With two more weeks to go until ALTER BRIDGE’s much anticipated album Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities (out on September 8 worldwide via Napalm Records) will finally be released, the band has released another live track from the upcoming 3-disc collection.

The live version of one of the band’s most popular tracks, “Metalingus” is available online here:


Fans who pre-order the digital version of the album will receive an instant download of the track as well.


The studio version of the song “Metalingus” was originally recorded for ALTER BRIDGE‘s debut album One Day Remains. The song reached a whole new audience when it was selected as the official entrance theme of WWE superstar Edge back in 2004! In the years following, the song was played weekly on television right up until the day he retired in 2011 and is still used every time he returns even now.


Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities is available for pre-order worldwide now! The new release is being offered in different formats from a standard 3 CD digipak up to an incredible DELUXE Cardboard BOX limited to 1000 units incl. 3 CD Digipack, DVD in Slipcase, O2 Laminate + Lanyard, Guitar Strings from Mark and Myles, guitar picks, a patch, and buttons (picture attached). Any of these configurations can be ordered HERE.
