Alter Bridge keep the energy high with the second single from Fortress.

'Cry of Achilles' is the opening track to the album and it's as solid as anything I've heard from the band. It begins with a nice little finger-picked acoustic intro before busting into one of Mark Tremonti's best riffs to date.

There's no denying the musicianship within Alter Bridge. Every member of the band is solid in their own right but a lot of times, stellar musicianship doesn't translate to hits. It's been a few years since Alter Bridge have had a Number One, maybe 'Cry of Achilles' will eventually top the charts. Give it a listen and tell us if you think the band have delivered a hit this time around.
