Vocalist Jon Oliva (SAVATAGE) recently discussed the band's forthcoming album with MetalBlast.net. An excerpt is available below:
Oliva: "I’ve got some weird ideas that I wanna try and I’ve got some time to do it. I don’t wanna do just 'another' JOP record, I’ve done four of those already. I wanna do something different. I have some material that I’ve wanted to put out for a while, that I’ll talk with the record company about, maybe putting something out quickly, like in the next four or five months, to give me more time to do this JOP record, because I want that to be special, and I’ve got some friends from other bands that are going to come and play. We’re going to do a regular JOP record and then a bonus disc with guest stars, kind of like the AVANTASIA thing but not a whole story. Tobias Sammet does a magnificent job with it, but I don’t have that much fucking time to write a whole story, so I’ll just have some friends from various bands come in."
