QUEENSRŸCHE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM “THE VERDICT” / BAND ANNOUNCES SPRING HEADLINE U.S. TOUR!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on October 29, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

From Queensrÿche facebook:

Bellevue, Washington – October 29, 2018 – Rock icons Queensrÿche have just announced their newest album “The Verdict” out March 1st via Century Media Records. The band’s forthcoming release was produced, mixed and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Iced Earth, Hatebreed) at Uberbeatz in Lynwood, WA, Planet-Z in Wilbraham, MA and Watershed Studio in Seattle, WA. Pre-orders and formats will be announced soon. In the meantime, the band has a Pledge pre-order campaign currently running here: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/queensryche2

“I’m extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish on this record,” states Queensrÿche vocalist Todd La Torre about The Verdict. “The relentless dedication and hard work of everyone involved has been very rewarding. I am excited and looking forward to it no longer just belonging to us, but belonging to the world. We hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!”

Michael “Whip” Wilton (guitar) adds: “The Verdict is the most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time. I couldn’t possibly be more excited for everyone to hear this.”

To support The Verdict, Queensrÿche have also announced their spring U.S. headline tour today with special guests Fates Warning. The Cringe will be joining both bands on select dates. The tour will kick off on March 2nd in Orlando, making stops in major markets such as New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles, and will wrap on April 3rd in Seattle. The band recently finished a run supporting SCORPIONS this past September. For more information on upcoming tour dates and to purchase tickets, visit the band’s website here: http://www.queensrycheofficial.com/tour-dates/

The Verdict follows the bands most recent release, Condition Hüman, received rave reviews from outlets such as Loudwire, KNAC, About.com, and more. The 2015 release debuted on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart at #5 with over 14,000 units sold first week and 100,000 albums sold globally to date.

Queensrÿche have secured a triumphant legacy as one of hard rock’s most respected and celebrated acts in the industry, selling over 30 million albums around the world across in the span of their 30-plus year career. Queensrÿche’s stone cold classic debut full-length, The Warning, and the badass monster sophomore release, Rage for Order, reignited the flames of heavy, progressive, melodic hard rock and metal. With the release of the band’s third album, Operation: Mindcrime, catapulted the band into mainstream success, single-handedly redefining the concept album and charged into the Top 40. A precision collection of near-perfect songs pushed landmark masterpiece Empire to triple platinum.

“Silent Lucidity”, off of the fourth LP, earned the band their second and third Grammy nominations, plus five nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards, where Queensrÿche picked up the Viewer’s Choice Award. Following the massive success of Empire, the band released, Promised Land, which entered the charts at #3 and became another platinum selling record. Adding to their successes, Queensryche have dominated Rock Radio with hits like “Jet City Woman”, “Another Rainy Night (Without You)”, “Real World”, “I AM I”, “Bridge”, and “Sign of the Times”.

Now, with the band’s 16th full-length album on the way, Queensrÿche is looking to continue to dominate the heavy metal scene.

The only official release to capture this, however, is 1989’s live album, Saints Will Conquer, until now. Carpe Noctum was captured at the band’s 2015 Wacken Festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

For a first preview of Carpe Noctum, the live version of “Aftermath” is now available exclusively for pledgers at PledgeMusic: pledgemusic.com/armoredsaint, where the album can also be preordered in various formats and bundles, with every “pledge”/purchase receiving a digital download of the tracks, plus behind-the-scenes content, including footage from Wacken 2015, plus 2016’s Ozzfest, Queensrÿche appearances, and more.

Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day Is: QUEENSRŸCHE “Guardian” (Official Video)

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, rock music with tags , , , , , on October 27, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Queensryche - promo band pic - 2015 - #33TLMMGMSASCRC

QUEENSRŸCHE – It’s been far too long since I’ve posted a Metal Pick Of The Day. What better way to kickstart it all once again, with the magnificent QUEENSRŸCHE! Guardian is a pumped-up and convincingly strong song from QUEENSRŸCHE ‘s recently released studio album: Condition Hüman (Century Media).

With Guardian, Todd LaTorre nails it on vocals and QUEENSRŸCHE are as powerful than they’ve ever been, in my Metal opinion! I love listening to Scott Rockenfield on drums and he is killer on this track. I can go on and on. Instead, crank the living hell out of Guardian below and Metal Be Thy Name!

Queensrÿche “Fallout” (Official Video): Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Queensryche - album promo flyer - band pic - 2013 - #13

Queensrÿche – At year’s end, the ever legendary Queensrÿche are poised to have their new and self-titled album on Metal Odyssey’s Best Of 2013 lists and for legit reasons: Queensrÿche has been rejuvenated with newfound (and very welcomed) passion and vibes of Heavy Rockin’ electricity, which I hear and feel within their new songs; and Fallout is just one fantastic example!

