* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''One Day Remains'' is much heavier on the PostGrunge and oftentimes considered the only album they obviously sound like Music/{{Creed}} on. A couple of songs, like the title track and "Metalingus" had hints of what they'd become. Those types of songs tend to dominate albums released after it.



* LighterAndSofter: ''The Last Hero'' compared to ''Fortress'', not being as heavy and often having more melodic songs. The band itself described it as ''Blackbird'' meets ''Fortress'' prior to its release.



* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Their radio friendly tunes are usually a 5 or 6, but their faster works like "Metalingus", "Ties That Bind" and certain guitar solos tread into a 7. The "hard" 7's (borderline 8's) have only gotten more common later into their discography.

* NewSoundAlbum:
** ''Blackbird'' saw them sporting a more general AlternativeMetal and HardRock sound compared to ''One Day Remains''.
** ''AB III'' was overall darker and heavier with a subtle ProgressiveMetal tinge.
** ''Fortress'' is an almost pure metal record, with very few ballads (the softer songs on this one are more just HardRock songs) and a very strong ThrashMetal edge. It also bumped up the ProgressiveMetal influence considerably.
** ''The Last Hero'' combines the more technical songwriting of ''Fortress'' with ''Blackbird'''s overall songwriting style, and is generally not as heavy as ''Fortress''.

*** "I Know It Hurts" is a typical Tremonti-style Heavy song, but the lyrics are surprisingly comforting, despite the melody sounding quite dark.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Myles' voice is essentially hard rock wailing ala [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant]], grunge breathiness with a hint of soul. Mark's playing is basically {{prog|ressiveRock}}gy {{Alternative|Metal}} SpeedMetal with just a bit of blues, Spanish guitar and southern twang making surprise appearances. The rhythm section can have some progressive tendencies as well.
