Reverence – Metalfacory.ch
Steve “Doc” Wachholz was the Savatage drummer from the demo days around 1983 until after the “Edge Of Thorns” album in 1993. So it’s only logical that on this EP, together with Scott Oliva, who is now singing to Reverence, the savatage plays “sleep”. The reason for this is a sad one. For after the death of Savatage guitarist Criss Olive in 1993, he now loses at least a second time a guitarist. Died this time is Pete Rossi, who has been keeping watch at Reverence since its founding in 2010. He is dedicated to this EP and in particular to the instrumental “Final Flight – RIP PJR”. In addition to the cover, in addition to the second instrumental “Foreverence”, three new pieces can be heard, which are reminiscent of the earlier, rougher Savatage, but certainly have enough autonomy. These whet the appetite for summer new studio album. In April, first a live album will be released, of which two songs are already on “Foreverence”. Despite the sad occasion, this EP is an extremely entertaining event. We hope that this will be the case with the upcoming releases.
