“Isolation” comes off ALTER BRIDGE’s new album, “AB III”, which sold 28,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in North America on November 9 through Alter Bridge Recordings via EMI Label Services.
Another interesting aspect of the album is how well the band manages to incorporate some slower, atmospheric sections without ever resorting to balladry or without even having to soften their music up a whole lot. The best example of this is Succubus, a slow and crushing song which starts out aggressive but quickly calms down and turns into something much darker and more sinister
Also, I developed a dangerous cocaine habit living in LA, the difference was that now, when I found myself back in an autumn grey Stockholm I was no longer a celebrated rock star enjoying a couple of lines at the Rainbow – I was a simple junkie – scoring in the projects. Love was what eventually saved me.
