The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2 CD In Stores October 9th 2012
addition to fronting such legendary hard rock/heavy metal bands as
Rainbow, Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell, and Elf, singer Ronnie James
Dio also was the leader of his own solo band, Dio, who were responsible
for such all-time great rock anthems as "Holy Diver," "Rainbow in the
Dark," and "The Last in Line," among many others. And on Tuesday,
October 9th, a second volume of Dio's best tracks will be unleashed via
Niji Entertainment Group - 'The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 2' - a follow-up to the
gold-certified 'The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 1'
The 17-track CD
picks up exactly where the first volume left off - from 1996 onward.
And in addition to featuring such latter-day Dio classics as "Killing
the Dragon," "Push," and "Fever Dreams," the compilation will also
include several rarities that fans have long requested on a single disc -
"Electra" (which previously was only a part of the ultra-rare
'Tournado' box set), "Prisoner of Paradise," and "Metal Will Never
Die." The stellar music of Ronnie James Dio
continues to live on. And the forthcoming 'The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 2"
will be the perfect addition to every headbanger's collection.
Mixed, and remastered by Ronnie's longtime engineer,Wyn Davis.
Also, included as part of the release will be liner notes penned by
long-time supporter and friend of Ronnie's, Eddie Trunk from 'That Metal
Show,' as well as an awesome front cover painting by artist Marc Sasso
(who previously created the covers for Dio's 'Killing the Dragon' and
'Master of the Moon' albums). 'The Very Beast of Dio Vol. 1', the first
'Beast of Dio' was only released in the USA and Canada, and has sold
over 800,000 CD's to date.
