Al­ter Bridge

Live At The Royal Al­bert Hall NaPalm

Classic Rock - - Reviews - Han­nah may Kil­roy

Orches­tra adds oomph to those mam­moth riffs.

Al­ter Bridge’s an­themic arena rock is both heavy and heart­burst­ingly emo­tional, their back cat­a­logue brim­ming with melodic hooks and their live shows no­to­ri­ously tight. It re­ally is no sur­prise that

they’ve jumped on the rock Royal Al­bert Hall band­wagon (they’re all at it, from Nine Inch Nails to Ghost), and, as ex­pected, those cho­ruses along with an orches­tra are spell­bind­ing.

In this live CD/DVD pack­age the full live per­for­mance is bro­ken up with be­hind-thescenes footage, in­ter­views and in­sight into how the Par­al­lax Orches­tra pre­pared to ac­com­pany the songs. In­deed the likes of the acous­tic Won­der­ful Life and the up­lift­ing Lover are given ex­tra zing, and vo­cal­ist Myles Kennedy gives a shout-out to the “rock star” con­duc­tor and mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Si­mon Dob­son.

A real treat for fans.
