Stryper
God Damn Evil
Release Date: April 20, 2018
Featured Cover

Star Rating
Note: the title of this album isn't meant to be vulgar. In the context of the title track, the speaker is telling God to condemn evil, which He ultimately will do. Neither God's name nor the word "damn" is used flippantly.


Stryper, remembered as a pioneering Christian "hair" metal band of the 80s, returns with their first new studio album in three years, provocatively titled God Damn Evil. Though Michael Sweet and company generally stay true to their roots, Evil, like their previous two albums (Fallen and No More Hell To Pay), also tips its hat to modern metal. In the blistering opener, "Take it to the Cross," for example, Sweet shows off his retro vibrato vocals while the chorus pays homage to the guttural style of metalcore. The choruses are jarring compared to the standard hair metal verses, mostly because of the unexpected style shift, but after a few listens, it's easier to swallow. Overall it's a good song, though the bombastic choruses may be a little over the top to some...

The first time I saw Jen Ledger perform was in 2008. She was playing one of her first shows with Skillet during their Comatose tour, and the band was making a pretty big deal of her presence. Immediately impressed by her skills as a drummer and vocalist, I thought to myself "she's gonna do a solo project." Now almost exactly a decade later, Ledger announced that she's dropping her first release, simply titled Ledger. Fans of Skillet will indeed enjoy this release, as will any fans of pop rock with an electronic twist (think Fireflight, circa 2013). Ledger is easily accessible, and even retains strong crossover potential.

The six-track album opens with "I'm Not Dead Yet," which also serves as the EP's first single. Its heavy-hitting rhythm, gripping melody, and soaring vocals pair perfectly with the anthemic lyrics: "I'm not dead yet, so watch me burn / go on trying, lying, you're so sure / I may be broken, but I'm not done / I'll go on fighting while there's breath in my lungs."...
