Michael Sweet, ‘Bizarre’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
As you can see, Sweet plays to the crowd in Las Vegas outside of the Golden Nugget delivering a blistering performance. His band for the video shoot varies a bit from the musicians who recorded the track on the One Sided War album, with Todd Kerns and Scott Coogan joining the live performance alongside Sweet and shred-master Ethan Brosh. On the album version of the track, Evanescence drummer Will Hunt and bassist John O'Boyle join Sweet and Brosh.
The track itself is metal-infused rocker, with Sweet showing he can still belt with the best of them. There's some serious riffing going on during the performance, as well.
Sweet tells us, "'Bizarre' is a throw back to my love for bands like Van Halen and Dio -- a musical frenzy with thought provoking lyrics and a blazing band (Will Hunt/Drums, Ethan Brosh/Lead Guitar, John O'Boyle/Bass). I'm so excited to be able to finally say -- 'Here's Bizarre!'"
