Vocalist Austin Dickinson of the UK based metalcore band Rise To Remain spoke with me recently about the their debut release, City Of Vultures. The band has had quite an exciting year,’ they were voted Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, they signed a major record deal with EMI records and they recorded their debut with famed metal producer Colin Richardson. On top of all these accomplishments they also had the good fortune to open for Iron Maiden at the beginning of the year…

It’s hard to believe, but Alter Bridge has been together now for seven years and have crafted a fairly solid career for themselves. It’s never easy starting a new band after being in a highly popular one, especially a group like Creed which sold tens of millions of records. No longer is Alter Bridge really thought of as Creed lite though, as the group has done well in distinguishing themselves from their former band.
