Grammy award-winning Christian rockers Petra produce another high-energy album full of devout lyrics and uncompromising, metal-influenced music. Through its 25-year existence, the band has undergone numerous changes in personnel and musical style; with GOD FIXATION, it has hit upon a winning combination, with hard-edged yet melodic and catchy arrangements and steadfastly Christian themes. "If I Had to Die for Someone," with its radio-ready sound and pious sensibility (addressing Jesus directly, the song asserts, "I am glad that You are not like me/'Cause you laid down Your life and did it willingly/It still amazes me to know/It's me that You were thinking of"), epitomizes Petra's winning formula.
