Savatage-The Dungeons are Calling [1984]

My best friend back then was a serious metalhead and there were a few songs that stayed with me. Brothers Jon and Criss Oliva and Keith Collins were the founding members of Savatage in 1983. They started out being a cross between heavy metal and speed metal and ultimately becoming one of the first progressive metal bands using symphonic instrumentals as their trademark from then on. This is an excellent song.

Wow..straight outta left field. Welcome back, Sir Droopy (at least for me).

I've been a Savatage fan since the Hall of the Mountain King days. They were part of my first concert (Savatage/Megadeth/Dio) and I went to a later concert with the second singer Zachary.

When I retro-collected, I picked up this gem of an album. The song is a great indication of the fame to come. The axe-work of Chris Oliva (R.I.P.) was ahead of its time and very unique to the band's sound. I truly wish Chris was still around as the merry-go-round of guitarists since his death has been mediocre at best (although I was very impressed with Alex Skolnick's part on the Handful of Rain album.

Thanks for the memory.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
