Bands
Avatar (US)

Criss Oliva and his brother Jon formed their first band together, Avatar, in 1978, from the ashes of their former bands Tower and Alien respectively. In 1980, the duo met up with Steve Wacholz and jammed in a shack behind the Oliva home that was dubbed "The Pit" by the band. Wacholz originally tried out to be part of Jon's band, Alien, but when the first Savatage line-up was taking shape, Jon, who was originally on drum duties, was relieved of them by Wacholz. They also gave Steve a nickname that would follow him throughout his career: "Doctor Hardware Killdrums", often shortened to just "Doc" or "Doc Killdrums", which referred to Steve's hard playing style.

Bands
Catafalc

It was the year 1999, when the Estonian metal scene was shaken by death-like guitar riffs, fast drums and sepulchral growling not proper for the time.. The decay of a former band and serial festival "Põrguwärk" (R.I.P.), where three future Catafalc members Eero, Ando and Eero met, are to blame. Behind the beer time of the first rehearsal was agreed. The beginning wasn't very smooth as we didn't exactly know what we wanted to do. But then we got it clear. Death Metal! Something new or in other words something old, long forgotten, had to be brought to the scene, as change to the devastating wave of Black Metal.
