According to a Non-Metalhead | Rising

Is Rainbow’s classic “Rising” good enough to convert our resident “non-metalhead?!”

This week Danielle has joined us once again as our resident “non-metalhead” to discuss her first thoughts on Rainbow’s Rising. This was the album that put Ronnie James Dio on the map as well as one of his first forays into fantasy themed lyrics. We discuss the album track-by-track along with chatting about interesting tidbits along the way. Is Rising great enough to impress even someone without a metal background!? You don’t want to miss this!

In 1976 the iconic proto-metal band Rainbow released their greatest record “Rising.” “Rising” is consistently considered to be a influential album in terms of both musicality and themes.

Horns High,

PS- When asked who were his favorites in the sports world, Wendy Dio answered: “His favorite teams were the New York Yankees and the New York Giants — a true blue New Yorker!” She added: “Wayne Gretsky, Kobe Bryant and many others gave him their jerseys.” – sportskeeda
