New Queensryche Song – Where Dreams Go To Die

QueensrycheAah, now this is cool! Check out the video below to hear another new Queensryche song, called Where Dreams Go To Die, which features a classic QR twin-guitar attack, complete with cool clean-toned verses, harmony lines and all that other fun stuff you expect from a Queensryche track. And of course it’s always great to hear Michael Wilton’s heavy rhythm work, but I’m really digging the renewed sense of vigour in Scott Rockenfield’s drumming. Scott Rock has long been one of my favourite drummers and he sounds really free and energised here. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album! Queensryche’s self-titled album – the first with Todd La Torre on vocals – will be released on June 25. Pre-order it here. Read More …

Rising West: 4/5 of Queensryche form new band


There have been rumours of dyschord within Queensryche for a while, with reports that the rest of the band aren’t so comfortable with some of the creative decisions of Geoff Tate (the Cabaret tours, cruise ship gigs, Dedicated To Chaos, etc). So it’s no big surprise that four of the band’s members – guitarists Michael Wilton and Parker Lundgren, drummer Scott Rockenfield and bass player Eddie Jackson – have decided to form another band while Tate works on his next solo album. What is a surprise is that the singer they’ve chosen is Todd La Torre of Crimson Glory, who is capable of perhaps the most spot-on Geoff Tate impersonation I’ve ever heard.
