Stryper is another extremely underrated band, and too me are actually the heaviest glam metal band of the 80's ( besides Motley and Skid Row of course).I was introduce to this band when I was 9 years old, my dad thought I would like them because they where Christians yet had a glam metal sound.Most people say To Hell With The Devil is their best work, but I prefer this album to any of their others.The only not so good song on here is "First Love".The highlights include the classic Stryper rocker "The Rock That Makes Me Roll", the 80's hit that never was "(Waiting For) A Love That's Real", and the best song on the whole thing, the heavy metal assault title-track.Michael Sweet's operatic vocals are as great as can be, the combination of Michael's and Oz's guitars are top notch, with Tim and Robert keeping a steady beat and rhythm.A killer metal album with Christian themes.

Standout Track:
"Soldiers Under Command"
6/28 - Def Leppard/Styx/Tesla
8/29 - Rick Springfield/Loverboy/The Romantics
8/30 - Motley Crue
