    With their new live recording coming out soon, and a couple of the tunes already released, it got me thinking about my favorite songs by these guys. I really like a bunch of their songs, but if I had to choose 2:



    and



    Ok, Ok.................and maybe Blackbird. :cool:

    Probably Broken Wings . It's hard to choose a favorite. They're my favorite active band. Seen every tour; some more than once.

    This is the best I’ve heard too.


    They don’t sound enough like Barry White for me.

    Blackbird, Cry of Achilles, maybe Fortress for the dueling solos. I like most of their stuff, and Tremonti's solo stuff as well.

    Isolation, Cry of Achilles, and Open Your Eyes. I like most of their music; and live they are awesome!

    AB is one of my favorite bands, so it's hard to tell what my favorite song is. To me many of their songs work on a different level so this is a tough one.

    One of my favorite songs that's not been mentioned yet: "Peace is Broken" from "Fortress". I love the insane riff throughout the song, the different melodies
    and how it's all put together. But as far as I can tell no one had the chance to see that song performed live? :D



    I am a big fan of Mark Tremontis work since the 1990s (Creed). And if any of you happen to stumble upon a "Sound and Story"-DVD from Alter Bridge I
    highly recommend getting it.

    The one thing I always have to think about, is which song to present to someone who's never heard of AB...

    Songs that came to my mind over the past minutes (and I haven't seen mentioned):

    "Metalingus" - I'm still waiting for the day to see clearly, so...
    "Wonderful Life" - Great idea behind the song, absolutely stunning vocals by Myles
    "Never Born to Follow" - Still trying to figure out WHY I like this one so much
    "Calm The Fire"
    "Watch Over You"
    "Lover"

    And while I love some songs for various reasons on "The Last Hero" I have to admit... that one is turning out to be my least favorite record. Stuff like
    "Crows on a Wire", "Island of Fools"... I really like those. But somehow the whole records sounds somewhat... like if they tried to put in things after
    the songs had been done. Felt somewhat the same when "Tremonti: A Dying Machine" was released earlier this year.

    To me it's one of the bands where I still can't decide which album I like most, so I better stop now... ;)

    On their "Last Hero"-Tour 2016 my sister decided to gift me the "Meet & Greet" pack.... I felt like a child for a few days, somehow I wanted to put something together I could give them. Only a few days were left, so this is what I came up with:

    Totally useless, but who cares? xD

    Sadly Fret12 totally f*c*ed up the meet&greet reservation, didn't answer multiple mails over a week and couldn't care less when we contacted PayPal to get the money back. So I didn't have the chance to seem them that evening and the led star was given to one of the securities. Don't know what happened to it after.

    Sorry for extremely OT.
