Yeah, they kind of teased me this year.. Their website eluded that they were going to do something special for the 25th year anniversary, which I was really hoping on a new studio album.. but they are not, the band is already into their seasonal thing with TSO.. so, nope nothing for us, but TSO has a new album "Night Castle"

And i don't think a new Savatage will come soon either.  TSO is planning a European tour in Spring.  Meanwhile Jon Oliva is busy with JOP.

would you prefer Oliva or Zachary Stevens as the singer?  or both?

By the way, I think Oliva is a much better singer than Stevens.

I used to prefer Zak over Jon until I saw JOP live and Jon belted out several classic Savatage numbers including some "Zak" songs - truly an amazing voice. However I would dearly love to see Circle II Circle live.
