Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Comprised of former members of Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell grew out of a 2006 reunion of post-Ozzy frontman Ronnie James Dio, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, and drummer Vinny Appice for the purpose of recording new tracks for a Sabbath compilation called The Dio Years. Heaven & Hell then toured, drawing deep from the Dio-era Sabbath catalogue. The masterful Heaven & Hell: Live from Radio City Music Hall is one result of that rekindled partnership, a two-hour, Gothic metal marathon filmed in 2007 before a thrilled New York City audience. Largely comprised of classic Sabbath material, the show unfolds with a deceptive ease. The seasoned bandmates play with graceful concentration even as they plunge into the maw of doomstruck power chords and grinding riffs, the wiry Dio stalking Heaven & Hell's swampy sound like some fusion of a crow and benevolent overlord. At times, it's impossible not to contradict oneself while trying to describe the group's intricate, paradoxical sound: "Children of the Sea," for instance, is somehow both a snaking and watery mystery. "E5150/After All (The Dead)" is equally epic and nonchalant. "I" is a show-stopping, nightmarish blues that leans toward the anthemic, while "Falling Off the Edge" is highlighted by a molten rhythm and Dio's taut vocal. This is a fine outing from a historic ensemble. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Fans lucky enough to score tickets to Heaven And Hell's Radio City Music Hall performance on March 30, 2007 - 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 the release of Live From Radio City Music Hall on DVD. Live From Radio City Music Hall captures the band bashing its way through some of the Dio era's best. The quartet also performed a pair of new songs - the hit single 'The Devil Cried' and 'Shadow Of The Wind' from the Rhino CD Black Sabbath: The Dio Years. The DVD includes the entire show shot in breathtaking HD, as well as a tour documentary and other bonus footage.

If you're reading this review, then I likely do not need to explain the greatness of the music contained on this disc. I think it's just assumed you know about the Dio era of Black Sabbath, which is what this is all based on. If you're not a Black Sabbath fan, then you should probably stop now, as this disc will not appeal to you. On the other hand, you might find something new you like! ;)

Here's the track listing of what's on the DVD:

1) E5150/After All (The Dead)
2) The Mob Rules
3) Children of the Sea
4) Lady Evil
5) I
6) The Sign of the Southern Cross
7) Voodoo
8) The Devil Cried
9) Computer God
10) Falling off the Edge of the World
11) Shadow of the Wind
12) Die Young
13) Heaven & Hell
14) Lonely is the Word
15) Neon Knights

Again, a seriously awesome collection of tunes - if you don't know them, you will be in for a great treat. I'm not going to go down each track individually here, as that's been done better elsewhere in other reviews. This is a DVD review, so I'm trying to stick to that stuff here. A few indidivual song remarks, though: Ronnie's wail at the start of the track "The Mob Rules" is quite impressive, given his age. I have to admit to being surprised at hearing that. Also, the track "I" was not one of my favorites, but live it's a heck of a lot better and more powerful than the studio recording. The concert portion of the DVD runs one hour and fifty five minutes.

Now, the Rhino press releases are making a big deal that this was filmed in "high definition". This is **NOT** a high def release; it is a standard def DVD release. There is no high def release (in either format) forthcoming (so I'm told from Rhino).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Return August 28, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ronnie James Dio DEFINES quality Heavy Metal. He was the perfect fit to join Black Sabbath after Ozzy's departure because Black Sabbath were the pioneers of quality Heavy Metal.

And indeed Black Sabbath during the Dio Years (1979-1982) made some of the best Metal songs ever. In April 2007 the band released a disk chronicling their time together The Dio Years , and launched a tour shortly after. But a few select shows kicked the tour off in March 2007 and Heaven & Hell: Live from Radio City Music Hall is a Class-A DVD recording of the 3/30/2007 performance.

The concert portion of the disk is all show, and Heaven & Hell: Live from Radio City Music Hall is recording that could be held up as an example of how to do a musical DVD correctly. There's no indulgence by some videographer that thinks a viewer wants to see effects like cut to black and white or split screen pop ups. The picture is crystal clear, and most importantly, the video doesn't jump around every 4 seconds, so you really get to see the performance in a way that feels like you have a front row seat to the concert instead of sitting there watching a DVD.

The sound is terrific. If you've got a surround system you're in for a pounding Heavy Metal experience. You get your choice of Dolby 5.1 or Dolby stereo.

Ronnie sounds great. One of the roadies in the Extras suggested that to hold up so well after all these years he must have "done a deal with the Devil"....Ha! Ya think! Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice are all on this night in late March 2007, and all of the boys clearly committed to each other to give performances that were true to the studio versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'm stunned... August 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
listening to the sabbath classics after their original conception more than 2 decades ago i was being the devil's advocate and waiting for the slightest flaw in Dio's voice. my scepticism faltered gradually and blew in my face at the terrific roar opening 'the mob rules'... i 've never heard dio screaming like this in ages. such energy is not even present in the monumental 'live evil'. a live album of the highest recommendation.
bless you, Dio, and bless the almighty sabbath/heaven and hell.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! True Metal is Back!! September 10, 2007
Format:DVD
Are you a fan of true heavy metal? Are you a fan of Black Sabbath with the great singer frontman Ronnie James Dio? If you are, buy this historic DVD. THis was the Dio led Sabbath's first show in the USA in 15 years. It was as if they never had separated. Dio's voice at 65+ is still one of the best rock and roll and heavy metal have ever heard. He can still hit the notes,high, low and menacing. This DVD is not only entertaining, but historic. We may never see this powerful lineup again on stage after this current Heaven and Hell tour. My suggestion is buy this DVD and if you get a chance to see them, DO IT!

Butler's bass work is fantastic, Appice is a master on the drums, and Iommi is a true metal god on the guitar. He is the master of heavy metal riffs. From the menacing and plodding After All ( The Dead) to the last track, the great Neon Knights, his talent shows through. One thing I enjoyed was that Dio is a true gentleman, unlike many modern metal singers,he shakes hands with the crowd, introduces the tracks, and gives his thanks and appreciation to the crowd. He related in the "Extras" section of the DVD that the fans are everything, and his and the rest of Sabbath's performance show it. Overall a great DVD.

Right. I haven't heard this one yet, but I just ordered it. Have a couple of these with no bass on 5.1 including INXS live at Wembley, and ...well one was a burn, but I'll be interested to hear this one and report back..,.

So tell us all, oh first DVD owner
I don't know. I would check youtube for any promotional clips, and wait for the reviews to come in before spending cash on the DVD, if you're unsure, or think the editing will be bad. You can always go with the CD set, if the visuals don't make you happy. I'd wait for the reviews to come in... Read more
