From what we’ve heard so far, Queensryche are doing a bang-up job of carrying on without Geoff Tate. While their 2013 self-titled album introducing Todd La Torre established them, October’s Condition Hüman sounds like they’re hitting their stride. “Arrow of Time” is a jam on par with “The Needle Lies,” and faster than anything they’d done in the last few years with Tate. Now, with the album coming out in two weeks, the band have released “Hellfire,” another track from the album. It’s a little more midtempo, but there are some great solos from guitarists Michael Wilton and Parker Lundgren. La Torre’s vocals are very Tate-like as well.
Condition Hüman will be out on Century Media on October 2. You can preorder it here.
