Stryper - Recording New Album

Heavy metallers Stryper have recently entered the studio and are in the process of recording a brand new album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Frontiers Records.

The band's guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet told Screamer Magazine about the new material: "The song 'God', which is on The Covering; if you took that song along with 'Bleeding From Inside Out' and 'Blackened' [from Second Coming], and you put it on the same album, that's a pretty good indication of where we are going and where we are at right now. But at the same time this album is all its own."

He adds: "Every song has a hooky guitar riff. Everything is in minor keys, so it's a little darker sounding and a little tougher. It's definitely our heaviest record and I think people will be pleasantly surprised."

The band's latest update on Facebook: "Working on lead vocals & guitar solos today. The toughest part is coming up with new ideas. I know they're in there somewhere - looking now."

I am looking forward to this. Of all the glam/heavy metal bands from the 1980's, these guys are putting out the best modern material.

They can still perform very well if the covers album and the re-recorded best of are anything to go by. The three new tracks show promise, hope the rest lives up to this.
Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct
