ALBUM REVIEW: Alter Bridge – Walk The Sky

Fifteen years into their career, Alter Bridge doesn’t get tagged with supergroup much, inspire of their clear affiliations to other major bands (Tremonti, Creed, Slash). However, they are a super group of music makers and songwriters. Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy do their best work together, and some of the best tracks of their lives on their new album Walk The Sky (Napalm Records).  Continue reading

Sevendust – Tremonti: Live At The Paramount

In the music industry parlance, sometimes a Iine-up makes too much sense. For two bands with similar career arcs and having even been on festival bills together, it seems odd that Tremonti and Sevendust have never toured together in the USA.

Both bands had a throng of fans in the house to see them. Continue reading

Alter Bridge – Live At The Royal Albert Hall feat. The Parallax Orchestra

The first thing that strikes you during the sumptuous, slow-build to opening track ‘Slip To The Void’ is how perfect the marriage of Alter Bridge and The Parallax Orchestra is; Myles Kennedy’s vulnerable, melancholic introduction is subtly embellished by the swells of strings before the dramatic introduction of the guitars and the rest of the band is powerfully bolstered for the heavy verse, with perfect accentuation following on the middle eight.

Tremonti – A Dying Machine

In the shadow of such arena stomping colossi as Creed and Alter Bridge, Mark Tremonti’s solo venture has, in your scribe’s opinion up until now, felt lacking. Never being outright bad and often capable of huge songs (as you can expect from the driving force behind the two former), the previous Tremonti albums have not hit levels of adventurous writing that Alter Bridge, in particular, have been capable of, and at worst have felt fairly plodding and generic. Proving that fans of any of his works should never write him off, however, I was pleasantly surprised to find that A Dying Machine (Napalm) is a step up for the Tremonti band in virtually every fashion.
