The Story Behind The Song: Alter Bridge's Metalingus

Mark Tremonti reflects on the fan favourite that helped crown them champions

We wrote it in a day

“We started Alter Bridge when Creed was coming to an end. Me and Scott Phillips [drums] were sick of everything going on on a personal level. I wrote as much as I could and had demos for about half the record like Broken Wings and In Loving Memory before I started searching for a singer – I didn’t feel I was strong enough to be the singer of the band. We finally found Myles [Kennedy, vocals] and got into writing. Metalingus came from us jamming together. It all started with that main verse but it came together really quickly. I think we wrote it in a day.”
