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

People have a fixed number of good ideas. Fans don't like it when their band changes. They don't like it when they keep replaying the same old licks. I think they are better now than they have been. Lyrically, MS is throwing it down. This reminds me of a quote from a university dean (Criminal Justic...

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

Yeah. MS posted on FB that they finally tuned down to preserve his voice. Screams are all head voice and done at lower volumes. He could have done those, but my money is on those screams being Autotuned/Melodyned from a lower key. I keep listening for the sounds of a loop, so if it is manipulated, i...

Re: PDC 8

Yep. We wrote over 135 ideas in the last decade and have settled on 12. Those are 12 of the 13 or 14 we did last year. We have been slowed down by life events (other bands, recording, touring, work, torn knees, house remodeling....aaaaaand funding). Here's where we are: 1. 12 Songs are done and full...

Re: TUOSS new project soon!

Well, in their defense, albums don't move the sales needle anymore, especially for indie artists. The only reason to do an album is artistic freedom. Heck, the only reason to release anything is artistic freedom. There isn't much money in it.

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: RIP Carman Licciardello

Wow. The old thread revived. I might be the only one, but I really didn't like the Carman tune with Petra. That whole God has been removed from the classroom thing is a tired argument. It's made by people who wrap the US flag around the cross of Christ and sell it as one thing. That is not the reaso...

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

If the money was on the table, he probably would. Those are Bob's songs and they are very Volz like.

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

The only way the second CPR record got down was by a handful of people giving them the money, and the guys worked for free. So, if someone here wants to cough up 25k or so, I am sure they could motivate the guys. If I had the money, I would pay for Volz to track the whole Back To The Street record. ...

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

Nah. I doubt they will. It is too hard to recoupe expenses. With the global economy being what it is, it will be harder than it was pre covid. Any new and original music will be written by Greg for the most part. You can hear his music on his solo releases.

Re: Petra cassettes

Have your CDs recorded onto tape. Don't get rid of them. What will you do WHEN you have drop-out, or your machine eats the tape? Tapes are inferior in every way to CDs. They have much lower stereo channel separation and signal-to-noise. They have print-through effect (which is when you hear a phanto...
