This album really does have to be heard to be believed. You cant just think of it as another Savatage release or another metal release for that matter, but as a great piece of music. The riffs are awesome and complex as are most of the lyrics. The best songs on the alum are definetely Gutter Ballet, The Unholy, and Summer’s Rain which contains a simple, yet very awesome ending guitar riff. This album rules!! It’s got it all!! New to this band? This is a great starting place. This and Hall of the Moutain King are both a great start if your new.
