Stryper is a Christian metal band from Orange County, California, USA. Formed in 1983, they are pioneers in the mainstream popularization of Christian metal music. Stryper enjoyed great success during the mid-late 1980s, with one Platinum and two Gold records, before breaking up in 1992 at a time when most metal (especially glam metal) groups of the 1980s were losing popularity. However, the band reunited in 2003 and since have released two new studio albums.
The name "Stryper" derives from the King James Version of Isaiah 53:5:
The scriptural reference is also part of Stryper's logo on most of their releases. (They also incorporate stripes into most of their outfits and their logo.) Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stryper

Saw Stryper at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio. The energy was great. They played a set mixing older songs and new songs. Their instrumental talent is top notch. Michael skirted some of the highest notes earlier in the concert but on the final encore of "To h*ll With The Devil" he hit them all and the fans went crazy! Go see them, you won't be disappointed.
