Press release:

 

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music srl is excited to announce the release of “Resurrection”, the new album from Operation: Mindcrime, the brainchild of legendary vocalist Geoff Tate. The album is set for a worldwide release on September 23, 2016.

“Resurrection” is the second part of the musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate. Following one year after the release of the debut album in September 2015, Operation: Mindcrime continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensrÿche vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen.

“The album “Resurrection” is the second part of our three album presentation or trilogy. It continues the story that began on the first album “The Key” with the near death experience of the lead character known as “H” and his subsequent recovery of the missing encryption key. With the Key finally in his possession, “H” has everything he needs to finally launch his long awaited project called “The New Reality”. Or does he…,” explains Geoff Tate.

Tate continued, “I’m excited for people to hear and experience “Resurrection” because I think it answers some of the questions that were posed in the first album, “The Key”. Musically, it offers some of the most diverse and challenging material that I’ve ever written.”

Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three The GRAMMYs nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nomimations, and one MTV Video Music Awards along the way. The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman." By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. From Mindcrime and Promised Land through 2009's overlooked gem American Soldier - Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans - Tate's 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results.

"Tate's 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results."

That's a posh way of saying 2 good albums and a load of tosh, isn't it?

 

 

2 good albums? Only 2? You're out of your phuking mind if you believe Queensryche only released 2 good albums with Tate. Everything up to Empire was not only good, they were great!

Just noticed that they neglected to mention 2011's "Dedicated to Chaos" (QR's last album w/Tate) in this rundown. Maybe Geoff's forgotten about it already. Lord knows everyone else has... :rofl2:

 

 

Also, a totally random thought: how many bands have used "Resurrection" as an album title now? Off the top of my head I can think of two (Halford and Venom) but I'm sure there must be others....

American Soldier was crap.

Never even heard it. Didn't bother.

There is a lot going on in that 4 minutes. Almost like they tried to throw in every element from every QR song they could into the one song.

 

For me anything outside of The Lady Wore Black or even Jet City Women is a no thanks when it comes to QR or GT.

You didn't like the original OPERATION MINDCRIME?

 

My God it's absolutely brilliant.

Neither song is inconceivably bad (like the previous album was) but still, would you actually bother with this? I wouldn't.

Does anyone really care about this band? It seems to me they get a lot of credit for very little great output.....

 

Great output?????

 

Where????

 

All I've ever heard from this band is pure rubbish!!

Wait, what? Rubbish?

 

Sure, the recent stuff is crap, but the early material (The Warning, Rage for Order, Operation Mindcrime, and even Empire) are great material IMO. A couple being essential classics!

We're talking about OM not Queensryche. Or are we?

 

If we are talking about Queensryche, I liked everything up to Promised Land. All garbage since. And OM picks up the garbage-a-thon.

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
