Biography

Almost thirty years ago, Queensrÿche forced a worldwide breakthrough with their acclaimed concept album ‘Operation: Mindcrime’. Two years later follow-up ‘Empire’ solidified their status as a progressive metal band while hit single ‘Silent Lucidity’ resonated with music lovers in general. As was the case for so many other bands, their popularity waned with the advent of grunge and alternative rock. Meanwhile both guitarist Chris DeGarmo and Geoff Tate have left the band, the latter following a protracted legal battle and a period in which both Tate and his former band mates performed under the Queensrÿche moniker. Tate was replaced with former Crimson Glory vocalist Todd La Torre and the release of ‘Queensrÿche’ (2013) marked a new beginning for the band. Much to the delight of the early fans, follow-up ‘Condition Hüman’ hearkens back to the early material with changing time signatures and progressive song structures. (#GMM17)
