Band of the Week – Last in Line

February 17, 2016

Last In Line RIP Dio

This is a tough one. We all still feel the sting of losing Dio, but look to the comfort of Last In Line to carry us through the dark times. The band of original DIO members came together and payed homage to the incredible man that represented metal so well. As Last In Line gained recognition and realized people wanted more we have lost another. Jimmy Bain passed away recently as well. It turns out this new album will be the last we hear Bain on. Fitting in a sense.

With the tragedy aside I can say this album of new material called Heavy Crown is a great note to mark a career on. This is as close as we will come to having RJD back with us. Not to speak for Dio but I know he would be proud of the massive melodies, heavy atmospheres, and musical complexity. It may be hard to say goodbye to two legends, but this album will keep both of their passions alive. – Martell


In February of 2016, Last In Line’s debut album, “Heavy Crown” will be released, with the debut track, “Devil In Me” leading the charge. The band will gear up for a highly anticipated tour in both the U.S. and Europe in support of the record. The live set will include new songs alongside their early classic Dio-era works.

What started as a casual and fun reunion jam in a Los Angeles rehearsal room in 2011 has, in the ensuing years, grown into a fully-fledged recording project that has taken on a life of it’s own. Last In Line, the band, takes it’s name from the second Dio album released in 1984. Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell were Ronnie Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the “Holy Diver“, “Last In Line” and “Sacred Heart” albums – the records that defined the classic early Dio sound and have gone on to become part of Rock History!

RIP Dio and Bain
