Following a covers album and a set of re-recordings, in 2013 Christian rockers STRYPER delivered the well-met “No More Hell to Pay”. Obviously settled in their groove, the band wastes no time in delivering “Fallen”, their 2015 offering. This band’s ballads were once a larger part of their identity than the heavy metal worship of Jesus Christ. Those days are gone, and “Fallen” is more about heavy metal worship than those syrupy ballads that once dominated MTV alongside Paula Abdul‘s girlie jams. Take that as you want, but STRYPER‘s latter-day toughening up suits them as they resume their crusade to blow speakers in God’s name.
