Sword-and-sorcery maven Ronnie James Dio keeps trucking in these Lord Of The Rings/Harry Potter times with KILLING THE DRAGON, his ninth studio album. Retaining the same line-up as 2000's MAGICA, the only change comes in the shape of former Hurricane/House Of Lords guitarist Doug Aldrich. Although it's easy to dismiss Dio the lyricist as some guy who tends to write about rainbows, spells and other fantasy-linked matter, this particular outing has him penning allegories firmly rooted in the 21st century. The galloping title track alludes to electronic serfdom and digital dreams while taking aim at the grip computers and the internet have on society. "Rock & Roll" addresses the knee-jerk self-censorship some radio stations perpetuated immediately following 9/11's tragic events.
The longtime supporter of the charity The Children of the Night enlisted the aid of the King's Harbor Church Children's Choir to deliver the poignant-but-heavy "Throw Away Children." The rocking "Push" features an Aldrich guitar solo that cleaves closely to predecessor Vivian Campbell's penchant for tossing in Middle Eastern-flavored flourishes, while Scott Warren's keyboard runs on "Before The Fall" bring to mind Deep Purple great Jon Lord.
