With Queensryche's third album, Operation: Mindcrime, the Seattle quintet transcended the metal label assigned to the band and cemented its reputation for cerebral music and heady lyrical vision. Praised by critics upon its release in 1988, the acclaimed concept album was certified platinum. Even today, Operation: Mindcrime's dynamic music and powerful message still resonate.
On April 4, 2006, Queensryche singer and chief songwriter, Geoff Tate; guitarists Michael Wilton and Mike Stone; bassist, Eddie Jackson and drummer, Scott Rockenfield will release the much-anticipated sequel, OPERATION: MINDCRIME II. Set 20 years after the original, the 15-song story arc continues the story of Nikki, Dr. X and Sister Mary.
Tate says he intentionally left the original Operation: Mindcrime open-ended and planned a sequel to tie up loose ends. The current political and social climates, he says, inspired him to revisit the storyline. Considering where we are today and how little things have changed, it was too ironic not to continue the story, he explains. We've entered this brave new world were everything feels the same, but is really worse.
Queensryche's last Ballroom performance sold out quickly. This November show will be one for the ages.
