Stryper

Alas, you Satan loving swallowers of doom and hell fire, the one and only Stryper is here to bring their duotone attack to Santa Fe Station (where?) in the name of saving your soul from ETERNAL DAMNATION!

And you thought Ronnie James Dio (RIP) walking around slaying a 37 foot tall aluminum foil dragon with a flash light taped to a hockey stick was silly? These guys are still preaching the Jeezotruth and throwing out guitar picks, drumsticks, jockstraps and bibles to the loving masses.

Stryper, Saturday May 19th in the Chrome Showroom at Santa Fe Station, fire up Mom's credit card... tickets are on sale now bitches.

Ever since @Chuckmonster pointed out that the Stryper dude sounds like Dennis DeYoung, it's all I hear!

I hope they play that album (Against The Law) where they went all "tough" in its entirety.
Here is a snippet of a review found on all music.com:
And it's hard to imagine Mötley Crüe, Ratt, or Warrant recording a song like "Not That Kind of Guy," which finds Michael Sweet turning down the chance to have casual sex with an attractive woman because he doesn't consider it the moral thing to do.

I was living with my grandparents in Santa Barbara in '85 going to college when a pre-major-label Stryper played (what I think at the time was) the Oxnard Civic Center. Somewhere, I still have their very first six song EP on cassette. (When it was re-released for their national debut, two more songs were added).

Scary to think about how long ago that was. I don't know whether to go see them, or just crank up the memories.

I saw them about 2 years ago...and seriously...I'm an 80's hair metal nut...these guys are amazing live. They even covered an early Van Halen tune. Oz and Michael are some of the best shredders around and they have not lost any of their high range. Robert is one of the most entertaining drummers to watch...I had so much fun at this show...and in case you're wondering...don't expect a church service...just expect a kick-butt hair metal show with silly lyrics. But...actually...weren't most of the lyrics from that era pretty silly?

I will admit I was the king of Contemporary Christian Music through most of the 80's, but Stryper never did much for me. I don't think it was called hair music yet, so I saw them as lightweights. I preferred the hard rockin sounds of Darrell Mansfield, the Rez Band, or Kerry Livgren and AD.
I like to dust off the old LP's occasionally (good luck finding most of that music on cd, or mp3). I think that's the reason I got the vinyl to mp3 turntable. Static pops and all.
