Episode 18: Promised Land

Ray and Steve kick off 2024 with a bang as they take on the 1994 classic Queensryche album, Promised Land! The album found the band facing a changing musical landscape as metal was dying and grunge was taking over. How did they respond? How does Promised Land hold up in 1994’s changing world?

The guys discuss:

  • their personal histories with the album
  • the usual track-by-track breakdown and analysis
  • ranking the songs from 11 -1
  • ranking the album vs the others that have been reviewed on the show
  • the record release party that appeared on Headbanger’s Ball
  • the Road to the Promised Land tour

Plus, plenty of discussion on feedback from callers Brian Heaton, Jim from Irwin, and new caller Mike! There’s also more talk on the Origins tour, Ray’s recent experience seeing Empire: The Queensryche Experience tribute band, and much more!
