The more I hear from this album, the more I like it.

What album? Why, the forthcoming Queensryche self-titled album, that is….

There was an official premiere of another song from it, “Where Dreams Go To Die,” last night on Seattle’s KISW 99.9, but it was at 11 p.m. Pacific time and I was quite asleep by then…but I heard the song earlier this morning and an official Century Media YouTube clip popped up. Have a listen.

My thoughts? Wow, this is totally badass. It sounds better than pretty much everything I’ve heard from the band at least since 1994’s Promised Land. The twin-guitar harmonies, the vocals…this sounds more like classic, real Queensryche (sort of like Rage for Order meets Promised Land) than what they’ve done since then. And if what I’m hearing is correct, this song was actually written by lead guitarist Parker Lundgren. I’ve said before that I thought it would be intriguing to see what he brought to the table, and he delivered. Man, did he ever. I can hardly wait to hear the rest of it.

    Look, I love you but I question anyone who’d take your opinion on this. You are the farthest thing from an impartial listener; you are going to say everything LaTorre does is FANTASTIC and everything Tate does SUCKS, just like the people on the other side of the most Idiotic War Ever are going to do the opposite. Really, the whole thing is sad and you need to take a break from it.
