In this day and age, when old 80’s hard rock bands keeps reuniting to the left and to the right, there are two things that appreciate the most: 1) When the band contains mostly of original members. 2) When they don’t just do the nostalgia thing, but keeps on releasing new high quality products despite the fact that record sales are ridiculously low. Bands that comes to mind are Winger and Europe. And of course, Stryper. Since their reunion in 2005, the band has released no less than five albums – that’s more than they did the first time around. Of course that’s a bit sugar-coated truth as two of those five albums doesn’t contain any new material – well, almost anyway. One was a covers album (The Covering, 2011, contained two original Stryper songs) and one was an album of old songs re-recorded (Second Coming, earlier this year, also with two new songs), but what I’m getting at is that there is a will to move forward and just not touring festivals, living on past glories.
