Sorry Warner Brothers has cracked down on Youtube….the trailer is no longer available.
Fans lucky enough to score tickets to HEAVEN AND HELL’s Radio City Music Hall performance on March 30 — the concert sold out in a matter of minutes — were fortunate witnesses to the glorious return of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice. Onstage in the U.S. for the first time in 15 years, the group let loose an onslaught of iconic metal spotlighting Dio’s memorable tenure with BLACK SABBATH.
Rhino relives every bone-crushing riff and thunderous howl from the evening with a trio of releases available August 28. HEAVEN AND HELL “Live From Radio City Music Hall” will be available at regular retail outlets both as a two-disc CD set and as a DVD for a suggested list price of $19.98 and $19.99 respectively.
Available exclusively from http://www.rhino.com, the concert will also be released as a deluxe three-disc set (2CD/DVD) for a suggested list price of $49.98. The special set features tour memorabilia including a tour program, backstage laminate, glossy photos of the band and other tour items.
“Live From Radio City Music Hall” captures the band bashing its way through some of the Dio era’s best including “Mob Rules”, “Die Young”, “Neon Knights”, “Children Of The Sea” and an epic 15-minute-plus version of “Heaven And Hell”. The quartet also performed a pair of new songs — the hit single “The Devil Cried” and “Shadow Of The Wind”. Both songs debuted earlier this year on “Black Sabbath: The Dio Years” (Rhino/Warner Bros. Records), the first comprehensive introduction to the Dio era’s legacy. The DVD will include the entire show shot in breathtaking HD as well as a tour documentary and other bonus footage.
Following this spring’s successful U.S. tour, HEAVEN AND HELL is scheduled to spend the summer playing concerts and festivals around the world. In early September, the group will return to the U.S. for another round of shows.
Together for a short but memorable time — a trio of studio albums, a classic live album and a couple of tours — the second coming of BLACK SABBATH began in 1979 when founding members Iommi and Butler were joined by Dio. The former singer of ELF (and later RAINBOW and DIO) added his fiery, demonic howl to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group’s unmistakable sound.
The Dio-led lineup disbanded in 1983 and reunited in 1992 to record “Dehumanizer” and tour before again going on hiatus.

Blood Brothers is the 10th studio disc by Aussie rockers Rose Tattoo. Somehow this band has managed to stay off of my radar until now. After listening to Blood Brothers, it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do.
This disc has everything you would expect from an Australian Hard Rock band: great guitar work by Mick Cocks, some killer slide guitar by Dai Pritchard, excellent vocals by Angry Anderson, and plenty of thunder by drummer Paul DeMarco, and bassist Steve King.
I would describe Rose Tattoo’s Blood Brothers as Heavy Metal Party Rock. This is a superb foot-stomping disc that will make you want to fire up the barbeque, kick back, and crack open a cold one. The stand out tracks are Black Eyed Bruiser, Creeper, City Blues, and Man About Town. I would describe Rose Tattoo’s sound as a mixture of AC/DC, and ZZ Top. It is heavy, but not a clone of AC/DC in sound. The slide guitar gives this band a completely unique and very cool sound.
Check out the video for Black Eyed Bruiser and see what you think!
Although, I have my favorites, I don’t think there is a bad song on this disc. I have been enjoying Blood Brothers, and I think a bunch of you out there will too. For more information on Rose Tattoo, stop by their website here. You may have to pay an import price to find this one, but I have seen copies of this disc on Amazon.com for less than $20.00. Buy It, It is worth it.
