After breaking up with Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio employed the services of a fine young heavy metal guitarist named
Vivian Campbell for his new band.  
He also brought along hard-hitting drummer Vinny Appice from Black Sabbath.  
The music they recorded together (along with bassist Jimmy Bain) resulted in the Holy Diver LP,
a record now referred to as a “classic” by many a metal aficionado.


The style of music on Holy Diver is a very clean, very lean form of heavy metal with the recording’s great instrument fidelity,
the understated single guitar approach, Appice’s precise drumming (with great, authoritative, fills), and Dio’s crisp, commanding vocals.  
In many ways, Holy Diver is the quintessential “traditional” metal album.  
None of the many metal sub-genres really apply here.  
Holy Diver is one of those albums at the very sun-center of the heavy metal galaxy (of which all sub-genres orbit).  
And though accessible, it is not commercial.  
Any album with Stand Up And Shout, Holy Diver, and Rainbow In The Dark is absolutely essential.  
Arguably Dio’s finest hour.
