Stryper is an act that has came back strong, while still maintaining the same concern for quality and engrossing music that has made them such a lauded band over the course of the last thirty years. The band’s rendition of the Arthur Reid Reynolds class Jesus is Just Alright completely changes the overall sound of the track while keeping the positive message present, providing listeners with the momentu Jesus is Just Alright that they need to move into The One. The One blends deft instrumentation with smart lyrics to create a track that will resound loudly well after No More Hell To Pay ceases. The late-album efforts showcase a band that stays strong throughout; Sticks & Stones and Water into Wine provide a perfect one-two punch, ensuring that listeenrs are on the edges of their seats when the penultimate track Sympathy begins. Sympathy ties together the past and present of Stryper with an absolutely urgent track. The drums, guitars, and vocals unite to make a track that teeters on the edge between gritty and epic. Renewed is the last salvo where Stryper places an emphatic exclamation point on No More Hell To Pay.
No More Hell To Pay can be purchased from a wide variety of Christian music stores, physical CD shops, and online storefronts alike. Visit the Stryper website for more information about the band, member biographies, and a full set of the dates that they have announced for 2014.
