One On One With Mitch Lafon - STRYPER & ELECTRIC BOYS

Artist: 
 
STRYPER vocalist MICHAEL SWEET and ELECTRIC BOYS singer CONNY BLOOM join Mitch on episode 160 of One On One with Mitch Lafon.

In our first interview, Stryper's Michael Sweet discusses the band's new album Fallen, his love for Van Halen, whether or not he regrets the band's Against The Law record, the choice of yellow and black, Slayer, a second Sweet & Lynch CD, progress on his new solo album and more.

Quotes from the interview:

On Van Halen: "I'm one of the biggest Van Halen fans going. I would love to get behind the board (of course co-producing with Eddie) and help them get back to their roots. I know they've got it in them."

More Van Halen: "I'm a fan of the first four albums. To me, those had the fire and had the passion and I just don't hear that on A Different Kind Of Truth. I just don't."

Capturing the classic Stryper sound: "When I started writing and thinking more along the lines of Stryper of old. I started getting this passion and this excitement level that I haven't had in years."

Stryper's Against The Law album: "It doesn't sound like classic Stryper to me."

Quotes from the interview:

On a new Electric Boys album: "We've recorded some ideas, but there's no plan as to when we're going to record it."

On a new Conny Bloom solo album: "I'm in the process of mixing one and the fun thing - it's in Swedish. The songs are pretty cool. It's closer to Jimi Hendrix than modern Aerosmith."

Multi-Platinum Rock Band STRYPER Tops US Charts with 'Fallen'

Artist: 
 
The most critically acclaimed album of the band's 32-year career sells over 10,000 copies in the first week in the US and lands at:
 
#2 on Top Hard Music Albums
#2 on Top Contemporary Christian Albums
#2 on Billboard's Top Christian/Gospel Albums
#5 on Top Current Rock Albums
#20 on Top Current Physical Albums
#26 on Top Current Albums
#29 on Top Current Digital Albums
#44 on the Billboard Top 200
 
With the October 16th release of their ninth studio album, Fallen, Stryper continues to dominate the hard rock/heavy metal scene. The Frontiers Music SRL release sold over 10,000 copies in the US during the first week of release landing at #2 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart, #2 on the Top Contemporary Christian Albums chart, #2 on Billboard's Top Christian/Gospel Albums, #5 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart, #20 on the Top Current Physical Albums chart, #26 on the Top Current Albums chart, #29 on the Top Current Digital Albums chart and #44 on the Billboard Top 200.

In addition, Fallen soared to #1 on the iTunes Top Metal Albums chart and #3 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart immediately upon release. Stryper's latest studio effort consists of 12 songs showcasing the musicianship that has garnered them a huge fan base in the mainstream world and Christian market for three full decades.

"We are truly blessed to still be making music 32 years into our careers, music that relates and speaks to our fans worldwide,' says frontman and album producer, Michael Sweet. 'We strive to outdo ourselves with each release and hopefully we've done that with Fallen. Here's to 32 more years!"

32 years after exploding onto the rock scene ' and MTV ' Stryper has delivered their most critically acclaimed release to date. The Associated Press recently decreed, "If this were 1986, this album would easily sell 2 million copies. But it's not, and that's a shame, because 2 million people need to hear how good this album is." Metal Onslaught Magazine recently raved in their first ever 10 out of 10 review, 'Like a fine wine Stryper have improved over time and have become legends in the metal genre,' and CCM Magazine declared, '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.'

The music video for the single, 'Pride,' premiered exclusively at Billboard.com and can be seen here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/6730798/stryper-pride-video-premiere-fallen-album-exclusive

Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all time. Rocking since 1984, the band is responsible for such '80s metal classic albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell With The Devil and In God We Trust. In fact, Stryper is the first band to ever have two songs in MTV's Top 10 simultaneously with their hits 'Free' and 'Honestly.' After a sabbatical for much of the 1990's, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated band has sold over 10 million records worldwide.

STRYPER - Fallen (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
94%
Produced By: 
Michael Sweet
Running Time: 
52
Release Date: 
2015
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Melodic Hard Rock
Score: 
94
Label: 
Frontiers
Artist: 
 
What I want to know is who lit a fuse under Michael Sweet to inspire such a creative flourish? In the last few years we’ve had a Stryper covers album, a re-recordings set, a live album, Sweet’s own solo album, the Sweet & Lynch epic and now we are on to the latest studio album, which comes after the band’s acclaimed No More Hell To Pay.
Fallen takes up where that album left off and continues the evolution of Stryper, surely now one of the most credible hard rock outfits in the world, not just of the Christian rock scene.
It’s hard, it’s fast, it’s energetic and it’s also enthusiastic in spirit.
From the opening chords, the album (produced by Sweet himself) defines the Stryper sound as melodic, yet in your face and fueled by a guitar driven energy.
The positive lyrics and Christian themes don’t overshadow a strong musical performance and a rawer, heavier production style.
 
