Stryper are offering fans a head banging view of who their influences were early on, with the arrival of an almost entire album's worth of covers, 'The Covering.' The album includes twelve rocking covers, as well as an all-new original tune, "God." And most significantly, the album marks the return of original bassist Tim Gaines back into the Stryper fold, setting up the first Stryper release in years to feature the definitive line-up of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass), and Robert Sweet (drums). Don't miss a special interview with Michael Sweeet Friday, March 4th at 11 am during the MotorCity Metal Show with the Bloody Butcher on Metal Rocks Radio.
