  STEVE GOLDBY'S HEAVY METAL CHRONICLES
A SPECIAL SEVEN FROM RONNIE JAMES DIO

16th May 2011

steve goldby




Some things will never die and will last forever. The lover of life's not a sinner. The ending is just a beginner. The closer you get to the meaning. The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming.

Seven. It would be easy to select seventy great Ronnie James Dio tracks. Well if it seems to be real, it's illusion. For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life. Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer.

Some things are true and always will be, forever. The world is full of Kings and Queens, who blind your eyes and steal your dreams, it's Heaven and Hell, oh well. And they'll tell you black is really white, the moon is just the sun at night, and when you walk in golden halls, you get to keep the gold that falls.

Country Girl

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become."



When A Woman Cries

"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without."



Mistreated

"However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act upon them?"



Lonely Is The Word

"There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it."



Rainbow In The Dark

"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger."



Children Of The Sea

"When words are both true and kind, they can change our world."



Love Is All

"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."



All quotes in speech marks by Buddha circa 411-483 BCE. Black Sabbath's 'Heaven and Hell' lyrics, as used in the first three paragraphs written by Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
