2010, Jon Oliva's Pain will release their fourth studio album FESTIVAL - a bombastic title for a bombastic record, indeed. After the more experimental last Jon Oliva's Pain album GLOBAL WARNING from 2008, the songs of the new album are going ´back to the basics` again. Less slow tracks, more Metal! Like the master announced it some time ago, FESTIVAL could be described as a mix of HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING (Savatage) and the second Jon Oliva's Pain album MANIACAL RENDERINGS. Epic compositions encounter with rough, heavy rockers, all melt together by Jon´s unique style of composing. This album marks the next step in the continuing legacy of the ´Mountain King`. It's once again a unique and unmatched piece of work by one of the scene's last originals.
