Cry Of The Wolf Interview with Geoff Tate of Operation: Mindcrime, (Queensryche)




Geoff Tate has released the final album for his Operation: Mindcrime trilogy, A New Reality. I spoke with him about the current album, touring, Missing keyboard players, and the general state of the music business.
Thanks for taking the time to do this. Take us through the writing process.
Well for this particular project it was the story followed by the music. I wrote this several years ago while hiking in Spain. Came w=up with quite a few musical outlines and it grew from there. There is no set way. Sometimes it’s a word or a figure that starts it all off. Or just a short idea that you have. You try to write a song that describes how you feel at the moment. Turns into a song

Do you take the ideas and take it to the band or is all done via file sharing?
For this project we brought them in and we sat in one place for a few weeks and recorded. It was a matter of playing a piece of what I had started and then …

Interview with Gabriele J. Palermo from tragedian 

“I told the guys, look, this could be our pyromania, but the next one has to be our Hysteria"
With almost the entire band now entrenched in Germany ,tragedian is setting its sights on world domination. The release of their third album is upon us. The production and over all feel of this album is unparalleled. It is a nonstop power metal masterpiece.  I talked with Palermo about his plans, the album, and life in one of Germany's upcoming metal acts.



What was your mind set going into this recording?
“I told the guys, look this could be our pyromania, but the next one has to be our Hysteria. Except we can’t take five years for the next one. Originally it was supposed to be a concept album but we came up with only three songs for a subject. Not enough for a full concept. I said to Alex, let’s make a horror movie translated into music. Which is what we did.  Each song is a story.”

The song with Kai Hansen (Helloween, Gamma Ray) is one …

Primal Fear Live album review

Image
PRIMAL FEAR is one of those metal bands that never fails to deliver.
So I was a little wary of the live album format. Often bands will forge ahead and release a few key performances. Most times the sessions fall flat of the studio releases. Some bands just cannot capture that energy in a bottle from a live show.


 PRIMAL FEAR is not one of those bands. They are consistent and in some cases even better on the live stage than the recordings. 

     Hands down this is one powerful live band. The energy, the emotion, the crowd participation, it is all here in the latest release from PRIMAL FEAR. You will feel like you have a front row seat to all the metal mayhem and atmosphere of a perfect metal performance.The production value is unmatched.


 This is one live album that lives up to all its expectations.Pickup, “ANGELS OF MERCY – LIVE IN GERMANY” out now.
