It looks like Queensrÿche’s Todd La Torre is contemplating new solo material. The frontman says he is currently “working on ideas for [his] next record.”
Todd said the following:
“Working on ideas for my next record. I’m looking to do something with more open chords, a more classic distortion sound, and a little less palm muted riffs. Open chords and space always allow for a more diverse vocal to be created, and without a good vocal melody, you don’t have anything memorable or worth a damn. Less is more in many cases.
While I love Rejoice in the Suffering, I am not exactly wanting to do another record just like that. I believe Craig and I can do something even better, and much more musical (the word that comes to mind). The best songs were never with overplaying or too complex. I just want to write great songs, whatever that ends up being. Maybe this idea will turn into a great chorus idk, but it doesn’t hurt to at least capture the ideas.
Recording this with my 1981 Ibanez Destroyer II, Kemper, into ProTools.”
