I like the newer sound, I like Vivian Campbell's solo much better though.

Come to think of it - Viv's solo was the only thing that made the song worth a damn in the first place.

I loved the Holy Diver album - Vivian was my hero for years. But you know that song on any given album that you hit the Fast Forward button on? - Holy Diver was the song I always skipped.

"Caught in the Middle", "Don't Talk to Strangers" and of course "Rainbow in the Dark" were my favorite tunes on the album.

you are absolutely right..... the song is good but the solo of Vivian Campbell was/is outstanding and made the song something very special for me..

Holy Diver is a metal classic I think it was smart on their part to make a remake of this song because obviously it's well known,
but imo the original sounds much better.
I dislike the mix in the KSE version, I can't hear the vocals distinctly and it tires my ears...
(aww poor baby) happy.gif

Dio was an amazing artist. Every album in which he has song is classic full of fantastic metal songs. Holy Diver is my favorite and Killswitch version make justice this this amazing version. Congrats to them!
