FORMAT VINYL

OUR RATING 90/100


We love the second life of STRYPER and the new EVEN THE DEVIL BELIEVES is another confirm.

A brilliant album with no filler where all sounds great; MICHEAL SWEET drank the elixir of youth, ROBERT SWEET is an again an amazing drummer, surely underrated, OZ FOX is a brilliant guitarist, both technical and inspired, while new entry PERRY RICHARDSON has given fuel and force to band’s sound.

A brilliant album, a good blend of vibes of last years and trademarks of the band.

They start with BLOOD FROM ABOVE, a “metallized” hard rock with a strong production, with embracing riffs and some melody drops; MAKE LOVE GREAT AGAIN is more lilting while LET HIM IN is more squared and rockin’ and shows an 80’s flavour with a contemporary twist.

Again lilting following DO UNTO OTHER while side A of the vinyl is closed by the title track, another ace.

They go on with HOW TO FLY, truly one of our favs, before stronger DIVIDER.

THIS I PRAY starts with vocals and acoustic guitar and it’s another song to remark, with MICHAEL SWEET at highest level and a gorgeous solo.

After INVITATION ONLY, a wider tune, it’s turn for FOR GOD & ROCK’N’ROLL with its awesome bluesy solo.

The last shots which ends in the best way this platter is MIDDLE FINGER MESSIAH, a song with a more rich texture.


TO SUGGEST..IN OUR OPINION ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS CRAZY 2020!!
