Editorial Reviews

It has been three years since Alter Bridge's last studio album, ABIII, was released in the US, but it is clear their fans have been waiting for them to return. Now the rock juggernaut band comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals, Mark Tremonti on guitar, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums return with their fourth album, Fortress slated for release on October 8th via EMI Label Services. The latest record builds upon the sound that Alter Bridge has been known for with their uncompromised vocal melodies, untouchable dueling guitar work and pounding rhythm section. The album was produced by long-time Alter Bridge producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, known for his work with Falling In Reverse, Story Of The Year and Incubus to name a few.

ABIII hasn't even completely sunk it yet.. & the 3 year cycle ends :p This is one of the few bands that I wait for eagerly to release a new album.. remember the kind of feeling you had back in the day, before the release of a new Tool album... or Metallica, RATM, Soundgarden.. you feelin' it yeah ;) ?! so finally Alter bridge grace us with another offering in the form of Fortress.

Below is my track by track review of what I must say, is one of the best Metal albums of 2013.

CRY OF ACHILLES - one of the most beautiful, if not the best intros, I've heard to an opening track of any album in awhile.. the Spanish Acoustic guitar sound.. kinda reminded me of some work by Heitor Teixeira Pereira (Brazilian Musician) with Hanz Zimmer. The song itself bursts into awe inspiring energy soon after the 30 something seconds intro setting the tone for the rest of the album.. I could safely call it the "Ties that Bind" of Fortress!!

ADDICTED TO PAIN - OK.. so when I heard this song first, to be honest I thought it was a mellowed down version of "Wish You Well" off the Tremonti Solo album.. yeah, that was until Myles vocals kicked in.. and then Mark's awesome guitar solo. I was sold by the end of the song. Myles' vocals have never been better, combine that with a mix of hard hitting drums and thrashy riffs, its already becoming a regular anthem at AB concerts as you read this, definitely the best choice as a kick off single from this album.

BLEED IT DRY - one of the heavier songs on this album, Scott displays a good drumming technique making the song sound almost progressive! Myles vocals are haunting really, when he sings.. "one day you will see..." That takes us straight into Marks solo, which is probably one of the best on this album, touching Blackbird standards.

Alter Bridge is continuing to demolish the world of lazy, mundane music with this album! I've been a big fan of these guys since day one and this album does not disappoint. I could do the whole track by track review but instead I'll just say this, I consider this album to be a mix of the Blackbird positive/emotional blend and ABIII's heavy weight darkness. Sprinkle in some of Mark Tremonti's awesome independent album. Just buy it!

Where do I begin with this release? How about this: I'm not really sure why people are calling this AB's "heaviest" release. I'm not sure about that. Does it have heavy songs on it? Sure, but I don't think it's any heavier than AB III. Maybe it's just me.

Simply put, every song on this CD is good. If there is one song I probably skip through most it's Bleed It Dry only because I find it a little too repetitive. Otherwise, I don't skip around on this one. I play it through and stop to re-listen to my favorite tracks. So, I'll just highlight the ones I really really like. Before I do, let me just encourage you to buy the whole album. I'm NOT simply suggesting you buy just these songs.

Waters Rising - My favorite track. Heavy. Great, varying harmonies. Tremonti actually sings the lead on this and his voice is clean and heavy.

The Uninvited - Like Waters Rising, really well-written and catchy.

Farther Than The Sun - A great hard rock song. Just like all the AB songs you like, it's a nice one to sing along to.

Fortress - All title tracks should be killer. A lot of them are. This one is. It's a deep and ranging song. Everything you love about AB is in this tune.

Fortress is like a kick in the ass that will not let you sit quiet . Thunderheart , hard , powerful but melodic and heavy . It may be the most complete and varied album of ALTER BRIDGE and the cd with the longest songs . An example of the variety of styles of FORTRESS is Cry of Achilles , a song with progressive influences like the song that gives the title to this album , Fortress . Then this cd has a long list of the hardest songs that have been recorded ALTER BRIDGE such as Bleed it dry , The uninvited , Cry a river ... I 'm a guy who usually the singles are not my favorite songs , but I love Addicted to pain , that belongs to the list of hard songs I mentioned before . As with every Alter Bridge album , there is a place for melodic songs like the unusual Lover ( awesome mid-tempo)brilliantly sung by Myles Kennedy and the wonderful All ends well . When I heard that in this album was going to be a song sung by mr . Tremonti I don't know what to think about this but Waters rising , that is the song in question , is fantastic and Mark does a work so remarkable as he did in his solo album and also has a place to sing Myles Kennedy what makes the song something special . Calm The Fire is a break in this cd because ,for me , apart from being a very good song , I see a resemblance to MUSE , in the melody and the voice of Myles (may it is a delusion of mine ).To finish, I want to highlight the good work that has made Michael "Elvis" Baskette with the production of this album, giving it a heavier and strong sound , which is what he could not get in the production of ABIII , although ABIII is a awesome album.FORTRESS is the album that every fan of Alter Bridge waiting for this band and that every follower of hard rock and modern metal should buy. Recommended!!!
