DIO “HOLY DIVER” VIDEO, VIA KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
Killswitch Engage already did Dio justice with their great cover of “Holy Diver;” but boy oh boy have they one-upped themselves with the video. This is as epic a tribute as could be, with the band in full medieval garb. Justin Foley plays the king, Mike D the warrior, Joel Stroetzel the sorceror, and Howard Jones the sword-forger (!), and the four conspire to save the princess (what else?). Adam D. is conspicuously absent from the plot line (due to his back injury, perhaps), but is in the fake performance footage sections. This is the definition of METAL.
[Ed: Adam D. is the sleeping princess (naturally!). Thanks to Bryan for the tip.]
