If you’re unfamiliar with Queensrÿche, let me quickly catch you up to speed. In an era of hair metal bands, there was Queensrÿche. A political thought provoking metal band with a progressive no nonsense sound that briefly catapulted to superstardom. They are bold and controversial, but they are amazing. So let’s bypass all the talk and get to the point of this article/video.
In 1992, Queensrÿche went unplugged and perform their iconic hit Silent Lucidity. The song is elegant, yet rather eerie. This is obviously a song that any band would pride themselves on, and rightfully so.
As you hear this masterpiece, you’ll hear the beauty that is being discussed, and you’ll hear the eeriness. As with anything from Queensrÿche, the performance is absolutely stellar in every way. If you didn’t know any better, you’d probably say that they were just playing along to a recording, and that is certainly what it sounds like, but is it? You be the judge!
