We countdown the Alter Bridge and Creed shredder's top solo tunes!
Mark Tremonti is set to unleash his second full-length offering Cauterize on June 9, 2015 through his own FRET 12 label. It follows up 2012's stunning All I Was, which has become a much-lauded 21st century metal opus since release. Moreover, Cauterize also teams the Alter Bridge and Creed guitarist with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette yet again. This time around, with co-shredder Eric "ERock" Friedman, drummer Garrett Whitlock, and Wolfgang Van Halen on the bass, the quartet churned out an epic not only worthy of the All I Was legacy, but they also enough power to amp hard rock and heavy metal to another level. Cauterize will knock you out, and it's one of the best albums of this year. So, given the record's impending release, we countdown the ten best Mark Tremonti Solo Songs. [Note: This list is just the times that Tremonti has stepped out on his own outside of Creed and Alter Bridge.]
10 Best Mark Tremonti Solo Songs
Tremonti turned up on Sevendust's Chapter VII: Hope & Sorrow with a show-stopping performance, adding his signature intensity to this catchy collaboration. The longtime friends joined forces for an explosive and enigmatic anthem. This also marked one of the first times that fans at large really got the opportunity to hear Tremonti outside of Creed and Alter Bridge, almost hinting towards the solo career looming the wings.
Tremonti's virtuosity fuels this fleet-fingered Deep Purple cover with Michael Angelo Batio from Shred Force 1 (The Essential MAB). Receiving endorsement yet again from one of the world's most formidable shredders continues to reiterate Tremonti's six-string prowess.
