Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

The should totally release remixed/remastered versions of their previous albums when they turn 20 in 2024.

Re: Best and worst Alterbridge album

Fortress – their most consistent and tight album, and also quite diverse. As a package, that's their best offer. One Day Remains – no bad songs, best production, very positive vibe and optimism. ABIII – their best streak of opening tracks, their most heartbreaking ballad (Wonderful Life), their best...

Re: What happened to the riffs?

I think that it's just their new direction since The Last Hero – stadium rock, giant wall of sound, all that stuff: their last album was pretty big in charts, they are no longer "that awesome rock group no one knows about". It's not that they've just forget how to write cool riffs – last T...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

I don't know why they do that to themselves, again and again

Maybe because Elvis still thinks that Loudness War is still a thing in 2020.

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

Sounds like some wrestler's/wrestling PPV theme to me. The only cool part is that sinister descending vocals.

I feel at this point that their modern rock/post-grunge roots is holding them back a lot.

Re: Oh, come on!

I finally heard the live version of Native Son on YT. Now nothing remines. I'm a native son in a foreign lond. Living in a world I can't understond. Why? My working theory is that Myles developed some voice-saving habits while singing for Slash (I am almost sure that it's because of the Guns'n'Rose...

Re: Walk The Sky 2.0

The real question – is this song co-written by Myles and Mark or is it made by one of them as most of the songs on the last album? Also, I see singles and EPs as a good thing. Releasing only LPs every 2-3 years doesn't look like a sustainable business model anymore in music industry, especially in r...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

After listening album for two more times, I want to give an advice for those who are still struggling with this record: listen it with a volume slightly above the middle and take a walk during the process. Personally I always listen to music on the highest volume, but Walk The Sky sounds almost unli...

Re: Walk The Sky Reaction Thread

I've listened to it once and I want to say this: if The Last Hero left me disappointed, but it still had 6 songs that I can listen and enjoy, this album made me feel nothing (except Dying Light, it's a legit great song and the fact that Mark and Myles made it together tells a lot). For me, this reco...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Two new 10 minute promotional videos about songwriting and recording insight: https://youtu.be/0lL3bLOplgA https://youtu.be/mQK43bJ965g So there are some mellotron sounds, just like I wanted - that's good! At one point Myles says that Elvis can change the sound of the keyboard part without the band...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I think "You Will Be Remembered" could be a killer song if it's called "You Will Be Dismembered" and played by a different band.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

“Indoctrination” takes an artsy turn and the first minute of the song has a very stripped down feel. This song sounds like it was inspired by the Alice in Chains “Dirt” record. Does it mean what I think it means? Eerie vocal (dis)harmonies? It's funny that people were just talking about "Slip ...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Yep, their newest music videos definetely should be thrown to the trash bin with stadium rock attempts and modern rock radio singles. They deserve better visual representation than this.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

This song I can refer to as «vintage Alter Bridge» and this song I immediately started again after first listen. First four singles are so generic to me that I honestly can't differentiate between them, this one brought me goosebumps twice during the first listen which happens almost never when I li...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread



I'd honestly listen to the whole album with the sound of One Life – it's warm, trippy and highly atmospheric. Also Wouldn't You Rather magically sounds better live.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I def received some mixed opinions on a post I made about this on Ao12. I too am a bit surprised at how negative the reactions are from the fans this go round. I think the obvious reason their music is sounding vastly different from past entries before an album release is they're taking a strong sh...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I didn't like the previous three songs, but in this one there are a few moments that were pretty good. And that's the problem. After reading all the feedback about new songs, I haven't saw anyone say something like "this song is perfect as it is from start to finish". Almost everything I'v...
