Heavy Metal or what you might call “heavenly metal” mainstays Stryper have released their latest single “See No Evil, Hear No Evil” from their upcoming album set for release later this year. The new single follows “Rise To The Call“. This new album release, Produced by front man Michael Sweet, sees the band growing heavier in their sound while also maintaining trademark melodies.
When asked about their latest single “See No Evil, Hear No Evil” Stryper frontman Michael Sweet said:
“See No Evil, Hear No Evil” was, believe it or not, inspired by the health issues that Oz and I have been faced with. Despite our limitations, we were able to deliver an album that is powerful and relevant and “See No Evil, Hear No Evil” is the perfect track to showcase that. We could not be more excited about this album! The best is yet to come.
As they are fond of saying, while Stryper is known for their Christian faith, their decades plus career in Heavy Metal makes them “simply a long-running and well respected heavy metal band with a late-career rebirth”.
With three original members including brothers Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar) and Robert Sweet (drums), Oz Fox (guitar) and newest bandmate,bassist Perry Richardson (formerly of Firehouse), the band has a number of upcoming tour dates.
