WARNER BROS./RHINO TO RELEASE ULTIMATE METAL COLLECTION STAND UP AND SHOUT: THE DIO ANTHOLOGY 29 Tracks on Two-Disc Set in Stores May 27, 2003

LOS ANGELES-It's time to raise those horns in the air and pay tribute to the man-and the band-who made it sound so very, very cool to be very, very evil. STAND UP AND SHOUT: THE DIO ANTHOLOGY is here! Featuring two discs' worth of classic tracks spanning his entire career, STAND UP AND SHOUT is the only anthology to include songs from Ronnie James Dio's eras with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Elf and, of course, Dio. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Or does it? STAND UP AND SHOUT arrives augmented with dozens of photographs by rock's best photographers, a liner essay by noted rock scribe Lonn Friend, as well as Dio's own detailed track-by-track notes and remembrances. With two and a half of definitive heavy metal, this is one collection that simply, well, rules! STAND UP AND SHOUT will be available at retail outlets and www.rhino.com for a suggested list price of $24.98.

Growing up in Cortland, NY, Ronald Padavona, the man who became one of hard rock's all-time most distinctive voices, began his career with a series of high-school garage and doo-wop groups. By the time Ronnie James Dio formed Elf in 1970, he'd already had 13 years of experience playing rock 'n' roll. Elf was signed to Epic in 1972, and their debut album was produced by Deep Purple's Roger Glover and Ian Paice. As Deep Purple's opening act, Ronnie came to know Ritchie Blackmore, and later formed Rainbow with the guitar master.

For four years Rainbow built a reputation as one of the world's most popular hard rock bands. Dio became known for his soaring vocals and lyrics brimming with fantastic mythical visions. However, musical differences between Blackmore and Dio led to Dio's leaving after only a handful of albums to join the legendary Black Sabbath, then reeling from bitter in-fighting that resulted in the departure of founding singer Ozzy Osbourne. Dio's energy rekindled the Sabbath spirit, resulting in the epochal Heaven And Hell album in 1980. The mighty Mob Rules follows in 1981, but his initial alliance with Black Sabbath was doomed to be short-lived; after the concert recording Live Evil, Dio split to form the first incarnation of a band that will forever bear his name.

DIO! Songs of demonic peril and seduction! DIO! Visions of theatrical concerts with lasers and dragons! (The Sacred Heart tour was voted "Outstanding Stage Set" by Performance Magazine and "Most Creative Stage Set" by Pollstar.) DIO! Tenacious D could only dream of such glory.

Now, 20 years after the release of the first Dio LP, Holy Diver, it's time to take stock of the man's illustrious career. Ronnie James Dio has helped create some of the best-loved tracks still heard today on rock radio: "Man On The Silver Mountain," "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll," "Neon Knights," "Heaven And Hell," "Stand Up And Shout," "Holy Diver," "Rainbow In The Dark," "The Last In Line," and "Dream Evil." All of the hits are here, but the best part about STAND UP AND SHOUT: THE DIO ANTHOLOGY is that it also includes album tracks and live cuts to present the fullest possible picture of Dio and his work.

It's truly the next-best thing to being front-row center at the arena!
