From 1984 to 1990, the best-selling rock band in Orange County was the Christian heavy metal group Stryper, the most prominent Christian hard rock band in the nation. Its five albums during that period sold near or above the 500,000 mark, with "To Hell With the Devil," from 1986, topping a million. But today, the band finds itself without a record contract, and without Michael Sweet, the lead singer and main songwriter who fronted Stryper as it rose to fame.

Ever since Cain and Abel, brothers have had trouble seeing eye to eye. In pop music, that's been all too apparent in famous blowups between Phil and Don Everly, the Kinks' Ray and Dave Davies and Oasis siblings Liam and Noel Gallagher. But nearly a decade after calling it quits, the siblings who fronted '80s Orange County heavy-metal band Stryper are hardly at each others' throats.

Amps? Check. Microphones? Check. Guitars and strings? Check, double-check. Box of Bibles? Maybe. As Stryper gets organized for a fall campaign of touring, guitarist Oz Fox thinks that he probably will bring along that last bit of heretofore standard Stryper equipment. This time, though, the Bibles will stay backstage.
