Another new Alter Bridge fan here! Like Sox I highly suspected I'd like them as I love Myles Kennedy's voice. Been sneaking Sox's recent purchase and giving it a few spins :grinthumb

I didn't know anything about this band till Magic convinced me to give them a listen...but it's been so long since I played any of their music I've forgotten what they sound like.:peek

I'll try to slip in one of their albums over the next few days.:hab:

And Tray...sneaking a listen to Sox's CD's when he's out working...Shocking!!

Love these guys. The Blackbird album is my favorite. Rocks hard from start to finish with awesome guitar work.

Just discovered this band through their new album Fortress. Gotta say I really like the sound to these guys. Heavy but varied in melody too. Love the vocals too.

Time to bump this thread, as the band has just released a new album. It's called "The Last Hero" and it's soooo good!

Track list:

1. "Show Me a Leader"
2. "The Writing on the Wall"
3. "The Other Side"
4. "My Champion"
5. "Poison in Your Veins"
6. "Cradle to the Grave"
7. "Losing Patience"
8. "This Side of Fate"
9. "You Will Be Remembered"
10. "Crows on a Wire"
11. "Twilight"
12. "Island of Fools"
13. "The Last Hero"

The following two tracks are currently my favourite tracks, but of course that is subject to change after more spins.





Another favourite is "Crows on a Wire", but it's not on Youtube yet.

In all honesty, they aren't that different in sound to Creed. A lot of people hold Alter Bridge in higher reguards than Creed, since Scott Stapp is not the vocalist. Myles Kennedy's vocal style is not all that different than Scott, IMO.

Another difference in Alter Bridge vs. Creed, is the religious references in the lyrics. Alter Bridge lacks these references :grinthumb

I am just getting into this band after seeing Myles Kennedy with Slash at Donington (Download) and being blown away with what they gave us. A friend suggested I get hold of "Blackbird" and so I did ... all I can say is I regret not getting it when it came out cos it's brilliant, I just can't fault it. So on to the next pick up for me, what a band.

I have their entire catalogue. It isn't like they have a dozen albums to sift through, so why dont you begin with the debut:

One Day Remains.

I think you will like AB. Myles Kennedy, IMO, is a much better vocalist than Scott Stapp. But I do like Creed, too.

You can probably find all of Alter Bridge albums on YouTube :)
