Stryper Frontman Michael Sweet Says They Have Finished Work On New Album

Michael Sweet, frontman of Christian metal legends Stryper has posted an update on his Facebook page proclaiming that the band has finished work on their new album. The message reads as follows:

“Three things stand out to me on the new Stryper album:

“#1 – Songs! They’re edgy & heavy, yet memorable & catchy. And yes there’s a ballad (rock/guitar ballad).

“#2 – Clarity! We tried hard to make this our most defined & dynamic album ever. We didn’t get into a “loud war” while mixing & mastering. Because of that it retained it transients and it really “breathes”??

“#3 – Stryper got their groove back”

This will mark the group’s first album featuring bassist Perry Richardson, who joined the band last year and their first release since 2015′, “Fallen.”

Mychrildren Mybride Premieres New Song “Thorns” From Upcoming New Album “Vicious World”

Mychrildren Mybride premieres a new song entitled “Thorns”, taken from the upcoming new album “Vicious World”, which will be out in stores October 13th via eOne Music/Good Fight Music. It will be the band’s first release since its self-titled album hit back in 2012.

Comments vocalist Hasting:

“Much like our last record, we really tried to be diverse and establish a different mood for each song. You’ll see that same ideology is very present with ‘Vicious World‘. ‘Thorns‘ is the love child of Marilyn Manson and Advent, a song you can move and bang your head to, and just a small taste of how far we pushed ourselves on this new record. It’s been quite some time since MCMB has released music, and we’re extremely proud and excited for you all to bounce along with us to this song.”

Track list:

01 – “XeN0”
02 – “Act I: Elysium 77”
03 – “THORNS”
04 – “Act II: Sonar”
05 – “The Acrobat”
06 – “Act III: Wither”
07 – “The Fountain”
08 – “CICVDVS”
09 – “Act IV: The Laughing Coffin”
10 – “KevlAr”
11 – “I.O.U.N.”
12 – “Guardian XIII”

Eschatos Releasing “The Grand Noire” Album

Starwolf Records is pleased to announce that the label’s first release will be “The Grand Noire” by Eschatos. Previous self-released with five tracks, this six-song version of the album will be officially released on October 7th, 2016

“The Grand Noire” is a journey through dark passages and grim misfortune. The six tracks on the album are chaotic, brooding and blackened. Starwolf Records comments:

“To truly understand what Eschatos is, look inside your own abyss. Look inside those things that make you feel condemned, uncomfortable and wary, things that make you raging mad and rabid, things that make you feel hateful. This is the fuel that burns the black flame of art that is Eschatos – untamed, lawless, pure and destructive. Void and chaos is where all things are born, and so was Eschatos.”
