Review of Alter Bridge’s new EP “Walk The Sky 2.0” out November 6, 2020

 

 

 

On the heels of the 2019 release of “Walk The Sky”, Alter Bridge’s sixth studio album, the band releases the EP “Walk The Sky 2.0”. “Walk The Sky 2.0” is a collection of six of the bands favorite live tracks from the 2019 tour plus a song written during the COVID-19 Lockdown, “Last Rites”.

 

“Last Rites”, the number one track starts out with the heavy riffs and almost a feels like an alternate intro into “Slither” by Velvet Revolver, but quickly changes into all Alter Bridge. The lyric content sounds of desperation and loss of control with the message, be careful what you wish for as life as you know it may be gone in a flash with no last rites. Truly a sentiment I felt as I watched the destruction and looting over the summer and early fall.

 

 

 

The second track “Wouldn’t You Rather” and anthem of living true to yourself. Really showcases Myles Kennedy’s vocal prowess and range and Mark Tremonti’s guitar intro is exceptionally and hard hitting throughout the track.

 

 

 

 

 

Overall the live recordings are powerful and pose the questions deep in your soul of confusion, loss, and even betrayal which I revealed after thoroughly reviewing.

The “Walk The Sky 2.0” EP is an exceptional collection of heavy Alter Bridge recordings in a live setting, this EP is ranked a 9 out of 10 in my opinion. I was left with wanting more and anticipating seeing Alter Bridge Live again!