With new (and accomplished) lead vocalist Todd LaTorre, the energy and sound of Queensrÿche has been refueled on their newest release; while my Metal expectations for this new incarnation of Queensrÿche have been unbelievably satiated at least two-fold! A memorable Queensrÿche album it is, so I’ve been convinced. Metal be thy name!

Queensrÿche Fallout Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

CHERRI BOMB… ROCKS.

__________________________________

Say it isn’t so, Queensrÿche. With all the feuding going on in the Queensrÿche camp right now, I am not even going to elaborate nor will I take sides. I’m loyal to Geoff Tate, which makes me a “tater” and I’m loyal to the members of Queensrÿche, which makes me a “rÿcher”… or something like that I guess.

Am I taking the easy way out here with writing about the whole Queensrÿche fiasco? Nope. I’m just not going to run Metal Odyssey like an F’n tabloid, that’s all.

Here’s living Metal proof that Stone is a “tater”!

Here’s living Metal proof that Stone is a “rÿcher”!

Best Of The Rest Awards For 2011 – Now that the Metal Odyssey “Best Of 2011” lists are posted for Rock, Hard Rock and Metal albums, along with Hard Rock and Metal Songs respectively, I turn my attention to Metal Odyssey’s Best Of The Rest Awards. What exactly are the Best Of The Rest? Scroll down, read on and enjoy! Oh… and…. Metal be thy name.

BEST METAL COVER SONG

AS I LAY DYING – HELLION / ELECTRIC EYE

(Metal Blade Records)

Tim Lambesis vocally made this Judas Priest classic his very own. Electric Eye being sung in Death Metal tones is, well, F’n fun to hear! As a Metal bonus, this band gives a 100% effort in giving Hellion / Electric Eye their deserved Classic Metal respect. To be street about it, As I Lay Dying kicks Metal ass with this classic intro and cover song.

BEST ALBUM COVER ART (TIE)

PENTAGRAM – LAST RITES

(Metal Blade Records)

ARTIST: MO MOUSSA

Choosing the best album cover art is, like music itself: subjective. There are many, many album covers from 2011 that I adore. I chose the PENTAGRAM and HAVOK album covers due to my staring at them for semi-long periods of time. Does that sound funny? I don’t think it’s funny. Okay, maybe a tad funny.

The Grim Reaper has always been the dark and sinister mascot of Metal. Mo Moussa captured that old school Metal look with this Last Rites art and I extend my Metal appreciation for that.

HAVOK – TIME IS UP

(Candlelight Records)

ARTIST: HALSEY SWAIN

The skull on this macabre skeleton is chilling! The attention to detail is incredible on this HAVOK cover, with the lightning outside the window and other skeletons in the backdrop adding to the overall horror appeal. From what lead vocalist & guitarist David Sanchez told me, (during a Hard Rock Hideout interview), Halsey Swain actually put brush to canvas for this ultra-fabulous Time Is Up album cover. Old School strikes once again! Hey… if it wasn’t for Old School, there would be no new school.

BEST BOX SET

DORO – 25 YEARS IN ROCK … AND STILL GOING STRONG

(Nuclear Blast)

Whoa what a box set this is! A 16 page, full color, hardcover concert photo book. Two DVD’s, (1 concert & 1 documentary) with 16 pages of more incredible concert photos & cool liner notes. 1 live CD. It’s all DORO, The Queen of Heavy Metal, her amazing voice and her band!

This amazing DORO package features the celebration of her 25th Anniversary concert on December 13, 2008, at the ISS Dome in Düsseldorf, Germany, (Doro’s hometown). Pure quality, from beginning to end, with both the DVD’s and live CD. The concert photo book is so hard to put down. A timeless and priceless DORO box set for me.

BEST PERSONAL METAL MOMENT

Queensrÿche

When I received the assignment from Rob Rockitt, over at HARD ROCK HIDEOUT, to cover Queensrÿche live at The Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown, Pennsylvania… I was psyched out of my Metal mind! Metal Odyssey staff photographer Tom Coderre and I had a blast on this evening of Queensrÿche Metal.

Yes, this was my Best Metal Moment Of 2011, however, this was the Best Metal Moment Of My Life as well. To personally meet Geoff Tate and each member of Queensrÿche, back on August 2nd, 2011, made for Rock ‘N Roll dreams to come true. I personally thank each member of Queensrÿche for their being incredibly professional and polite. This band kicked ass onstage that night too! Metal be thy name they did.

I also thank Tom Coderre for being my Metal Buddy on that momentous evening and documenting so professionally this Queensrÿche concert and personal Metal moment. Thank you Rob Rockitt and Hard Rock Hideout for the golden opportunity to cover & meet the legendary Queensrÿche.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL & LONG LIVE METAL \m/\m/

Stone.

Queensrÿche – 10 Great Songs CD: A Potent Compilation Spanning A Legendary Discography

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, progressive metal, progressive rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 27, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Queensrÿche – A brand new greatest hits compilation spanning the legendary discography from Queensrÿche was released on June 14h, 2011, via Capitol Records. This new Queensrÿche compilation is titled 10 Great Songs. I won’t argue that these are truly, “10 Great Songs” from this iconic band! 10 Great Songs is a running series on Capitol Records, where many other bands are having their greatest hits compiled and released as well. This is a cool compilation series that Capitol Records has embarked on, especially if you want those 10 songs that a band is most famously known for.

