    Also, Jon's solo record is available on amazon.com for pre-order, just ordered mine today!! Seems like yesterday that Tage Mahal was coming out and here we are four records later!

    Xandoren, I was lucky enough to catch him in 2008 and it was a fantastic show. Would love to see them again. Sadly Jon's fan base in the states isn't as high as in other countries, so I can understand the lack of touring (the show I was at had maybe 200 people there), but you'd think they'd at least pair up with another group and do a full US tour.

    I like old classic Savatage, but honestly my favorite albums of theirs are the later ones from the 90s, and I enjoy JoP even more. His songwriting gets better with age.

    @Leodoom would you rather him suffer a massive stroke or heart attack and lose him early? He is one of the best voices in metal, lets not lose him. He needs to lose a bit of weight.

    I agree, except for "Poets and Madmen". I takes a lot to top that.

    Wow. I listened to Maniacal Renderings for the first (and second) time yesterday and... did anyone else get the impression this is way better than all the kickass stuff Savatage put out? Or is it an expectation thing? So overjoyed at this door being opened.

    Damnit, I just now read about Matt LaPorte. I can't believe it. What a great guitarist, got to see him live once, Rest In Peace.

    @ClassyMusicSnob: NOO!! Jon must'nt lose weight. You know, even Gerre from Tankard lost weight recently and looks normal now. If we also lose Jon, who will we fat metalheads look up to? :-(

    Jon needs to lose weight so he doesn't lose his health which would render him incapable of touring. I was too young to see Savatage so I NEED TO SO JOP!

    Matt was one of those guitarists where I'd always forget how amazing he was until I had on a JOP record and was always impressed by his feel for every song. His leads are fantastic, and I feel fortunate I got to see him play on the global warning tour. Rest in peace.

    RIP Matt LaPorte. The closest thing we'll ever see to a second Criss Oliva, and an amazing guitarist in his own right.

    Maniacal Renderings and 'Festival and a great album too, both to be unmistakable style Savatage, Jon Oliva and' a genius of metal and deserves to be remembered along with other great styles, am enjoying the last two albums the band, long live the live Savatage Jon Oliva and (Criss Oliva) too.

    Festival is a wonderful album. As close to Savatage as we'll ever get again Living On The Edge IS a Savatage song.. sounds like one and was co-written by Chris Oliva

    September 2010
  • schmoove

    seems like this man can't do wrong. Liked the production on Global Warning more than Morrisound production. Too Iced Earth for my tastes. But the songs, creativity and magic are still second to none. Global Warning is still my fave though.

    Saw them live this saturday and they were really amazing! They simply blowed me away with an extremely solid performance and a cool tracklist. Especially Rainbow in the Dark and the first tracks were epic, but Hall of the Mountain King was the absolute winner. Really want to see them again!

    After two or three months of waiting I finally received my copy of Festival. It's a great album and the remake of Savatage's Living On The Edge Of Time took me by surprise. JOP calls it Living On The Edge and I believe Savatage only released it as a demo bonus track on Sirens (my version is the Silver Anniversary Edition).

    Festival could just be their best effort to date. Fantastic album, a grower for sure.