Yahweh is an absolute belter to open the account. Big riffs, bigger vocals and a stomping heavy beat driving this soaring semi-progressive hard rocker. Without being overly commercial, it’s a catchy tune. One of Stryper’s heaviest ever songs.
Fallen seems to take the foot off the pedal after a ferocious intro. But the mid-tempo groove gives way to another big catchy chorus with Michael Sweet singing like man possessed (in the good sense!)
Pride is another thumping rock track with a solid groove and a screaming chorus.
Big Screen Lies is the catchiest chorus of the album thus far. It rolls along nicely, a little less intense than the opening metal salvo.
Heaven has a slow to mid-tempo beat, but a very melodic guitar hook and chorus. A good mid-album circuit breaker.
Love You Like I Do is a cool melodic mid-tempo commercial rocker with a great hook and a tasty guitar solo that takes me back to the golden era of melodic hard rock.
All Over Again is the first ballad of the album and sees the acoustic guitars dusted off to help create a stirring commercial rock ballad.
The Black Sabbath cover After Forever rocks hard and fast and thumps along at a great rate before slotting into a bluesy groove and back again. This is heavy, aggressive, raw rock n roll with a really cool vocal.
Till I Get What I Need follows a similar path – fast, free flowing and rocking hard, and again with that heavy groove! Great little chorus with some harmony vocals making even better.
Let There Be Light is a slow, moody hard rocker that launches into a faster, harmony filled chorus that makes the track another album highlight.
The Calling is simply put – a short, sharp, commercial hard rocker with definite appeal.
King Of Kings closes the album with another hard edged thumping rock track. The chorus is one of the best of the album, ending this 50 minute sonic blast with a bang.

This is really a very well balanced album. Power to melody; rockers to moodier numbers and lead vocals to harmonies; all in balance.
Another very accomplished piece of work from main man Michael Sweet and band. As primary songwriter and producer, Sweet’s vision has come together perfectly and Stryper fans will simply love this latest addition to the band’s now considerable catalogue.

STRYPER Return With New Track 'Fallen'

Artist: 
 
STRYPER RETURN WITH 'FALLEN'
THE TITLE TRACK FROM THEIR UPCOMING 9th STUDIO ALBUM SLATED FOR RELEASE ON OCTOBER 16th
 
Physical And Digital Pre-Orders Currently Available

Stryper are back to reclaim their throne in the hard rock/heavy metal world with the latest song from their upcoming 9th studio album, Fallen. The title track 'Fallen' can be heard via YouTube at the following link: https://youtu.be/IBdoO1FUdng.

The original lineup comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitars), Oz Fox (guitars), Tim Gaines (bass) and Robert Sweet (drums) return with an album of all new material showcasing the musicianship that garnered them a huge fan base in the mainstream world and the Christian market. From the opening choral refrains of  'Yahweh' to the signature vocal scream at the end of 'King Of Kings,' it is apparent that Stryper is back with their heaviest and most inspired work to date that is scheduled for release on October 16th via Frontiers Music SRL. Fallen is available for pre-order via digital retailers and can be ordered via iTunes at http://radi.al/StryperFalleniTunes and via AmazonMP3 at http://radi.al/StryperFallenAmazon.  It is also available in various physical configurations at www.stryper.com/fallen. Fallen was produced by Michael Sweet.
 
'Fallen is about Lucifer before he became Satan. It's the story of how he got kicked out of Heaven. He tried to overthrow God and take over,' describes Michael Sweet. 'The song talks about how beautiful he was. When he walked, there was music. He was the angel of worship and this incredibly powerful and beautiful being.'
 
The latest song comes on the heels of the album teaser track, 'Yahweh,' that was released last month and has been listened to over 135K times since it went live. 'Yahweh' was a musical writing collaboration between Michael Sweet and Sevendust's Clint Lowery. Tracks like 'Pride,' 'Big Screen Lies' and 'Til I Get What I Need' show that Stryper is back and better than ever. Stryper offer their unique interpretation of the Black Sabbath classic 'After Forever.' The band flexes their softer side on the instantly memorable 'All Over Again' which continues the journey Stryper fans began almost 30 years ago when 'Honestly' was released to mainstream success.
 
The track listing for Fallen is:                                                    
 
1)      Yahweh
2)      Fallen
3)      Pride
4)      Big Screen Lies

STRYPER - Live At The Whisky (Review)

Produced By: 
Stryper
Release Date: 
2014
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Hard Rock
Score: 
86
Label: 
Frontiers
Artist: 
 
Yet another live CD/DVD release on the market here, with Stryper the next cab off the rank.
The 16-track collection documents the band’s first show in support of No More Hell To Pay, the band’s most recent (and well received) release.
The show is set in the intimate setting of LA’s famous Whiskey club, meaning the crowd, the stage, the cameras and the amps are all packed in. There’s not much room to move up there on stage, but the band lets the music do the talking.
 
The audio capture is ok – not the best I have ever heard, but far from the worst also. At least the band is truly live up there and not relying on overdubs.
 
Material comes from across the band’s catalogue and the new album, plus that blazing cover of Jesus Is Just Alright complete with some tasteful shredding by Michael Sweet – the guy is an underrated guitarist!
The DVD of Live At The Whisky also contains the music video for “No More Hell To Pay” and “Sympathy” from their latest album No More Hell To Pay plus an interview segment.
 
 

A disc and a DVD for a fair price is good value for fans and I have no doubt most Stryper fans will have already run out and scored a copy of this. If not – it’s a safe bet folks.

Comprised of the original line-up, Stryper has been rocking since 1984, and is responsible for such '80s metal classic albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell With The Devil and In God We Trust. Stryper is also the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly.” After a sabbatical for much of the 1990's, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated band has sold upwards of 10 million records worldwide.
