Queensryche = metals Pink Floyd / Massive band

Fellas. Do yourself a favour and download Queensryche. Such an important band. My best bud got me on them years ago and driving today they rocked me the whole way home.

Have you heard the Geof Tate imposter they got to replace him?  Sounds pretty spot on.

Silent Lucidity is amazing!

They had kind of a cool niche of their own for the time they were big. Not really heavy metal, but not gay-ish glam metal either. More of a metal-ish rock band. Wasn't a huge fan but I liked most of their songs I heard that were hits.

Intro to Speak is still cool as hell.

Operation Mindcrime is a top 5 for me. I find it to be the best concept album ever.

No I havent, hopefully he isnt the guy from Journey.....

 

NO ONE CAN REPLACE STEVE PERRY.

Jerry Cantrell loves these guys too. 

 

Listen to Road to Madness off of The Warning. I’ve hear that song dozens on times throughout the years but never really listened. The lyrics are haunting. 

Imposter

 

They played with the heart of ketchup and the soul of gravy.

Road to Madness 

Most of this is memory now
I've gone too far to turn back now
I'm not quite what I thought I was but
Then again I'm maybe more
The blood-words promised, I've spoken
Releasing the names from the circle
Maybe I can leave here now and, o
Transcend the boundaries

For now I'm standing here
I'm awaiting this grand transition
The future is but past forgotten
On the road to madness

Times measure rusts as it crawls
I see it's face in the looking glass - stop
This screaming laughter hides, the pain of it's reality
Black, the door was locked I opened
And now I've paid that price ten-fold over
Knowledge - was it worth such torment, oh
To see the far side of shadow

And still I'm standing here
I'm awaiting this grand transition
I'm a fool in search of wisdom
And I'm on the road to madness
Yes, I'm on the road to madness

I'm awaiting endlessly
Pounding rhythms echo me
Wont you take me somewhere far beyond the void

And still I'm standing here
I'm awaiting this grand transition
Maybe one day, oh I'll meet you, and well
Walk the roads to madness
Yes, were on the road to madness

Oh, I think they've come to take me
I hear the voice, but there's no-one to see
I can't scream, too late it's time

Stay on the course to pass
Youll never find the answer
To a place where darkened angels
Seemed lost and never found
Scream to see the light of
Forming figures fast behind you
Lay the past in the wind to spin
And your fate will sail beyond the open plains
Sail with angels onward
Live or die for the chosen one said
Saber sights cast a spell behind you
And they lock in all around

Free the scene insider
Never looking back to find why
Ride a course till the end of time
And you'll stand atop the gate
Laying waste in a path recited
Fighting force wont avenge the guided black wing
Oh, electric might poses fright inside me
Seeing light at the end of sight reminds me
I've passed away

Is that an insult or a compliment?

Yes

Are they underrated?

This. 

OM is a fucking masterpiece.

Yep. 

They used to be one of my favorites. After Promised Land there is a big drop in the quality of the material. I still like a couple songs on each album though.
