MICHELLE N.D.’s TOP 10 of 2013

Support: Michelle N.D. is one of a few contributors who came aboard in 2013, and she brings with her varying tastes in metal (as long as it isn’t black!) and a little bit of attitude, too. Here are Michelle’s top 10 albums of the year.   FATES WARNING : DARKNESS IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT Their first new album in nine years, Darkness in a Different Light is a beautiful, musical peek into the lives of my favorite musicians. Highlights: The heartbreaking “Firefly” and “I Am.”   STONESOUR : HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES PART 2   QUEENSRYCHE : SELF-TITLED In addition to his hypnotic voice, Todd La Torre is the best thing to happen to Queensryche since Geoff Tate started spitting on drummers.   TESTAMENT : DARK ROOTS OF THRASH   METAL CHURCH : GENERATION NOTHING   DREAM THEATER : SELF-TITLED Mike Mangini is a genius. Period.   DEATH ANGEL : THE DREAM CALLS FOR BLOOD   SOULFLY : SAVAGES   GORGUTS : COLORED SANDS This brilliant technical metal band has a new sound that is a must-hear.   BLACK SABBATH : 13 Support: Have you seen these yet?

QUEENSRYCHE – QUEENSRYCHE – FROM THE VAULT

QUEENSRYCHE – QUEENSRYCHE – FROM THE VAULT

Support: Today we take a trip back to 1982 to the self titled EP by Queensrcyhe which was released independently on 206 records and reissued in 1983 by EMI. When Queensryche, who were originally called The Mob, were getting ready to go into the studio, they called upon singer Geoff Tate, who was in another band at the time, to sing on their upcoming recording. The band, upon their manager’s urging, changed their name to Queensryche and released the EP which received glowing reviews and prompted Tate leave his current band to join the Queensryche full-time. In support of the EP, Queensryche went out on tour and opened for bands like Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister and released Queen of the Reich as a single as well as a video for the song. The classic lineup for the EP includes: Geoff Tate – vocals, Michael Wilton and Chris DeGarmo – guitars, Eddie Jackson – bass and Scott Rockenfield – drums. Scott’s brother, Todd designed the symbol known as the tri-ryche logo. Support: Have you seen these yet?

GEOFF TATE SPEAKS ABOUT QUEENSRYCHE

GEOFF TATE SPEAKS ABOUT QUEENSRYCHE

Support: In an interview with Jam Magazine, Geoff Tate spoke with the magazine about the events of the past year, the upcoming court battle for the Queensryche name and what’s in store for the future. During the interview, Geoff also admitted that the band was never close and that the new album, Frequency Unknown is not about his former bandmates. Some excerpts follow below: JAM: How happy are you with the reaction to Frequency Unknown? Geoff Tate – I haven’t paid much attention. I’ve been doing stuff with the band. We’ve been out on the road for a month and have two new guys who are sitting in with us during our next leg. I don’t look back too much. JAM: As a long-time Queensryche fan, I feel like a child in a divorce. Despite what others have said, I do not believe that two is better than one. Although I really like Frequency Unknown and have yet to hear what the other Queensryche will release, I remained troubled. On the other hand, I do understand that this is a business, these things happen and, after being together for so long, bands often split. These things happen. It doesn’t do much good to sit there and live and breathe the tragedy of change. You have to and move on with your life and get involved with the things that make you happy. Making music fulfills me. I love writing music and I love collaborating with other artists. I love playing live. That’s what I’ve been doing during the last year.

QUEENSRYCHE INK NEW RECORD DEAL WITH CENTURY MEDIA

QUEENSRYCHE INK NEW RECORD DEAL WITH CENTURY MEDIA

Support: Holy shit, Queensrÿche is old! Just look how light their cyber presence is at the end of this article. But they’ve signed a brand new deal with the bold and diverse Century Media Records and will debut the work of the band’s newest line-up on June 11, 2013. The only song I ever knew from these guys was “Silent Lucidity”, and I always thought it was someone else: Queensfloyd or Pink Rÿche – which one was it again? I realize that the majority of their work didn’t sound like that. Probably. But I do know the teaser for the new album makes things look kind of interesting. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8iaNZBUK9c]   Really, if it came out of Seattle, I’ll automatically like it until a closer listen changes my mind. “QUEENSRYCHE is excited to begin writing this next chapter of our career with Century Media. Their passion and love for music has been apparent since early discussions and we are pleased to call them partners on this journey,” states bassist Eddie Jackson. “We are also thankful for all of the fans who have supported us from day one and helped us get to where we are today. Todd, Scott, Parker, Michael and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for each and every one of you.” And each and every one of you who’s been around since day one is older than fuck. Congratulations. As long as you’re not too old to mosh, no one gives a shit about that. Catch the new Queensrÿche on tour.

CHARIOTS OF THE GODS – TIDES OF WAR

CHARIOTS OF THE GODS – TIDES OF WAR

Support: Recently, I was given the opportunity to review the new album by Ottowa natives, Chariots of the Gods, called Tides of War released this past January and this is definitely a band to watch out for in the future. The band which consists of Mathieu St-Amour – guitar, Rich O’Neil – drums, Renaud Jobin – vocals, Payam Doryani – bass and Dimitri Gervais – guitar delivers a solid album with 14 tracks that grab you from the start. The band doesn’t mince words and gets straight to the point. Chariots of the Gods don’t just play great songs, they pack a punch with each track. Some of my personal favorites include the album title track Tides of War, Collapse Of An Empire and Starborn, however the whole album left me wanting more with each song. Chariots of the Gods count In Flames, Testament, Iron Maiden and Lamb of God as some of their influences and it shows throughout the entire album. The first strike IS deadly!!! Produced by the legendary Glen Robinson (Queensryche, Gwar, Annihilator), this is definitely one for your metal collection. Check out the video below of the track Tides of War and visit their official website here or via their Facebook page to pick up their new album. Stay tuned for my interview with the band on their new album and what’s next for Chariots of the Gods.   Support: Have you seen these yet?
