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

Stryper - Second Coming - promo cover pic!

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.

Stryper - promo band pic - #77 - 2013

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!”

Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all time. Comprised of the original line-up of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass), and Robert Sweet (drums), Stryper has been rocking since 1984, and is responsible for such ’80s metal classic albums as SOLDIERS UNDER COMMAND, TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL, IN GOD WE TRUST and such MTV hit singles/videos as “Calling on You,” “Free,” and “Honestly.”

After a sabbatical for much of the 1990′s, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the band has sold upwards of 8 million records worldwide and are a Dove Award-winner and Grammy nominee. Stryper is the first band to have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously.

STRYPER – Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Legends Are: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in christian heavy metal, christian rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on February 13, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

STRYPER LOGO - LARGE!!

STRYPER – When I think of the band that pioneered Christian Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, STRYPER is number one. Across their catalog of seven studio albums, the words melodic and memorable jump out at me; while their 80′s arena style heaviness never seems to grow stale. After listening to STRYPER after all these years, I’m readily admitting that their inspirational lyrics and vibes never sounded so grand!

STRYPER has proven their Heavy Rock relevancy with Murder By Pride (2009) and The Covering (cover song album from 2011). With a newly inked record deal with Frontiers Records, the future looks even more positive for a band that has been Rocking positive energy into their fans souls… for decades strong.

To celebrate STRYPER being Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day, I have compiled a chronological list of ALL the STRYPER features, album reviews and news that has ever appeared on Metal Odyssey.

FOR TODAY are a Christian Metalcore band (with Hardcore influence) from Sioux City, Iowa that formed back in 2005. Their fourth studio album, Immortal, will be released on March 29th, 2012, via Razor & Tie Records. Immortal will be the band’s debut for Razor & Tie Records, having their prior albums released via Facedown Records.

You can download their new single “Fearless” on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/FTFEARLESS

I bought this Fearless single and I’ll have to admit, it’s one heavy song. A very memorable chorus, along with some punishing drums and face-melting hardcore vocals, combines to make Fearless a dominating sonic experience. Metal be thy name.

IMPENDING DOOM – ‘Baptized In Filth’ Is A Heightened Listen Into Some Absolute Extreme Metal

Posted in christian heavy metal, deathcore, Extreme Metal, extreme metal bands, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on March 7, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

IMPENDING DOOM – Releasing on March 13th, 2012, via eOne Music is Baptized In Filth from Riverside California’s – Impending Doom. Extreme. Extreme Metal. You’re getting a magnitude of Extreme Metal with Impending Doom. This band is not sheepish on keeping the level of intensity atop a colossal barrage of blast beats, searing guitar leads, chunky riffs, quaking bass lines and wrathful vocals. Extreme. Metal.

Does Impending Doom stare down the ominous shadow of redundancy? Sure they do. Their convincing as hell when it comes to playing this fast and furious. I can feel this band’s unrestrained aggression come through quite loud and clear on Baptized In Filth, that is for sure. It takes commitment to write and play Metal this enraged. Hell yes it does. To sing as brutal as Brook Reeves does takes some Metal passion, I myself would begin to choke after singing this way for twenty seconds.

Steering away from labeling Impending Doom with “multiple genre” tags is useless. (Christian Metal and Deathcore can be thrown about). Extreme. Metal. That’s all my fellow Metal brethren need to know. This album accentuates a great deal of positives for this band, these guys have a keen sense for how an album should flow for these songs really do stack-up together fittingly. Their musicianship and obvious energy shows signs of greater things to come and yet Impending Doom have a damn fine album of songs here and now.

_______________________________

One thing Impending Doom should realize is “toning it down” as they did with My Light Unseen, makes sense and adds a stylistic quality about them other than full-throttle. I’d like to hear more of this side to Impending Doom in the future. This song is still hard and heavy, even with its tempo turned down a few notches. I really welcome this sound from Impending Doom, with both clean and Extreme vocals existing together.

Exploring dark themes lyrically and putting the anti-God doctrine on the witness stand, with an obvious unrelenting and aggressive musical identity, Impending Doom has created quite the heightened listen with Baptized In Filth. This being their fourth full-length, I will predict that Impending Doom will be around for many more albums to come. There’s a genuineness in this band’s collective sound that I can appreciate.
