Maybe it's just me because I'm used to smaller venue bands.

I am too, if by "smaller venue" you mean places that hold like 700-1200 people. I don't see a lot of shows in dive bars where bands are selling t-shirts for $15 - I see a lot of smaller-scale bands and $20-25 is basically what I expect for a shirt from most bands I see, and I don't really see a problem with that. But yeah, the big scale artists that charge $35 (or even more) for t-shirt can go fuck themselves.

Did they not play Slave To The Dark or did you forget to put it in?
They didn't play Burning Times at a lot of the shows on this tour actually. They started doing it as an encore late in the tour and the only other show they played it at was because their time was cut so they didn't play Dante's Inferno and instead played Burning Times, My Own Savior and something else.

Well, I guess I'm just a cheap asshole.

I wasn't referring to the tour with Symphony X. I was talking about the handful of headline shows they did after they were done touring with them. Every show got Burning Times except ours.

That's why I said "we were the only show on this short headline run" in my post

dimmudan - Thank you so much for the kind words!
Glad you were actually able to catch us!
They did not let the general ticket holders in until the VIP thing was done.

Here is a video of us doing STRANGE WINGS:

It's good to see you have a video up on YouTube. The video is cool but I don't believe that it does the band's overall sound (which is very good) justice.

Still the video at least gives people a feel for the band's sound in general. The falsetto vocals from your 2nd vocalist who does a lot of the Zak Stevens vocals cannot be fully appreciated on this video as he can really hit some impressive notes. I enjoyed when someone asked him to do King Diamond's falsetto at the Sanctuary show and I was impressed that he was actually able to hit King's notes quite well.

Your primary vocalist, John, who does John Oliva's voice resembles Oliva's sound well and you can appreciate his vocal similarity a little better on the video recording. The band's musicians replicate the Savatage sound pretty much note for note and that also is captured reasonably well on the video.

I would recommend that if you like Savatage and live in the Midwest you should go see Ghost in the Ruins live as I have really enjoyed them both times I have seen them now.
