Have you ever sat back listening to your old school Black Sabbath records wondering what it would sound like had they the same production abilities we have today? Well, if you have, this is your answer - so have a fresh pair of undies ready, there's a likelihood your bowels might get ruptured.

OK, you can rename it anything you like, we all know this is the resurrection of Dio-era Black Sabbath. This album really makes up for any shortcomings the albums Dehumanizer, Mob Rules, and Heaven & Hell may have had. Whether you enjoyed the albums or not, its hard to deny that the signature depressive guitar work of Tony Iommi wasn't as present as it was in previous albums. Ironically this album sounds more Sabbath-y than when they were using the Black Sabbath moniker.

17.05.2010 Released almost exactly a year before his passing, The Devil You Know is a great way to end the legacy of a great man. One of Dio's most haunting and powerful performances of his life combined with that of fellow metal legends Iommi & Butler.

Deceased or not, one hell of a metal classic.

  When I listen to this album, I just wonder what else Dio could have done. These guys are in their 60's and are heavier than ever. I'd like Sabbath to reunite with Tony Martin, and maybe make a continuation of H&H.

Exactly. Listening to that album, it's very hard to take in how old the band members who made it were. Songs like "Bible Black", and the chilling "The Turn Of The Screw" sound like a young band just entering their prime musically, not a band of old men who were making music long before I was even thought of. lol Dio's voice just seemed to get even better the older he got, and I also wonder what more great albums he could have made, both with the Sabbath guys, and with his solo band. At least "The Devil You Know" (and the 3 newly recorded songs for "The Dio Years") is a fitting swansong and epitaph to his amazing career in metal, as it is an immense album.

Yes, Id like to see Tony Martin, or Ian Gillan returning to Sabbath or working with the Sabbath guys again. Even without Dio at the helm, Im sure the Sabs still have some great music still left in them.

  Men, this guy deserves the claps! Told ya! This is a fucking album, a mix of tradicional Dio Heavy Metal and a bit of black sabbath ozzy years (I mean Heavy Metal with Doom Metal)!

  You cant begin to understand how excited I was about H&H, to get to see Dio era Sabbath ressurected. I still cant belive hes gone, but one day well all be seated at the Golden Halls

Rating: 9 Great album - heavy and dark with Tony Iommi's trademark riffs, thunder-like rhythm section and emotional vocals of Ronnie James Dio. It's such a pity they were able to record only this one album...

Rating: 10 The album was a deep heavy metal ....

The album is very heavy and well built ...

By Tony pounding riff is very beautiful ......

Rating: 10 Metal Ronnie James dio likes of which we have the right to bring a gift.

In the dance world trade and Ronnie James dio comes out of the heart and the heavy sound of angry protest itself is therapeutic for our tired hearts young.

**He should never be out of mind**
