Florida-based rock quartet Alter Bridge is currently on the road for the first leg of their North American “Pawns & Kings” tour, promoting their most recent album of the same name. They stopped in Toronto this past Saturday night for a sold-out show at History, the relatively new 2,500-capacity concert venue in the city’s east end. With the addition of Mammoth WVH as the supporting act, fans were sure to be in for a night of heavy-hitting, guitar-driven hard rock.
It was a fantastic night of music by some of the best musicians in the modern rock scene. Alter Bridge and Mammoth WVH are both incredibly solid bands, and each one provided a spectacular set of tunes that got heads banging and adrenaline pumping. Both bands also did an exceptional job of maintaining a balance between catchy songwriting and technical virtuosity. Alter Bridge just announced another run of American dates on the current tour, so they certainly show no signs of slowing down any time soon. It also won’t be long before the rising stars of Mammoth WVH are headlining their own large tours, so if you’re a rock music fan, do not miss your chance to catch this absolutely stacked double bill.
