Todd La Torre - 'Apology' (official music video)

Todd La Torre - 'Rejoice In The Suffering'
Προσωπικό δίσκο κυκλοφόρησε τον πρόπερσι ο Todd La Torre. Τιτλοφορείται "Rejoice In The Suffering" και "βγήκε" τον Φεβρουάριο του 2021 από την Rat Pak Records σε cd και διπλό βινύλιο. Ο δίσκος θα (επανα)κυκλοφορήσει στην Ευρώπη τον επόμενο μήνα (21 Απριλίου 2023) μέσω της Rock of Angels Records (επίσης cd και διπλό βινύλιο) χωρίς επιπλέον τραγούδια.

Ο Todd La Torre έγινε γνωστός (κυρίως στην Florida) ως drummer σε διάφορα hard και heavy σχήματα. O Matt LaPorte των Jon Oliva's Pain τον άκουσε να τραγουδά, τον πρότεινε στον κιθαρίστα των Crimson Glory (Jon Drenning) και κάπως έτσι μας συστήθηκε ως τραγουδιστής.

Πρώτος σταθμός οι Crimson Glory (δυστυχώς δεν προχώρησαν σε δίσκο, αν κι υπάρχει το "ημιεπίσημο" single "Garden Of Shadows"). Ακολούθησαν οι Queensrÿche, στους οποίους παραμένει μέχρι και τις ημέρες μας...

Δελτίο τύπου: «As global touring came to a sudden and unexpected halt within 2020, Queensrÿche frontman Todd La Torre has been using his pandemic downtime to put the finishing touches on his debut solo album Rejoice In The Suffering.

The idea for a solo album was always in the cards for Todd. With Queensrÿche tour dates postponed, the world events offered Todd the opportunity to explore his ideas for Rejoice In The Suffering.

Todd teamed up with longtime friend and collaborator Craig Blackwell, alongside Zeuss for mixing and mastering, creating a diverse heavy 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 before that. Rejoice In The Suffering was released on February 5, 2021 via Rat Pak Records.

ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records is now giving this gem of an album a proper full-scale EUROPEAN release, on CD as well as two luxurious vinyl versions!

“Rejoice In The Suffering was truly a labor of love. It’s a pure metal record that certainly showcases a wide range of my vocal abilities.

I feel there is something for any true fan of metal on this album. This album is full of groove, dynamics, power, and substance and I can’t wait for people to hear it,” explains Todd La Torre.

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 of heavy metal.

Playing drums and recording the vocals for the album, songs like “Darkened Majesty” and “Critical Cynic” offer an inside look into the musical mind of La Torre.

Craig Blackwell’s guitar playing provides the perfect musical accents to La Torre’s vocals.

Todd even finds vocal wails not heard from him before as showcased on the title track and the punishing “Vanguards of the Dawn Wall."»
