Alter Bridge – The Last Hero


When I first heard about Alter Bridge all I can think was that this was going to just be another version of Creed minus Scott Stapp — which actually would not be bad. However, I was wrong as Alter Bridge came forward with a fresh new slightly harder sound and I actually enjoyed listening to the band. It’s been a few  years now and Alter Bridge continues to release great sounding albums. Their latest release and fifth studio album, The Last Hero, continues to deliver.  If I had to best describe the sound to someone who has never heard of the band I would say it has a newer hard rock sound while Myles brings almost an 80’s glam band type vocal sound to the mix — which I love. The odd thing was as much as I like Alter Bridge I could not stand the Myles Kennedy with Slash work (maybe it was just overplayed) but when it’s straight up Alter Bridge, I’m a huge fan and love this album.
