When Queensrÿche toured in 1991 in support of Empire, EMI released Operation: LIVEcrime, a limited-edition set containing both a videocassette and a CD of live performances. Interestingly, nothing from Empire is included on this hour-long CD, which instead focuses strictly (and obviously, from the title) on material from the acclaimed Operation: Mindcrime…

Breaking Orbit's debut album "The Time Traveller" is a captivating mix of eclectic soundscapes, driving polyrhythms, euphoric vocal melodies, tribal drum breakdowns and heavy grooves - taking the listener on an epic 60-minute journey. The band’s overall sound is heavy and chunky with the bass sitting unusually high in the mix, comparable somewhat to Tool’s Aenima and Lateralus. This foundation is complemented by the sort of lilting cleans and leads that Dead Letter Circus love to employ and held together with a strong focus on ambitious experimentation that fans of Karnivool’s Sound Awake will love. Capped off with a stunningly powerful vocal performance, the album boldly establishes a unique character built on intense feeling and a clarity of vision.

Fans of dynamic and thoughtful music are in for a treat with this release by Sydney, Australia's, Breaking Orbit, 2015's "Transcension." Combining elements from across the musical spectrum, the group blurs the lines between Rock and Metal, and indeed between dream and reality. Building off of their similarly excellent debut, "The Time Traveller", Breaking Orbit provide the listener with dazzling musical landscapes to engage the imagination. "Progressive" is a good word to summarize the many distinct sounds that come together on the album, but instead of dizzying compositions with more time changes than you can shake a stick at, the band focus their energies to create seamlessly flowing songs of incredible beauty.

In the world of progressive instrumental acts, following the trend set by Animals as Leaders, there is a lot of genuine quality and creativity but few bands actually separate themselves from the crowd. It’s a difficult genre to listen to with a very intellectual feel that doesn’t easily appeal to random metal heads. Nashville’s Arch Echo is a band that escaped the rat race (cover artwork pun intended) and they do this by ditching the rather pretentious attitude that often surrounds instrumental music especially when tapping into those intellectual jazz and avant-garde influences. They do it at the same level of quality but instead of giving you a musical physics lesson they actually make it fun…

Genre: Avant-garde Metal | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Season Of Mist (SOM 397)

With "Meta", the ever-evolving Thy Catafalque transforms once again. The Hungarian progressive/experimental metal project, helmed by composer, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist Tamás Kátai, takes a heavier, more direct tack than on last years sprawling "Sgùrr". Katai effortlessly weaves idiosyncratic progressive passages and folk melodies through this (much) heavier and more metallic album. Thy Catafalque's enduring unpredictability makes it one of metal's most unique bands, and 'Meta' is yet another distinct and indispensable piece of their integral catalog of albums.

In this case, The Art of Live follows Tribe, containing six live versions of cuts from that fine disc. This tour document comes after Chris DeGarmo's reunion tour and features original members Geoff Tate, Michael Wilton, and Scott Rockenfield with bassist Eddie Jackson and guest guitarist Mike Stone…

Queensrÿche started as The Mob in 1981, by guitarist Michael Wilton, drummer Scott Rockenfield, guitarist Chris DeGarmo and bassist Eddie Jackson. Without a singer, they recruited Geoff Tate to sing for them at a local rock festival. At the time, Tate was in another band called Babylon. After Babylon broke up, Tate performed a few shows with The Mob, but left the group. In 1981, The Mob put together sufficient funds to record a demo tape. Once again they asked Tate, who was in another band Myth, to do the vocals and they recorded four songs “Queen of the Reich”, “Nightrider”, “Blinded”, and “The Lady Wore Black”…

The two CDs contain the album, B-sides, remixes and live tracks, while the DVD features the album's first ever 5.1 surround sound mix (DTS 24/96) by Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief), a hi-resolution stereo audio mix (24/96 PCM WAV) and two promo videos.
This album from Katatonia, their first studio effort since 2006, is as moody and beautiful as their other latter-day work. The group's career can be marked in two stages based on the condition of singer Jonas Renske's vocal cords - basically, after the band's first two albums, he developed health problems that prevented him from performing harsh death growls, and ever since the band has moved in an increasingly melodic direction, even covering songs by Will Oldham and Jeff Buckley…

Before long, Mike Patton was on the case to bring them to the Ipecac Recordings roster.
