If you know what you are doing you can login and try it out Hamlet - in a way it is what was to be expected. I think this could either be a surprise hit or a complete flop, but good luck to LL.

O dio mio, when will you guys ever learn that the lightweight Dio was active in the genre of hard rock, not heavy metal?

Hamlet Au

Ahaha, Orca, he was more or less before my time, yes, but Wikipedia does say "Ronald James Padavona (July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010), better known as Ronnie James Dio, was an American rock and heavy metal vocalist and songwriter. He performed with, amongst others, Elf, Rainbow [METAL!], Black Sabbath [HELLA METAL!], Heaven & Hell, and his own band Dio [METAL AS A MOFO!]."

Rainbow: more or less the follow up of Deep Purple = hard rock
Black Sabbath = first wave of british hard rock

Actually Heavy Metal is a kid of the 80s, while most of the bands Dio sang with were 70s, which means still blues and psycedelic hippie influenced hard rock. The borders are not well-defined, we're entering a grey zone with all those bands, but Dio as a singer clearly was too soft and melodic and missed the attitude for real HM.
