November musical offerings run the gamut from history to heavy metal

As one of the pioneering groups in Southern gospel music, the Cathedrals have had a rich legacy of songs and voices, including some late legendary singers. Family Reunion is a tribute to the group and features not only some of the group’s most popular alumni, including Ernie Haase, Danny Funderburk, Gerald Wolfe, Mark Trammell and Scott Fowler, but also the voices of George Younce, Glen Payne and Roger Bennett digitally mixed into new studio songs.
Songs on the project include “Can He, Could He, Would He,” featuring Mark Trammell; “Search Me, O God,” featuring George Younce and Glen Payne; “Champion of Love,” featuring Gerald Wolfe; and new radio single “We’ll Work.” The project will debut at a two-day Cathedrals event in Fort Worth, Texas.

No More Hell To Pay
Capitol Christian Music Group (Capitol Christian Distribution)
Christian heavy metal band Stryper returns with a new project of original songs, No More Hell To Pay. Dubbed by producer and frontman Michael Sweet as the “heaviest record,” the album is a sequel to the group’s popular breakout album, To Hell With the Devil, which released in 1986. That album provided the group’s first video to hit MTV, “Calling on You.”
Songs on the new release include “Saved by Love,” “Jesus Is Just Alright,” “Water Into Wine,” “Marching Into Battle” and the title track.
“Every song has a hooky guitar riff,” Sweet said. “Everything is in minor keys, so it’s a little darker sounding and a little tougher.”
Along with Sweet, the group comprises Oz Fox, Tim Gaines and Robert Sweet. Stryper has sold more than 10 million units and was the first band to have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously.
