So it wasn't all that surprising - impressive, but not surprising - when he struck gold yet again when launching his solo vehicle, Dio, via 1983's terrific Holy Diver album. Much like those two, hallowed Sabbath LPs, Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules, Holy Diver opened at full metallic throttle with the frenetic "Stand Up and Shout," before settling into a dark, deliberate, and hypnotic groove for the timelessly epic title track - a worthy successor to glorious triumphs past like Rainbow's "Stargazer" and the Sabs' "Sign of the Southern Cross.

Holy Diver is the potential Dio had always showed, fully unleashed: it became a heavy metal blueprint on which many groups that followed would be heavily influenced by. Dio held the same ethic throughout its career: this band was here to bring you heavy ing metal the way it should be brought. While this has made their work fairly consistent, it also made certain Holy Diver was never bested: this record stands on lonely heights. The epic title track relies more on the singer's performance than anything else on the album, and it's good for him that it just so happens his vocal performance is one of the best in his career. The mystical intro is of course another song trademark, and Campbell's solo and slower playing throughout the song are very tasteful.

Holy Diver is American heavy metal band Dio's debut album. History Released on May 25, 1983, it has been hailed by critics as Dio's best work and a classic staple in the heavy metal genre. The album was eventually certified Gold in the US on September 12, 1984 and Platinum on March 21, 1989. The original vinyl release had a photo-montage LP-liner. The album was remastered and re-released by Rock Candy Records in 2005.
