Professionally filmed video footage of Christian hard rockers STRYPER performing a cover version of the JUDAS PRIEST classic "Breaking The Law" in October 2010 in Jakarta, Indonesia can be viewed below. The clip also includes an excerpt from an interview with PRIEST singer Rob Halford in which he comments on STRYPER's version of the song.STRYPER's new covers album, "The Covering", will be released on February 15. The CD, produced by frontman Michael Sweet, is unlike any previous STRYPER recording in that it's a collection of cover songs from bands that inspired them and helped to shape their sound and musical identity, including hits from JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, LED ZEPPELIN, KANSAS and many others. "The Covering" also includes "God", a new original recording from STRYPER. STRYPER recently released its covers of BLACK SABBATH's "Heaven And Hell" and KANSAS' "Carry On Wayward Son" via iTunes. STRYPER is preparing to enter the studio to start work on a new project as well as tour extensively throughout 2011-2012 in support of the "The Covering". The band also recently joined forces with Union Entertainment Group (NICKELBACK, HINDER, DEFAULT, CINDERELLA, MR. BIG).
