RIPPER ON THE ROAD..........

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: DIO DISCIPLES ANNOUNCE FIRST-EVER US TOUR!

Some fans figured that with the passing of Ronnie James Dio in 2010, one of metal's greatest voices of all-time had been silenced forever. But Dio's music will live on forever, and many of his friends and/or former band mates are making sure of it, as they have reunited as Dio Disciples – a concert celebration to the former singer of Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and Elf (and successful/respected solo artist). And while Dio Disciples has already performed overseas, US fans have waited patiently for their chance to catch the group. Soon, their wish will be granted.

The band (which is comprised of singers Tim "Ripper" Owens and Toby Jepson, guitarist Craig Goldy, bassist Rudy Sarzo, keyboardist Scott Warren, and drummer Simon Wright) has announced a string of dates (with more to be announced), which as of now, kicks off on September 22nd at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY, and wraps up on October 9th at Trees in Dallas, TX. Keep your eyes peeled to Dio Disciples' Facebook page for announcements regarding additional US tour dates.

Touching upon almost every era of Dio's stellar career, you can expect to hear faithful and heavy renditions of such classics as "The Last in Line," "Rainbow in the Dark," "Holy Diver," "Heaven and Hell," "Neon Knights," and "Man on the Silver Mountain," among countless others.

And Dio Disciples have been receiving rave show reviews, including the Planet Mosh website, which gave a recent London performance a 10/10 rating, and proclaimed, "The performance was a fitting tribute to the memory of the great man himself. I'm not sure there is a better way of keeping the legacy alive, than by witnessing this group of men with such outstanding ability pour every ounce of their being into delivering Dio’s music so perfectly."

Get ready US fans, as it will soon be time to "Stand Up and Shout" to an evening of Dio music once again.

HAIL! Performs IRON MAIDEN Classic With Portuguese 'Idol' Runner-Up; Video Available

Diana Silveira Piedade, the 25-year-old runner-up in the 2009/10 season of "Ídolos", the Portuguese version of "Pop Idol", joined HAIL! — the supergroup featuring mainstays Tim "Ripper" Owens (BEYOND FEAR, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) and Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA) — on stage on Sunday, May 30 at the Rock In Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal to perform a cover version of the IRON MAIDEN classic "The Number Of The Beast".

Video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

HAIL!'s current touring lineup also includes bassist James Lomenzo (WHITE LION, OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, MEGADETH) and drummer Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN).

Lomenzo is the last-minute replacement for SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray, who sadly passed away on May 24 at the age of 38.

Commented Owens: "It is very sad here without Paul jamming with us. It really breaks my heart!! He was so freaking good... But we lucked out to bring another friend in with James Lomenzo. He had to learn a lot of songs and he is really working hard at it... but we think of Paul every minute of the day."

TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS Comments On PAUL GRAY's Passing

In April 2010 it was announced that SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray had joined HAIL!, the supergroup featuring mainstays Tim "Ripper" Owens (BEYOND FEAR, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH), David Ellefson (MEGADETH) and Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA). He was supposed to replace the group's original member, David Ellefson, who was unable to take part in HAIL!'s upcoming touring activities due to his renewed collaboration with MEGADETH.

As previously reported, Gray was found dead in an Iowa hotel room early Monday morning (May 24). He was 38.

Owens has released the following statement to D.X. Ferris of the Cleveland Scene regarding Gray's passing:

"I would like to send my condolences to [Gray's] family. I played three or four times on stage with Paul and crossed paths a few other times throughout the years. He was always a great guy to be around and a great talent! I was looking forward to doing this HAIL! run with Paul on bass. Once again, let's pray for his family and keep them in our thoughts in their time of need."

TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS: 'We Have Lost A Great Human Being And The Best Singer Of Rock In The World'

Powerhouse vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the passing of legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW):

"A sad day, just a very sad day!!!

We have lost a great human being and the best singer of rock in the world.

Ronnie was my hero and my friend, I will miss him and his kind words. He taught me so much on stage and off stage.

