JON OLIVA'S PAIN, the band led by SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva, has posted five new song clips from its upcoming CD, "Global Warning", on the group's MySpace page."Global Warning" (cover artwork) will be released in Europe on March 21 via AFM Records. A U.S./Canada release will follow on April 30 through Locomotive Records. JON OLIVA'S PAIN drummer Christopher Kinder stated about the CD, "Some of these songs had over 100 tracks of recorded instruments, vocals, bells and whistles. So putting every sound in its proper place [during the mixing process] was a massive undertaking. Nothing could be sacrificed, and anyone who has mastered a CD before will tell you that it can all be ruined at this final stage of the game. JON OLIVA'S PAIN and the Morris brothers [owners of Morrisound Recording in Tampa] would have none of that." He continued, "We feel that we have prevailed in blazing fashion. I am currently listening to the final CD mix while typing this update and I could not be happier with the production, and the performance of everyone in JON OLIVA'S PAIN. This is absolutely some of the best songs Oliva has ever written and the best record JON OLIVA'S PAIN has recorded, in my opinion. It's heavy, epic, and emotional and will hopefully satisfy your musical senses as it has for us." "Global Warning" features a guest appearance by guitarist Ralph Santolla (OBITUARY, ex-DEICIDE, DEATH, ICED EARTH) on two songs: "Adding the Cost" and "You'll Never Know". JON OLIVA'S PAIN will begin its first tour to support the new CD with a recently added show at The Headbanger's Ballroom in Hamburg, Germany on April 23. MANTICORA and MASTERSTROKE will join JON OLIVA'S PAIN for most of the upcoming European dates. Festival dates and the ultra-eclectic acoustic shows are now being booked for the summer as well. Interested festivals and venues can contact Dragon Productions at [email protected] A U.S with CIRCLE II CIRCLE and MANTICORA will kick off late September.
