Puerto Rico has been a witness in several occasions of Stryper – from its first visit – who always demonstrate a great charisma and very good musical style with a message. They came this time with all original members: Micheal Sweet, Robert Sweet, Timothy Gaines and Oz Fox. Michael Sweet treated us by a greeting in Spanish: “Dios Les Bendiga Puerto Ricoooo!!!” (means “God Bless you, Puerto Rico”) until Oz Fox salutes in Spanish too.  Oz was screaming: “Boricuaaaaaaaas!!!!!! Como Estan!!!!” (means “Boricuas, how are you?”)
They played almost all the greatest hits songs, such as: “Soldiers Under Command,”  “Calling On You,” “Free,” the most popular ballad “Honestly,” “All for One,” “Reach Out,” “More Than a Man,” “The Rock That Makes Me Roll,” “Together As One” (acoustic), “Loud ‘N Clear,” “The Way,” “To Hell with the Devil” and the Christmas song, “Winter Wonderland.”  From the last album Murder By Pride: “4 Leaf Clover,” “Murder By Pride,” “Peace of Mind,” “Eclipse For The Son” and “My Love I’ll Always Show” (the rock version). But the band didn’t play any songs from the album In God We Trust (1988) and they forgot to do the ending prayer.  Ah! What a sorrow! But the band did a great show. Thas was the sixth time Stryper come to the “Isla del Encanto”(Island of the Captivation).  This had been a very Great Time!

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
