Ronnie James Dio: The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2 details released

More details about a new Dio compilation have been released.

Due October 9, "The Very Beast Of Dio Vol. 2" will feature 17 songs, including three bonus tracks, including one that hasn’t been released before.

The project is the follow-up to the gold-certified "The Very Beast Of Dio."

The new CD picks up exactly where the first volume left off — from 1996 onward. And in addition to featuring such latter-day Dio classics as "Killing The Dragon", "Push" and "Fever Dreams", the compilation will also include several rarities that fans have long requested on a single disc — "Electra" (which previously was only a part of the ultra-rare "Tournado" box set), "Prisoner of Paradise" and "Metal Will Never Die".
