PostSubject: Operation Mindcrime: Resurrection   Mon Jul 18, 2016 5:17 am

Let the flaming begin!



From Melodicrock.com

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 Queensr'che 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 GRAMMY nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, 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.

Well, I'd want to hear that song with Blaze and Owens, out of curiosity more than anything, but beyond that I think I'll pass.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Side note, how many bands/artists have an album titled "Resurrection?" Off the top of my head I can think of Halford, Venom, and Angel Witch.

Going by that, it sounds like he's embracing his metal roots again. At least for an individual song.

But as a whole, I'll pass.

I am surprised the Frontiers didn't drop The Vest after the abysmal sales and reaction of the last one. Pass.

I'll buy it, too. Probably used or new there's a good sale price (but probably not since pretty much every Frontiers album is way overpriced). The Key had "Re-inventing the Future," which is a killer tune, so there may be a gem or two on this one.

This is probably a minority opinion, but I found the Operation: Mindcrime album a lot more interesting than the last album by QR.

Granted, a lot of the sins of the last QR could have been down to sequencing and production as the last four or so tracks had some signs of life - but I was just damn BORED listening to Condition Human. O:M wasn't a stone classic, but it certainly wasn't boring and had some good moments.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm perversely looking forward to a new album from Operation: Vestcrime. Razz

Minority opinion for sure. You're probably the only one in the world who thinks that. Haha.

Keep in mind, I'm not expecting any classics, but QR is in a bad way as far as I'm concerned. They seem rudderless and don't really stand out anymore. At least when Tate was with them, they were interesting like a train wreck. Now, they're just kind of... generic prog metal lite.

And typing that out is not a happy experience for me. Crying or Very sad

I completely disagree. I really liked the last album, but this latest one is fantastic. Easily the best thing they've done since Promised Land, and it includes, I think, some of the best songs they've ever written.

The classic QR doesn't do anything to me to. Stale and boring. Om is intersting in how bad the album turns out.

Minority opinion for sure. You're probably the only one in the world who thinks that. Haha.

By a happy coincidence i have the official numbers on this.

49 people prefer OM
253 people prefer QR

the other 7,399,999,598 people don't care! Laughing

There does seem to be a 'crappiest album cover' thing going on. The last QR cover was terrible, this is worse!

It may not be a great cover, but at least it stands out. QR have been digging deep into the "also ran" pile when it comes to picking out their cover art. The Last one looks like something King Diamond would have released on '03 or so. Crying or Very sad

Well, now it looks Tate will be touring with Bayley and Owens.

Lol! It's the mostly scab version of the Three Tremors.
