Michael Sweet Interview with Maggie Wright
August 26, 2016 saw the release of Michael Sweet’s best solo album to date. The Stryper front man created his 7th studio album, “One Sided War” and features the talents of Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, David Coverdale, Night Ranger) and Ethan Brosh on guitars, Will Hunt (Evanescence) on drums, and John O’Boyle on bass.
“Musically its my heaviest solo album. It's not thrash metal but there are definitely some songs on there that will pop out at you. There are some songs that have a bit of the Iron Maiden / Dio feel to them, as well as some songs that have a little bit of a Van Halen influence to them. Its a very guitar-oriented, hard rock/metal album with lots of melodies and hooks,” explains Michael Sweet.
The album was recorded at Spirithouse Recording Studios in Northampton, Massachusetts, and showcases the talents of Sweet as not only an incredible singer, but as a writer and producer as well.
