queensrycheWhoa! With week left until its release, Queensryche (that’s the version featuring the mighty Michael Wilton, Scott Rockenfield, Eddie Jackson, Parker Lundgren and new vocalist Todd La Torre), have put their new self-titled album up online for all to crank. And it’s killer. I especially like In This Light: with all the talk of how heavy this album was going to be, I was hoping they’d still find room for more melodic stuff. And they have! This album feels like a very, very good start indeed for this new era of Queensryche as a recording entity (they’ve already proven themselves on the stage) and I hope they make it down here to Oz on tour some time soon. You can listen on the band’s site here.
