Clear of the sound, of course, force of chunky musical tone will not compare to its outstanding!! Master of this time  the power of the official class sound, bursts from the opening!Following the SE of this tour is only “Lock Up The Wolves”. “Wild One” is’s the pole position in the live of the original, but the second half of the show has become a main connection or broadcast. However, heavy in the middle also “Lock Up The Wolves”, of BLACK SABBATH 1980 or a year “War Pigs”, atmosphere perfect score in reminiscent solemn start “After All (The Dead)” at the 2007 HEAVEN & HELL . It is the DIO that could not be said to be “light” even Vivienne era of golden age, but it makes me taste fully the profound mood that is not called the “strongest” expected.  Beyond description barrel and presence vocals of Ronnie shining what the midst of its weight gives off. Keyboard of mellow guitar Jens is Shimiwataru of Rowan without losing the sharpness and distortion while the heavy roar from the speakers, the rhythm of Teddy and Simon powerful and, trembling air. It is a strong style this sound does not lose to play! In subsequent “Don’t Talk To Strangers”, I would like you to numbness in scenes from delicate part at the beginning, to turn into a part of the main inscribe sharply. And “The Last In Line” and “Heaven And Hell”, contrast since the mid spectacular dazzling world from the first half of melodious overwhelming as well. It may be said that the view of the world that Ronnie was envisioned in music, playing a heavy, which has been pursued from DIO is formed, had borne fruit here. Hard and emotional, yet catchy Welcome “Rainbow In The Dark”, far from listening of this work up to!Climax sublime song of Ronnie play and members are aggregated into a single point high Tsu top no matter how many times listening! Medley spread as a panoramic view of the world that is different from the Claude Schnell predecessor keyboard of Jens “Egypt (The Chains are On)” and the “Holy Diver” is also excellent further.  And, to say the least of put the feelings of many thoughts highlight the strongest last, “We Rock!” It is the last number of as “DIO previous period” is this, It is the last 5 minutes was “strongest” and DIO. Was there last night but also to “DIO late” lasted until 2008, but there is a fall just before the Byoma, the last stage of the unexpected. The show that I am determined to face “today!’s” Last, also the history of DIO spanning a quarter of a century, I have only this overnight. After the frenzy that is dazzling is swept like a storm, did you come and go to the chest of Ronnie which has finished the fight with a band of his own, or was the thought … what.  Since the mid of the actual stage, contents in this work is located in the contents of the recording about 52 minutes, but the deployment and placement of the music is built on, which is calculated exactly the introduction, development, turn, conclusion. Not only listen to sound board official grade this live aberrant valuable, even as pure entertainment, it will satisfy a great deal of fan. As if, once the deluxe edition of “Lock Up The Wolves” is to be released in the future, you would think so …… or not than not can be only this work bonus disc, It is a sound that was a natural official.  However, because the official is not issued, it is not only the unofficial do. Also was housed in the sound board DEHUMANIZER tour of BLACK SABBATH and “DEFINITIVE BOSTON 1992”, the most important title, Ronnie fan / heavy metal mania of all that captures the missing link of Ronnie history official’ve missed is must hear one is the appearance here by its fully qualified press CD!

DIOの最重要音源がオフィシャルレベルのニューマスターで甦りました! 1990年“最強のDIO”のファン必聴・必携盤が、「WILD NIGHTS」(Zodiac)に続いてまたもや完全限定プレスCDで登場! 今回は何と海外より独自入手した公式級サウンドボード音源! 本作はDIOの「LOCK UP THE WOLVES」ツアーで最終公演となった10月7日のテキサス州ダラス公演を、過去のいかなる同日音源をも上回るサウンドで収録した決定盤です!

ロニー・ジェイムズ・ディオが「自分自身のヘヴィメタルを追及する」ために結成し、波乱万丈の時代を歩んだバンドDIO。そのラインナップが最強であり特別だった刹那こそ、1990年の「LOCK UP THE WOLVES」時代です。“最強”とされる由縁は、先日プレスCD4枚組でリリースされた「WILD NIGHTS」(Zodiac)が、優れたオーディエンス・マスターで明らかにしてくれました。若さと才気溢れるローワン・ロバートソンのギターに、様式美のベスト・キーボードであるイェンス・ヨハンソンのプレイ、隠れた実力派テディ・クックと質実剛健なサイモン・ライトのリズムセクション。そして、彼らを率い、ステージに君臨するロニーのヴォーカル・・・・・・いずれもが圧倒的でした。これをレギュラー・ライヴとして毎回披露していたのですから、“最強”の称号は誰もが納得するところでしょう。
では、なぜ“特別”なのか。その理由は、この編成がアルバム1枚・ツアー1回で終わり、BLACK SABBATH再結成へと流れていった歴史にあります。ロニーがこの世を去った現在に至っても唯一、公式ライヴが残っていないローワン・ロバートソン時代。その歴史のミッシングリンクがついに繋がったのです!

