Sweet Oblivion sees the legendary former Queensryche and current Operation: Mindcrime singer
Geoff Tate teaming up with a stellar cast of Italian musicians led by Simone Mularoni, the mastermind
behind prog metal masters DGM. Musically, this album marks a return to a more melodic metal style
for Tate and showcases a fine collection of songs that also highlights the talent of Mularoni and his
hand picked ensemble. “I was approached by Frontiers to do this record and am pleased I took the
chance,” says Tate. “It’s an album filled with fun and I believe a lot of the fans who dig the old
Queensryche sound will enjoy this!” Adds Mularoni: “I grew up listening to 70’s and 80’s rock and
metal bands and, of course, Queensryche’s classic albums are among my favourites ever. Having the
opportunity and luck of working together with a musical giant like Geoff has been a real blessing on
both the human and the artistic side. I asked a few amazing musicians and friends to help me out and
together we delivered a bunch of classic heavy rock songs in which I tried to fuse a contemporary
approach with a classic Queensryche vibe….the performances are amazing!” Excellent musicianship
and a sound that harkens back to the massive melodies and hooks of classic albums like ‘Empire’,
‘Rage For Order’ and ‘Operation: Mindcrime’. Enjoy!
