TODD La TORRE (Queensrÿche) – Rejoice In The Suffering [Deluxe Edition +3] (2021)

As global touring came to a sudden and unexpected halt earlier this year, Queensrÿche frontman TODD La TORRE has been using his recent pandemic downtime to put the finishing touches on his debut solo album ”Rejoice In The Suffering”.
Todd teamed up with longtime friend and collaborator Craig Blackwell and alongside producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris created a diverse metal album that draws influence from different styles. These styles will surprise fans who only know La Torre from his previous work with Queensrÿche or Crimson Glory.
Heavy, but still melodic, these songs are full of groove, dynamics, power, and substance. From the album’s opening riffs of “Dogmata” to the vocal acrobatics that drive the album closer “Apology,” it is apparent that Todd La Torre has a true love for classic metal.
