Classic Clip of the Week!
1993 - Savatage - 'Edge of Thorns'! The first album to feature the monster vocals of Zak Stevens and unfortunately the last to feature the hugely under rated guitar talents of Criss Oliva. Such a great song, and a great album. Savatage themselves have a rabid following yet I feel are still very under rated in the metal world. If you like this song, check out the rest of the bands amazing back catalogue before and after 'Edge of Thorns'!
