PostSubject: Queensryche's new album   Wed Jun 19, 2013 4:07 pm

is surprisingly fucking great.  I'm talking about the "real" Queensryche, of course (aka, not the one with Geoff Tate).  It's honestly right up there with their first 5 records and is now on my top list of the year so far.  Todd La Torre is fucking flawless on this record, too.  He sounds more like Geoff Tate than Geoff Tate.

This band is still around? Ew

And why is the 'real' Queensryche excluding Geoff Tate? Wasn't he their original singer?

Yes, but for the last like 4 or 5 records he's taken over the band and hired outside musicians to write all the music.  Basically, Tate is a control freak and didn't allow anyone in the band to write any music, hence why they haven't put out anything good since Promised Land.

Recently, the original members of Queensryche kicked out Tate and found a new singer.  Tate got mad and formed a new "Queensryche" that's just a bunch of randomly hired musicians.  So right now there are two bands going by Queensryche, one of which is composed of almost all original members + a new singer, and another that's composed of Geoff Tate and some other people.

I heard it's good. For some reason though, I've just never been that big of a Queensryche. I'm willing to try again with this new album though. I'll listen to it later.

Get Empire and Promised Land.  Everyone jacks off over Operation Mindcrime, but I've never been a huge fan of it.  Empire fucking rules though, jesus christ.

And if you're a fan of Nevermore, they ape Queensryche pretty frequently.  They ripped the political spoken word thing directly from the song "Empire" when they did "Inside Four Walls".  The structure of those two songs is identical, lol.

Simply posting links doesn't make them clickable on the forum anymore; here's a clickable link to stream the album - http://www.metalinsider.net/new-music/queensryche-streaming-new-self-titled-album-in-its-entirety


Anyways, I love Operation Mindcrime because it's a fucking awesome album. It's catchy and upbeat, and also structurally interesting from a musical standpoint. Aside from that I have The Promised Land, which I didn't like nearly as much, though I might have to give it another listen at some point. I'm streaming this new album now, and it's pretty cool so far, partway into the second track. Getting rid of Geoff Tate was a great idea for the band.

Man, I cannot stop listening to Spore and A World Without.  Beyond catchy.

Isn't that illegal what he's doing? I mean touring under another band's name? I guess it would depend who owns the name.

Also Empire is a terrible album. Its the only album I've ever fallen asleep to.

Sounds pretty cheesy like everything else Queensryche's done. (Thought they were badass when I was 15 though.)

But had nobody told me this isn't Tate on vox, I would have just assumed it's him.

I gave Queensryche another shot tonight. Still didn't like it. It's weird because I'm a big progressive rock/metal guy, but I just can't seem to get into Queensryche.

They're awaiting a court decision. Afterward there will be only one Queensryche.
