Sunbomb is a highly anticipated new musical alliance between two steadfast warriors of the US hard rock and metal scenes – Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns) and Michael Sweet (Stryper).
They have made an absolutely blinding album together, melding influences of classic acts such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest with Tracii’s love of various metal subgenres.
Evil And Divine is much heavier than one would normally expect from the duo and can definitely be categorised as ‘metal’. With Tracii writing the music for the album, the fact that Michael has been writing and performing in an increasingly heavier style on recent (and well-received) Stryper albums made him a logical choice to sing.
Given that doom metal was a massive influence on Tracii’s songwriting, and is a subgenre known for powerful singers (such as Messiah Marcolin from Candlemass), Michael’s vocal ability and range proved to be a perfect match.
