Legendary Christian metal band Stryper released their first music video in over 20 years yesterday for the song "No More Hell to Pay."
View the video here.
The song is the title track of their upcoming album of the same name.
The album will be released on November 5th through Frontiers Records and will be available in two formats on CD and deluxe digipak, which will feature exclusive video content.
The album is produced by frontman and guitarist Michael Sweet, and the new music will feature some of Stryper's strongest and heaviest material to date.
"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," Sweet said in the video.
This past weekend Stryper had their first annual Stryper Fan Weekend in Nashville, Tennessee.
The three-day, 100-fan event, included live performances from Stryper, events, surprise guests, giveaways (including Michael Sweet's Merida C35-OMCES custom guitar,) and all exclusive access from the band.
The weekend was also being filmed for an upcoming documentary to be released on Frontiers Records in 2014.
Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all time, and pioneers in the genre. The original line-up of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass) and Robert Sweet (drums) is returning.
The band has sold roughly eight million records worldwide.
