    A new DVD from Queensryche is scheduled for release October 9th. As this is one of my all-time favorite bands (Operation: mindcrime is absolutely a desert island disc) I'm quite excited about this. Does anyone have further details on this disc's content?

    Thank goodness I'm not the only one who loved this band. This is actually one of the few 80's bands that I can still listen to.
    Can't wait for Operation Livecrime. Mindcrime was an excellent (if not somewhat derivative) concept album that I listened to for like a year straight...

    Yeah, I'm really looking forward to this release. I was a diehard Queensryche fan back in the OMC, Empire, and Promised Land days. Like Philip I have the Livecrime LD and their Empire LD, both have amazing PCM stereo tracks.
    BTW, I was thinking about Queensryche last week and the song Empire came to mind while I was watching news about the WTC tragedy. Listen to that song and think about the events of the last week, some of it is pretty chilling.

    From my understanding of the DVD (Not Operation:LiveCrime DVD), was recorded a few monthes ago. Queensryche played 2 nights earlier this summer in Seattle and played a different set each night. They made this DVD out of it and are also releasing a double CD (which has even more songs on it). It sounds pretty cool.
    Here is a track listing for the DVD:
    NM 156
    Roads to Madness
    The Lady Wore Black
    London
    Screaming in Digital
    I Am I
    Damaged
    Empire
    Silent Lucidity
    Jet City Woman
    Hit the Black
    Breakdown
    The Right Side of My Mind
    Revolution Calling
    Suite Sister Mary
    My Empty Room
    Eyes of a Stranger
    Take Hold of the Flame
    Queen of the Reich
    From what I have read, there are at least one easter egg on the DVD. I think it is a new song, but I might be wrong.
    I can't wait to get my hands on it.

    So will Chris DeGarmo be playing in this concert? He took a break and wasn't on the Q2K disc (which I like).

    Paul,
    It's cool that you've seent hem so often! I saw them open for Metallica (before I was into them at all - I was _very_ impressed) during the Mindcrime tour, and saw the Hear In The Now Frontier concert (which was fantastic).

    A lot of what I love about Queensryche left with De Garmo. I think he contribute the bulk of the songwriting chores.

    I agree that DeGarmo was a huge part of what made them great. Q2K is terrible, IMHO.

    OH MAN!!!!!!! FLASHBACK!!
    i also was into Queensryche from the EP to Empire. i saw them live after all these years in Phoenix last year opening for Iron Maiden on Maiden's Brave New World tour. it was a great show! this would be fantastic to have this on dvd. NM 156 is possibly the first track!?! very cool since that's one of my favorite Queensryche tunes. [​IMG]

    I went to Best Buy today and they said that it wouldn't be out till the 30th. I don't believe this as Queensryche's official website that it was released on the 8th. I always look around in their shopping carts with the media that is to be stocked on the shelf but didn't find it there or on the shelves. [​IMG]

    James,
    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only person out there who really dug Q2K. [​IMG]
    I'll keep my eyes open for this one. Rush DVD on Tuesday too!!!
    Another note for 80's Metal Fans. . .the SOD disk, Kill Yourself: The Movie, is a hoot! (Although to see the concert footage you have to put it in a DVD-ROM to get a code or something - I haven't bothered yet.)
    I'd love to see a DVD release of the Live After Death show. . .I have the Maiden disc where they're performing with that magician, which is a riot.

    Picked this disc up yesterday, and have mixed feelings about it.
    While it is a solid DVD from an audio and video perspective, I think this is one case in which the bonus features somehow bring down the overall quality of the disc. It was painful to watch the "behind the scenes" footage and band interviews. The interviews and behind the scenes footage almost had a Spinal Tap feel and absurdity to them, which I don't think was intended. Geoff Tate stopped just short of apologizing for everything after Empire by saying that while he thought they were quality albums, the problem was that society's tastes were not aligned with their music anymore (kind of like Ian Faith saying that Spinal Tap's popularity was not waning but rather their appeal was becoming more selective).
    The guy that replaced DeGarmo seems to have few brain cells left.
    There wasn't much excitement in the performance, but like I said, the picture and sound were pretty good. While Queensryche claims that other albums are in the works (they have a new contract with an unheard-of label), I think their best days are long past.
