The industry might be in a rocky state right now when it comes to adequately showcasing the best talent and getting it in front of the most receptive audiences, but for hard rock and metal acts, bands like Alter Bridge forever guarantee the best rewards are for those who seek them out instead. Over the years they've soared like a phoenix from the embers of Creed, emerging as a band with a devout purpose; to combine the melodies and song-structures that got the post-grunge legends to the top of the charts and stadium headline bills the world over, with a hard-hitting workmanlike attitude that ensures they'd earn every seat in every chair. So what does it mean to be an Alter Bridge fan in 2015? Do you know your Couer D'Alene's from your Cauterize's? Your freeform jazz interludes from your flamenco instrumentation sections? Maybe so, maybe not, but either way we've all got those songs you recommend to friends as what'll showcase the best the band has to offer. For me that means Myles Kennedy's greatest high notes and Mark Tremonti's most complex and anthemic guitar work - the songs that put them on the map and the others than kept them there. Let us know in the comments what your own recommendations are, which songs you think any self-identifying fan needs, and see how much you agree with my choices too!
