The Queensrÿche recipe: heady prog-rock, full-bore metal, and politically conscious lyricism
Led by: former Crimson Glory and Rising West frontman Todd La Torre, flanked by original members Michael Wilton, Scott Rockenfield, and Eddie Jackson
The band’s most famous work: the concept album Operation Mindcrime
Its concept: a heroin addict wakes up in the hospital and struggles to remember what got him there
Non-Mindcrime hits: the ponderous “Silent Lucidity,” the thundering “Jet City Woman,” the forceful “En Force”
Queensrÿche: the band’s 2013 release, which AllMusic described as “the album most Queensrÿche fans have desired for the last 15 years” and preschoolers described as “really hard to pronounce”
Its concept: None. “Each song is its own animal,” explained La Torre.
The band’s latest album: Condition Hüman, a record that’s been in the works since before 2013’s Queensrÿche
Its concept: Songwriting where “melody is key,” shares Wilton. “We don’t want to have an album with filler songs. We want every song to be quality.”
A few of its hard-hitting yet accessible songs you may hear: “Arrow of Time,” “Hourglass,” and the title track
