Biography

Savatage was born in the suburbs of Tampa, Florida in the early 1980's—the product of two brothers, Jon (vocals and keyboards) and Criss (guitar) Oliva, plus hard-hitting drummer Steve "Doc" Wacholz. Savatage quickly developed a loyal following throughout Florida, and in 1983, the band released its debut album, Sirens. The following year, Savatage signed to Atlantic ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Savatage - Hall Of The Mountain King 28 Aug 2012
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Savatage's fourth studio album Hall Of The Mountain King is a cult classic Heavy Metal album, that was released in 1987 and which was the starting point in the band's gradual evolution from a more traditional 80s Metal band into a Progressive Metal band.

Sonically, the album shares moments of Power Metal, NWOBHM, Progressive Metal & Thrash Metal without ever really settling on one or the other for a real long time, although in a way that always feels natural rather than a schizophrenic shifting between disjointed styles. If you come in to it expecting one particular thing then it may be confusing or even a bit annoying, indeed people often argue over what subgenre Savatage actually are since they sit perfectly on the borders of so many, but if you can stop yourself over-analyzing it in comparison to any set of genre boundaries, you'll get to hear a damn fine album of well written, quintessentially '80s sounding Metal.

Jon Olivia has a powerful voice that goes from throaty low pitched shouting to Dickinson & Halford style theatrics and melodies at a moments notice. Equally, the rest of the band are all impressive at their instruments, with each member shining at one point of the album or other, from a bass-centric intro to a lengthy guitar solo or some interesting drum fills everyone shows what they can do in a restrained but still impressive fashion.

The whole record flows really well and not a moment feels wasted or out of place, the production suits the musical direction perfectly and the album overall just feels satisfying. Its easy to see why it always makes it into lists of best metal albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Metal 26 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I first heard the title track when I was about 13 and it got me crazy about Savatage, just the one song. So I bought the album and it is now most definetely one of favourites.
From the glass-shattering '24 Hours Ago' to the melodic 'Strange Wings', this album, especially if you're a fan of power metal, will have you hooked. It represents what power-metal should be, meaningful, heavy and owning a certain sense of aura, unlike many power metal bands today, who mainly focus on speed.
I could only give it 5 stars, but this is worthy of 10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad release, as far as re-issues go... 14 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is just one of all 14 releases being re-issued as a special digipak, which when stacked or lined up on the bookshelf with all the others as a complete set, the spines display the Savatage logo. Some albums contain bonus tracks (half of which were relased on previous re-issues in 1997 and 2002), and others contain brand new acoustic renditions of Savatage songs, by Jon Oliva.

However, there are a number of grievances I have about this set, which really hurt the integrity and overall quality of this latest incarnate of the Savatage library, things that cost this collection a full 5-stars (for EACH album) in my reviews...

First of all, these were released completely random and all out of chornological order (pretty stupid move, if you ask me), so anyone with mild OCD dispositions (like myself) may be tortured by having to make the choice between sorting them in their proper order, or in the mixed-up, re-released sequence, JUST to display the spines' logo "puzzle" correctly.

Secondly (and speaking of the spine-logo "puzzle"), while there are indeed only 14 studio albums from Savatage (including the mini-album/EP, THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING), the first two albums (SIRENS, and the mini-album/EP THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING) have been compiled together onto one CD, and entitled as "SIRENS & THE DUNGEONS ARE CALLING : The Complete Sessions".

So what is the 14th disc? Well, I didn't think there even WAS one, thinking the SIRENS and TDAC in a "twofer" format was still counted as "two spearate" albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80's heavy metal! 10 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
This Savatage album came along after a failed attempt to break into the US charts with over the top (poor) arena rock on the previous CD.

realising where their true strengths lay, savatage hit us with this true masterpiece of metal. Some of the riffs and leads found in here are (in my humble opinion) some of the greatest ever written in the history of metal... thus was the genius of the late Criss Oliva. His brother Jon also excells with truely fantastic vocals.... all set behind the backdrop of great songwriting.

The songs range from the more stereotypical 80's anthems (strange wings) to the simply epic Hall of the mountain king..... not a weak link to be found aside from a slight filler track or two towards the end. All in all i find this to be savatages finest moment, combining all that was great about this band in a single crushing release.

Any fan of 80's metal should have this one safely nestled in their collection already, for those who havent yet, get clicking..... a masterpiece.

95/100

I bought Savatage's album after a week of hearing the destructive song 'Hall of the Mountain King'. I thought this was a great song, which lead me onto the album. Read more
