Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Dio Ed.
The man, the myth, the legend. Ronnie James Dio may have been departed now nearly a decade but the much loved man’s status and statue lives on and controversially so with a hologram taking his place at select live shows. Fronting Dio, Heaven & Hell, BlackSabbath, Elf and Rainbow at various points in a career spanning 53 years and appearing in the Tenacious D film “The Pick of Destiny” everything came to a sad and sudden end when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2009. His most famous moment is probably 1983’s album “Holy Diver” which can only be described as a quintessential Metal classic!
In the Red Corner we have Los Angeles California three bother two sister act, no relation to Whoopi Goldberg rockers Lilac. The youngest of the Cristea family is Keyboard player Justin with the age ranging to 20 year old Guitarist Samuel. In the Blue corner, in case you hadn’t guessed it we have Westfield Massachusetts Metalcore heroes Killswitch Engage fronted by Howard Jones, now in LightThe Torch. So can Lilac topple the reigning Kings of Metalcore, whose album “The End of Heartache” is a stone wall classic? You decide!
