It’s always slightly embarrassing and awkward when a band break up and then the various members form different versions of the same band (see Great White, Sweet, L.A. Guns, etc.). Such is the case with Queensrÿche. When lead singer Geoff Tate was fired in 2012, he put his own version of Queensrÿche together and toured, so two Queensrÿche existed. Later, he changed the name of his own band to Operation: Mindcrime, the title of a beloved Queensrÿche album, so it’s ever so slightly less weird but still damn weird. But anyway, Tate has one of the best voices in metal and prog rock — an operatic howl with a dark edge. ’Ryche classics like “Jet City Woman” and “Silent Lucidity” will still sound phenomenal.
