“One Day Remains” by Alter Bridge

Artist: Alter Bridge
Title: “One Day Remains”
Label: Wind-Up Records
Release Date: 8/10/2004
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 8/10

When I heard that the members of Creed minus Singer Scott Stapp would be forming a band of their own I expected very simply “Creed 2”. This was easy for how could a band where the core writer and co founder of Creed would be forming this new project. Mark Tremonti was already ready with this recording just a few months after the announcement of Creed’s breakup was announced. Joining Tremonti (who would be on guitar still) would be Scott Phillips (drums) and Brian Marshall (bass). Mark and Scott had been in Creed for all three albums while Marshall had left after “Human Clay”. Joining the three on vocals would be Myles Kennedy formerly of the Mayfield Four. As I listened to the CD it was immediately apparent that this group would not be an exact copy of Creed and I based this primarily on the difference in vocal register of Kennedy. While Stapp held a deeper resonance that was often compared to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Kennedy seems to be able to reach notes that Chris Cornell would pull off with ease. A lot of the music is Creed-like and I expected this much for ones writing style would usually take some larger amount of time to change into something different. It is my belief that had Creed remained together that some of these songs would have been on the new album. The similar musical sound surely can appeal to the existing Creed fans. The name “Alter Bridge” is drawn from a personal point in Tremonti’s childhood based on paths and choices.
