Stryper Frontman Michael Sweet Says They Have Finished Work On New Album

Michael Sweet, frontman of Christian metal legends Stryper has posted an update on his Facebook page proclaiming that the band has finished work on their new album. The message reads as follows:

"Three things stand out to me on the new Stryper album:

"#1 - Songs! They're edgy & heavy, yet memorable & catchy. And yes there's a ballad (rock/guitar ballad).

"#2 - Clarity! We tried hard to make this our most defined & dynamic album ever. We didn't get into a "loud war" while mixing & mastering. Because of that it retained it transients and it really "breathes"??

"#3 - Stryper got their groove back"

This will mark the group's first album featuring bassist Perry Richardson, who joined the band last year and their first release since 2015', "Fallen."

Looking forward to the new Stryper record. Musically, I think they blow much of their 80s counterparts away, and their last two records were their best metal albums yet. "Yahweh" song is epic. They likely don't miss having to fit within the MTV pop rock star mold, then again, they likely do miss selling millions of records. MTV was good for some things. :~
