In 1983, Queensryche exploded onto the metal scene with this EP. A little known band from Bellevue, WA, it was by pure chance that KERRANG! Magazine got their hands on this EP and wrote an article heralding it as the future of metal. The world would never be the same.

22 years later, this EP has aged extremely well. The music takes hold of you once you hear Geoff Tate's amazing scream in the beginning of the title track, and it never lets you go. If someone were to hear this music for the first time in the present day, they may not think much of it, but for 1983, it was a groundbreaking release. Backing up Tate are the band's two most important songwriters, lead guitarists Chris DeGarmo and Michael Wilton, as well as Eddie Jackson (bass) and Scott Rockenfield (drums). This lineup would remain the same for the next fifteen years. Geoff Tate, in my opinion, is the greatest rock/metal vocalist of all time. I have seen this band live many times, and his range and power are just as perfect in person, even in the year 2005.

The title track, 'Nightrider,' 'Blinded,' and 'The Lady Wore Black' are all metal classics that can be listened to thousands of times. In addition to Tate's vocals, both DeGarmo and Wilton were already writing and playing some of the most well constructed and creative solos on this record. They were in their late teens/early 20's, but their solos were totally flawless. When this album was re-released in 1986, the bonus track 'Prophecy' was added. I have always felt this track was a hidden gem in the Queensryche catalog and I would even say it's better than the rest of the tracks on this EP. The solos are full of tremolo action, finger tapping, hammer-on's, pull-off's, and arpeggios.

debut album by any metal band in my opinion. Forget Nirvana; these guys were the original super band from the State of Washington!
I originally heard the song "Queen of the Reich" on a metal station in the San Francisco area in the early '80s. I was so completely blown away by the pure intensity of Geoff Tate's vocals and the blazing fury of Chris DeGarmo and Michael Wilton's dual guitar work, I went out and bought the EP immediately. I'm currently wearing out my 2nd copy of the CD as fast as I wore out my 2 copies of the EP.
If you like storytelling in your music (groups like Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, ELP, BOC and Yes), then Queensryche is another band you will want to collect (albeit the music is a bit heavier). Also, unlike vocalists for some other metal bands, you can actually hear what Geoff Tate is singing at top volume. In this EP, you will get a sense of the band's potential of what you would later hear in LPs like "Empire" and "Operation: Mindcrime".
Granted that this was not a commercially successful EP. With songs like "The Lady Wore Black" (the quinessential song of true love no matter the cost) and "Queen of the Reich", however, this EP has to be an integral and serious item in any (past, present and future) metalhead's collection.
In other words, order this EP -=RIGHT NOW=-! :)

In the original version, the self-titled EP would have rated 3 stars, to me. In some ways, after all, it was typical of that era (1982/83), as there were some Iron Maiden and Judas Priest inspired moments in the songs. Yet, in others not so typical. The band's musical brashness and intensity shone through. And of course since it led to greater works later on, this EP is a significant testament. When you think of it, these guys were in their late teens then, and though most had played extensively in other bands, Queensryche began, primarily, in a basement and recorded an EP before they had ever played live as a band. Back then, that was something.
It is admittedly my own fault that I am jaded these days towards, Queen Of The Reich, and, The Lady Wore Black. Over the years I have played the songs to death. Queen Of The Reich, comes off kind of cheese-y lyrically, these days, but, The Lady Wore Black, still stands up lyrically, being an especially high-quality song-writing moment for an EP from a band just starting.
What makes this remaster of the EP worth getting, is the number of extra tracks that have been added to the package, which are taken from the "Live In Tokyo" VHS (not otherwise released). Songs such as, Nightrider, and, Blinded, are seldom played in more recent years. Nightrider, is especially cool to hear as a live track with the volume cranked. One recalls lines of dialogue from Mad Max while listening. The live version of, Prophecy, is also quite good, as well as, Road To Madness, in classic form with the original lyrics.
Even if you are a Queensryche fan who has the initial version of the EP on CD, you have to get this anyway. The live tracks include all four EP tracks, Prophecy, and most tracks from The Warning.

Coming out of the still nascent Seattle scene (Heart being the first to bust out from there) This EP was recorded in 1982 and didn't get released until late 1983 by EMI. I first heard "Queen Of The Reich" on the late-night "Metal Shop" program aired from WIYY-98Rock, and I was immediately in shock and awe! I heard the best of JP, Maiden, and the Scorpions all rolled into one (Queensryche)! I bought the EP as soon as I saw it on the record rack and played it for my friends, who were all blown away by the awsomeness of the Queensryche sound! I saw them open for Judas Priest during their tour for the Warning album and they were FANTASTIC! Here are my reviews of the songs based out of 5 *****:

"Queen Of The Reich" - Cymbals and a quick drum thump lead into a scorching guitar melody and a Geoff Tate piercing howl. A heavy, thumping bass and galloping guitars. Fantastic drumming from Scott Rockenfield (a true metal drummer's last name!) as well as scorching guitar solos from DeGarmo and Wilton. Geoff sounds terrific! A fast-paced metal onslaught that grabs you by the throut and shreds your vocal chords. Some of the highest pitched screams ever put on vinyl. This is the song that brought the band worldwide attention and shook the metal genre up. A CLASSIC! Rating - *****

"Nightrider" - Sounds alot like Judas Priest's "Dissident Aggressor" (actually the opening IS "Dissident Aggressor"!). Another furiously paced tune with very heavy drumming and bass lines. Very heavy song. A combination of Diano Iron Maiden and early Judas Priest. Doing Judas Priest BETTER than JP was at the time! A GREAT song!
