Middle section and build-up = :drool:

Maiden33

For how short this song is, it certainly has a ton of dynamics to it. Most songs under 5 minutes don't have quiet intros and middle sections. This song got right to the point.

:rocker:

I used to hate that middle part, but the rest of the song was so good, I just convinced myself "it's only 10 seconds long dude, man up!"
I still maintain that Tony Martin singing this in 1989 was the best version of the song ever!

A nice little rocker from Dio's final solo album:D

Best song on it, IMO.

I actually heard this song right when the album came out, but wasn't a big enough of a fan yet to automatically buy it. The song ate at me for like a year until I broke down and needed to buy that album. :D

06-15-2010, 07:26 PM
Alright, final song of the second main set now (there will be encores). I think EVERYONE knows this one...

I think the title track is the best one off it. It's a song that would've fit perfectly on Dream Evil if it was written then, that is.

A rare occurrence: A hit that doesn't suck. :D

:rocker: :rocker:

My band did this song live a couple of times, always got a great reaction.

so, this begs the question: what is a holy diver? or is a holy diver accurately pictured on the album?

Great tune but I think Ronnie may have been:stoned:while writting the lyrics:lol:

As much as I love it I could never figure out what the hell he was talking about here:D

Alright - that's the second main set. Gimme a minute, and we'll have a first encore.

Maiden33
06-15-2010, 07:34 PM
Alright, time for a song I probably never would've chosen to spontaneously add to a Dio virtual show if it were just a normal one. But given the occurrence, this is a MUST have. I have seen this song used in countless video montages since RJD's passing, and I think it stands as possibly his most fitting tribute song. Definitely seems like a case of someone having been able to write their own epitaph...

Encore 1:

i had some concern since my last virtual set with Maiden33 (Symphony X) was just the two of us. and then there was the Mercyful Fate/King Diamond set that was just me and DethMaiden (i think). the next one, for Primal Fear, i forget the originator, ended up calling it quits a few songs into Primal Fear since there was no one. well i was ready to chill, but apparently i had a rep at the time.

that threadkillah line just seems to happen with a lot of other threads

Maiden33
06-15-2010, 07:38 PM
Alright, time for another somewhat atypical choice for an encore. I absolutely love the way it was done on the Heaven and Hell DVD, and it's another one that's hit me very hard over the past several weeks.

Alright, can't believe it's taken me until now to hit this album just once. A VERY typical tune for this spot in a Dio set...

while it might be poetic to see Dio as the last in some heavenly/hellish line, i doubt it

Maiden33
06-15-2010, 07:49 PM
And that is the first encore. :D

I will hesitate for a minute or two and then start up the second encore.


Maybe. It depends on how loud everyone gets. :D

Alright, it's time for the final song. I'd like to thank everyone for sticking with me through this (seriously) THREE hour journey. These things always take longer than I expect them to.

It's time to wrap up it up with a very fitting closer, for all the Dio shows it closed...

One of the best closing songs ever. Dio knew it was the perfect ender and that's why he closed with 98% of the time.
