Queensrÿche - Queensrÿche [2CD Limited Edition] (2013)

Queensrÿche is an American progressive heavy metal band formed in 1982 in Bellevue, Washington. The
band has released twelve studio albums, one EP and several DVDs, and
continues to tour and record. The original lineup consisted of vocalist
Geoff Tate, guitarists Chris DeGarmo and Michael Wilton, bassist Eddie
Jackson and drummer Scott Rockenfield.

Queensrÿche has been successful in the progressive scene, having sold
over 20 million albums worldwide, including over 6 million albums in the
United States. The band received worldwide acclaim after the release of
their 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime, which is often considered one of
the greatest concept albums of all time. Their follow-up release,
Empire, released in 1990, was also very successful and included the hit
single "Silent Lucidity". The band has received three Grammy Award
nominations for songs off both albums; Rockenfield also received a
Grammy nomination outside of Queensrÿche.

In 1997, guitarist and primary songwriter DeGarmo left the band for
personal reasons. Over the years, his replacements have been Kelly Gray,
Mike Stone, and Parker Lundgren, respectively. Following a highly
publicized backstage altercation before a show in São Paulo, Brazil in
April 2012, Tate was fired from the band and replaced with Crimson Glory
singer Todd La Torre. In response to his dismissal, Tate and his wife
Susan (who served as the band's manager from 2005–2012) filed a lawsuit
in a Washington court, claiming that he was wrongfully terminated. The
ruling in the preliminary injunction was that until the court date in
November 2013, both parties are allowed to use the name Queensrÿche;
Tate has subsequently created his own lineup featuring former guitarist
Gray and members from bands including Blue Öyster Cult, Ozzy Osbourne,
Whitesnake, Dio, AC/DC and Quiet Riot. This version of Queensrÿche with
Geoff Tate has released the album Frequency Unknown on 23 April, while
the version of Queensrÿche with Todd La Torre is scheduled to release
their album Queensrÿche on 24 and 25 June (European and American release
date, respectively). Both bands have toured in 2013.

Twenty years is a long time to wait for a band to get its collective shit
together. Funny how one ugly line-up change and nine new songs can wash
away two decades’ worth of mind-numbing WTF frustration.

Gone is original vocalist Geoff Tate, and with him the fetters that
seemingly/supposedly steered the band into realms they were better off
not exploring if you grew up/into Queensrÿche’s debut EP and the four
albums that followed (The Warning, Rage For Order, Operation: Mindcrime
and Empire). Recharged with the entrance of ex-Crimson Glory singer Todd
La Torre, the band was able to get back to doing what they do best, and
the surprising end result is a record that falls nicely in line with
the aforementioned 4.5 ‘Ryche classics. Call it Rage For Order meets
Empire; an obnoxious claim to be sure, feel free to disagree, but it’s
pretty damn hard to refute.

This self-titled slab of faith-restoring metal boasts the return of the
almighty riff, twin guitar leads, and brazen in-your-face melodies. If
you remember being ear-wormed by ‘The Whisper’, ‘Empire’, ‘Walk In The
Shadows’, ‘Best I Can’ and ‘I Don’t Believe In Love’ way back when… it’s
like that. Scratch the short ‘X2’ and ‘Midnight Lullaby’ interludes as
unnecessary filler and what you’re left with is a record with truckloads
of potential to be as big of a deal as Empire was when the title track
exploded all over civilization in the ‘90s. ‘Where Dreams Go To Die’
eases folks in rather than kicking things off with a chest-beating
“We’re back!” and sets the stage for the clattering Rage For Order-ish
‘Spore’ (welcome back, Mr. Rockenfield), the nostalgia-flavoured and
altogether gorgeous ‘In This Light’ (the album’s ‘Another Rainy Night’),
and the middle-fingering melodic stomp of ‘Redemption’. Three songs in
and really, you have to wonder where the hell Wilton, Jackson and
Rockenfield have been hiding all these years. Hell knows their
performances (and that of guitarist Parker Lundgren) scream “old
school!” complete with shit-eating grin. ‘Vindication’ and ‘Don’t Look
Back’ sign in as the heaviest tracks on the record, with ‘Fallout’ as
the resident 4/4 rocker, while Sister Mary herself – vocalist Pamela
Moore – makes a return to the ranks on the ballad ‘A World Without’.
‘Open Road’ closing the proceedings with a similar vibe to the Rage
album’s ‘I Will Remember’, and if you’re a yesteryear Queensryche fan
it’s hard not to appreciate the weight and worth of what you’ve just

As for Todd La Torre, who has taken a huge amount of flak for stepping
in where he was needed, he sounds like a young and vibrant Geoff Tate.
The vocal resemblance in uncanny and it’s going to take at least one
more album before the naysayers drop the “clone” tag. Listen carefully,
though, and you’ll hear an aggression in his delivery that Tate never

The battle over the Queensrÿche name should end here with this album. It
isn’t Tate Hate talking, just a mile high stack of road signs pointing
to the victors’ path in a ridiculous war over who got it right. Tate
screwed himself and the life of a halfway decent solo album (Kings &
Thieves) by slapping together Frequency Unknown, leaving his former
bandmates more than enough room to walk all over him and reclaim a
