Put your umlauts in order: Longtime metal monster Queensrÿche is out treading the boards while enjoying its highest profile in years. 2007 will see the release of three titles by the Seattle stalwarts. First came the Mindcrime at the Moore DVD, a hometown performance (including onstage actors) of the band's cult concept albums, Operation Mindcrime and Operation Mindcrime II. Next was the recently released greatest-hits package titled Sign of the Times.

And finally, Rhino is set to drop Take Cover, a collection of cover tunes, in November. In keeping with its proggy edge, the band tackles some unusual choices, including classics by the O'Jays, the Police, and even a nugget from Jesus Christ Superstar.

But don't fret: Queensrÿche is sure to perform all its big hits tonight, especially the 1990 power-ballad "Silent Lucidity."
