Operation: Mindcrime Releases New Lyric Video

Operation: Mindcrime, which is Geoff Tate's band, just released a lyric video for their new song "Under Control." It's from the upcoming album A New Reality, which comes out next month. This isn't Queensryche, but you should still give it a chance.

People are divided on Tate, but I always back him. I saw the Trinity tour last year with Ripper and Blaze and he sounded great. If you see Fake-Ryche now, they don't even play any songs off their last 2 records with the copycat singer. Just songs written by Tate and DeGarmo.

Team Tate

Not only that but their new material is ultra basic, generic, bland stuff. Def not the same band anymore. I prefer Tate's solo stuff, myself. But do wish they could link up again.

I lost interest in The Ryche when Chris DeGarmo lost interest in The Ryche.....

I’m with BK ... Can they just put it all aside? Go to rationale is, “Hey, if Van Halen & Roth and Axl & Slash can get back together, why not these guys?”

Oh, to hear “Queen Of The Ryche” by the original line-up once again! That is, if Tate can sing. Last time I saw them at M3 several years ago, Tate couldn’t sing his way out of a paper bag!

the song is meh. the video is bland. i just don’t understand the lyric video craze.
as for tate vs. rÿche - neither play much of their new material because most of the crowd just wants to hear songs from the first 5 releases.

O:MC, Alice in Chains would like parts of several of their songs back. And they won't lend you a lyricist or a singer.

New Ryche: not very inspiring on vinyl, but good in concert.

Tate: shot when it comes to old songs, but still managing to be a captivating (within a narrow range) frontman.

The problem with waving "Team Tate" pom-poms is that you end up being a ringer for a guy who shot himself in his own money-belt. And I say that as a person who thinks that the remaining members of the original band hide behind a sanctimonious veil if they think that they weren't, at least in part, responsible for the band's slide in recent decades. Thing is, Tate provided them with a very useful cover for their own sloth.

I don't tend to believe all of anything either side says, though I will say that Ryche have been more graceful and, in the case of the new singer, more respectful overall. But what of it? They fight for a narrow ledge on which a small crumb of an existing fan base exists/subsists. They claw for a low rung in the clubs when not gaining some place on a larger stage (and on that level, the new Ryche is winning).

Phew! Ryche is again in the news. All sides win. Right?
