The original lineup comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitars), Oz Fox (backing vocals/guitars), Tim Gaines (bass) and Robert Sweet (drums) returns 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. Fallen was produced by Michael Sweet.
Fallen is about Lucifer before he became Satan. Its 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 Sevendusts 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 offers 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.

Powerful guitar riffs and lyrics with a deep sense often make the album the first class. Each song that is presented in the album is filled with separate episode that and together the composition makes an awesome story about the Lord of the Morning star before the fall.
While listening to this music you can imagine everything that is sung in the songs and that is probably the most interesting thing about this album. As Solutions4WeightLoss wrote: if you are passionate about Christian Rock then, you will be strongly inspired with the story of the fallen angel, who decided to stand against God. The lover of both aggressive and soft vocal will find a song that will come to one’s ling. Listening to music is always a unique experience that grants new emotions each time you listen to a song even if it is the same one.
