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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Raise the fist of the metal child! May 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1985, Power of the Night was Florida-based heavy metal band Savatage's third release, and follows the same path as Sirens and Dungeons Are Calling. Forget spandex and power ballads, this is metal for metal's sake. Songs like "Power of the Night" and "Warriors" are pure metal anthems, and are great representatives of the early American power metal sound. The Oliva brothers continue to improve their songwriting abilities, though there are a few less than stellar moments ("Skull Session" comes to mind). There's some really impressive guitar work from Criss Oliva (RIP) and Jon Oliva's vocals are just wild.

If you're a Savatage fan, Power of the Night is a must-have album. I'd also highly recommend it to fans of the early American heavy/power metal sound. Savatage had not yet moved into their epic rock opera stage, so enjoy Power of the Night for what it is - fast and furious power metal madness!

Edition Notes: SPV reissued Power of the Night in 2002. Sadly, it has not been remastered, but it does have a few extras that might make you consider replacing your older version. It features two bonus tracks - live versions of "Power of the Night" and "Sirens" - but the real bonus is that the liner notes have been expanded to include several pages of very detailed information about the band during this particular stage of their career. When added to the chapters from the other SPV Savatage reissues, you'll get the real story behind one of the best (and most underrated) metal bands of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power Of My Stereo! April 22, 2001
By Shawn H
Format:Audio CD
And so it was released many years ago... Classic Savatage here folks, this is truly one of their best, and may be one of the greatest metal albums ever. If you are a bit older like myself and remember the glory days of metal (not that they haven't left mind you, metal is still here and going strong)I'm sure you remember the anthems and chords that pumped your fist into the air. Well, here they are, a few of them at least, but it is some of the Olivas greatest work. Driving tunes one and all, a crushing giant of a record. How can you even describe something like this? Even those this was Savatage's greatest era of their incredible career, it should not be forgotten or put aside to collect dust. Such an incredible car crashing, head banging title track. Wonderful other bits include Warriors, Unusual, Washed Out and some X-rated (of sorts, not by this day and age tho) fanfare in Necrophilia and Skull Session. Get in your cars and drive!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal at it's peak... July 26, 2001
By N@N
Format:Audio CD
Who can forget Savatage and the Olivas? They may not be the most popular metal band (...'cause some metal lovin' people haven't heard of them) but they sure will arouse your metal-side and bang your head with melodic riffs and enchanting rythms. Savatage just kicks me off when I'm feelin' freakin' frustrated or down, it's their music that keeps me on the road. I don't know why but all I know is that Heavy Metal music is incomplete without the Classic SAVATAGE. Thanks for ...RAISING THE FIST OF THE METAL CHILD.

This has all the makings of a classic album. From the title track all the way through you will have a sore neck by the end of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Savatage - Power Of The Night November 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Power Of The Night is the second full-length studio album by the American Heavy/Power/Progressive Metal band Savatage, which was produced by Max Norman and released in 1985, following up their 1983 debut album Sirens and their 1984 EP The Dungeons Are Calling.

Stylistically; as opposed to the conceptual, symphonic, piano filled, Progressive Metal sound that the band would later adopt, or the commercial sound of the Fight For The Rock album which the band veered into just once; this album is more in the vein of their debut album.

The sound in question is somewhere around the point where classic metal becomes early Power Metal while sounding close to, but not quite Thrash Metal yet (although `Washed Out' is kind of reminiscent of the first two Overkill albums).

As an album, Power Of The Night is good, but it isn't perfect. In terms of songwriting, its not the most creative or memorable thing that the band have ever done, and there are a few tracks that don't stand up all that well against the best of the band's catalogue. The production isn't exactly fantastic either and so the songs don't jump out at you as energetically as they do on say, Hall Of The Mountain King.

That being said however, there is still a lot to like about the album and if you like the band its worth checking out. Standout tracks include the Title Track with its memorable lead riff; `Hard For Love' which is an out of place Kiss-esque Hard Rock number with hilariously cheesy sexually suggestive lyrics and the big ballady album closer `In The Dream' which has an absolutely fabulous guitar solo.

Overall; Power Of The Night is an interesting album and worth considering for your collection. There are better Savatage albums to start with admittedly, but if you enjoy the Jon's voice or Chris' distinctive riff and solo sounds and want to hear them play some direct, to the point, powerful classic metal then its definitely worth picking up.

The CD is awesome. Great music from a great band. When they became Trans-Siberian Orchestra, they only got better. They are excellent story tellers. Looking forward to more of the same.
