3 stars Easily one of the most underrated metal albums of all time, Savatage have never really been fully embraced by the mainstream, which is why this album has pretty much been lost in time, but there are actually some amazing Metal tunes to be found here.

This album is nowhere near as epic, progressive or complex as Savatage's later material, it is simply a great 80's Metal album with some classics that not many people even seem away of. 'Sirens', 'Holocaust', 'I Believe' and the mega-underrated 'Scream Murder' are all reasons why this album should be in the collection of any Metal fan.

Musically and sonically, everything about this record screams '80's'. The music is very typical of early 80's bands, and at times reminds me of Randy Rhodes-era Ozzy Osbourne, and the production is what you'd expect it to be. In fact, the two bonus tracks, which are demos, didn't even sound like demos, because the production all the way through sounds the same to me.

But don't be put off by that. Savatage explode onto the scene and introduce the world to the Oliva brothers in vicious style, and this is a great, fast-paced preview of what's to come.

Valarius | 3/5 |
