"Edge Of Thorns" is Savatage's 8th studio album. It is their first work with Zak Stevens on vocals and their last with Criss Oliva on guitar: Criss died in a car accident on October 7th, 1993 after this release. His tragic death marked a terrible period for his bandmates, expecially for his brother Jon, who decided to bring Savatage to an end. Fortunately he changed his mind after the release of "Handful Of Rain", which was meant to be Savatage's post script.

Rating: 9 I started listening Savatage before few months.Awesome,fantastic band can't believe I wasted my time on Dream Theater and Queensryche.
This album is one of my favorites along with power of the night and of course hall of the mountain king.This album is pure melodic yet aggressive
with very good songwritning.Vocals?Ha ha fantastic singer Zak Stevens.Highly recommended!

Rating: 8 Good, but not great. Few "Skidrow-ish" songs I don't really appreciate. Zak's vocals are excellent, but I still prefer Jon's.

Rating: 10 Savatage's best album imo, all tracks are perfect. I personally prefer Zak's voice over Jon's. Jon's amazing too, but Zak's better.
