RONNIE JAMES DIO è una delle icone più importanti della storia del metal. Un artista che vanta un glorioso passato nelle fila di band storiche dell'hard rock come i Rainbow ed i Black Sabbath. Questa performance live del 2005 cattura Dio in grande forma e capace di rapire totalmente il pubblico accorso a questo spettacolare concerto londinese.

RONNIE JAMES DIO or Ronnie James Neo? As with many acts these days, DIO is an artist who, in recent years, has released a live album circa every new studio album. 'Killing The Dragon' was followed by 'Evil Or Divine', while last opus 'Master Of The Moon' preceeds his current release - 'Holy Diver - live'.

One more for the road then, but tellingly, this is not just another live release - nods to M & S commercials aside, this is a live collection that sees RJD perform the classic 'Holy Diver' album in its entirety - and some job at that. In spite of inevitable signs of strain and sometimes ludicrous improvisation, DIO remains an unbelievable live vocalist, flying the flag for old school heavy metal at full mast with both flair and gusto.

'Holy Diver', 'Don't Talk To Strangers' & 'Rainbow In The Dark' are probably the most popular classics from the album, while lesser known vintages such as 'Gypsy' & 'Caught In The Middle' truly justify the success of this project - and reason 26 to shop for Dio (shepherds pie just out of shot).

Concerning other fan favourites, its the same old song - heavyweight material from his RAINBOW and BLACK SABBATH days to keep even his most ardent fans happy, including a shortened version of the epic 'Sign Of The Southern Cross' and magnificent cuts of 'Stargazer' & 'Tarot Woman'.

Sadly, there's no material from 'Master Of The Moon' itself - disappointing given the album's quality, but given the only song to feature on the tour was 'The Eyes', you wouldn't have bet on any appearances. Finally, its interesting to note that DIO has recorded his latest live chapter with his former guitarist.

Format: DVD
Dio has, as Tenacious D point out, rocked for a long, long time but on the evidence of this live concert DVD, its going to be some time yet before he is ready to pass the torch.

This show, filmed at the London Astoria in October 2005 was built around the seminal 1983 album 'Holy Diver'. The prospect of seeing the whole of the album performed live drew in the punters wherever they played, and the Astoria was packed out to see Dio's current line-up take a step back in time. There was a late change to the squad however; regular guitarist Craig Goldy had withdrawn from the tour with a hand injury so former Dio six-stringer Doug Aldrich deputised at extremely short notice, having just completed a tour with Whitesnake.

Although the band were renowned at one time for their ever more elaborate stage sets, these days they stick to the basics, just five guys on stage, with lights, amps and a simple backdrop (of the 'Holy Diver' album cover art) - Denzil has long since been retired! The filming of the concert footage is similarly straightforward; plenty of camera angles offering many views of the band members rocking out, including one 'flying camera' over the crowd. Unlike the previous DVD: 'Evil or Divine', there is no grainy filter effect nor are there any sepia 'cut' shots - just straightforward live footage all the way.

With such a minimalist approach it falls to the guys on stage to deliver the goods, and alongside Ronnie James Dio is one of rock's real showmen in bassist Rudy Sarzo. He throws shapes many guitarists would balk at, while keeping perfect time and all with a huge grin on his face - he shows here why he has remained in demand among the premier league of hard rock.

Okay...just finished watching the dvd.......and its amazing...much better sound than the cd....I don't know why....Guitars are louder....and Mr Dio performance is just without faults....excellent....his ability to sing these songs is still there....all the reviews about his voice being past it...are a load of crap!

The Godfather of Metal....is still sitting on top of the mountain...and nothing will knock him down!Rudy shows us why he is one of the best bass guitar players out there....magnificent is all I can say...Simon....is the imposingly splendid thunder....his drums will shake your bones,outstanding solo from Simon,Scott's playing is really good....for a metal band....you can hear Scott playing and is not missing from this Dio symphony of classic songs....which is good.I will not spoil it too much for the fans.....get out there now and get your copy now!

There is great interviews from all the band......you got digital sound 5 and 1.....DTS....the whole lot!One thing I did notice from the inner notes....apart from the mistake about ''Goldy''featured spot....when it should have been Doug.....there is no pictures of Doug on the dvd package....or inside....oh well ....we are not perfect....anyway thats just minor details....I am not a fan of Doug's playing and I will ADMIT....he is brillant on the dvd...I am just don't know what happened with the cd.....also Doug played better in London....than what he did in Glasgow..But this dvd is about the outstandingly good and skilful Mr Dio.....this is an amazing singer....who just gets better and better...Mr Dio should be proud...this is an accomplishment of something very special for the fans.....and I thank him for sharing his talent with us....Long Live Rock and Roll.

Holy Diver is a classic cd....timeless...
