TITLE: The New Reality
ARTIST:
OPERATION: MINDCRIME
LABEL
: Frontiers Music s.r.l.
RELEASE
DATE: December 1, 2017

Anybody who calls themself a rocker knows the iconic voice of Geoff Tate who was the frontman of Queensryche.  After his separation he has continued to create music that is reminesent to his vocal style and creative musical sounds.  This new album is a true masterpiece with some explorations in new directions while still maintaining an interesting blend of vocals and instrument experimentations.  Any one of the songs on the album is a good place to start, but Wake Me Up is a true masterpiece with the powerful vocals that only Geoff Tate can deliver.  With members like Gutarist Kelly Gray, Bassist John Moyer, Drummers Simon Wright, Brian Tichy and Scott Mercado and Pianoist Mike Ferguson this band can not go wrong with so much talent in one band.

BAND MEMBERS:
Geoff Tate, Kelly Gray, John Moyer, Simon Wright, Scott Mercado, Scott Moughton, Brian Tichy, Mike Ferguson
