Berserker IV Feature - Sweat

Kicking things off in the Vernor's Room on Saturday night is Flint, Michigan's own Sweat. You may have seen this trio at this year's Hamtramck Music Festival or even opening for Oathbreaker last week at El Club. This band is best described in their own words. "We create a lot of sound, but we're dynamic too. Not always JUST loud. We play hard. We play dark. Shrill." Check out the music video for their song "Hema" below and give their some of their music a listen here.
