I saw it. Weird and interesting video.

One of the best KsE songs, but an absolute disgrace to God/Dio.

I understand that 90% of this board:

(1) reveres RJD as a deity, and
(2) despises KSE as mallcore excrement.

However, that's a damn good cover (apart from the handling of the "between the velvet lies" part), and a rather amusing video.

The pros: That dude's beard, the vocal performance
The cons: Unnecessary artficial harmonics, the video itself

Nah, he's too short to be a deity. But he is a decent singer.

I was wondering when you'd once again exercise your amazing ability to shit on someone.

I don't understand why any band would try to record their own version of Holy Diver. This is one of the few songs that needs absolutely nothing changed. You would think that they would have the common sense to recognize the fact that Dio's original could not be touched.

The song is not as crisp as Dio's, the vocals are an insult, and the pinch harmonics add more useless crap to an awesome song (like Zakk Wylde).

I'm a huge KSE fan, and even caught their last tour. However, this just sucks!

Fair enough. You're in the 10%.

I thought it was awesome, and I don't even like KSE.
