This is amazing news as I think Dio brings out the best in Sabbath, and vice versa. Most of the Ozzy material sounds like Bon Jovi compared to the Dio discs! Dehumanizer is one of the greatest metal discs of all time.

RONNIE JAMES DIO To Collaborate With TONY IOMMI (http://eddietrunk.com/news/article.php?news_id=1966)
Posted By Joe Bilbo G on 10.23.05

Legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio has revealed during an interview with BBC Radio 2's "Masters of Rock" program that he will once again be collaborating with BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi.

"At this particular point if all doesn't fall through, and I doubt that it will Tony Iommi and I are going to write a couple of tracks together for a project that I think is called 'Black Sabbath The Dio Years'," Dio said. "So that'll be two unreleased tracks which I'm sure will be interesting to old SABBATH fans, and maybe [even] the new SABBATH fans."

Dio recorded a total of three studio albums with BLACK SABBATH 1980's "Heaven and Hell", 1981's "Mob Rules" and 1992's "Dehumanizer" in addition to appearing on the classic live album "Live Evil" in 1983.

I love Dio and Dio-era Sabbath, too. Not that it comes up much, but still.



The torch has been passed!!

Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules are the best two albums Dio ever recorded on.

Except I'd throw Dehumanizer on the top of that list...
