I liked it.  Definitely didn't hear guitars like that on DTC.

Can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

Put all the chatter about the new song here! I'll open the thread about an hour before the song goes live on Eddie Trunk's show.

Hey guys -- try not to comment too much in here before the song airs at 7 p.m. Eastern. This thread is for your reaction and discussion, so uh...well, we don't want the reaction to the song buried on Page 5.  :lol

Ok, i have to be honest here.

The one thing that i do not like about it is the fact that it was only played once and i cant listen to it again... There, i said it...

Yeah. Eddie played it a few minutes before it was supposed to go, but Boneyard pretty much did it right on time.

The final version sounds great: blistering solo by Whip, and IMO it definitely sounds like Queensryche. Ahhhhh....  :metal:

That's exactly what I think. The chorus definitely smacks of Empire, but the verses and heavier parts sound like a modernized O:M.

It will take a few listens to really absorb for me.  At first listen, it sounds great!  Todd's vocals were definitely cleaned up from the initial clip.  I dug the Whip solo.  No doubt it IS him...haha.  The bridge added in the second half of the song sounded like something Chris would have came up with.  That's all I got for now.

Seriously? I didn't listen because I figured that it would be played later into the show, and I've got to leave soon. Now I've got to wait however long to hear it! Sunuvabitch.

One thing I really liked about it, and have missed from QR for a while now, is that it doesn't have a traditional VCVCBC song structure. It was much more interesting than that, which is something QR used to always do.

Have to admit, I was a little underwhelmed by the initial clip. However, the full song was bad ass.  The mix was great, lots of excellent guitar work, Scott and Ed killed it, and the Todd sounded phenomenal. That's the QR I've been missing for the last 20 years  :metal:

Really like the song. I agree with Lucretia that the song structure is interesting. For me it is definitely miles above anything they've released in a decade.

My biggest complaint would be what sounded like pretty heavy vocal effects being used. Was it my car stereo? Was it Sirius (compressed, lossy audio format)? Was it autotune? Maybe it was my ears. I just know that the vocals didn't sound as clear or natural as I like.
