  Savatage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Savatage is a heavy metal/progressive metal band founded by the brothers Jon and Criss Oliva in 1979.
Chris Caffery, who had been playing with Savatage on their 1987 tour as a second rhythm player offstage and out of audience sight, was introduced as a new band member in 1988.
By this time, Savatage was taking as much fire for their "Broadway-Metal" aspirations as they were praise; while there was no doubt that Trans-Siberian Orchestra albums had found an audience, many older, more long-term Savatage fans complained of a lack of any real difference between the sounds of Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Savatage.

 Savatage - Satan Stole My Teddybear
Their 80s output is a considerably less confusing soap opera than what transpired over the course of the 90s when the band was faced with horrible tragedies, constantly changing lineups and side projects that seemingly were better received than the main band.
Many Savatage fans cite this disc as their favorite, so evident is its importance in their musical evolution.
It is a union between the earlier roots of the band and the new intensely artistic side of the group.

In the course of their twenty or so years of existence, Savatage has developed into one of the leading metal/hard rock bands around.
Their earlier work is harder, more power-metal oriented, while the later albums have more of an accessible hard rock sound, with with slight progressive touches.
The later albums are less my style, but their maturity and musicianship is quite evident, and thus the band has maintained a solid following throughout their career.

Savatage would never sound like this again, although they may reach heavyness like this on 2001's POETS & MADMEN, the sound and textures on here and 1984's DUNGEONS ARE CALLING go unmatched in Savatage's massive catalog, and that's too bad, but it makes this album and the next just that more special
Getting back to the music, this is some of the best stuff EVER released by the band and it shows them at the best time in their career, before the musical direction changes and personal tragedies/line-up changes.
Fans of later Savatage albums with the opera-metal overtones may not like the more straight-forward metal approach, but give it a try, Savatage is just that great of a band who produced great music in any era since their inception.

The untitled track is a laid back acoustic guitar piece, but the others are vintage Savatage, and totally fit the mood of the rest of the album.
Unfortunately the Silver Anniversary Edition does not contain the two bonus tracks from the earlier version, so Savatage completists (like me) need to have each version in their collection.
To get the full story you'll have to get the Silver Edition of Dungeons are Calling as well, but I figure die-hard Savatage fans would plan on buying that one anyway.

Great band from New York formed by brothers Jon/Chris Oliva that started in 1981 under the name of AVATAR, and late in 1983 change the name to SAVATAGE, date when they released his first work "Sirens".
At the beginning of their career the musical style was oriented to classic 80´s Heavy Metal, but in 1989 they change a bit his music introducing more keyboards and giving a symphonic/metal sound to his works.
Besides SAVATAGE, most of his members play on a side-project called TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, a orchestra-metal band with three albums, first two oriented to Christmas sound and the last one is a concept album about Beethoven music (this one especially recomended).
