Heavy metal certainly has no shortage of rebels. It seems like everybodys rebelling against something, and thats part of the genres allure. However, the most rebellious thing anybody can do is hold steadfast to personal beliefs and never waver. Stryper indisputably do both. Theyre not shy about their Christian beliefs, but theyre also consistently as heavy as any of the genres pillars. Following up 2013s seminal opus No More Hell To Pay, which debuted at #6 on Billboards Top Rock Albums Chart and #2 on the Christian Albums Chart, their eleventh full-length original album, Fallen [Frontiers Music SRL], is their heaviest offering to date. In the past 30 years, weve evolved into what we are now, says vocalist and guitarist Michael Sweet. This is what we always really wanted to be. I love the progression. The story of Stryper is that of an underdog. We go against the grain with everything we do. This album is another chance to show the world what we can do.
