dioAT 532x400 Ronnie James Dio ( July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010 )Never thought I will be writing this so soon, here it goes. Ronnie James Dio was an American heavy metal vocalist, songwriter and an inspiration of vast amounts to all musicians around the world. He performed with Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, and his own band Dio. His most famous work is known on his first Black Sabbath album called Heaven and Hell as he replaced Ozzy Osbourne. This was the album that captured my attention at 11 years old and has been one of my favorites ever since. To many, Dio was known as one of heavy metal’s most powerful singers, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the “devil’s horns” hand gesture in metal culture.

I’m used to feeling quite safe whenever Matt Bailie is around. As one of the doormen at well known Montreal watering hole MadHatters (slogan: The Best Dive in Town!), Matt is charged with protecting drunken morons (i.e. me) from themselves and other equally inebriated patrons. So when I first heard his band The Catalyst, I was a bit shocked.  You can’t help the uneasy, ominous feeling that develops in your gut as a result of their ultra heavy sound. Drums pound with an almost inhuman ferocity, while discordant guitars chug out machine gun rhythms and virtuoso-level leads. All this is topped with Bailie’s tortured howls and (let’s face it) downright scary grunts. Proving that our music scene is more than pansy-asses with tight jeans, bad haircuts and limp wrists, The Catalyst brings the metal like few others, combining the intricacy and melody of early Metallica and Pantera with the death metal vocals and breakdowns of New Wave of American Heavy Metal bands like Lamb of God. But enough from me. Here’s bassist Mike Marino, telling you what the metalheads of need to know. [ Continue Reading ]
