Image of Savatage


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 Killer Live Album! December 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm normally not big on live albums, but I have to admit, Savatage's Live in Japan hooked me from start to finish! If you like the albums, Handful of Rain and Edge of Thorns, then you can't go wrong with this live set! Alex Skolnick, ex-Testament, stands in the place of Chris Oliva for the lead guitar slot, and he earned my respect after listening to this. I use to be a big Testament fan in the 80's, but that style of music must have held him back some, because Mr. Skolnick really shines on this live album. So, if you are like me, and can't wait to see Savatage live, this is the next best thing, with the exception of a DVD! What do you say O'Neil/Oliva and company? How about a live DVD sometime? If you are a big Sava fan, you can't go wrong with this effort! Stay Heavy

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! March 3, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A perfect one. I have a question though: How on Earth did this AAAA quality band manage to remain underground????? They never made that huge success they deserved more than any other looser out there...such a shame.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Zach Stevens era live blitz October 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As an adjunct to the Jon Oliva sung live collection `Ghost in the Ruins' this album is an interesting proposition. It's also a good album taken in isolation. Recorded on the 1994 tour for the Handful of Rain album with Alex Skolnick substituting for the deceased Criss Oliva, as he had done on Handful of Rain.

Kicking off with the barnstorming Taunting Cobras from the Handful of Rain set the band (and therefore album) quickly locks into a full blooded groove launching as it does into Edge of Thorns and a truncated Chance (sans the preschool vocal melodies of the studio original). The power of Zach Stevens' throat is flexed fully on numbers such as Nothin' Going On and He Carves His Stone before proceedings change feel for Jesus Saves, one of the more salvageable moments off the reviled Streets: A Rock Opera album. The mid section of the concert then moves into slightly slower but still very classy metal territory with the Watching You Fall and Castles Burning both acquitting themselves well. The band sound particularly on which is interesting given the personnel shuffling that had gone on shortly prior to this tour.

As the live set develops we get quality versions of the introspective All That I Bleed and then things pick up towards the end with Handful of Rain, Sirens and Gutter Ballet. During this live set former vocalist Jon Oliva does some guest vocals and twinkles the ivories and the production captures the live ambience of proceedings well by allowing the songs to breath. While uncredited on my copy, I'm guessing that the bands usual producer Paul O'Neill is responsible for the knob job.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good "Live" album! January 22, 2002
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
This album captures Savatage at its best w/o Chris Oliva. From start to finish the album will not dissappoint. Tracks like Jesus Saves, Sirens, Chance and All that I bleed, the album kicks into high gear from the start.
