Progmetalheads: If you haven't seen this double bill our on tour now and are a fan of these two bands be sure to make the effort and catch a show. Saw them in Albuquerque last night and was pretty blown away. Fates is opening and sound phenomenal. What a tight band. Ray sounds phenomenal and Jim Matheos (still my pick for most deserving artist model PRS) is just a pure bad ass. I actually wondered what Queensryche must think to follow that. Didn't need to! Queensryche is in awesome forms. I'm a long time fan and this lineup and material almost make me forget Geoff Tate AND Chris DeGarmo. They are that good. Enough gushing . Just wanted to sound the bell and encourage folks that may be on the fence to catch this combo on tour if they can.
