Queensryche Returning To 1980s Sound On New Album

. (Classic Rock) Queensryche frontman Todd La Torre says their new material is reminiscent of albums the band recorded in the 80s. And he says the tracks have the dynamic drive that made the group such a success during the early Geoff Tate era.

He tells Music Enthusiast: "The songs that we have right now are melodic. There are some heavy tunes that are really rocking. Some of the songs remind me of Rage For Order and Operation: Mindcrime.

"We'll probably slip in something with a more commercial appeal, like In This Light from the record I did before. But, overall, I'm hopeful that, when it's all said and done, this record will have a really good drive, melodic choruses, great guitar parts and be very dynamic."

He also states that the new material will please Queensryche fans as it builds on the foundations of their 2013 self-titled release. Read more here.
