Dio

16 classic Dio pieces. Vote for your favourite in each matchup. After a few days I'll tally up the votes and set up Round Two.

Songs are what I'd generally consider to be the most loved by Dio fans. And song pairings are randomized, and shall be re-randomized each round (using the random number function in the spreadsheet).

Stargazer vs The Last in Line
Catch the Rainbow vs Fever Dreams
All the Fools Sailed Away vs Holy Diver
Kill the King vs Rainbow in the Dark
Children of the Sea vs Man on the Silver Mountain
Die Young vs Temple of the King
Heaven and Hell vs Bible Black
Egypt vs Tarot Woman

I'll cast my own votes as well:

Stargazer vs The Last in Line
Two epic songs. I can't pick a winner. Stargazer wins the coin toss.

Catch the Rainbow vs Fever Dreams
I was never such a big fan of Catch the Rainbow. And Fever Dreams is the best song Dio did post 80's.

All the Fools Sailed Away vs Holy Diver
That main riff just defines Dio solo.

Kill the King vs Rainbow in the Dark
That song is power metal before power metal was a thing.

Children of the Sea vs Man on the Silver Mountain
Both great. I guess it's just Rainbow over Sabbath this time for me.

Die Young vs Temple of the King
Really hard since I love both in different ways. But Temple of the King has a real magical feel to it.

Heaven and Hell vs Bible Black
Easy choice here.

Egypt
vs Tarot Woman
A vintage Blackmore song against an epic Dio solo song. Almost went the other way, I really like Tarot Woman, but it's the out-of-this-world vocal performance that swings my vote back to Egypt (the Chains Are On).

The Last in Line
Catch the Rainbow
Holy Diver
Rainbow in the Dark
Children of the Sea
Temple of the King
Heaven and Hell
Egypt

Some of those were real tough, especially the first seeing as both are huge favorites from his time with Rainbow and solo career but The Last in Line barely gets the nod.

I was going to post the winners, but we have 2 ties!  

Children of the Sea vs Man on the Silver Mountain.
Egypt vs Tarot Woman

I'll let the voting go on another day, in case we get new voters.

You seem to be the only one with this opinion  Neutral   Currently losing 1-8.

How about breaking either one of the ties mentioned above?

No more new voters, I guess?

Next poster gets to break one of these ties (even if he/she already voted):

Children of the Sea vs Man on the Silver Mountain.
Egypt vs Tarot Woman

I'll break the other one that's left over.

Uh... now S.D. on his power trip picked both winners.

I guess I'll let it stand, though I'd have voted for the exact opposite songs Razz

Here are the results:

Stargazer over The Last in Line (6-2)
Catch the Rainbow over Fever Dreams (6-2)
Holy Diver over All The Fools Sailed Away (8-1)
Kill the King over Rainbow in the Dark (5-3)
Children of the Sea over Man on the Silver Mountain (4-4)
Die Young over Temple of the King (5-3)
Heaven and Hell over Bible Black (8-0)
Tarot Woman over Egypt (4-4)

Second round will be up later today.
