Alter Bridge – Fortress [2013]

Alter Bridge return with their highly anticipated new album Fortress which is definitely one of the best hard rock albums of the year. Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Blackbird and ABIII) and mastered by Ted Jensen, Fortress is an album full of hard hitting riffs, soaring choruses, and some killer guitar solos.

Myles Kennedy is again the star of the show with those big vocals and he’s strongly supported by the quality guitar playing of Mark Tremonti and the massive rhythm section of Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips on bass and drums respectively. Highlights include the heavy opening track “Cry Of Achilles”, the metal grooving riffs of “Bleed It Dry” that shifts into a sweet guitar solo, the amazing vocal melodies and the whispered opening lyrics of the big ballad “Lover”, the epic opening sound of “Calm The Fire” which turns into a huge driving riff, and the stunning chorus and uplifting sentiment of “All Ends Well”.

Alter Bridge are probably the best twin guitar band in rock at the moment and Fortress is another awesome album that is highly recommended to fans of quality hard rock. I’ve been blown away by these guys live before and now I’m really looking forward to seeing them again at Soundwave festival.
