Dammit.....:( :( :(

Quote:
— Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager. He was 67.

Dio revealed last summer that he was suffering from stomach cancer shortly after wrapping up a tour in Atlantic City, N.J. with the latest incarnation of Black Sabbath, under the name Heaven And Hell.

"Today my heart is broken, Wendy Dio wrote on the singer's site, adding he died at 7:45 a.m. "Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes before he peacefully passed away.

"Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all, Wendy Dio continued. "We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us ... Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever."

The statement was confirmed by Los Angeles publicist Maureen O'Connor.

Dio rose to fame in 1975 as the first lead singer of Rainbow, the heavy metal band put together by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who had just quit Deep Purple.

Dio then replaced legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath in 1980 with the critically acclaimed album "Heaven And Hell, considered by many critics to be one of the finest heavy metal albums of all time. His on-again, off-again tenure with Black Sabbath touched off an intense debate among fans as to which singer was the true essence of the band — a discussion that lasted until his death.

He also enjoyed a successful solo career with his self-titled band, Dio, in between his three stints with Black Sabbath (1980-82; 1992; and 2007-2009, when the band toured as Heaven And Hell, to differentiate it from Osbourne-led versions of Sabbath).

Many of his most memorable songs revolved around the struggle between good and evil, including his signature tune "Heaven And Hell. He also drew heavily on medieval imagery in songs like "Neon Knights, "Killing The Dragon and "Stargazer.

"He possessed one of the greatest voices in all of heavy metal, and had a heart to match it, said Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French, whose band toured with Dio since 1983, and was to do so again this summer at European rock festivals. "He was the nicest, classiest person you would ever want to meet.

Dio organized an all-star charity collaboration in 1986 called "Hear N Aid to raise money for famine relief in Africa, styled on the successful "We Are The World campaign of a few years earlier.

His solo hits included "Rainbow In The Dark, "The Last In Line and "Holy Diver.

Sad day...very very sad day. Rock on Ronnie James Dio!! You gave us amazing music when in Rainbow, Dio, and Black Sabbath!
I actually felt like crying, because I've met Dio twice, and he was an amazing person. Damn..

First Dio dies, then Isis breaks up (not nearly the tragedy, but still sucks).

Horrible week for metal.

This is bloody awful. One of my favorite bands, over in an instant. I guess they're only human in the end, but the music they made was far beyond that. ='(

I'm thankful I discovered The Ocean a few weeks ago at least...

Celtallica

8 piece Celtic/Metal/Soul Band – this band has a different slant to ‘Ceilidh’ and packs a punch with their music – they take the traditional and break all boundaries. Average age 19/10 yrs old. They went to Sweden in May 2008 and took Amal by storm playing their KulturFest over a long weekend. They played the Wizard Festival August time 2008 and picked up many new fans. Check out their webspace www.Celtallica@weebly.com A new Album is in the pipeline for this band during 2009. If you book this band its not for the faint of heart – it would suit 18/21st birthdays especially if you want something different.

Sorry I'm not a member but Celtic and Metal can go together and sound nice?

If you like Warbringer, you're going to love Vindicator. I strongly suggest anyone who likes Thrash give this band a listen.

Looking for some new Melo-death? Check out Insomnium. They're pretty sick.

They are indeed. I think it was Andrew that recommended them to me a while back. They've been one of my favorite Melodeath bands ever since.

Back to Thrash for a bit... Everyone should check out Ulysses Siren. I owe Zach for discovering this one as well, since it was in the related videos for that Vindicator song. Don't know why I felt the urge to click on it, but I'm pretty glad I did.
