Kanye West
's new album may claim to feature God -- but if He is really on "Yeezus," then his fans deserve to know just how ... this according to the lead singer of '80s Christian glam metal band Stryper.

The band's front man Michael Sweet tells TMZ ... he gets it if Kanye's boast that the Big Guy is featured on the track "I Am a God" is figurative -- "When you believe in God, you want Him to be a part of everything you do, guiding you through the entire process. So, I understand what is meant."

But Sweet says if Kanye means it literally -- and let's face it, he probably does -- he wants details, like ..."I've always wondered - is God a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist or a singer? I'm guessing The Master of all ..."

We called God for comment. Sounded kinda like Kanye.

Like them or not, Stryper are here to stay! They've lasted almost 30 years, and no signs of slowing down!

Jesus....ha ha...firstly, Kayne West is nearly a self parody of himself now; why bother to stress out over anything he has to say or do? And secondly " glam " was a term used for David Bowie, Iggy and the Stooges, New York Dolls, Hanoi Rocks, T-Rex, Bryan Ferry...Stryper are HAIR METAL. And why are they complaining about this? In the 8o's these lined the bible they DIDN'T throw away with their cocaine! Are they trying to be relevent again? Sweet as an earlier poster JW pointed out doesn't seem to grasp the concept of figurative and literal. No need to get upset...just b/c some scrawny wimp idiot like West says " I'm God " doesn't make it anything other than number 1 million on West's list of "STUPID THINGS I'VE SAID SINCE BIRTH."
