Doctor Butcher was a side project featuring
members Jon Oliva and Chris Caffery,
and the self-titled album was the perfect outlet for fans
who longed for the days of the heavier, early-period Savatage.
It was released with surprisingly little fanfare in 1995,
though a later re-release
by Crook'd Records gave it a bit of later life.
At one time this appeared to be an ongoing project, but the group
never recorded again.
