DIO’s Holy Diver Getting Deluxe Reissue With Unreleased Live Album & Outtakes


Dio‘s classic 1983 album Holy Diver is getting a deluxe reissue with quite a few goodies! The CD and digital versions of the reissue will include a newly-remixed version of the album by Joe Barresi (Tool, Slipknot, etc.), a remaster of the original mix, a never-before-heard live album at the Selland Arena in Fresno, CA in 1983, and then a handful of outtakes and B-sides. The vinyl version will be just the Barresi mix and “Evil Eyes,” a B-side to the original “Holy Diver” single.
