Re: The Fortress Reviews Thread - All Album Reviews Go Here

And even if the songs are heavier, that doesn't mean there can't be variety. From what we've been told, it is supposed to be a less predictable album. I don't think it would really be that unpredictable if most of the songs felt like they were using the same bag of tricks each time. That was the mai...

Re: Listening to Addicted to Pain

Second listen. I think the chorus is starting to grow on me a bit more now. I still like the solo, but I think the "Cry Out" section just replaced it as my favorite part of the song. That part gives me chills. It's like the bridge in "Metalingus" only way more addictive. (sorry, ...

Re: Listening to Addicted to Pain

I just listened to it for the first time a few minutes ago. The chorus doesn't do a lot for me, but I like the rest of the song. I appreciate the straightforwardness of the verses, where Myles voice is so loud and clear. I don't get how people are disliking the solo. It was by far the best part of t...

Hey, it was just a guess. I didn't know people had actually heard the song already.

Re: The new single will sound like ____, ____, and ____.

I'm actually getting a bit of a Slip to the Void sort of vibe from the artwork. I don't think there will be a big quiet section like in STTV, but elements from it could very well be there. I think there could also be some "White Knuckles," influence in there, though I think the lyrics migh...

Re: Addicted To Pain - Artwork Thread

I think the problem with the main "Fortress" artwork was that the title and photo were battling for your attention. Here, on the other hand, things have a singular sense of artistic direction. The main album cover was okay, but sometimes simpler, more stylized artwork is just more appealing.

Re: Do you love the album art?

I do actually think that the Alter Bridge logo looks better in the second version where it's more subtle. Still, I feel like some of the added details to the shack feel unnecessary. The window, for instance, looked a lot better when you couldn't see anything inside. And though the main logo works fo...

Too bad that cover it isn't official. That would've been perfect. I don't know how I'm not gonna be disappointed with the real one now. :mope

Re: AB IV Writing/Recording Sessions

I hope Fortress tops Blackbird for me, they are definitely capable. Yeah, me too. I think Michael said Fortress (Ritual) landed at 7:20 mark. Fortress doesn't necessarily have to be longer than BB to top it. We'll see. I'm excited to hear it, excited to hear the new album overall. It's been way too...

Re: AB IV Writing/Recording Sessions

For AB, I'd probably picture something along the lines of what Rush did in Clockwork Angels (the album). I thought it worked pretty well for them. As Mark once said, AB is first and foremost a guitar band, but I could see them mixing songs with a bit of orchestration. Besides, didn't he also say the...

Re: AB IV Writing/Recording Sessions

It might be cool if they actually came with a title that incorporates the band name in some way.

Re: Best AB Bridge's?

I thought the AHIG bridge complimented the underlying emotions of the song beautifully. Once hope is lost, the initial emptiness turns to anger and aggression, just like in the bridge. That section helps make the song feel like a warning of what could happen if hope is lost rather than a glorificati...

Re: AB IV Writing/Recording Sessions

The solos on AB3 are all good, but a lot of them do kinda blend together. I think their placement within the songs is the main issue there. Especially in the latter half of the album, nearly every song ends with a quick, high energy guitar solo outro. It gets tiring.

Re: AB IV Writing/Recording Sessions

“We did more pre-production on this album than any of the others,” says Tremonti. We had 16 songs on the shortlist, and this time the mid-tempo, strummy ones didn’t make the cut. The heavier, higher energy songs did. I’m glad – it’s going to be a fun element to perform, which is important if you’re...
