Re: New Stryper album: "The Final Battle" (2022)

There is no ambiguity in the lyrics. Stryper is an unapologetically Christian band.

Re: New Stryper album: "The Final Battle" (2022)

This record has some familiar parts repeated on the last couple and Michael's solo records. So, if anyone liked those, they will like this one. They seem to have hit the wall that every metal band seems to hit after a while, where they've used every riff they know and have to start recycling. I'm n...

Re: New Material

A new full album would be great, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

New Stryper album: "The Final Battle" (2022)

Styper just release another new album, and it's pretty awesome. How is it that they've managed to stay relevant and successful while staying true to their musical roots? Christian bands aren't supposed to be capable of that. I don't know how much studio trickery is being used, but Michael Sweet soun...

Every Petra album is a "greatest hits" collection as far as I'm concerned. 8)

Re: New project featuring John Schlitt

I didn't really care for the band until John started singing, and then it kinda rocked. John seems to be one of those singers who can make anything sound epic, and I think the band would be improved with a better vocalist. If you listen to female fronted metal bands like Evanescence, Nightwish, or E...

Re: Hey there...

To my knowledge, this is by far the most active Petra fan site on the internet. With all half dozen of us who post semi-regularly. Give it another five or ten years or so and this forum will probably die out. I'm not sure when this place had peak activity, but it was probably at least a decade ago ...

Re: TUOSS new project soon!

Except for the covers, I've not heard any of these songs previously, so it was my impression that they were all new.

Re: 50th anniversary concert!

I really wish they had the money (and the fan interest) to have done a proper send off show with a concert video and live album. Oh well, that's the Christian music industry for you. Old bands get no respect. I think there aren't enough old farts with money to spend who know they are still around. ...

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

Bob said in an interview that Back to the Street was written for Greg's voice, but I have to disagree...it sounds WAAAAAYYYYY better with John. To each, their own, of course but John has a MUCH larger natural vocal range than Greg! I don't know if John has a better range. It just seems that Greg mo...

Re: I Will Call Upon the Lord

Continuing a conversation you started over a decade ago? That has to be some sort of record.

Re: TUOSS new project soon!

But there's very little new material on this 'album'. Bundling old stuff and adding a couple of new tracks doesn't make it an album... So I've now listened to the whole album, and I don't think your description is accurate. Eight of the ten tracks are original songs as far as I know. Track six titl...

I just bought it on Qobuz: https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/one-more-shot-the-union-of-sinners-and-saints/dhkq1jnsoojdc I haven't listened to to the whole thing yet (the opening track kicks pretty hard), but I will say, the cover is atrocious. It looks like a placeholder until someone gets around t...
