On October 9th, a second volume of DIO's best tracks was unleashed via Niji Entertainment - The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2 - a follow-up to the gold-certified The Very Beast Of Dio. The album has debuted at #192 Billboard Top 200 Current Albums, #19 on the Hard Music Charts, #13 on the Hard Music Core Stores Charts, #51 on the Indie Charts, and #75 on the Indie Store Charts.
The collection is streaming in its entirety at this location. The 17-track CD picks up exactly where the first volume left off - from 1996 onward. And in addition to featuring such latter-day Dio classics as 'Killing The Dragon', 'Push', and 'Fever Dreams', the compilation will also include several rarities that fans have long requested on a single disc - 'Electra' (which previously was only a part of the ultra-rare Tournado box set), 'Prisoner Of Paradise', and 'Metal Will Never Die'. Also included as part of the release is liner notes penned by long-time supporter and friend of Ronnie's, Eddie Trunk from That Metal Show, as well as an awesome front cover painting by artist Marc Sasso (who previously created the covers for Dio's Killing The Dragon and Master Of The Moon albums). The tracklist is as follows: 'Killing the Dragon' 'Push' 'The Eyes' 'Along Comes A Spider' 'Better in the Dark' 'Fever Dreams' 'Black' 'Feed My Head' 'Shivers' 'Hunter Of The Heart' (live) 'One More For The Road' 'Lord Of The Last Day' 'Electra' (bonus track) 'As Long As It's Not About Love' 'This Is Your Life' 'Metal Will Never Die' (bonus Track) 'Prisoner Of Paradise' (bonus Track) Supporting the release of The Very Beast Of Dio Volume 2, DIO DISCIPLES - featuring RONNIE JAMES DIO (BLACK SABBATH, DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, RAINBOW, ELF) alumni Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar), Scott Warren (keyboards) and Rudy Sarzo (bass) along with vocalists Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) and Toby Jepson (LITTLE ANGELS, GUN) – will tour the US from October 20th - November 20th.
