Details

[Edit]

Many of the songs that comprise Night Castle were started in the 20th century by Savatage, the progressive metal band whose members helped found Trans- Siberian Orchestra. Some of the best recordings here happen to be reworkings of older Savatage material. The triumphant instrumental rocker “The Mountain” was first released as “Prelude to Madness” on 1987’s Hall Of The Mountain King which actually riffs hard on “Mars, The Bringer Of Planets” from Gustav Holst's seven-movement orchestral suite The Planets, written in 1916. And sections of “The Lion’s Roar” were appropriated from “Temptation Revelation,” off Savatage’s 1998 album Gutter Ballet, while other parts were taken from “The Minstrel Boy” a traditional Irish folk song. Night Castle may not muse on Christmas, but it still sounds like the kind of crazy epic rock operas that TSO’s fans know and love. Anyone remotely familiar with their penchant for grandiose performances that walk the line between magnificent and ridiculous is sure to feel right at home here.
