I don't doubt you like Saxon. Lots of us here do. The point was one person liking Saxon doesn't disprove what gilp was saying

Because, frankly, nobody cares about Saxon, no matter how good or bad the albums are, and Queensryche is in that same boat. No more than 2000 people are going to see them in almost every market even if they put out friggin Abbey Road.
Saxon was never as popular as QR were at their peak.


For the following reasons, I think QR will gain some more popularity. How much is hard to say at this point, but I have a good feeling for the following reasons, it will increase:

1. The fact that the album sales from Dedicated To Chaos to the new album increased tells me they'll probably increase more with the next release as more word gets out by the fans of how much they have improved.

2. Everyone on Facebook and the forums is loving the album and have a reason to spread the word about it.

3. The same people are loving Todd's vocals and again will spread the word to others about how amazing he is.

Before, there weren't any good reasons for fans to spread the word about this band, but now there are. I know this is all a bit repetitive, but now maybe others on here will realize why there is a good possibility that we will see an increase in popularity for this band.

Well done for missing the point, again, but in such a long-winded way.

The poster never said anything about Saxon ever being at the same level of popularity as Queensryche was at their peak. All that was stated is that both bands are at the same level right now which is pretty much right on. As usual you're fandom for this band makes you blind to the points people are making.

I just wish people would be a little more open minded on this and at least be open to the possibility that QR could gain some more popularity than they currently have. Based on the 3 reasons I gave, I feel it is a possibility.

It's not that we don't think it's possible for them to gain some popularity back. It's that no one believes for a second they'll gain back the amount you think they will.

Well, I would like to add another point. Empire sold over 3 million copies and after that, they started to go downhill. So, this is a band who has a lot of potential fans out there who may not even be aware of what has been going on and again, if the word keeps getting around to those fans from the Empire days and they are able to hear the new album, QR could gain many of their past fans back again. If just 1/3 of the people who bought Empire could be reached, that would be 1 million fans here in the USA. Now, that's really dreaming, but once tatewreck gets his crap farewell tour out of the way, that dream could come true. Well, that's what I'd love to see of course!

No one outside of heavy metal gives two shits about Queensryche. That's just the truth of it. They will never be "popular" again outside of their niche genre ever again.
