Stryper release video for new song “The Valley”
Christian heavy metal rockers Stryper have released a video for their new track “The Valley” from their upcoming studio album God Damn Evil, which will be released tomorrow via Frontiers Music Srl.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of God Damn Evil: “And don’t you worry my friend, this album will fulfill all your Stryper cravings. “Lost,” “You Don’t Even Know”, “The Valley,” and “Sea of Thrones” are all songs that you would come to expect from Stryper. I am not saying these are “filler” songs by any means. It is just that they really didn’t go out of their element on these songs. They are all very well written and played songs with layered vocals (“You Don’t Even Know”), blazing solos (“The Valley” and “Lost”), and upbeat guitar riffs (“Sea of Thrones”)….
Vocalist and guitarist, Michael Sweet, proves to us once again how strong and powerful his voice is on this album. One might say, he sounds better than ever. We all can name a few vocalist’s from the ’80s that should hang it up, but for Sweet, it doesn’t sound like that will be any time soon for him. Not only does he have a strong voice, but he has some great guitar licks and solos on this album. Guitarist, Oz Fox, continues to play some of the catchiest riffs and plays perfectly with Sweet on the melodies. Drummer, Robert Sweet, is laying down some of his best work to date. I will be honest and say that I have not paid that much attention to his drumming on the previous albums, but when I listen to God Damn Evil, his drumming really stands out to me. I know he is very talented and an excellent drummer, but his work on this album is truly amazing. Newly recruited bassist, Perry Richardson (previously in Firehouse), did not record the bass tracks for this album, but I am excited to see him perform live with the band and the revitalized energy he brings with him. I read somewhere that John O’Boyle played bass on this album. O’Boyle was also the bass player for Michael Sweet’s solo album One Sided War.”
