Shot at Potawatomi zoo in South Bend, Indiana USA in September of 2007. Shot with Canon rebel EOS 3000 v camera and used 100 speed fujiflm.

Far away
In a land caught between
Time and space
Where the books of life lay
We fear
This castle of stone
The mountain king roams
All alone in here
But he’s not the only one
Lost inside
Forever hidden from the sun

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah

His deep
Dark eyes
Keep watch on his kingdom
And the mysteries that sleeps safe inside
His hall
His towers of stone
Shall not be overthrown
For eternity
It is guarded by the king
Insanity and the power that it brings

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Come with me
Stay close by my side
As the darkness of night closes in
Don’t fear
In the thunder, it roars
When the Mountain King calls all his children home
To where I hid him we must run
Refuge here but I was forever on the run

Madness reigns
(my friends)
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah
In the Hall of the Mountain King
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I love to capture photos of everything. My favorite things to take photos of are nature, fall, and big cats. I hope one day big cats can be free to roam again. They deserve to be free like us.

    Great shot! Love the treatment. Dude, I’ll loved this album and especially this track….. now whta ever happened to savatage?!!!

  • Brother Matt, how are you? Thanks for comments I appreciate it. Savatage broke up in 2002. Everybody off doing their own thing. I saw them twice. The first time I saw them was on the Hall of the mountain king tour. They opened for Megadeth and Dio. I tell you what Matt. I have been to a lot of concerts in my life and that one is in my top ten. Megedeth just released so good, so far, so what and my man Ronnie James Dio released dream evil. the other time I saw them was in 2001 (the last tour). They played with Fates Warning (another great band).They were great then too. See ya Matt
