Captured live in front of a sold-out London crowd, Ronnie James Dio delivers a truly memorable performance on this truly memorable night. Dio has been hailed as one of the finest voices in Heavy Metal for over 30 years now, and for good reason. Due to his stints in Rainbow, Black Sabbath and as a solo artist, Dio is one of the few people in the history of music that can honestly say they have played on three classic albums, each under a different moniker.

Sound: This DVD is from the 2006 "Holy Diver" concert in London by Dio. Dio is a heavy metal band much like "Ozzy Osbourne" in sound but with "Ronnie James Dio" as the singer. Dio is an amazing singer with an extremely strong and huge vocal range. Dio is best known for his work as singer for Ritchie Blackmores "Rainbow" and replacing Ozzy Osbourne in "Black Sabbath." The concert was put on for the fans, not for the members of the band, this is what makes it so great to watch. Songs from Ronnie James Dio's other bands such as Black Sabbath and Rainbow. This adds to making this concert more interesting. The band as a whole has a monsterous sound. Extremely headbanging heavy rock. // 9
Overall Impression: This DVD is great, I love the way that they just don't play songs from "Dio", instead they include a whole bunch of songs from Ronnie James Dio's illustrious career. The sound of this DVD is monsterous and really makes you feel involved in the concert which is a great thing. Favorite song from the DVD would be "Holy Diver" or "Heaven And Hell". I would definatly buy this DVD again as it has great atmosphere and monsterous skill and sound, which is what Dio is famous for! // 9
