SWEET & LYNCH / Ex-MEGADETH Bassist JAMES LOMENZO’s Bass Speaks - “He Tends To Keep Me In A Dark Closet, But Every Now And Again He Will Take Me Out And Beat Me”; Video

Sweet & Lynch, featuring Stryper vocalist Michael Sweet and Lynch Mob/Dokken guitarist George Lynch, will release their sophomore album, Unified, on November 10th. In the new video below, drummer Brian Tichy (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake) interviews Wynn, the bass guitar belonging to James Lomenzo (ex-Megadeth, White Lion, Black Label Society):

A music video for the new Sweet & Lynch songm “Walk”, will be released this Friday, November 3rd. A trailer for the clip can be seen below.

Sweet & Lynch is centred around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of heavy metal stalwarts Stryper (ex-Boston) and iconic guitarist George Lynch (Lynch Mob, KXM, ex-Dokken) along with bassist James Lomenzo and drummer Brian Tichy. In addition to his vocal and guitar work, Michael Sweet handled all of the production duties on Unified.

"George and I couldn't be more excited about this album! We've worked very hard to bring you the best of both worlds - a throw back of the chart topping Stryper/Dokken days yet with a modern production that fits right in with anything out there now in the rock world today. We couldn't be more proud than to be working with Brian Tichy and James LoMenzo again as they are the best rhythm section you'll ever hear. If you liked Sweet & Lynch I, you're going to love Unified," says Michael Sweet of the new album.

The combination of Sweet's powerful, high-octane vocals, Lynch's immediately recognizable guitar work, and Lomenzo and Tichy's propulsive rhythm section make for an amazing musical combination. The album gives both Sweet and Lynch the opportunity to operate outside of the boundaries of their most well known work and really stretch their wings. Pummeling, traditional heavy metal combines with hook-laden melodic rock and traditional hard rock for a recipe that will satisfy the hungriest of rock fans!

Unified is an absolute must hear for fans of all of Michael Sweet and George Lynch's previous work and of course for those who enjoyed the band's excellent debut album.
