has endured. Nevertheless, the strong survive and STRYPER has stood the test of time and persevered, through their quality discography and sensational live concerts.

Second Coming, to me, serves as a powerful musical testament from STRYPER that they have been here all along, are here now and are looking to the future as well. An inspiring, influential and faith-filled Heavy Metal band that has spanned four decades and stuck to their principles. You can’t get any more truer than that; therefore, my sincere admiration for STRYPER is obvious and I’ve (historically) never held that back, here on Metal Odyssey. Metal be thy name.

Iconic Christian Rockers Stryper’s New Studio Album “No More Hell to Pay” Is Due Out In November On Frontiers Records

_____________________________________________

Frontiers Records is proud to announce the release of iconic Christian rockers Stryper’s new studio album, NO MORE HELL TO PAY; the offering has been confirmed for a November 1st release in Europe and November 5th in North America and will be available in two formats – standard CD and deluxe digipak featuring exclusive video content.

Produced by frontman/guitarist Michael Sweet himself, the set features some of Stryper’s strongest and heaviest material ever. Check out below a special video message from Michael Sweet:

Sweet also commented: “NO MORE HELL TO PAY marks our 30 year anniversary and what a journey it has been! It’s our eleventh studio release since our first album in 1984 (THE YELLOW & THE BLACK ATTACK) and it’s quite possibly our best record to date. Why? It’s everything you might expect from a Stryper record – high octane vocals, layered vocal harmonies, guitar solos galore, driving drums and bass and an energy that hasn’t been achieved since our glory days. The message is equally as powerful as it offers hope and inspiration to anyone listening. If you’re a Stryper fan, it’ll make you proud to be one. If you’re not, listen with caution as you may actually become one. We’ve been waving the striped flag for 30 years and we’re proud to say that it’s an honor to still be making music with you and for you. The best is yet to come and it’s coming November 5th!”
