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

Great group, butI'm surprised that nothing was mentioned about the group morphing into The Trans-Siberi a n Orchestra.

I love Savatage. Zachary Stevens has some of the best vocals I have heard.

at least for this band they should put sirens and power of the night on here pandora should really do that this would be recommended and better for savatage fans and it would complete there albums from the 80s come on pandora

Fronkus: Your point isn't very clear. Gutter Ballet was a commercial stride because it sold far better than any earlier album. I've been a fan since seeing Hall of the Mountain King on Headbanger's Ball in '87 or '88. Slamming a bio because you don't like the best selling album makes you sound like the 22-year old idiot. There are gems on the earlier albums, but in my opinion the band took a while to consistently write original sounding music (beginning, in my view, with HOTMK).

Strange - no Power of the Night or Sirens!

Hitting stride in gutter ballet? Seriously? Are you like 22 with I idiotic ear lobe s**t and lame tats that "say something meaningful" and never had pe or sports in school and were homeschooled with long hair like a woman cause you mom let you raise yourself?

Chriss rocked Brandon Florida in the early eighties with his brother. Together they were hard. Doc pounded those sticks and the Brandon Pub was the place to be. Missed a lot of night shifts at Albertson's because they would be playing. Would not change a thing. Some of the best times head bangging to avatar.

Alex Skolnick's appearance with the band was short lived,,he was replaced by Al Petrelli who, along with Jon Olivia and Johnny Lee Middleton, teamed up with producer Paul O'Neil and Robert Kinkle to form Trans Siberian Orchestra. Alex did return to tour with TSO for a couple of years before returning to the thrash band Testament.

Savatage IS and always will be the best. Preast nor any other band will ever compare to these guys. Sad thing is, is that Streets was never mentioned in the bio and was only mentioned by a few on the comment section.

Their song Prelude To Madness from In The Hall Of The Mountain King features an arrangement of Edward Hagerup Griegs Hall Of The Mountain King from Peer Gynt and Mars The Bringer Of War by Gustav Holst's in his suite The Planets.
