Todd La Torre’s solo record Rejoice In The Suffering is an event worth celebrating.

“Rejoice In The Suffering was truly a labor of love. It’s a pure metal record that certainly showcases a wide range of my vocal abilities. I feel there is something for any true fan of metal on this album. This album is full of groove, dynamics, power, and substance and I can’t wait for people to hear it,” explains Todd La Torre.

Band Spotlight: Queensrÿche

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at 1:46 PM (PST)

Queensrÿche have many great eras and albums, the best of which is a hotly debated topic amongst rock fans. I love almost everything they have ever done (especially Empire, Condition Human, Tribe and Rage For Order being my personal faves – don’t yell at me Mindcrime fanatics, haha). It is flat out dumb not to respect them and consider them a very important legacy band. Tate and La Torre are both vocal giants  who have led the always skilled line ups and there is always something to offer. Anyway, the band still kicks ass and The Verdict was another killer release last year on Century Media.

“Inner Unrest” is their new video from that album, a song tackling PTSD. “‘Inner Unrest’ is an abstract characterization loosely based on the struggles dealing with PTSD. The internal and external battles one must fight daily,” states Queensryche frontman Todd LaTorre about the track. 

See the band live with John 5 and Eve To Adam in 2020!

Album Review: Queensrÿche – “Condition Human”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 11:11 AM (PST)

queensrycheconditioncd

The only way it could be more apparent at this point that losing Geoff Tate
was the best career saving decision Queensryche ever made was if the current
line up performed some Frequency Unknown songs in the set and did a better
job at those as well. Understand that every time I have to write something
like that about Tate-ryche and the fall from grace of one of metal’s once
towering voices, a little part of the kid in me who fell in love with every
track on Empire dies. But the new band have made me believe again, along wth
many others. Geoff Tate is grasping at straws with his distastefully named
Operation: Mindcrime band, a move that cheapens the iconic album’s brand more
than a new Queensryche line up that kicks ass and has a classic sound ever
could.

And I feel for Tate. It’s gotta hurt. But make no mistake…Condition Human is hands down the best Queensryche album in
20+ years, the best since Promised Land by far and the first to finally once
and for all make you say ,“Chris DeGarmo who”?

To be fair, I liked moments of Tribe and even Dedicated To Chaos had a few late Tate great moments where his better character shone through like “Get Started” which sounds a little like Pearl Jam doing a mid tempo Queensryche song but was fun. But the “we don’t suffer fools” lyric from that song and “Time to change the view” line turned out to fit Tate the best.

Song Of The Week: Queensrÿche’s “Guardian”

Todd LaTorre has reignited the disillusioned ‘Ryche fan base tired of the weird antics of Geoff Tate. I am a lifelong admirer of Tate’s skill and vision but it’s pretty sad these days he is in a band called Operation: Mindcrime. I knew we were headed for some kind of trouble when they were doing the Cabaret stuff a few years ago. I was a fan of some of the disputed records like Tribe (which I LOVE) and even liked parts of Dedicated To Chaos, but the new stuff just has that extra level of epic feeling you want, even without some classic members.

So, Tate aside, let’s take the high road here and focus on the awesomeness of said new stuff. “Guardian” has some vintage riffing, shrieking vocals the way you want them in this band and even some surprises (a very heavy ending riff). Check out our song of the week BELOW.
