    For those who like hard rock and/or songs with good messages, Alter Bridge is the band for you!

    Seriously, these guys are amazing. Guitarist Mark Tremonti is sickeningly good. Their guitar riffs are so cool!

    The thing that hooked me into Alter Bridge was their song lyrics. Most hard rock bands are all gloom and doom and death... These guys really drive home a good point. Nothing like inspiration and hard rock combined!

    Anyone here already know Alter Bridge?

    I like them too. Not many people know about them, which is sad.

    I heard about them a few years ago, like two songs from them other than that not really..

    They sound a lot like Creed which isn't really a good thing to me and yes I know the band is mostly ex-creed members.

    They're guitar riffs make for good bass practice too. In my mind they're the rally-rock of my day. You really can't find anyone besides Alter Bridge and Boston that can rock hard and righteous.

    Yeah, they're pretty good. I wouldn't consider them hard rock though, more like alternative rock/post-grunge.

    Pretty good band. I have also been listening to them since the breakup of Creed, but just recently came across a song I hadn't heard before. Here is the Youtube release - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEqpSZwClBw
