Queensrÿche - Film Mini-Movie

Queensrÿche recently filmed a 'mini movie' for the tracks "Spore", "Midnight Lullaby","A World Without" and "X2". The tracks will provide the score to a 10-plus minute story, dubbed Queensrÿche: Ad Lucem ("Towards the light"). The movie was filmed by director Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby with producer Marco De Molina on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles last month. No word yet on when it will premiere but stay tuned for that.

Vocalist Todd La Torre has issued the following statement: "We decided to take a different approach with this video, which is comprised of four pieces of music from our latest self-titled release, Queensrÿche. It's a conceptual mini-movie music video that invites the audience to scratch beneath the surface a bit, rather than the usual 'chewed food' that so many are used to being fed. We really wanted to deviate from a performance type of video so the music and story-line could be the main focus."

La Torre also adds: "The overall theme of the song 'Spore' is one that deals with personal demons, relationship struggles, career pressures, personal/professional morals and ethical dilemmas. These are issues we all face on some level and the video touches upon them all. 'Midnight Lullaby/A World Without' deals with the loss of a mother during childbirth, leaving a father as a single parent and struggling to move forward through the turmoil. 'X2', though it opens up our album, provides for a nice outro to it all. The end result is a roller coaster of emotion in an effort to find a healthy resolve. Given our history, we feel that this multifaceted conceptual video, along with a great cast of actors to suit, will really resonate with our fans."

"The Quaker"
I like that they still think big. I guess it's similar to what they did to O:M.

Secundum Filium
This should be interesting.
Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole universe (Lao Tzu).
