michaelsweetonesidedwarcdStryper’s frontman Michael Sweet added yet another record to his discography, when “One sided war” was released worldwide in August 2016 under the label of Rat Pak Records. Following the success of his last studio album “I’m Not Your Suicide”; for his 7th studio solo project, Michael teamed up with Joel Hoekstra of the Whitesnake and ex-Night Ranger fame, guitarist Ethan Brosh, bassist John O’Boyle and drummer Will Hunt of the Evanescence fame. Michael has been rocking the scene for almost three decades now and with this power packed album, he sustains his momentum and delivers a good taste of the 80s’ Hard rock and metal scene.

Michael states, “Musically it’s 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. It’s a very guitar-oriented, hard rock/metal album with lots of melodies and hooks. Originally I planned on showcasing my own guitar playing; I was going to do it all myself, but once I brought Joel & Ethan into the picture, things began to take a new direction and I am very happy with what we have accomplished”.
