This is just the thing; Michael seems to want to prove his "heaviness" credentials these days, and that he can write "borderline thrash." The question is: why? Stryper's albums have had plenty of songs that veer more into metal - "The Way" or "The Reign" are good examples. I don't understand why a good melodic hook doesn't seem to have the same validity.

As it is, I liked the verses of the new song okay, as they were reminiscent of the first two albums. But that chorus...woof.
