DIO: ‘The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2’ First-Week Sales Revealed

The second volume of DIO‘s best tracks, “The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2”, sold 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The follow-up to the gold-certified “The Very Beast Of Dio”, the 17-track CD picks up exactly where the first volume left off — from 1996 onward. And in addition to featuring such latter-day DIO classics as “Killing The Dragon”, “Push” and “Fever Dreams”, the compilation will also include several rarities that fans have long requested on a single disc — “Electra” (which previously was only a part of the ultra-rare “Tournado” box set), “Prisoner of Paradise” and “Metal Will Never Die”. Also included as part of the release are liner notes penned by long-time supporter and friend of Ronnie‘s, Eddie Trunk from VH1 Classic‘s “That Metal Show”, as well as an awesome front cover painting by artist Marc Sasso (who previously created the covers for DIO‘s “Killing The Dragon” and “Master Of The Moon” albums).

As the Ronnie James Dio Facebook page administrator raves, “I absolutely know that every single Dio fan is going to want ‘The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2’! I’m a HUGE Dio fan, just like all of you, and I can’t tell you how excited I am about this CD. I had the pleasure of listening to the CD that was produced, mixed, and remastered by Ronnie‘s longtime engineer, Wyn Davis, and it sounds BLOODY INSANE!!!”
