Offenders of the Faith Pt. II: Queensryche
9/14/2012 3:02:56 PM by Jonah Haze




Drama Queen of the Ryche Starring the Original Voice: Geoff Tate.

Queensryche were such a promising NWOBIAHM (New Wave of British Influenced American Heavy Metal) band in the early eighties. Along with debut contemporaries like Anthrax and Overkill there was some heavy lifting but respectful representation of their British peers. But taking hold of the flame seemed to burn the hands of those interested in business not ideals.

Queensryche should have been pronounced dead on the arrival of "Empire" hitting the shelves. And as with every Empire, history will tear it down.
