The Wake of Magellan is the tenth studio album released by the American heavy metal band Savatage. The album was released in September 1997 in Europe and Japan, and in April 1998 in the US. It is a concept album and is based on two real life events. The first, the Maersk Dubai incident, occurred just over a year before this album was released when the captain and officers of the ship threw three Romanian stowaways overboard in the middle of the Atlantic.

The Wake Of Magellan is a very unique rock opera, in that it is composed around to songs that were not only written before the album’s concept was conceived of, but are about two topics that are only similar in the broadest sense. In the hands of most bands, this kind of incongruity could result in a mishmash of an album; a ham-fisted portrayal of something that required a delicate touch. Savatage, however, have never been stale, clichéd or mediocre. This album, like so many others, will hold the attention of both old fans and new listeners. It is a wonderful album, sticking within its genre, yet expanding outwards.