本ライヴはかつて既発音源が存在していましたが、全編に渡ってヒスノイズ・スクラッチノイズが存在し、音質的には厳しいものがありました。数年前のギフト・タイトル「THE SILENCE OF THE WOLVES」では音質の向上が話題となったものの、それでもあくまで延長線上のレベル。しかし! 今回のマスターはサウンドのクオリティがまるで違います!! 音のクリアさはもちろん、分厚い楽音の迫力は既発とは比較になりません!!!
オフィシャル級サウンドの威力は、オープニングから炸裂! このツアーのみのSEに続くのは「Lock Up The Wolves」。本来のライヴでは「Wild One」がポールポジションなのですが、放送の関係かショウ後半がメインとなっています。しかし、ミドルで重い「Lock Up The Wolves」も、1980年BLACK SABBATHの「War Pigs」や、2007年HEAVEN & HELLの「After All (The Dead)」での荘厳なスタートを彷彿とさせて雰囲気満点。黄金期のヴィヴィアン時代でさえ「軽い」と言われかねなかったDIOですが、さすが“最強”と呼ばれるだけはある重厚ムードを存分に味わわせてくれます。
その重さの中にあってこそ輝くロニーのヴォーカルが放つ存在感たるや筆舌に尽くしがたい。ヘヴィに歪みながらも鋭さを失わないローワンのギターがスピーカーから轟き、パワフルなサイモンとテディのリズムが空気を震わせ、そして芳醇なイェンスのキーボードが染み渡る。このサウンドも演奏に負けないストロング・スタイルです! 続く「Don’t Talk To Strangers」では、冒頭の繊細なパートから、鋭く刻み込むメインのパートへと一転する場面に痺れていただきたい。同じく「The Last In Line」や「Heaven And Hell」も、メロディアスな前半部分から壮大な世界がめくるめく中盤以降の対比が圧倒的。ロニーが楽曲で思い描いた世界観と、DIO結成から追求してきたヘヴィな演奏が、ここに実を結んでいたと言えるでしょう。
キャッチーでありながらエモーショナル、そしてハードな「Rainbow In The Dark」こそ、本作最大の聴きどころ! メンバーのプレイとロニーの歌が一点に集約され昇華するクライマックスは何度聴いても最っ高! さらにイェンスのキーボードが前任のクロード・シュネルとは異なる世界観をパノラマのように広げる「Egypt (The Chains are On)」と「Holy Diver」のメドレーも絶品です。
そして、なんと言っても最強最後のハイライトは、万感の想いを込めての「We Rock」! これが“前期DIO”としてのラスト・ナンバーであり、DIOが“最強”だった最後の5分間なのです。2008年まで続いた“後期DIO”にも最終夜はありましたが、そちらは病魔に倒れる直前であり、不測のラストステージ。「今日が最後だ!」の決意で臨んだショウは、四半世紀に及ぶDIOの歴史でも、この一夜しかないのです。めくるめく熱狂が嵐のように吹き荒れた後、自分のバンドで戦い終えたロニーの胸に去来したのは、どんな想いだったのか・・・。

本作の収録内容は実際のステージの中盤以降,約52分収録の内容ではありますが、楽曲の配置や展開は起承転結をきっちり計算した上で構築されています。この貴重極まるライヴを公式級のサウンドボードで聴けるだけでなく、純粋なエンターテイメントとしても、ファンを大いに満足させるでしょう。もし、将来「Lock Up The Wolves」のデラックスエディションがリリースされるとしたら、ボーナスディスクは本作しかあり得ないのではないか……そう考えてしまうほど、公式然としたサウンドなのです。
しかし、オフィシャルが出さないのですから、アンオフィシャルがやるしかない。BLACK SABBATHのDEHUMANIZERツアーをサウンドボードで収めた「DEFINITIVE BOSTON 1992」と同じく、公式が見逃しているロニー史のミッシングリンクを捉えた最重要タイトル、すべてのロニー・ファン/ヘヴィメタル・マニアが聴かねばならない一本が、完全限定プレスCDでここに登場です!
