Stryper: Christian-Metal Kings

Michael Sweet explains what Stryper learned from Judas Priest and Van Halen.

Again, we got flack for it because of this cover album of secular songs. A lot of people in the church freaked out and said, "See? They're not real Christians," or just some of the comments that we read. The fact of the matter is that it really has nothing to do with Christianity.

In my opinion, that's not the problem with this world — a song by Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or whoever it is. There's much bigger and better problems to have to conquer with and sort through.

C: What's your favorite song on the album and why?

Singer Michael Sweet (second from left) says every time you see Stryper, you see Isaiah 53:5.

MS: Oh my God. I'd say one of my favorite songs on that record is probably "Heaven and Hell." I like how that one feels. I like how it melodically sounds. I like how it performs live.

It's a great-structured song, dynamically speaking. It starts and builds and builds, speeds up. It's just really cool how it's written. Definitely "Heaven and Hell."
