Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

The Last Hero "Can you hear the marching, beating of the drums?" The Last Hero 's title track opens right into the verse as Myles sets the scene for this album's second epic. Flip works the hi-hats over dirty guitar chords before the main riff kicks. The quick, repetitive picking could be...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Island of Fools If there was ever an embodiment of all the words typically used to describe Alter Bridge—heavy, melodic, soaring, intricate—it would be called "Island of Fools". The song opens ominously with a single repeated note, like the one Myles plays live when teasing the beginning ...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Twilight Beginning with lightly-overdriven strumming reminiscent of a Mayfield Four song, "Twilight" quickly ramps up as more guitar layers and drumming are added into the mix. The main riff kicks off into a major-heavy chord progression reminiscent of "Break Me Down", but don't...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Crows on a Wire "Crows on a Wire" commences with a mammoth set of loose power chords, riffs, and drum hits whose sole purpose are to wind us up. Then like a hypernova, the intro kicks into gear with one of Mark's chuggiest, crunchiest riffs ever. The heaviness pours into the verse as Myle...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

You Will Be Remembered The clean-picked notes that open "You Will Be Remembered" set the stage for The Last Hero 's ballad in the style of Daughtry's "Home" or Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn". While not a particularly complex song, it serves as a moving tribute to ...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

This Side of Fate When asked whether The Last Hero contained any "Blackbird"-style epics, Alter Bridge pointed to "This Side of Fate" as one example. At almost 7 minutes long, it's easy to see why. However length alone does not an epic make. The term is perhaps overused, but wha...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Losing Patience "Losing Patience" starts off almost like an industrial rock song with a droning guitar riff that sounds like you're being attacked by a swarm of bees. The same riff holds the entire track together as it repeats at various points throughout. And for good reason—this is one ...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Cradle to the Grave "Cradle to the Grave" begins with a beautifully patient, clean guitar progression that some may compare to what we'd hear on Blackbird in songs like "Brand New Start" and "Wayward One". This immediately sets the pace for what could be a fan favourit...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Poison in Your Veins Following the spirited "My Champion", "Poison in Your Veins" quickly picks the pace back up. The intro, barreling head-on into a slithering guitar riff and a swaggering bass line, prepares us for the rock to come. The verse settles into a sleazy groove, sust...

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

Re: 'The Last Hero': song-by-song rundown

The Other Side "The Other Side" brings us down from the fast-paced one-two punch of "Show Me A Leader" and "The Writing On The Wall". It starts out with a haunting, echoed vocal that would be right at home on AB III. This leads into a nasty, chugging riff, setting up a...
