“‘The Alchemist’ is written as a metaphorical debate for creation. The song’s protagonist sets out to disprove creationism by showing that through science we have the potential to create and recreate the world around us (alchemy is, by definition, the practice of turning ordinary objects to gold). The first-person narrative follows our scientist as he struggles with research and calculations that point toward a solution he did not intend to find. He finally bows to the evidence, and confesses his conversion to believing in a higher power. The bottom line here is that mankind is the created, not the creator.”

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
