Re: King Diamond / Songs for the Dead.... CD / DVD set.

OK, I ordered the Blu-ray... Long time ago I investigated Mercyful Fate / King Diamond... I liked this but to be honest I'm not the biggest fan so far. In the past it happened that live concerts have turned me into studio albums so I'm giving this concert a try. I'm curious to see this... Maybe Larr...

Re: Stryper radio airplay in the 80s?

Definitely remember seeing them every once in a blue moon on MTV, but don't recall them on the radio. It looks like it was more a MTV thing.

In the 80s I was sometimes listening to the radio, not anymore... I have never heard a Stryper song on the radio at that time. I was wondering if people here that live outside Quebec have heard Stryper on the radio in the 80s? In which country? Maybe the song "Honestly"? or other songs? Th...

The band is from Quebec City! 17 years in the making! This is their first album! Inspired by old school progressive rock but with more punch and more electric guitar which is more common in neo-prog!
