Album: Queensrÿche (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Queensrÿche open the first album from the Todd La Torre-fronted version of the band with this futuristic instrumental penned by Scott Rockenfield. La Torre told Music Enthusiast Magazine that the drummer utilized the composition skills he's picked up during his scoring work for film and video games. "He's great with all those different sound effects and cinematic ear-candy, we like to call it, you know?," said the frontman. "He's really great with that, I think it's a really great way to start off the album and it transitions right into the first actual song very well. But yeah, I'm glad you like it. It's really cool, it has some vocal stuff, and yes that is me, but you would have to figure out where's it's from and that kind of thing. You'll hear part of that deep talking, if you will, and that's me from somewhere else in the album. But yeah, it's a great opener."
