QUEENSRŸCHE “The Warning” /CD/



Remastered re-release of the debut full-length album by legendary American Progressive Metal band.
"The Warning" proved to be a holding pattern for Seattle's Queensrÿche, offering quality classic Metal with lyrics tending to the mystical and occult. The band wrote the material for "The Warning" during their tour in support of the "Queensrÿche" EP, inspired by world events and the 1949 George Orwell novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four". Elements of Judas Priest, Rush and Iron Maiden are evident in the music, but the band takes inspirations like these and make them, not the base of the music, but add these influences as extra spice in their own style. The album was recorded in various recording studios in London with Pink Floyd-producer James Guthrie. "The Warning" featured more Progressive elements than the EP. It was a moderate commercial success in the United States, although none of the singles charted domestically. However, "Take Hold of the Flame" was an international hit, particularly in Japan. In support of the release, Queensrÿche went on a worldwide tour from August 1984 through to July 1985. During the American leg of their tour, they were the opening act for Kiss on their 1984–85 Animalize Tour and Iron Maiden on their 1984–85 World Slavery Tour.
“The Warning” began Queensryche's road to Rock royalty. With its Orwellian themed lyrical content, stunning vocals and sheer musicianship, this conceptual Prog-Metal album helped launch their long tenure in the Rock charts. Thanks in part to amazing tracks like "No Sanctuary" and "The Warning" this album has truly been a fan favorite for years. Intensity, melody and tantalizing guitar work keep the heart of this release pounding after all these years. It will appeal to nearly all lovers of challenging music and if you haven't heard "The Warning" yet, you must check out this Metal milestone!!
Re-edition features three bonus tracks and the booklet, which has a well written introduction by Paul Suter, as well as lyrics for all the songs. For the fan it is definitely worth the purchase!
