MICHAEL SWEET – Reborn Again (2021) *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*

Another worldwide exclusive at 0dayrox: MICHAEL SWEET‘s new solo album ”Reborn Again”. This is the original solo album Michael planned in early 2000’s, but ended being a Stryper comeback album after reunite again titled ‘Reborn’, of course, re-recorded by all members.
Says Michael: “After years of requests and a lot of thought, I decided to release the original versions/tracks and add some things that I felt were always missing: guitar solos, high vocal notes, more rhythm guitars, synth parts and an alternate version of “Passion”. The original drums and bass are clean and punchy and Derek & Lou did an outstanding job laying down the foundation. I’ve always wanted everyone to hear what these original versions sound alike”
And they sound great…
The general style on “‘Reborn Again” is pretty less heavier than on the Stryper versions of these songs. Overall melodic and driven by modern riffs, Michael vocals are on spot here…

STRYPER – Against The Law [Japan HR/HM 1000 Vol.2 reissue series] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Now we have here in exclusive the last of the STRYPER albums from the new Universal Music Japan campaign “HR/HM 1000 Vol.2 reissue series” including some awesome titles you need to own in a superior Japanese CD for a reasonable price.
And it’s the criminally underrated “Against The Law“, where Stryper changed in the musical and visual direction for a more commercial, eye catching look. Gone were the yellow and black spandex outfits, the bold evangelical lyrics and the original band logo with Isaiah 53:5. In their place were leather outfits, and lyrics more focused on rock n’ roll lifestyle.
Produced by expert Tom Werman, “Against The Law” is late ’80s US hard rock / metal with that big sound & polish. And we have Jeff Scott Soto on background / harmony vocals.

STRYPER – Soldiers Under Command [Japan HR/HM 1000 Vol.2 reissue series] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

As part of the new Universal Music Japan campaign “HR/HM 1000 Vol.2 reissue series” including some awesome titles you need to own in a superior Japanese CD for a reasonable price. We just purchased STRYPER‘s defining album “Soldiers Under Command“, and the sound quality is great.
”Soldiers Under Command” was the LP were everything came together for Stryper’s sound, which would finely pay off and earn them a gold status and started the band’s rise to stardom.
The hair metal catchiness from the era is blended with the band’s metallic attack on ”Soldiers Under Command’, for many, Stryper’s best balanced album. From one song to another, the arrangements are tight, and the hooks, harmonies and melodies manage to stay planted on solid metal terrain despite their potential radio accessibility.
