Promised Land is the fifth studio album by the American heavy metal band Queensrÿche and their highest charting record to date. It was released by EMI on October 18, 1994, four years after their successful Empire album. The songs on this album are tied together firmly by the themes of success and aging, and reflections on American society and how that shapes our goals and dreams in life.

Queensrÿche returned from a four-year absence with Promised Land only to find the hard rock landscape very different than the one they left in 1990. But Queensrÿche did something smart. Instead of trying to adjust themselves to fit into the world that their Seattle brethren had created, they simply stayed the same. Not only was the record a commercial success - it went gold in four months - but it was also an engaging album. Promised Land lacks the conceptual unity and consistent songwriting of Operation: Mindcrime, but it makes it clear that the band hasn't run out of ideas yet.

Promised Land" is not the Queensryche album that the fans could have come to expect. The title of course is laced with irony. The promised land that fame and success should have lead to was not the paradise one would have believed and, as the band members themselves admitted, Queensryche learned this the hard way. Consequently the album largely reflects this feeling of disillusionment and disappointment both lyrically and musically. It is in this album that Queensryche most closely resembles Pink Floyd ca. "Animals" or "The Wall".

But Promised Land is definitely an acquired taste as there is quite a lot less metal here than on previous releases, and even Queensryche's commercial aspects have been moreless forgotten. Promised Land is quiet, subtle and brooding, filled with melancholy and even a hint of genuine darkness. The lyrics detail some rather disturbing subject matter from mental health to broken families, which perfectly match the laid back, but explosive music. There are only three real "heavy" songs on here, and the first, "I Am I" is largely forgettable. Promised Land ' is the first of the non-Metal Queensryche albums and as such, their second to last good album. This album is best categorized as 'Dark Progressive Rock'.
