Savatage

Savatage formed in Florida in 1978 as Avatar, led by brothers Jon (vocals) and Criss (guitar) Oliva. They changed their name to Savatage in 1983, pursuing a strongly Judas Priest- and Iron Maiden-influenced style of metal. Their other members included Steve "Doc" Wacholz (drums) and Keith Collins (bass), who was later replaced by Johnny Lee Middleton. They meandered between basic metal and more commercial fare before adding second guitarist Chris Caffery and hitting their stride in 1990 with Gutter Ballet. The band showed a flair for intense, melodic hard rock, dramatic balladry, and elaborate, operatic concepts, which they pursued over their next few albums. Criss Oliva was killed in an auto accident in 1993; he was replaced by former Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, but the new lineup was ill-received. Dead Winter Dead followed in 1995, and after a three-year absence Savatage returned with The Wake of Magellan. The Final Bell appeared in 2000, and Poets and Madmen followed it in 2001. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

love this song. my favorite savatage song
Funny how TSO really came from these guys. First time I heard Christmas Eve Sarajevo was on Dead Winter Dead, now it's played every Christmas and falls under TSO, though will always be a Savatage song to me.
The new NEWSTED band sound a lot like these guys.
This band has always Rocked !!!
In The Hall Of The Mountain King and Gutter Ballet. Just 2 reasons among many to love this band!
Cross oliva was better any guitarist I've heard nowadays show how much music today f**king sucks the truth is the truth
Good song

Now THIS is a metal band, better than this new crap that's called metal.
Savatage is trans siberian orchestra
Some of my favorite bands come from thrift store. The Gutter ballet album was really was the start of me finding out that there so many underated bands ready to be found. So savatage is really special to me. There pure metal!
nicko252008
Awesome band LOVE Savatage, pure METAL!!
so under rated, loved Gutter Ballet!
Dude the bio sucks. They left out Power of the Night. That's bull!

Dead Winter Dead, Handful of Rain, Edge of Thorns I grew up with, sad to see two of those are missing :(
There is no Power Of The Night or Sirens in catalogue. Pathetic. My favorite 2 of theirs.

Agree jondavis. +1. Horrible Bio
What a shame tso was never mentioned. A lot of people know the history even though a PBS special was selling and promoting TSO as a fund raiser for their Public Broadcasting Savatage was never mentioned even though Jon Olivia was interviewed on the promotion or maybe I missed something. SKITS5150
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
it was grt growing up with the band and hanging out at pit first show was at astro skate hrd to believe it will be10yrs since chris was killed wont never 4get that ngt at livestock
The bio...who the hell does the research here? Lineup with skolnick ill received? No way you could say that as the entire tour and recordings they did with Alex were pretty much in tribute to Criss. If you ask me that live lineup was actually the best one next to the original. and no way was it ill received. Jag offs.

Blew a speaker back in '89 playing Gutter Ballet for my girlfriend! One of the all time greats.
For me my favorite album is streets
I first heard this band back on 92 when a friend of got this album by error from Columbia music club
I agree, the bio stinks. You'd think they'd mention that Savatage became hugely successful under the name Trans-Siberi a n Orchestra.
Saw them in 88 with Dio and Megadeth
Great show from all.
This bio blows...miss i n g some albums in discography too, but one of the best bands ever so I can overlook the omissions cause I know the real deal. ...'Tage forever!
Awesome!!XD

Dead Winter Dead is their best album. Why is it not available?
Saw them open for Motorhead in 86 in Germany and then again in 89 in North carolina. Tops for sure ,
All That I Bleed is absolutely one of my all time favorite songs!!! I can remember listening to it over and over again.
Hey Ihme67nj60, I did the same to that album. That vinyl skips all over the place! Hearing this, Dungeons, Sirens, reminds me of good 'ol times.
Just recently heard Jon Oliva's Pain - check it if u haven't already! Back to the Savatage!
The bio doesn't even mention streets
Wore out Power Of The Night in '85. So underrated, if today's metal only knew!!
Lame bio. Where's the Dungeons are Calling and Sirens? Cant' get enough of these guys! Bought Dungeons on tape back in like 87.
@jdccfogm - I saw 'em at the Whale too! What a crazy freakin dive that was! I saw a lot of great shows there though - that's for sure!
2nd only to the Priest in my eyes
I am a Metal Child because of them
Criss Oliva-great guitarist-th a t boy could throw down!
I was at the Thirsty Whale in Chicago when I saw them the first time.
What a killer concert.
great band!
Savatage forever! I'll be 70 and still rocking to them
lame bio to one of my favs ever. some mentioned sirens, tells me you are old school. 1st concert I ever went to was savatage megedeth dio. here's some titles for ya.....the dungeons are calling. sirens. power of the night. fight for the rock. fall of the mountain king. gutter ballet. streets (which IS THE BEST concept album EVER, sorry no contest, cant argue)
Not only awesome to listen to; they kick arse in concert!!! Their show is phenomenal!
I lost interest in this band when I bought EDGE OF THORNS, and I thought, 'What? No Jon Oliva?'
@mltbran... Chris Caffery was in Savatage on the Hall Of The Mountain King tour, though he played off stage. He was also credited on the Gutter Ballet CD but did not play on it. He didn't record on Streets, but was featured in the videos. He then left the band but returned as a full time member on Dead Winter Dead. Alex Skolnick bearly played on Handful of Rain maybe a few solos and that's it, the rest was Jon Oliva.
@Logan7566 Jeff Plate, while one of my favorite drummers has absolutely ZERO so
how can it be that no one mentions Jeff Plate who wrote Dead Winter Dead.... One of the main contributors to TSO's existence!!! !

I cant believe the pathetic bio they have for this band. For as long as they created astounding music, and then bled into TSO that bio should be a full page. Musically they were pretty much on another level.

what happened to sirens//?
Gutter Ballet was my introduction to Savatage back in early 90's, when Z rock used to play them on the radio. Bought just about everything they put out since.
Really underrated band
I love just about every Savatage instrumental I have heard, for whatever reason. I have also heard good things about Pitrelli in the past.
