It's totally going to be a power metal/folk metal album. First the signing with Napalm Records and now "The Last Hero"? No doubt in my mind!

It was actually not an accident, if you look at the beginning of the video, they outright mentioned the title name intentionally. Flip had the honor of saying it.

Was it really an accident? People were just going to find it out in a matter of hours anyways :) It sounded to me like he meant to say it :headscratch :shrug

I think "So Moist Right Now" might have been a working title.

Aww, I missed the beginning of the video. I thought he just accidentally mentioned it while summing up the last three records. That's a lot less fun, lol.

YES! I am not the only one! I swear that song title has forever ruined anything else with Hero in it. Now all I think about when I see "The Last Hero" is that song.

We can now name a board song woop! Right at the bottom, Cradle to the Grave.

Kind of useless as the board is usually used to give us the song names before they tell us, but I cherish the board.

My only concern is that the word "hero" has been overused so much in modern rock music where bands like Nickelback, Skillet, and Shinedown has a song with Hero or Heroes as the title. I wonder how AB can present their theme regarding the term "hero" that makes it unique and enjoyable to hear and represents Alter Bridge well?
