Stryper is most celebrated 80's Christian rock band there is. Anyone reading this most likely knows the impact that Stryper has had on the scene. From the soaring vocals of Michael Sweet, the guitar attack of Oz Fox to the visual timekeeping (a show all on its own) of Robert Sweet, this band plowed a lot of ground and few would debate their legacy or impact. When the band reunited, the Christian rock community had massive reason to celebrate. Stryper 2.0 was here. Although many thought that Stryper's first album back would be the next To Hell With the Devil or In God We Trust album. What we actually got was something altogether different. Stryper was Reborn. After Reborn dropped in 2005 most were just thrilled for something new, however some had complaints that it wasn't the same ole Stryper. I for one am glad that we aren't still living with Blockbuster, MySpace, AOL, Netzero, Buicks, and flip-phones. I'm glad we've evolved and so should music. In my book, Stryper did it right. They reinvented themselves. Reborn and Murder By Pride are quintessential Stryper history.

We wanted to take a moment to explain the imagery that you hold in your hands. We have always been a band who makes extremely bold statements spiritually, vocally, musically, and last but certainly not least - visually.
We have committed our lives and our band to serving God, and with this new record we feel “Reborn”- individually and collectively. As these photos portray - no matter how hard we strive to free ourselves from the slime and the sin that consumes us, only God can set us free, and through Him, we can be “Reborn” again! -Stryper
