JON OLIVA of SAVATAGE and JON OLIVA’S PAIN fame is gearing up for the release of his very first official solo album. The record will be released via AFM Records on June 5th.
Jon Oliva’s Pain drummer/producer Christopher Kinder recently checked in with the following update:
“The first (and probably last, ha-ha) Jon Oliva solo record is now complete. Oliva will be the first to admit that it took one hell of a challenge writing, performing 90% of all the tracks himself and vocals… he is exhausted for sure. It’s a very interesting and powerful offering. Diverse, emotional, and varying styles of writing and music everywhere. A truly great accomplishment for the mountain king indeed.
Special thanks to Tom Morris and everyone at Morrisound once again for a job well done.”
As previously reported, Oliva has assembled a collection of ideas from the past four-five years and recorded nearly all the instrument tracks and vocals himself and also playing drums on several tracks.
