Arguably the most game-changing Christian rock band in history, Stryper continues to excel with a steady stream of new music that fits right alongside a ten million-album selling catalogue. In fact Fallen comes just two years after No More Hell To Pay landed at #35 in the general market’s Billboard Top 200, and clearly the Dove Award winning/GRAMMY nominated group’s been rejuvenated by such unwavering public reception. Though the new project most certainly sounds like it was produced in 2015, “The Yellow And Black Attack” are once again recalling their heavy melodic rock/metallic edge of the 80s and falling right in line with the now classic tradition of “Free,” “Honestly” and a whole host of other hits that once ruled MTV. “Fallen” and “Big Screen Lies” scream with charging guitars, “All Over Again” puts a few unpredictable twists on the textbook power ballad, while aggressive album closers “The Calling” and “King Of Kings” boldly retain the group’s spiritual insistency in the midst of ongoing crossover success.
