Circle to Circle - Watching in Silence (AFM) 2003
Of Reach" (4:09)
Well it's always a bummer when one of your favorite singers from one of your favorite bands leaves. However, in the case of Zachary Stevens leaving Savatage I must confess I am happy with the outcome. Circle II Circle rules! 'Watching In Silence' is the progressive, melodic heavy metal album Savatage should have recorded a long time ago. Honestly, this album sounds more like Savatage at times than many of the modern Savatage albums. Some of this has to do with the trademark vocals, but it also has to do with the fact that all of the songs are co-written by Savatage veterens Criss Oliva or Chris Caffery, or both. I can't imagine any Savatage fan not liking this disc.
