Mini Movie "Queensrÿche: Ad Lucem" Filmed By Queensrÿche

Queensrÿche recently filmed a "mini movie" with the tracks, "Spore," "Midnight Lullaby," "A World Without" and "X2" providing the score to a 10-plus minute story, dubbed "Queensrÿche: Ad Lucem." The film was created by Veva Entertainment Co. with director Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby and producer Marco De Molina and was filmed last month on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles. The release date of the mini movie was not yet revealed.

Vocalist Todd La Torre, issued the following statement: "We decided to take a different approach with this video, which is comprised of four pieces of music from our latest self-titled release, Queensrÿche. It's a conceptual mini-movie music video that invites the audience to scratch beneath the surface a bit, rather than the usual "chewed food" that so many are used to being fed. We really wanted to deviate from a performance type of video so the music and story-line could be the main focus."

La Torre also adds, "The overall theme of the song Spore is one that deals with personal demons, relationship struggles, career pressures, personal/professional morals and ethical dilemmas. These are issues we all face on some level and the video touches upon them all. Midnight Lullaby/A World Without deals with the loss of a mother during childbirth, leaving a father as a single parent and struggling to move forward through the turmoil. X2, though it opens up our album, provides for a nice outro to it all. The end result is a roller coaster of emotion in an effort to find a healthy resolve. Given our history, we feel that this multifaceted conceptual video, along with a great cast of actors to suit, will really resonate with our fans."

I so can't wait for this "mini" movie !!! This band has come full circle, while Geoff Tate's contributions are to are to may to list here. The best thing Queensryche did was to implode and reboot with Todd LaTorre. He brings a new attitude, vigor, dare I say youth to the band.
