Born in Germany, the original singer of "Operation: Mindcrime", Geoff Tate, is undoubtedly one of the best Heavy Metal singers of his generation.

In the second half of the 80s, he defined the Progressive Metal genre with albums such as "Rage For Order" (1986), "Operation: Mindcrime" (1988) and "Empire" (1990). "Operation: Mindcrime" was one of the first metal concept albums so popular today, but he was also able to score numerous hits during the then commercial metal wave with successful individual songs.

Pushed by the music video channel MTV, several singles from the "Empire" album ran on heavy rotation almost everywhere. The most successful of these was in 1991 to a US Top10 single hit, the ballad "Silent Lucidity".
