they are already playing a show with an Accept tribute act in May. I am sure Jason will post more info. It is going to be full sets I think for both bands.

more info on this show here
Balls To The Wall and Ghost in the Ruins - May 4th


From what I heard it was a mess of a show. Talk about unorganized. It sucks that the other band pulled that crap about not opening.

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, our image definitely needs some work and it is something we are talking about as a band.

Well, that stage isn't really THAT small. We were surrounded by all of ICED EARTH's gear, of which you had to stay a certain number of feet away from, as indicated by tape on the floor.

As Bob (Diabolik) said to me, we looked like THERION up there with all the members!

@ Bob - Thanks for posting the info for our upcoming show.
And yes, it is a double bill with BALLS TO THE WALL (Accept tribute) and us closing.
Both bands will get 90+ minute sets.

Ah, of course. I wasn't thinking about the headliner band's gear onstage, that would certainly do it.

The gig with the Accept tribute sounds killer, 90+ sets? Awesome, that's how you get 'er done. Hopefully there's some footage of that.

Oh there will be!!!
Our keyboardist has an HD camera which is killer.

The set will span from old to new, hits and deep cuts, and an Al Rybka free-style rap.

Great stuff, Jason!!!! I wish we had a Savatage tribute band somewhere around here - it takes a lot of balls to do that in the US, where there aren't many fans that would come out to see that (I; however, am NOT one of those!!).

There was a local band at the Savatage convention in 1999 that covered "Strange Wings" and totally re-arranged it to be a power ballad. Jon Oliva and Caffery were there and seemed to really like it.

Let us know if you ever get down Houston way!!!!

Thanks again to everyone for the feedback.
Our vocalist has his finger on the pulse of EVERYTHING Savatage related.
As far as we know, we are the only currently active US Tribute.
There are others in Greece, Brazil, and Egypt I believe.

For the locals, here is info on our next show:

You guys did a fantastic job. I know the issues with the entry was a bunch of bull. I mean, there were still people waiting in line outside when your set was done. But a brilliant performance and a very appropriate start off band. You really got the crowd, all 15 of them lol, really into it and you have not ceased to amaze me. Keep up the good work and I plan on seeing you guys at the shark city gig.

Keep your horns up!!! \m/

I am sure we have before, with all the shows that we both go to. I did take a picture with you guys that night, if you remember, right after you got off state outside of Mojoes. You guys held me up in the first picture. lol. I plan on being at the show on the 4th. We can reintroduce ourselves. lol

You guys were awesome, would have been nice to hear more songs of course. I can never get enough Savatage. The whole experience was disorganized at mojoes. I was one of the VIPs and I didnt get why things were running late and all the set backs. My friend was outside waiting and just made it in when you hit the stage, he was half way in. But anyway, killer job!

Just to give you a taste of what to expect according to Jason:

My name is Albie,
I love 'dem ho's.
I sniff 'dem out
Wid' my giant nose!

That shit's hardcore!

Anywho, thanks for the kind words, everyone. The show on May 4th is going to be pretty sweet. Anyone with five bucks to blow in the Chicago area should come on out and hang with us!


Stay metal (though I didn't in this post!). Never rust.

It would be VERY cool to see GITR play a pre-party event at ProgPower one year! Glenn would actually let you play and utilize what was available!

Shirts????
Yes! We have them!

They are one sided and contain our logo in blue outlined in white.
Underneath, I think it says "Chicago's Savatage Tribute" They are black shirts.

We got a decent deal on them, so we are only charging $10 for em.

I am very humbled you would want one!!!!
