In the latest episode of Gear Addicts, Queensrÿche’s Scott Rockenfield talks about the band’s upcoming studio album and first with Todd La Torre.
“The final stages of the record are being done now,” the drummer says. “The excitement that we have right now is because it’s a visit to the past. The whole transition for us was all about musical and creative direction. In a nutshell, I would say what we’re doing on the new record is much more like our early stuff like the EP until Mindcrime and Empire. Metal, hard rock, good song structure, incredible performances (laughs). We’ve really dug in deep.”
