4 stars I can not understand why listening to Savatage I can think of a band that is not simply a Heavy Metal band. Contrary to what I hear I can not accurately categorize the music they propose. Classify it simply as Classic Metal would be the minimum. Yet... Yet it has a bit more. A much-does not lead me to call it Power Metal or Epic Metal. But even Prog Metal. In a certain sense the music of Savatage is ascribed to Proto Prog Metal (like Queensryche, Atomic Rooster, Uriah Heep, Magnum, Deep Purple or Led Zeppelin, for example).

In this respect the music that we propose Savatage in "Hall Of The Mountain King" is a sort of mix between Hard Rock, Power Metal and bombastic arrangements. The melody is predominant in a context where the guitars so much pumping, pulsating rhythm section and Jon Oliva seems a lot of new Robert Plant / Ian Gillan! The vision that "Hall Of The Mountain King" offers us is typical of much of the 80's Metal: Power, melody, excellent technique. Yet there is not an explosive album. Fatigue, in fact, to open minds: start hard with a metal evergreen as "24 Hrs. Ago" and continues on the same coordinates. Thus it becomes difficult to describe the album song by song.

These are my reflections ended by finding that "Hall Of The Mountan King" is an evergreen of Metal. And as such must be judged.
