Alter Bridge – The last hero (2016)


I have long been in awe of Myles Kennedy’s vocal talents, so it was pretty well a no brainer to get the fifth Alter Bridge album on its release last October.

Heavy metal in its purest form, this doesn’t hold any punches. In fact, whack up the volume on ‘My Champion’ and you’ll feel like you’ve had a few!

Godsmack – 1000hp (Leaping Ahead #365)

[A guitar song (12)]

And so to the final two. This has been a good project and I’m quite pleased that I’ve made it to #365. Three hundred and sixty-five different themed tracks published daily from 1st January through to now, 30th December. Hope you’ve enjoyed it. One more to go…but then it’ll be time for ‘Epic 2017’. More about that tomorrow. For now though – here’s Godsmack. Great power in this this track – in terms of both the guitar work and the story behind the lyrics. In the end it’s all about the music and the music is all about the fans.

[A song from the 1990’s (2)]

Released in July 1991 as the first single from their eponymous fifth album, ‘Metallica’, the co-writen song with lyrics by James Hetfield deals with the concept of a child’s nightmares.┬áThe single achieved platinum certification for more than 1,000,000 copies shipped in the United States, spurring sales of over 30 million copies for Metallica and propelling the band to worldwide popularity. Acclaimed by critics, the song is featured in all of Metallica’s live albums and DVDs released after 1991 and is among Metallica’s most-played songs, having been performed live by the band more than 1,400 times!
