Awesome song, they should have canned him years ago.

The song is not memorable at all and sounds more like Lizzy Borden than Queensryche.

yes its boring. I wasn't expecting the second coming to be honest, but Im not hearing a simply average song. Musically it is not very complex or progressive. How this even compares to the early 80s power metal Ryche days, there is none.

I hope some of the other songs are a bit better as even in the Tate solo Ryche days, the first single wasn't as good as some of the deeper cuts.

This is more like one of Wilton's side projects, Wratchet Head. not Soulbender. Even Soulbender sounds more intricate than this song and Wilton didn't even do most of the writing. They firmly rooted as Nu-Metal, copying Alice in Chains and Tool!

^^^I can’t help but wonder if we’re listening to the same song?
This is leagues better than anything they’ve done post Promised Land.
Is it up there with Mindcrime or Empire….not exactly but let’s listen to the full album first.
Vocals are spot on and that’s more than I can say for Tate over the last 15 years.

Actually I’m going to retract my comment about it not being as good as Empire.
I’ve listened to the song about ten times now and it’s fun, memorable, has awesome melody.
So yes…I’d say it’s right up there with Empire or Promised Land.
I just listened to Tates samples from his new album Frequency Unknown and well…..it’s pretty pathetic.

I'll take your retraction Brian and restate that it is as good as Empire. Its heavy, melodic and unlike most QR fans (and I grew up listening to them feverishly) I can say that I can never expect to hear Rage for Order QR again, simply because of DeGarmo's absence. So, I take this as the best non-DeGarmo song they ever created - and that is just find. Tate-less...and loving it.

yessir spiral, the warning and the first EP...have had those since the olden times

bought Rage for Order when it came out in 87 i believe? Never could get into it...or really anything else after

Funny how Ryche is best known for their post warning material, much how Metallica is revered by the masses for all the drivel that came after Justice

Both bands lost the METAL at those respective points and ceased to be very interesting anymore...to me, anyway :)

Listened to it again. Its okay, not earthshattering.

I don't like how some of the QR diehards, or are they, can you really say you're a diehard if you didn't like every album or stopped liking them after a certain record? It makes you more of a critic or a disgruntled fan.

Anyway, the champion the LaTorre version like they did the same way with Q2K and Kelly Gray. Every new incarnation of Queensryche is the next best thing with these people. And then the sh** all over it like it sucked 10 years ago. Hey remember Q2k, awful album, but this next record, we PROMISE is the next greatest thing from Queensryche.

Compare Queensryche to Rush or Dream Theater you can see its night and day in terms of track record. Even when DT was supposedly slacking during the Portnoy years they managed to put out some top quality material. And never did once I hear, that the next album will be better than what they did 10 years before.

Like a sales job at a corporation. After Queensryche is a corporation now.

Latorre isn't very good live. He's still a new singer even during his Crimson Glory experience and with almost a year playing live struggles worse than he did the first time at the Rising West show which is surprising. Plus the guy smokes a lot like Geoff Tate who never took care of his voice. He also is out of breath at times on stage. I really want to believe these guys have a long term relationship with him at the helm.

We shall see. Leaving Crimson Glory, didn't really help things either.

Jnln: I don't think there's anything wrong with coming to the realization that the band you expected so much from delivered a polished turd. It doesn't make anyone less of a fan, it just means you won't be spoonfed a pile of sh!t and act like it's the tasty treat you wanted.

disgruntled fan? For sure...when Rage came out I was like "what the fvck is this sh!te now, eh??" Shoot, I think I was disgruntled for at least a few minutes, but when you're 13, it seems like FOREVER ya know ;P
