    Anyone listen to their disc "One Day Remains"? Probably one of the best ROCK CD's I've heard in a while, very good CD start to finish. A few songs like "metalingus" definately push into the Metal realm. At least as good as the last Creed disc IMO, worth checking out.

    Anyone seen these guys live?

    I picked it up. It's not bad. Basically just Creed with a harder edge and a new singer.

    I only bought it last week, on the account of numerous recommendations. It hasn't exactly set my world on fire yet, but I'll give it a chance.

    I really like it. I think its a lot heavier than most of the Creed stuff and Mark Tremonti plays a lot more solos that are actually pretty good in my opinion. I also think that the new singer sounds very good.

    Yeah, the new singer has some balls. Tremonti is definately throwing in more pick slides and dives than he did on the Creed stuff.

    I was a big Creed fan because of Tremonti, so I knew that this cd was gonna be kick ass, and I wasn't disappointed. The only problem I have with the cd is how mellow it gets as it goes on. I'd rather it just kick ass with a few slow numbers in there, but whatever. It's still a great cd, and I'd recommend it for anybody that hasn't heard it yet. They're coming to Philly next month, so I'll most likely be there.

    Yep, I wasn't a Creed fan either, but I am really enjoying the Alterbridge stuff. Maybe it was just Scott I didn't like.

    I picked it up when it came out.....not sure if I've listened to it since.

    Not because it sucks, just didn't touch me or pull me like some discs.

    A good rock and roll album...Tremonti's cool.

    Default Altar Bridge

    Saw that Altar Bridge was on Leno last night. So I skipped the horrible show and tuned in the last five minutes to check out the band. Always had liked Creed, but had not heard much of the new band.

    They were great. Kick ass song and Mark Tremonti was insane. He was doing dive bombs and whammy bar stuff that sounded just like Eddie. Don't know the name of the song but give that band a chance if you have time. I almost got out of bed to come send this message last night they were so good.

    And they are super nice guys to boot! When they were here in Tulsa, I told Mark how much I dug their song "One Day Remains" and how the licks he played gave me goose bumps. He then offered to show me how he did it.

    So after the meet and greet was over, he and his finace took me back to his dressing room where he plugged into his practice amp, warmed up a bit and then just blew me away with his playing. Basically, he gave me a quick guitar lesson right there on the spot.

    The guy is good. Real good. I was impressed with his skill and more impressed with him as a person.

    I saw the band twice live this past winter and they are even better live.
    Until Creed gets back together (they will someday) this band plays great music and kick's it live.
    Catch them if you can!

    I haven't heard anything other than the first song they released, but I like that one. I thought about going down to see them when they were in Tulsa, but Van Halen was the next night, and we all know which one I went to go see.

    Also, not to be an ass or anything, but shouldn't this be in the Music Forum? Just an observation.
