Article description

Appearing on black Vinyl in a gatefold.

'Since its formation in 2004, ALTER BRIDGE has consistently been one of the leading hard rock bands worldwide. Timeless melodies, outstanding guitar riffs, and always relevant lyrics have made the US Americans one of the most successful bands of the past two decades. Their seventh studio album, Pawns & Kings, seamlessly continues with 10 strong songs. In 2019, the band celebrated one of their biggest successes with the predecessor album Walk The Sky (#1 US Billboard Top Albums, #1 US Current Rock and Hard Music, #4 UK Official Charts, #1 UK Independent and Rock/Metal, #5 Official German Album Charts) before the world was profoundly changed by the global pandemic. The time spent apart by the members of ALTER BRIDGE ignited a new fire and created a desire for new musical intensity until the quartet – consisting of Myles Kennedy (vocals/guitar), Mark Tremonti (guitar/vocals), Brian Marshall (bass), and Scott Phillips (drums) – started working on the new album Pawns & Kings. In collaboration with longtime producer and collaborator Michael 'Elvis' Baskette, the album became a massive, impressive production designed for arenas and is another musical highlight of the experienced and well-rehearsed Kennedy/Tremonti dream team. On Pawns & Kings, ALTER BRIDGE deliver three epic anthems, two of which have a playing time of over six minutes: the thoughtful and absolutely epic title track 'Pawns & Kings', the dark-riffed, progressively influenced 'Sin After Sin', and the emotional eight-and-a-half-minute 'Fable Of The Silent Son'. 'Silver Tongue' is introduced by a gripping riff that leads into one of the most captivating choruses in the band's history – Myles Kennedy sings: 'Truth of a crime. You can't outrun. Under the spell of my silver tongue'. Tracks like 'Holiday' and 'Season Of Promise', on the other hand, are classic versatile and metallishly influenced ALTER BRIDGE rock revelations that have enchanted fans for a generation now. Songs like opening track 'This Is War', 'Dead Among The Living', and 'Last Man Standing' emphasize the harder side of a band that presents itself at its peak throughout the entire playing time. In the uplifting 'Stay', lead guitarist Mark Tremonti takes over lead vocals – a constellation that was first heard on the fourth album, Fortress (2013), and has since repeatedly shown the versatility of the band and its individual musicians. After nearly 20 celebrated career years, Pawns & Kings is a musical revelation from ALTER BRIDGE, who continue to soar from highlight to highlight and touch and inspire people worldwide with their outstanding creativity.'
