Remastered re-release of the debut EP by legendary American Progressive/Heavy Metal band.
Originally recorded in June 1982 as a demo tape, this release came out in 1982 on Queensrÿche's vanity label 206 Records. It was re-issued in 1983 after the band signed to EMI Records. EP garnered international praise, receiving much airplay and selling an unusual number of copies for a small independent release. To support the EP, the band toured with Quiet Riot through the south and with Twisted Sister to the East Coast and Canada, and played in Seattle opening for Dio. After the tour had ended in November 1983, the band began preparations for their first studio album, "The Warning".
A CD version of the EP was released in 1988. The 1988 reissue by EMI saw the addition of a bonus track, "Prophecy", which was recorded during the "Rage For Order" sessions in 1985–86. This song was performed live by the band circa 1983, and was included on the 1984 "Live In Tokyo" home video.
On the 2003 remastered edition, tracks 5–14 were live recordings of Queensrÿche's second performance in the tour supporting "The Warning", held August 5, 1984 at the Nihon Seinen-kan in Tokyo, Japan. The performance was previously released on VHS in 1984 as "Live In Tokyo".
In 2005, “Queensrÿche” EP was ranked number 336 in Rock Hard Magazine's book of “The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time”.
Capitol Records/EMI Records, 1983/1988/2003 (72435-80528-2-4). Made in EU. Pressed in Germany.
