04. Run in You

05. Plan

06. 4 Leaf Clover

09. I Believe

10. My Love I'll Always Show (ROXX REGIME/STRYPER remake)

Excellent news! I hope it's on par with Reborn or anything they have done really. I love 'em all!

 

 

I agree... I really like the "Reborn" release. I too hope this lives up to what Stryper is capable of.

I guess I'm the only one who didn't like REBORN then. <_<

Man, I can't wait. I just hope it doesn't have that modern rock sound that was in Reborn, as I'm not much a fan of that album, but love all their other ones. I'm interested on how Track 10 will sound.

Huuuge fan of Reborn here.... so following on from that would be great.

Some of those track names early on really dont sound like Stryper song titles though.

 

Those last few tracks sound a bit odd though.

A Boston cover on a Stryper CD? Yeh Michael sung at that concert recently but, still doesnt sound right.

 

I hope they beef up Strong. It was just a limited edition fan club release off his website a few years ago that never made his albums. It sounded very demo-ish to me.

"Reborn" was good, but God knows (pun intended) Stryper can do better. I was (am) quite happy with "Reborn," but would love to see them really knock it out of the park with the next one.

Reborn was an awesome release.

Its a toss up between that and Against the law for my fave Stryper album of all time, so yeah, I hope its similar is style!

I thought Reborn was horrible. Not even close to their older stuff. The best song, by far, was In God We Trust, a remake of an older song. THAT tells me the release was super lame.

The biggest problem I had with Reborn was the production. Plain and simple it was weak and the drums sounded like crap!

The songs themselves were fantastic! It took me a while to get into the Reborn because of the production

 

According to Michael the new album will be closer to the classic Stryper sound....SWEET! :headbanger:

 

Can't wait!

I hate to do this to you on your first post & all but I thought the production & drums were great. I just think they alienated their fans a bit with the direction. But I never had a problem with the sound.

    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected.
