Not really. It's rare that a band could go from cult status at best to being popular by basing their concept album on a popular movie. Unless the band's album is being advertised on the same scale as the book/movie and to the same audience it's not really gonna have an effect. This album has hardly spred the popularity of CIIC... and I really don't think that's what they were after. Savatage or any of the bands within the Savatage "family" have never seemed to be after money, because if they were, they've been doing a HORRIBLE job at it. Believe it or not, it is possible to want to do a concept album based on someone else's book or movie without it being an attempt to gain popularity.
