Features The Hit "Silent Lucidity"!
Queensrÿche are and continue to be one of hard rock's finest bands of all time. These Seattle rockers began their musical journey in the early eighties with guitar shredders Chris DeGarmo and Micheal Wilton, power vocalist Geoff Tate, and the solid rhythm section of Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass guitar).
Upon their first major label signing to EMI Records, Queensrÿche almost immediately became an entity destined for superstardom. With their unique blend of progressive rock and heavy metal, as well as the first class musicianship of the quintet, this band truly paved their platinum plus career for years to follow.
Empire broke all the rules in 1990. With its clever lyrical content, stunning vocals and sheer energy of the quintet in the studio, this massive album rode to the upper rungs of the rock and pop charts thanks in part to the amazing and one of a kind power ballad "Silent Lucidity". With more hard rock champions like "Jet City Woman", "Best I Can" and the brilliant album closer "Anybody Listening?", Queensrÿche's Empire is surely one of hard rocks' most enduring albums.
