“Resurrection” is the second part of a musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate, following one year after the release of the debut album, “The Key” in September 2015. Operation: Mindcrime continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensryche vocalist’s iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music’s most resolute forces and frontmen.
“The album “Resurrection” is the second part of our three album presentation or trilogy. It continues the story that began on the first album“The Key” with the near death experience of the lead character known as “H” and his subsequent recovery of the missing encryption key. With the Key finally in his possession, “H” has everything he needs to finally launch his long awaited project called “The New Reality”. Or does he…,” explains Geoff Tate.
Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way. The landmark concept albumOperation: Mindcrime thrust Tate‘s unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed byEmpire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples “Silent Lucidity” and “Jet City Woman.” By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, GeoffTate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. From Mindcrime andPromised Land through 2009’s overlooked gem American Soldier – Tate‘s ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans – Tate‘s 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results.
