    2004 'Tage Mahal
    2006 Maniacal Renderings
    2008 Global Warning
    2010 Festival


    ...is the latest project of former Savatage co-founder and frontman Jon Oliva

    The band released their first album 'Tage Mahal in 2004.

    The music and themes bear comparison with the likes of Alice Cooper, focusing as they do on elements of obsession, pain, confusion and insanity. Oliva himself cites The Beatles, Queen and The Who amongst his and hence the band's influences

    JOP subsequently signed to AFM Records for the release of the follow-up entitled Maniacal Renderings

    In January 2008, a release date in April via AFM was confirmed for the new album, entitled Global Warning

    The band announced that it had commenced pre-production on its fourth release, with a due date of 2009. The band expected to tour the United States and Europe once more in 2009, with a live DVD to be released in 2010

    JOP will release their new CD "FESTIVAL" worldwide on February 19th 2010 via AFM Records.

    Great musician. I like Savatage and I like Jon Oliva's Pain too. I also have Global Warning and Maniacal Renderings on cd. I saw Savatage in concert back in 2002. Although Jon Oliva was behind the keyboards practically he was the frontman.
