I don’t care if you’re a fan of the band or not. I am and will always be an Anvil fan for life, so just deal with it. If you’re a fan of the band, then add this one to your collection. If you hate them, then move along, there’s nothing to see here. If you’re new to the band, then give them a shot.
On this deluxe reissue you get outstanding live version of several of the tracks from Magica. Listening to this album again really hits home the tragic loss of such an incredible talent. No one will ever be able to fill his shows. For anyone that is a fan of not only Dio, but metal music period should add this deluxe edition to their collection. It’s a magnificent album and a crowning achievement in a legendary career.
With a career which started in 1981, with the Heavy Metal band Crossbones, and subsequent work with such musical giants like Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, MSG), Don Airey (Rainbow, Ozzy, Deep Purple) and several others, Dario Mollo has worked with some of the greatest names in rock. The Voodoo Hill albums with Glenn Hughes have always marked a special milestone in Dario career and the latest helps cement his reputation further.
