Queensrÿche is an American heavy/progressive metal band. Formed in 1980 in Bellevue, Washington, out of the local band “The Mob”, they were originally a cover band that played songs from Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Deciding to move from cover work to original music they put together a demo tape, the first song of which was titled, “Queen of the Reich”. Intense, relentless drumming, brilliant guitar riffs and other worldly vocals, reminiscent of Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson, coupled with powerful composition and intelligent lyrics made for metal magic.
In 1988, the band received worldwide acclaim after the release of “Operation: Mindcrime”, a narrative concept album that proved a massive critical and commercial success and is often considered one of the greatest heavy metal concept albums of all time.
Chris Collins, the first vocalist of the progressive metal band Dream Theater, covered this song for his audition for the band. The song is also featured in the 2006 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
