Although they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the ’80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. They constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of post-Van Halen metal and ’70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. The band began to break into the mainstream with the acclaimed album Operation: Mindcrime. Boasting orchestral arrangements, the album was Queensrÿche’s most ambitious and focused effort, earning both positive reviews and strong sales. Operation: Mindcrime stayed on the American charts for a year, selling over a million copies during its run. Its follow-up, Empire, was the group’s biggest success, selling over two million copies due to the hit single “Silent Lucidity.” Always working and always touring, now in 2011 Queensryche released their eleventh studio album, Dedicated to Chaos.
