Remember the classic STRYPER album “To hell With The Devil”?
It’s been 19 years since the album is out and recently frontman Michael Sweet posted the following message on social media on it’s anniversary with the album achieving Gold status in 1987.
“On this day in 1987, To Hell With The Devil was certified gold by The RIAA – it went onto multi-platinum status. Despite all the battles from both sides (mainstream and Christian), we did things our own way and millions of fans around the globe supported our unique and one-of-a-kind approach to metal. We broke down walls and barriers and destroyed the perception that metal belongs to the Devil. Over 10 million albums later, we’re still blessed to be able to produce some of our best music to date.
Who knows, maybe we’ll break new ground and produce another album that achieves Gold certification. Anything is possible if you set your heart and mind to it. Thank you all for helping Stryper accomplish greatness. We are humbled and blessed.”
