Rise Today

Personally, I love it. It's a great new change for Alter Bridge. It's good to hear that they truly aren't trying to be "Creed Pt.2" (unlike some here-to-be-unnamed-solo-artists out there). Also, you can definetly tell that it has some Myles Kennedy guitar work in it, which adds a whole new color to the mix. I like it, a lot. I'm glad they put out this song as a single. ROCK AND ROLL!

Great change? Sounds like a B-side to ODR. Was hoping for alot better lyrics too.

Re: Rise Today

Come on! A lot of ODR sounded like "creed with a new lead singer". Same octave chord riffage, all that stuff. But, this here, this "Rise Today" sounds like a new animal. There are some new guitar tones, some pretty awesome licks by both Mark and Myles, you can HEAR homeboy Brian on this. Personally, I think this album has a totaly different feel. I like it.

Re: Rise Today

Reminds me alot of Shape Of Things To Come (by Audioslave) for some reason too . . .

I concur. My initial impression is that it sounds like the same old thing.

Re: Rise Today

yeah... i'm not quite impressed by the new material either... I did like that was some slide guitar in there (be it little) so it's good that they're broadening their horrizens.... but i was expecting alot more to be honest. I think we've all been anticipating new stuff from the guys for so long that our expectations may be unrealistic?

idk i think alot of us have this idea that Mark is gonna be the next big guitar hero... It just didn't sound like it on that track

Re: Rise Today

Myles plays the slide guitar.

I think the song will be a #1 hit. I love it!

Sure, we're all expecting for some Tremonti-madness, but wait until you hear the album and specially, the song Blackbird.

Re: Rise Today

What struck me as interesting was the breakdown, right after Myles sings "all we need is love". Listen to that. It is SO Mayfield Four-esque. Brought back some good memories. I love this song so much. I can't wait for the rest of the album!

Re: Rise Today

Now, I can see why people gave Creed a hard time. Redundant, repetitive, and radio friendly songs. Nothing too challenging. The song isn't bad... but if you were looking for something complex... then this isn't your song. They're just keeping the status quo. Which is understandable seeing as they're on a new label and looking for air time.

Re: Rise Today

given the state of rock and the sound and tone they have gone on this first single (?)....I am vary wary of the radio play and sucess...I am waiting for a higher bit rate/high quality to get a good sense...I will still like the album most likely but I am a bit wary...but I will bide my time till I hear the album

Yeah, but then again they've been in the studio for a looong time, to make sure everything comes out just right. And both Mark and Michael have told us that this album is going to real special and that all these tones are monsters! The best they've ever written. Of course we have high expectations!!

[quote=Bridge of Clay]I think the song will be a #1 hit.QUOTE]
I reeeeaaaally doubt that! I think Open Your Eyes was a way better firs single than this. Just doesn't have that catchy-feel to it a radio hit needs!
