Continuing a trend that began with their 2013 release, ‘No More Hell To Pay’ is the tenth studio album 

by Stryper and sees the band offering up their heaviest release yet! Opening track (and first single) 

‘Take It To The Cross’ features a guest appearance from Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall, Act Of

Of Defiance) on death growls (yes, death growls), and immediately demonstrates that Michael Sweet

and co have zero intention of mellowing with age.

The next two songs, the brand new single ‘Sorry’ and ‘Lost’, are classic Stryper anthems, but with a 

heaviness and edge that propels the band’s sound into the modern age. The title track proves to be

an instant classic and this glorious song will surely be a staple of the band’s setlist when they tour.

‘You Don’t Even Know Me’ and ‘The Valley’ follow, with the latter being a true example of how heavy

doesn’t have to equate to ‘fast’. Later, ‘Can’t Live Without Your Love’ proves that Sweet can still

write ballad lyrics, while musically taking the form in tasteful new directions.

While only time will tell, ‘God Damn Evil’ may well turn out to be Stryper’s best album yet. As the

Frontiers label said to Michael after he turned in the finished record, “How are you going to top this?”

Fans of the previous two Stryper releases, ‘No More Hell To Pay’ and ‘Fallen’, as well as the band’s

classic early material, will find much to love here as the group continues to push the envelope of

their musical abilities.

Stryper will headline the first day of the fifth edition of the Frontiers Rock Festival on April 28.
