Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

The chorus to Coming Home just feels very awkward and disjointed to me. I actually like the bridge and that unique riff, but the chorus just puts me off. I’d probably remove One By One instead of Coming Home, but it’s close.

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

ODR - Watch Your Words BB - Break Me Down AB III - Breathe Again Fortress - Peace Is Broken TLH - Writing On the Wall I’ve always thought Blackbird would be even more of a masterpiece if they had cut Break Me Down and Coming Home and replaced them with New Way To Live and The Damage Done. Also, Love...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

There was so much drama after Rise Today was released. It’s pretty funny looking back on it though. lmao I was like 20 years old and I went offfff, full on temper tantrum - it was stupid weirdly enough the issues I had with the song at that time are long gone (at the time I was very right-leaning; ...

Re: Wouldn't You Rather

For some reason this song feels like it would fit right in on Blackbird. I’m already way more hyped for this album than I was for The Last Hero. It’s growing on me more every time I listen too.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

It’s definitely growing on more the more I listen to it, and just going by the overall sound of the song, musically it reminds me of Blackbird. If Walk the Sky brings the band back to that kind of musical atmosphere I’m going to be pretty happy.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I like it. Their first singles are almost always a song that’s going to be lost in a bunch of epics throughout the album, and this is a classic Alter Bridge first single. The guitars are sounding top notch and Myles voice is sensual as hell. :cloud9

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

That first lead up to release tends to make that record a persons favorite just due to nostalgia. I was put on to them when someone posted a link to the video for Open Your Eyes on a fucking Nickelback forum, lmao. Watched that video and immediately searched out this site. That was mid 2007 and I wa...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

It’s funny, I’ve always thought the general consensus was that ABIII was one of the bands weaker albums, but the people in the Alter Bridge Facebook group recently had a battle of the albums poll and it came down to ABIII vs Blackbird. Blackbird won, obviously, but ABIII convincingly beat Fortress i...

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Best: Blackbird. It’s tough to choose between this and Fortress from a quality standpoint, but the massive nostalgia factor puts BB over the top. Worst: The Last Hero. I actually hate saying the word ‘worst’ in relation to any AB album, because they all have fantastic parts, but a good bit of TLH is...

Re: 15th Anniversary!

Man, time has flown by. I was 15 years old when I adopted Alter Bridge as my favorite band, and that still hasn’t changed. I’m not much for going to concerts, I’ve only ever seen the band live at Rock On the Range in 2011 after they released ABIII. Most of my memories and nostalgia are of this board...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Anybody else ever search out and look through the old board before the move? I just randomly googled it and got hit with a massive nostalgia wave. I joined the day I turned 15 in 2007...I’m 26 now. Fuck. Even though I don’t post here very often and never really was part of the group that knew each o...

Re: Video Game Bonanza!

The Witcher 3 is absolutely my favorite game of all time, I've been playing it nonstop since I got it, probably finished it 7 or 8 times, including expansions. CDProjektRed are absolute geniuses and I can't wait for Cyberpunk 2077, it's my most anticipated game release in years.

Re: AB VI Speculation

As long as they kind of have a 'bounce back' album, I'll be happy. I didn't dislike The Last Hero, there are a few songs I really love, but as far as overall quality is concerned, it was definitely a couple of steps down from the previous four. They seem to have a cycle, though, at least in my opini...

Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

This is, perhaps, the first time that Mark Tremonti (solo, Creed, or AB) released a song that was almost completely uninspiring in any way. There is absolutely nothing special about As the Silence Becomes Me. There are no hooks whatsoever. I said "almost completely uninspiring" because I ...
