4 stars The beginning of an era. The metal band "The Mob" persuaded locally renowned Prog-rock loving vocalist Geoff Tate to join the band. After a name change Queensryche were ready to release their first 4-track E.P. This record shows more the Metallic sound of the Ryche rather than their Progressive elements and tendencies, it is however an excellent first effort.

1. Queen Of The Reich: Soaring vocals from Tate mixed with crunching riffs, a great song. (8.5/10)

2. Nightrider: Some interesting riffing and a nice solo makes for an enjoyable track. (7.5/10)

3. Blinded: Straight up metal, good energy in this song. (7.5/10)

4. The Lady Wore Black: The standout track on the E.P, a Queensryche classic. (9/10)

Overall: 79/100
