Against the formidable obstacles of an ever-
QUEENSRŸCHE secured a triumphant legacy as one of hard rock’s most respected and celebrated acts, selling 30 million albums around the world across a 30-
The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. Queensrÿche built a dedicated legion of fans
traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered
several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, Queensrÿche won’t relent. In fact, they’re in the throes of a jaw-
Condition Hüman tracks like “Guardian,” “Hellfire,” and “Bulletproof” are destined to take their place among Queensrÿche’s most beloved songs. Produced by Zeuss (Rob
Zombie, Hatebreed, Sanctuary) in the band’s native Washington, Condition Hüman is a new mountain towering over many of the peaks and valleys of the hard rock landscape.
Among the great strengths of Queensrÿche is the band’s diversity, from the classic metal majesty of early demo banger “Queen of the Reich” to the soaring and orchestral-
demanded. Cofounders Michael Wilton (guitar), Eddie Jackson (bass), and Scott Rockenfield (drums) with Todd La Torre (vocals) and Parker Lundgren (guitar) draw power from stunning collective synergy, a renewed sense of urgency, and an overall lifeaffirming optimism. Reverent to the band’s iconic past while forging fearlessly into the future, Condition Hüman is a definitive statement of purpose from a hard rock institution.
The seminal bursts of the Queensrÿche EP, stone cold classic debut full-
Queensrÿche’s dominance at rock radio continued into the ‘90s with a string of hits including “Jet City Woman,” “Another Rainy Night (Without You),” “Real World,” “I Am I,”
“Bridge,” and “Sign of the Times.” Promised Land entered the charts at #3 and became another platinum seller. Even with the advent of grunge, shrinking radio formats, MTV’s
new reliance on reality television, and the bankruptcy of their longtime major label, the band continued to craft impressive collections and remained a mainstay on the charts. The richly exploratory Hear in the Now Frontier, Q2K, and Tribe precipitated the release of Operation: Mindcrime II, which boasted guest vocals from the late Ronnie James Dio.
Unmistakably powerful, hypnotic, and melodic, the definitive sound established by the first five Queensrÿche releases found new life with La Torre, whose mastery of the classic material, inspired enthusiasm, and introduction of traditional metal grit invigorated hardcore fans around the world. Metalholic put the band’s first record with La Torre and Lundgren at #5 (!) in an editorial ranking Queensrÿche’s sizable collection of studio albums. Standout track “Don’t Look Back” set the stage for the new era. Queensrÿche
established they would honor the band’s legacy but never surrender to pure nostalgia.
True to the promise of the album prior, Condition Hüman injects the immediacy of right now into a potent distillation of what’s come before. “Guardian” boasts perhaps the most anthemic chorus of the band’s career. “Hellfire” is balls-
Dark, melodic, dynamic, diverse, instantly memorable, with an intellectual slant to the
songwriting and lyrics that are always inviting on the surface while rewarding deeper listening, Queensrÿche continuously replenishes themselves, more than three decades into their body of work. Brave, adventurous, never less than authentic, Queensrÿche captured the rare lightning-
