Re: Tremonti pt #4 - A Dying Machine

Just listened to Bringer of War. My first impression is: excellent riffs and solos but the chorus is pretty bland and the song structure is the same as always, but that's to be expected by now. Why does he always insist on those open chord, sing along choruses like this? It feels completely out of ...

[Suggestion] Song and album commentary subforums

http://forum.maidenfans.com/categories/song-and-album-commentaries.66/ I was browsing the Iron Maiden forums and they have this "Song and Album Commentaries" subforum in which they have a thread for each song of every album and one for the album as a whole. On each thread there's a rating ...

Re: Top 5 Favorite Alter Bridge Albums

1. Fortress Like you said, most of my top 10 would consist of Fortress songs. Cry of Achilles, Lover, Peace Is Broken, Calm the Fire, Waters Rising, Fortress are all amazing. My least favourite songs are All Ends Well and Addicted to Pain, but they are still very solid AB songs. The bottom of this a...

Re: Tremonti pt #4

The thing is where can we draw the line between Tremonti becoming Alter Bridge part 2 regarding them embarking on more of a progressive/longer tracks tendencies? The same can be said about AB as well going for a more metal direction. Most people praise AB for embarking on their path of not becoming...

Re: Tremonti pt #4

The only thing I ever wanted from Mark was more experimental song structures. He doesn't nees to go full on prog for me, but some more experimentation would be great. Hearing the same formula over and over gets a bit tiring after a while ya know. For example Iron Maiden is great at keeping things in...

Re: The Last Hero - AB Nation Discussion

A bit late, but here's my review of the album: I have extremely mixed feelings about TLH. On one side it's horribly produced (and needs a remaster), the side project influences aren't integrated well, too many lyrical tropes (hello "deny") and at times it feels like they're just rehashing ...

Re: Official TABN Review of 'The Last Hero'

Agreed with the rating but I'm not sure how the review supports the rating. There seems to be virtually no criticism except for the loudness. Reads more like a 4.5 than a 4. My average was 4.07/5 so basically it's a 4* record for me. I thought it was a pretty inconsistent album. It's got some of the...

Re: Come over to r/Alterbridge for an AB Listen Through!

The discussions are pretty fun. I did a listen through for the Dream Theater subreddit which turned the community to life there. I'm always on reddit and I had no place there to really discuss AB so I thought this'd be a good way to do that.

Hey guys! In wake of AB V coming out I thought it'd be fun to do a listen through of their discography on reddit.com/r/alterbridge. I'm gonna post 1 song discussion thread per day on chronological order with an album recap at the end of each album. I'll provide the link to the song, if available goo...

Myles had the intro, Mark liked it and the entire song grew from there. It's one of those rare moments where they actually sat together and wrote something on the spot.


You should listen to Opeth more.

Re: DUST - The Second Part

Here's a little (over?) analysis of the song. I'll start with the negatives: Song still maintains the same VCVCBC structure as always. I wasn't expecting that to change when Cauterize and Dust were recorded simultaneously though. Even if it takes away from the song a bit for me, I'll ignore that bit...

Re: AB V

I would like them to go a bit more prog. They don't need to go over the top, but some more variety in the song structures could do wonders.
