    With the release of THE STRANGE CASE OF…, I fell in love with Lzzy Hale. So much so, in fact, that I jokingly got down on one knee and asked her to marry me at Rock On The Range two years ago (a proposal that she didn’t flat out turn down, so maybe there’s still hope!!). Let’s be

    Let’s just call it the way it is. It’s been a very, very long time since Marilyn Manson recorded a really good, memorable release that any of us still listen to on a regular basis. To many, the would probably says that it’s been since MECHANICAL ANIMALS back in 1998. For me personally, I’ll be a bit more

Image: Jon Oliva's Pain, Pitriff, news, reviews, interviewsJON OLIVA'S PAIN featuring mainman Jon Oliva (ex-SAVATAGE), have announced that Orlando's very own SEVEN KINGDOMS have been added to the line-up for their June 16th show at the Ritz in Ybor City (Tampa) as they kick off the 25th anniversary tour of The Hall Of The Mountain King.

Oliva recently issued the following update as the band gears up for their European tour and warm-up show in Tampa, FL:

"With the passing of our dear friend and guitarist Matt LaPorte just a year ago, it is time to get the machine back up and running. I miss performing live, and the timing of the 25th anniversary of Hall Of The Mountain King makes this the perfect opportunity. We will perform what I consider one of the best and most important records of Savatage's career, and this is of course another chance I get to honor my brother Criss, one of the greatest guitar players ever. I am still going through old tapes and recordings, and can't believe what a talent he was and how he continues to inspire me. I hope you can attend this special show, we will be leaving it all on stage every night with you, the legions, by our sides. See you soon and much love to all!"

Drummer/producer Christopher Kinder adds: "This is a celebration of the life and music that we feel is worthy of this tour. Hall Of The Mountain King is a staple to many heavy metal fans around the globe, and it certainly deserves a party. The band has been in rehearsal mode for quite some time now, and really sounds fantastic. A few more weeks and we will all be on auto-pilot. It's going to be epic! This opportunity — and there will only be these 15 shows — comes along once in a lifetime, and we have prepared a very special night for all who attend."
