WTF? Queensryche not metal? Listen to Operation Mindcrime and read the lyrics.
Granted Empire and above wasn't that good. But their old albums rule and so does
the Priest!

judas priest is the best live band you will ever see. no other band comes close. also, queensryche might not be considered heavy metal by some, but, i would go see them, just to hear something live from mindcrime. that was a very well produced album.

1st of all fred I've probably been listening to metal and Rock longer than your punk a$$ has been alive.2nd Queensryche is classified as old school metal.I'm not surprised that you don't know this because you clearly can't spell school.It's not spelled s-k-o-o-l DUMBASS ! I think I hear your mother calling.You'll need a lot of rest for the g-e-d exam in the morning.Now get a grip and stop sucking d***! Metal the way it is, is not how it's alway's been hence the term OLD SCHOOL !!! d***HEAD!!! That's school spelled S-C-H-O-O-L !.
