Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP "Queensrÿche". They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album "The Warning" in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order", Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's.

In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album"Operation:Mindcrime", which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Empire" in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV "viewers choice" award for the #1 chart topping hit "Silent Lucidity". During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold out audiences. Queensrÿche has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.

Hailing from NYC, Gothic Knights was formed in 1990 by guitarist John Tzantis with a vision of crafting a unique brand of epic power metal. After gaining label interest from its 1994 demo To Hell and Back, the band released its 1996 self-titled debut and 1999 Kingdom of the Knights albums on Sentinel Steel Records. In 2003, the band released its third CD Up from the Ashes on Limb Music, further establishing the band as a force and endearing presence in the world's heavy metal scene. Over the years, the band has played countless shows, opening for national acts and participating in several U.S. festivals. The band released their latest CD “Reflections from the Other Side” worldwide in the Summer of 2012, which garnered excellent reviews by the metal press!
