    Have any of you heard of Alter Bridge? it's 3 ex members of Creed and the old lead singer of The Mayfield Four (Myles Kennedy)

    They have a album out called One Day Remains and they're working on a new one right now.

    They just left Wind Up Records so now they'll be putting out a live DVD/CD :)

    They sound too much like Creed, and therefore, I can't stand them.

    They do sound like Creed...considering it is Creed with a new singer.

    Creed was good, but I couldn't stand Scott Stapp. Alter Bridge's new singer is a hell of a lot better, and I loved One Day Remains.

    I'm glad to hear they're coming out with some new material soon.

    Download Save Me, Open Your Eyes, In Loving Memory, Broken Wings, and Shed My Skin.

    Alter Bridge is my favorite band. Tremonti is by far my fav guitarist, he is simply amazing. Myles is an excellent vocalist. Find the Real is probably the best display of his talent, and Broken Wings is Tremonti's best in my opinion.

    Alter Bridge are quite good, I'm still undecided on whether they're better than Creed or not.

    I really like Creed. People started hating them when they discovered they used to be a Christian band or whatever, and then more when Stapp started acting like an ass in public. But all I care about is the music, and Human Clay is definitely one of my favorite albums of all time.

    Alter Bridge are amazing & one of my favourite bands. I'm going to see them live for the fith time next month with Shinedown, I can't wait. They're nothing like Creed, with the exception of genre of music. I was never a big fan of Creed either, but for some reason Alter Bridge I find great. I can't wait for their next album, which has been described as harder, darker but still very melodic.

    If you want to be blown away download The End Is Here. I can listen to that song 24/7 and never get tired of it, it's epic.

    Yes, I feel the same way. I think they didn't change their sound enough to justify a name change.

    What did you expect? 3 band members from Creed, and the sound side of Creed was always top notch. Why change that? And the name change, if you can't see why they did that, then you may be nuts. Creed had one of the worst reputations of any band. The name change was in hopes to shed that bad image that Scott Stapp was mainly to blame for. I think a lot of people have only heard 'Open Your Eyes' and automatically say that it sounds too much like Creed. The rest of the album is different though.

    Raj, you're a lucky dude. I haven't even gotten to see them once.

    No, no. Don't get me wrong - I love Creed. I'll be one of the first people to admit it to a group of haters. But Alter Bridge is better than they were. That's what I meant. I guess I should've probably cleared that up.

    If you guys didn't know, there is a song that was not on the album called 'Save Me' that is pretty damn good. It was on some movie soundtrack, definitely a great download.

    And really, all 3 Creed albums were pretty classic, Ryan. Even on Weathered they grew alot.

    No, Weathered was only put out there for one reason, to make money. That is one of the most radio oriented albums ever. Human Clay maybe, but I won't give you Weathered as being anywhere close to a "good" album.

    Bah, radio or not, I can't ever call anything Tremonti does bad. I wish he'd put out solo guitar records.
