Re: Alter Bridge - VII

I stand by what I said 4 years ago. Work with a producer who will push you to do new things. Don't bring any riff, and write full songs in a room, as a band. Take risks. But they never listen to constructive criticiscm, and still think Elvis is fantastic, so why even bother? Joe Satriani did this o...

Yep, I see no need to make demands on these guys. That's why they're one of my favorite bands. Just let them deliver whatever it is they feel like makes a good AB7 album.

Re: Confessions At The Alter

1. I hadn't even heard of Alter Bridge because I don't pay much attention to music culture. I'm pretty sure I had at least known that Creed was broken up. My brother new I liked Creed a good bit and he's much more attuned to pop culture than me and bought me the album for my birthday. 2. Not long af...

Re: Alter Bridge/Creed/Mark Tremonti Tuning Master List

While I agree with the majority of your additions, these few I would disagree on; ... For "Words..." Mark is tuned to Db Gb Db Gb Ab Db (you can hear that ringing Ab during the verse while he frets the A note on the 3rd fret of the 3rd string), and for Dying Light he is tuned to Open Gb-m...

Re: Video Game Bonanza!

I remember reading an import review of Demon's Souls before it hit the states and the game sounded great. I picked it up immediately when it released without worrying about reading other reviews which was a rarity for me. I still haven't played Sekiro myself... no time lately with a 2 and 3 year old...

Re: Video Game Bonanza!

I played the original Halo when I was a kid and basically grew up on that series. I was young at the time but I do remember it. The original DOOM…wasn’t around at the time of its heyday but I have played through the original one. The shotgun that shoots forever is a classic. Yeah, the Doom single b...

Re: What songs do you use to introduce Alter Bridge to new people?

Watch Over You – a ballad about drug use; did quite well as a crossover single in 2007 Watch Over You is about drug use? I never would have guessed that. I guess we should ask ourselves how we got into Alter Bridge. I discovered them for many reasons that all came together. First, in 2019 I bought ...

Re: Alternate track listings for the albums

The only album order which I can recall disagreeing with at all was Walk the Sky. I really hate One Life as an opener. I think In the Deep would have made a much better opener. They could have done almost anything after that. I don't like One Life as an opener either. But, I wanted to keep the same...

Re: Video Game Bonanza!

Still playing Slay the Spire. They've released what they've said is the final patch and that patch has made it's way even to the mobile versions. Highly recommended! The game was good in early access Beta, but in it's final form it is just sublime. Also, my new Switch OLED arrives tomorrow (my old o...

Re: Hypothetical AB VII - The Ides Of Marching In Time

To do it right you actually have to mix the songs together. Slow some down, speed some up, pitch shift into the same key:

Re: Marching In Time

I still think Cauterize and Dust should've been one album. 11-12 songs. Release the rest as a Record Store Day exclusive or something. One strong album > two mediocre albums. In my opinion. For most double albums I'd agree, but for me when he released the two independently I didn't even realize the...

Re: Lesser Known Artists

If STP is your favorite band, I can see how you wouldn't agree. For my part, I never really got into any STP full albums after Core and Purple. Core is an iconic album in a historical way for me, but I guess I just don't like listening to it all that much. Army of Anyone is an album I can have a few...
