5 stars Forget "Operation Mindcrime II", Queensryche is dead...Long live Veni Domine!!! And it's really hard for me to say that, since Queensryche have for sure been crucial for the "comeback" of progressive since their masterpiece from 1988 (almost 20 years, I can't believe it!!!). Veni Domine 23:59 is a masterpiece anno 2006. The same dark atmosphere, the wonderfull mix of synphonic keyboards and metal guitars, a marvellous voice...Shivers down the spine! This is what every Queensryche fan has been waiting for since "Empire". Veni Domine pay their tribute to the masters, of course, one can't deny it...but it's not a copy, not at all. Only the mood, the colour of the music is the same. New melodies, new balances between real prog and real metal...Everything is there. This album really deserves a chance! It's a pity, EMI didn't sign Veni Domine, instead. Hey, but there's hope!
