is the second album by band Dio, released on July 13. It is the first Dio album to feature former Rough Cutt keyboardist Claude Schnell.
After an excellent debut, Dio roared back with this slab of Heavy Metal goodness. There are a lot of similarities to Holy Diver on Last In Line but there are some subtle differences too. The end result is almost equally as impressive though, and Last In Line stands as one of the highlights of Dio’s career. this is an album of classic metal greatness.
