Queensryche Vocalist Todd La Torre on The MetalSucks Podcast #275
Queensryche vocalist Todd La Torre of Queensryche joins our show this week. We talk about the band’s new album, The Verdict, the role producer Zeuss played in the recording process, Todd’s contributions to the drums on the album, how the conflict in Syria become a lyrical inspiration and how the artwork was inspired by laws that create social injustices. Todd also tells us about his passion for documentary films, the importance of becoming informed to stop polarization and how to deliver certain messages in a hyper-sensitive culture. Finally, we get an update on the absence of founding drummer Scott Rockenfield and we learn how the band’s live setlist on their upcoming tour with Fates Warning will feature more of their new material.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn address Maynard’s timeline on the new Tool record, Ozzy’s recent hospitalization, Staind’s Aaron Lewis saying more stupid shit, Maroon 5’s Super Bowl tattoo extravaganza and much more.
