STRYPER frontman Michael Sweet has posted the following update online wherein he calls upon fans to tell him what they want to here on Stryper’s new album:

“What do you want to hear on the next Stryper all original record? Straight ahead rock/metal with no ballads or a power ballad or two thrown into the soup? I think a record consisting of songs similar to the style of ‘The Writings On The Wall’, ‘Soldiers Under Command’, ‘More Then A Man’, ‘Free’, ‘The Rock That Makes Me Roll and ‘In God We Trust, ‘Rocking The World’, ‘Loud And Clear’ ‘Caught In The Middle’ and ‘God’ would be slammin'!!! I've got a lot of songs heading in that direction; Maybe no ballads?”
