Festival songs Product Information
Festival album for sale by Jon Oliva's Pain was released Apr 13, 2010 on the AFM label. Jon Oliva's Pain have endured now for some seven years and four albums. Festival songs and that's just referring to the band bearing that name, never mind the man's personal life. And this is mentioned because it is the untimely death of Oliva's baby brother Criss, all the way back in 1993, that continues to both haunt and fuel his creativity, transforming what at first appeared to be just a project parallel to Savatage (as well as Oliva's most successful endeavor, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) into a de facto heir apparent -- not least stylistically speaking, given Oliva's ongoing efforts to finish any pieces of music left by his brother while composing lavish progressive heavy metal in his own vision, which is then suitably roughed up by his histrionic vocals and slightly warped lyrics. Festival CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs. ...See Full Description

||Savatage lives on|
Anyone who likes Savatage shouldn't be disappointed with Jon Oliva's solo project. There is nothing out there closer to what Savatage was to what Jon Oliva's Pain is.

Festival album for sale Think you've heard everything? If so, you need to hear this disk. Jon Oliva's mix of old reworked Savatage tracks with a little Zepplin & Beatles for good measure produces a plesant sound that takes you on a carnaval-like ride that you'll want to listen to again & again.
