Stryper top XS Rock’s ‘Top 15 Christian Metal Bands of the 80’s’ list
XS Rock‘s senior editor Bobby Caughron (and former Sleaze Roxx writer) recently compiled his Top 15 Christian Metal Bands of the 80’s and not surprisingly, Stryper finished at the top of the list.
XS Rock’s Top 15 Christian Metal Bands of the 80’s:
02. Barren Cross
03. Holy Soldier
10. Sacred Warrior
XS Rock stated as follows about Stryper‘s top spot finish (with a slight edit): “Stryper has to be at the top of this list. Not because I think they’re the best, but because their contribution to Christian metal is the equivalent of Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest in the non-Christian metal world. I never really got the goofy outfits that looked like bumble bees. They are however quality musicians who brought Christian metal to the mainstream in the 1980’s.
Established in southern California in 1983, multi-platinum crossover Christian metal band, Stryper, continues to share their positive message and energetic stage presence with a passionate following throughout the world. Since the band’s inception over 30 years ago, the founding members have stayed true to their deepest convictions, turning from “the ways of the world” and following their hearts instead.”
