No way does Dio qualify as power metal to me. That's traditional metal if it has ever been recorded in my eyes.
The Book of Heavy Metal is such a weird pick to me. I've never thought, that even at their best, Dream Evil was more than at best, a 2nd-tier band, and The Book of Heavy Metal is my 3rd favorite of their 5 albums.
