Michael Sweet talks "Fallen"

Post by KaramKaram on Sat Jun 13, 2015 9:22 pm

Here's a little insight on "Fallen":
The album was written and arranged very quickly (9-10 days actually). This by no means reflects on the quality of the album. It's some of our best material to date and so far those who have heard it have said the very same. Chris Jericho texted me and said that Yahweh may be the best song since reuniting. Kevin (our publicist) said that the ballad is our new "Honestly"!
There are songs on this album that coincide with sitting down and reading the bible. The music is heavy and the lyrics are bold and powerful, some taken right from scriptures. Sonically I think this is our best sounding album to date! Everything is crystal clear. The highs are crisp and the lows are tight and punchy. The more I listen, the more excited I am for all of you to hear it!!!
We will be announcing a track listing/song titles soon and once we have a date to release the first song (and which one) you'll be the first to know.
Love you all and I hope you're ready for "Fallen"

Interesting.  Of course, it's to be expected that he touts it as some of their best material to date.  What he says about the lyrical content definitely intrigues me though.

Musically, if it's anything like NMHTP, I'll be happy.  I like that album a lot, and I'm not normally big on that style of metal.

Good news, NMHTP was a great album so hoping they keep with that sound.

Well, for the latest album he did say something similar, and he was TOTALLY right, NMHTP was/is their best album, I know it will be difficult to top that one, but they seem to be in their game lately

I think you need a few more randomly picked descriptive words there.  Perhaps a bit more Christianese would help.

How about "Sanctified Born Again Christian Evangelical Bible-believing Jesus Classic Metal Band".  Yeah, that's the ticket! lol!




For the record, I am a huge Stryper fan.  My only real complaint with the news about this CD is that we can't buy it yet.

It's what Steve Rowe has described Mort as in the past...

Isn't that what the internet is all about, finding entertainment in other people's suffering?

I don't see how they could get any harder ( while staying within their sound ) without actually changing styles....

So, yeah, um, this sounds like it could easily be the heaviest Stryper we've ever heard. Check this out...short, but sweet!

Seriously, from that short poor audio clip you can tell that?

Again, why heavier equates better to some I'll never know...
