Review: Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

Review: Alter Bridge – The Last Hero

From the late 90’s to the early 2000’s, hard rock and heavy metal music was everywhere. With the metal front being led by bands such as Coal Chamber, Slipknot and Korn, the rock front was dominated by the bands of Creed, Seether, Linkin Park, and Evanescence.
But after growing tensions resulted in the disbandment of Creed, forces between Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, Scott Phillips and Myles Kennedy were forced to create the driving force that is Alter Bridge.
Alter Bridge burst onto the scene in 2004, with their debut album ‘One Day Remains’. To date, the band has released four acclaimed albums, with their fifth ‘The Last Hero’ recently released on October 7th.
Just like its predecessors, ‘The Last Hero’ is a masterpiece of modern rock from start to finish. Kennedy’s energetic vocals are complimented by Tremonti’s powerful guitar, Phillips’s rhythmic drums, and Marshall’s driving bass lines. The lyrics on each track are enlightening, giving listeners a sense that negativity can be washed away. Standout tracks on this album include ‘Show Me A Leader’, ‘The Writings On The Wall’, ‘You Will Be Remembered’, and ‘Poison In Your Veins’.
Finding standout tracks on ‘The Last Hero’ was a hard thing to do, as each song on this album is a masterpiece — there were no filler tracks whatsoever. So, do yourself a favour and get yours hands on a copy of ‘The Last Hero’, which is out now.