I stumbled upon this CD while conducting my weekly walk-through of the CD aisle at my local Super Walmart. I already own The Best Of Queensrÿche: Sign Of The Times (Capitol/2007) along with each of their studio albums, therefore did I buy this 10 Great Songs CD? Um, okay, yes I did buy it. You see, once I saw it on the rack, with a $5 (U.S.) price sticker on it, I grabbed it. $5 new! Heck, the cover photo of Queensrÿche on this 10 Great Songs has never been on any other album of theirs… to the best of my Metal knowledge. Throw in that fact that I am very weak at saying “no” to purchasing any CD of a core favorite band of mine and I’m cooked. Just stick a Metal fork in me.

Queensrÿche has 12 studio albums in their storied discography, (with 2007’s Take Cover being a cover song album). When deciding upon which songs best represent the legendary Metal career of Queensrÿche, compilation producer Michael Murphy has nailed it down… and the track listing here is very impressive. (See track listing below). Queen Of The Reich and The Lady Wore Black will always be my sentimental favorites, for these are the two songs that kick-started the career of Queensrÿche, both appearing on their debut S/T EP from 1983.

I’ve seen this Queensrÿche CD selling new for $6.97 (U.S.) on Amazon.com. That’s practically $2 more than what Super Walmart is selling it for… plus you have to pay a shipping cost on Amazon.com too. Yes, Stone is a Metal bargain hunter, even if I do buy CD’s with songs that I already own on them. Metal be thy name.

Queensrÿche – Back on August 2nd, 2011, I and staff photographer Tom Coderre went to cover the Queensrÿche concert at Allentown Pennsylvania’s Crocodile Rock Cafe for the ultra cool  HARD ROCK HIDEOUT. When HRH’s Rob Rockitt gave us the assignment we were overjoyed! Why not head over to Hard Rock Hideout and read for yourself, the concert review I wrote while checking out some very cool photos of “live” Queensrÿche… courtesy of Tom Coderre. Just click on that big header link below to take you there! Metal be thy name!

MetalOdysseyOzzy Osbourne, the Heavy Metal Prince of Darkness. Ozzy Osbourne – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with Black Sabbath. Honestly, I revere the living hell out of this Heavy Metal legend. I did get to see Ozzy Osbourne live in concert twice during my lifetime. For me, those two concerts were unbelievable, with Metallica opening up for Ozzy in New Haven Connecticut, (at the spooky New Haven Coliseum) – it was The Ultimate Sin Tour for Ozzy and Metallica was promoting their legendary Master of Puppets album. The other Ozzy concert I saw had Queensryche open for Ozzy in Springfield, Massachusetts, (at the Springfield Civic Center), on this same Ultimate Sin Tour. Alright, so it is obvious I think the Metal world of Ozzy Osbourne… fine. However, by process of elimination, there has to be my least favorite Ozzy Osbourne song out there and there is one. I do not think much of the song, uh, ballad So Tired from Ozzy’s Bark At The Moon album. This song, ugh, ballad is responsible for my distaste of most Heavy Metal ballads ever released since, by any band. This album was released on December 10, 1983. Don’t get me wrong here, the Bark At The Moon album as a whole, is unreal good. Three songs on this album are incredible for me… Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel, You’re No Different and of course – Bark At The Moon. These three Ozzy songs I can hold up on a Metal pedestal forever. Plus, Jake E. Lee on guitar is a Metal bonus to listen to.

So Tired is a song that in my Metal opinion, is overwhelmingly dull and depressing and does absolutely nothing but annoy me beyond belief. Who exactly is supposed to be so tired in this song? Is it Ozzy himself? Someone that Ozzy knows? I really do not care in the darn least who is tired. I get tired too, yet I never whine about it like Ozzy did in this song. Sure, maybe the tired theme was about waiting around for a love lost… who cares. So Tired is a perfect example of what happens when a Heavy Metal icon decides to go the Pop and Bubble Gum Music route with a song. Sappy city is open for tourists with So Tired. Get out the kleenex, So Tired is now playing… sniffle, sniffle, I am so moved. The orchestration in this song only annoys me more.

To me, So Tired just never seemed to fit in with the Bark At The Moon album. So Tired is a downer in the midst of some riveting Heavy Metal songs, a huge let down, like the depressed dude at a party trying to bring everyone else down with him. The video for So Tired, (which was on MTV too often back in the day), was so ridiculous that even I felt embarrassed for Ozzy. When the Bark At The Moon album was reissued, So Tired should have been omitted from the track list… it is that lousy – for me. In my Metal opinion, So Tired is the lowest moment of Ozzy Osbournes unparalleled and ultra legendary Heavy Metal career.