I also would like so say that my heart is heavy for Wendy Dio [Ronnie's wife/manager], and we should all keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

I do not think of Wendy without Ronnie and I don't think of Ronnie without Wendy.

We all love you, Wendy... and we all will miss you, Ronnie, and we love you for everything you have given us!"

Commented Christy: "I am soooooooooooooo pumped to get out on the road and blast some heavy metal with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer! Tim Ripper Owens and I are beyond excited about this tour! The response to our debut album has been so amazing and I think people are going to be blown away when they hear these songs live! I'm sweating my buns off in the rehearsal room every day getting tighter and tighter on our songs so that we will be absolutely blistering when we get out on the road in July!

"Steve DiGiorgio [bass] and Jason Suecof [guitar] have prior commitments and won't be able to join us on this tour but we have the incredible musicians John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM) on guitar, Dennis Hayes (BEYOND FEAR, ex-ICED EARTH) on bass, and Matt Sorg (RINGWORM) on guitar joining CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED for this tour! We'll be playing our debut album in full and we'll have plenty more surprises as well!

"Joining us as host of the tour and also doing stand-up at each show will be the hilarious comedian and carrier of the heavy metal torch, Don Jamieson from VH1's 'That Metal Show'! I've known Don for many years and I'm so psyched to have him as part of this tour!

"Coming soon we'll have more big announcements about the tour, including opening bands in each market and other cool surprises! So get ready to raise your fists and bang your heads with CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED this summer!"

Added Owens: "Man, I really look forward to this short run of shows, just going out with some friends and playing in front of some of the best fans around. And watching Don every night just tops it off!!!"

Budapest, Hungary
March 5, 2010


CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED, the new project led by acclaimed metal drummer Richard Christy (ICED EARTH, DEATH, LEASH LAW, CONTROL DENIED, BURNING INSIDE), will release its self-titled debut album on February 2, 2010 via Metal Blade Records. The CD contains nine tracks, a bonus DVD ("The Making of Charred Walls of the Damned"), and comes in a digipack.

The recording sessions for the CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED CD took place at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof, who has previously worked with TRIVIUM, ALL THAT REMAINS, BURY YOUR DEAD, AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DAATH, CHIMAIRA, DEVILDRIVER and GOD FORBID, among others.

Check out the video for "Ghost Town"

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED is:
* Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ICED EARTH) - Vocals
* Richard Christy - Drums
* Jason Suecof - Guitar, Producer
* Steve DiGiorgio (SADUS, TESTAMENT) - Bass

"Charred Walls Of The Damned" track listing:
01. Ghost Town
02. From The Abyss
03. Creating Our Machine
04. Blood on Wood
05. In a World So Cruel
06. Manifestations
07. Voices Within the Walls
08. The Darkest Eyes
09. Fear in the Sky
+ Bonus DVD - "The Making of Charred Walls of the Damned"

 Owens says, "Well…I must say, I'm not sure what people are expecting from this CD. I mean it's coming from the mind of a drummer and we all know the crazy things he does on 'The Howard Stern Show'. That being said… THIS WILL BLOW YOU AWAY; it is a great CD! I love it!! All the way across the board… Nice job, Richard (and Carlos the Lizard)."

CHARRED WALLS OF THE DAMNED recorded a cover of the song "Nice Dreams" by the Minneapolis metal band POWERMAD as a bonus track for the Japanese version of "Charred Walls Of The Damned". U.S. fans will have the chance to buy this track as well, as "Nice Dreams" will be made available on iTunes the day the album is released in the States.

"I've been a huge fan of POWERMAD's classic 1989 album, 'Absolute Power', since it came out," explains Christy. "I wanted to do a cover song that I loved and at the same time, one that a lot of people probably have not heard. 'Absolute Power' has been out of print for some time now so I'm sure the song 'Nice Dreams' will be new to a lot of people, but will also bring back some great memories for metalheads like me who love the song and who love POWERMAD."

