Stryper has released a mini-documentary giving fans a glimpse of where the Christian metal legends stand at this point in their career.

Stryper, the 35-year veteran pioneers of their genre, are re-energized coming into 2018 with Perry Richardson joining the band on bass and a new album "God Damn Evil" set to release in April.

After taking a brief hiatus last fall while searching for a bass player, Stryper is releasing new music and music videos with a renewed sense of purpose and focus. Last month, Stryper released a mini documentary about the subject of being Renewed.  You can watch it below.

In the six-minute video, band members Michael Sweet (lead singer), Robert Sweet (drummer/visual timekeeper) and Oz Fox (lead guitarist) reminisce about the past and the future direction of the band. According to lead vocalist Michael Sweet, the group is called to continue to spread the good news:  "Right now we feel that everything is anointed by God, that He has given us a vision and a calling upon our lives to still do this."

Through the documentary, the new bass player Perry Richardson is introduced to Stryper fans as a key aspect to the energized spirit. "We feel reinvented. It feels like with Perry, with the new album, with some new songs, with a new attitude, a new tour coming, it feels like we're doing this again. It feels exciting and like we're 18, 19, 20 years old again," said Michael Sweet.

The band is calling this their "most daring album to date" and saying that "the best is yet to come" as they prepare to unveil their latest project this spring and head out on tour starting May 6 in Cleveland. You can catch the documentary on YouTube as well and keep up with Stryper by following them on Facebook, Twitter or by visiting their official website.
