The Dungeons Are Calling is an EP by the American heavy metal band Savatage, released in 1984 on Combat Records. Though the EP was not released until 1984, most of the songs featured on the it and the debut album Sirens had been in the band set list since 1979, and are part of the Live in Clearwater and City Beneath the Surface EPs. The Dungeons Are Calling is a loosely based concept album and the title track, contrary to popular belief, is not about Hell or torture, but about the horrors of drug use. The song used many metaphors, which have been sometimes misunderstood.
The tracks on this EP were recorded the same day as the tracks for the Sirens album. The two were meant to be a full length debut but were divided due to limited space for songs on vinyl. The two were released together in 2011 for the first time "as they were meant to be"(Jon Oliva)