Following his spectacular enlistment by exceptional Swedish guitarist, Yngwie Malmsteen, and his awesome vocal performance on the most recent Malmsteen album, Perpetual Flame (2008), American metal  vocalist Tim 'Ripper' Owens (Beyond Fear, ex-Judas  Priest, ex-Iced  Earth) is set to surprise the public with the release of his  first  solo album, Play My Game, in May 2009. The offering consists of around a dozen brand-new tracks that Owens composed  himself or together with renowned friends, such as Bob Kulick, Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Mike Callahan (ex-Earshot) and John Comprix (Beyond Fear, Ringworm).  

The list of guest  musicians  featured on Owens solo debut is even more spectacular: along with Bob Kulick and Chris Caffery and the others, he was supported by the guitarists Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), Michael Wilton (Queensryche), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), bassists Marco Mendoza (ex-Whitesnake), Billy Sheehan (Mr Big, ex-David Lee Roth), Dave Ellefson (ex-Megadeth), Rudy Sarzo (Dio, ex-Ozzy Osbourne, ex-Quiet Riot), James  Lomenzo (Megadeth), Tony Franklin (ex-Blue Murder), Dennis Hayes (Beyond Fear) and drummers Simon Wright (ex-AC/DC, Dio), Vinny Appice (Heaven & Hell), Ray Luzier (Korn), Bobby Jarzombek (Riot, Halford), and Brett Chassen. Fans and experts alike will love this sensational all-star line-up and may rest  assured that the haunting songs will effortlessly live up  to this illustrious  cast of musicians: Tim Ripper Owens has never sounded more impressive, melodic and multi-faceted!  

“I’ve gotten better  as a songwriter,” Owens  explains. “And I also write songs that the fans can  really get into  and get their fist pounding in the air. I’ve always been a great fan of the Black Sabbath line-up featuring Ronnie James Dio, and I love Judas Priest. Both bands delivered records that are straight forward and go directly to the bloodstream – which also happens to be my compositional approach.”

5/15/09: Germany / Austria / Switzerland
5/18/09: UK / rest of Europe

MARTIN POPOFF'S BOOK: JUDAS PRIEST "PAINKILLERS"

Lifelong fan and preeminent metal historian Martin Popoff examines the Priest's rich legacy album by album, anthem by anthem, along the way recounting the band's shocking split with Halford in the mid '90s and his triumphant return in 2003. Having interviewed all the principals in the band repeatedly over the years, Popoff gives a firsthand account of Priest's rocky, often comical ride through the '70s, and through the gold and platinum records of the '80s, expertly detailing the long road back to the arena headline status the band now enjoys as heavy metal's proudest ambassadors read more...

Help A Metal-Head For The Holidays

NJ Club Fire - As previously reported, the Pirate's Den, virtually the only original metal club in the Philly/NJ/NYC area, burned down early Wednesday morning. In the last couple of years, it has played host to touring nationals like BEYOND FEAR, CHRIS CAFFERY, METAL CHURCH, DIRTY RIG, GEORGE LYNCH, and many others. It was also the weekly hangout for metal fans, who could see 4-6 fledgling bands every Friday and Saturday. Owner Brian Cohen, who lived in one of the upstairs apartments (and was taken to the hospital with smoke inhalation) was beset by a triple pre-Christmas whammy: losing his livelihood, home and the club. Compounding matters is the fact Cohen lost his leg, years before, in an accident, so the Pirate's Den was a safe place for him to work.

An online fund has been set up to help Cohen, who lost everything. Bands and area fans, as well as possibly some outside visitors, are working on benefits in his honor, but right now there's a serious need for immediate cash. At this charitable time of year, if we metalheads can forego one less pack of cigarettes, or have one less beer the next time you go out and instead, donate those few dollars to a true fan/supporter of the metallic cause, it would be greatly appreciated, click here to donate.

Thanx for taking the time to read this article. All the best to you and your family. Happy holidays!
