Must be Tate's version.

 

Yep, it is. You must read that write-up:

 

"25 years after the Mindcrime revolution, the Rÿche returns with their 12th studio album - a new chapter in the epic saga of one of the most critically adored and commercially successful metal bands of all time!

 

Vocal powerhouse and frontman Geoff Tate leads the HEAVIEST Rÿche ever, including longtime guitarist Kelly Gray plus newly acquired bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot) and drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO)!

 

Guest appearances by K.K. Downing (Judas Priest), Chris Poland (Megadeth), Ty Tabor (King s X), Paul Bostaph (Slayer), Lita Ford, Brad Gillis (Night Ranger), Dave Meniketti (Y&T) and more!

 

Packaged with bonus tracks - 4 Queensrÿche classics, newly recorded, including the smash hit single Silent Lucidity!

 

I expect the forthcoming effort to be one of our BEST YET! - Geoff Tate

 

After 30+ years of music making, most bands are content to simply trudge along, putting out the same old type of album again and again, trying to recapture the glory of days past. Not this band, not Queensrÿche. With every new release, Geoff Tate and company push themselves into new directions, new sounds, and dizzying new heights. The result is that Queensrÿche is just as vital and musically relevant today as ever they ever were. Even when they revisit older ideas, as they did in 2006 with the long awaited sequel to Operation: Mindcrime, the result was one of the most thrilling releases of their extraordinary career. Now, a new chapter is about to be written, a new album, and a new line-up that unites frontman Tate with a stellar group of new players and seasoned vets. Arguably the heaviest version of Queensrÿche ever assembled, the band not only wrote and recorded the 10 brand new songs on Frequency Unknown, but also will be hitting the road to perform the entire Operation: Mindcrime album at select venues across the nation in celebration of that album s 25th anniversary. Make no mistake about it, Queensrÿche is still a musical force to be reckoned with and their legions of fans will undoubtedly be celebrating in 2013! --Official Press Release"

Note the prominent "F.U." on the cover. Real classy, Geoff.

 

Total dick move on his part... as soon as the "other" Queensryche announced that they'd signed with Century Media today, Geoff's announcement about his record went out within hours.

 

That said, I will probably end up buying both CDs... cuz once they go into court and hash this out, one side or the other is gonna lose the right to use the "Queensryche" name ... so their CD will probably be pulled/go OOP and become an instant collector's item. :D

I agree that could happen but with Jason Slater producing the Tate album will probably sound like the last few Ryche albums. I hope I'm wrong.

But wait, it just keeps getting funnier!! (From Blabbermouth)

 

Guitarist Glen Drover — who left Geoff Tate's version of QUEENSRŸCHE before playing a single show with the band — will join the Todd La Torre-fronted QUEENSRŸCHE on stage this coming Thursday, March 7 at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to perform the QUEENSRŸCHE classic "Take Hold Of The Flame".

 

In a posting on hisTwitter account, Glen wrote: "Going up onstage with the REAL QUEENSRŸCHE and play 'Take Hold Of The Flame' this thursday at the Phoenix in Toronto. Going to be fun stuff!"

 

Tate must've done something to really cheese Drover off... :rofl2:

Not as bad as I thought it would be. The sound is shit, but that can be the system I'm using at the moment. The solo albeit speedy, is a freakin' mess.

Even Tate's voice seems strained, he was always on of my top vocalists....how the mighty have fallen.

 

I'd never buy this, but I pictured something much worse the way some were bashing it.

Nope, won't be buying this (even if I did see it going cheaply second-hand) ... it's just a 'nothing' song ... :(

I actually disagree, this is not bad and is the best song with Tate on vocals since Promised Land.

So my question is, why would he disband the band and then ROCK again??? Dumb.

Right

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
