Hardcore Superstar, a sleazy rock band from Sweden. I first heard of these guys from their 2010 release Split Your Lip.

The problem is that you are correct.

I'll second the Circle to Circle suggestion.  Although, they did change their sound a lot as they went on.  The first two albums are basically lost Savatage albums.  The links posted above were more newer stuff, which to my ears isn't as solid as the first two albums

Circle II Circle - Sea of White - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4Uo8wxnZvs

Sticking with the Zach Stevens theme, he did another side project called Machines of Grace.  basically his pre-Savatage band (white witch?) rebranded with some new songs.  Good album IMO, worth checking out

I'm a big Jon Oliva guy these days. But appreciate and like some of Zach's work with Savatage, these two you posted kick ass like both of those a lot, sounds great. Sounds better than the small sampling of Circle to Circle that I previously had heard.

YESSSS. Watching in Silence and The Middle of Nowhere are very good discs. Agreed

Man the intro on that second song from Coldspell, both the guitar intro and drum kick in sounds an awful lot like "Lay It Down" from Ratt  8) just an observation.

I liked both those Striker songs, pretty good stuff.

Teramaze was pretty good I liked the second song better than the first one.

Definitely dig both of those War Machine songs, Like the vocals and guitar.

I wasn't familiar with any of these four bands.

Hah I never noticed that before about the Coldspell tune, but you're right it does sound a lot like the "Lay it down" intro which incidentally I love. :)

Speaking of Doug Pinnick and Mr Lynch, has any one checked out their side project with Ray Luzier (Korn) called KXM?  You should.  Some of George's best recent work IMO.  Was never a fan of Korn (just not my thing) but Ray kills it on drums in this project.  Really great stuff

Rescue Me - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD40-CJljas
Faith is a Room - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syySR57Koi0
Stars (this is isolated on just Ray, but you can hear the song clearly enough) - https://youtu.be/wZVVNcPgHpc?t=217
Calypso (Really dig what Ray is doing on drums here) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1xwnhEP5kM
Scatterbrain ( I really dig Lynch's work on this one) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvTnzne69Ts
Burn (love the build up and riff on this one.  Great solo too) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fkkng82c74

cheers

Love that, that song is awesome  8) I was never a big Kings X fan but love that song and Dug's part in it. Really cool.
