5 stars "Ghost In the Ruins" is the tribute to guitarist Chris Oliva, who has died in an tragic car crash. An drunken driver was fault, who was the ghost-driver, crashed into Chris' car on british tour back in 1993.

Any single Sava-fan must own "Ghost In The Ruins", it's been recorded on the "Hall Of The Mountain King" & "Gutter Ballet" tour, put well together on one remarkable live album. All versions are brilliant and passionate played, symphonic metal classic meets power metal classic, one on another one, 'til the album ends with Chris' little acoustic guitar instrumental "post script". This is one to keep: An classic metal live release, which presents finally one of the best & most original guitar players in rock & metal history. Thanks for inspiration: Christopher Michael Oliva (R.I.P.) ....................................................................................................
