UNTIL DEATH DO WE MEET AGAIN
Frontiers Music Srl
Release: September 14, 2018
Dream Child was conceived during a brainstorming session with Serafino (President of Frontiers) and Craig Goldy one day while discussing other matters. Craig had been listening to a lot of his favorite bands a lot recently, Deep Purple and Rainbow's “Rising" album, among others in that style and had noticed that many people who also love those bands often have the very same comments as one another: "They don't make music like that anymore!" Even though Craig said that in passing, Serafino asked him a question that would forever shape his future.
During the very first public memorial for our most beloved Ronnie James Dio, Craig Goldy had mentioned that whenever he does start writing original material again that he would utilize everything that he had learned from working side by side with the Master for so many years. The name is inspired by one of his lyrics on the "Dream Evil" album and the nickname he gave him at the time, Dream Child!

‘’We are so very fortunate to have bassist Rudy Sarzo as a featured guest, Simon Wright on drums, Wayne Findlay on guitars and keyboards, and a surprise vocal discovery from Argentina, Diego Valdez, whose voice will send shivers up your spine!’’ said Craig Goldy.
Craig follows: ‘’This album will bring back memories of the days most people have thought were long gone and never to return, yet it is also new and fresh enough to be unique with some unexpected twists and turns!! No more "same old, same old" here, no fillers. Every song is an oasis in the desert and a rare gem in the coal mines of life in this new world that thinks the past greatness of rock would remain in the past. We've brought it back to life once again!
I am very proud of this album and all who have made this become a reality. There are some big names who've lent a hand in the writing and I am amazed at the new and aggressive sound that producer Alessandro Del Vecchio has brought to these songs! I hope you all agree..."
We start the album with ‘’Under The Wire’’, the song begins with a little piano intro that reminds me a lot of Mike Oldfield’s ‘’Tubular Bells’’. I don’t know if this was intentional, but it made me giggle a little (‘’Tubular Bells’’ got used a lot in a Dutch tv show made for children). The song itself is very powerful, it raises the bar pretty high for the next songs (for the whole album basically). ‘’You Can’t Take Me Down’’ has a bit more chill vibe, kind of ‘’easily listening metal’’. ‘’It Is What It Is’’ is a great headbang song, probably also great for in your fitness playlist, same goes for ‘’Playin’ With Fire’’, and basically the whole album. ‘’Until Death Do We Meet Again’’ (the song) is a masterpiece, and it makes it even better that there is a meaning, a story, behind the lyrics.
Craig, I will just say it, you have definitely done Dio proud. ‘’Until Death Do We Meet Again’’ is an amazing heavy metal album, all round fantastic and solid as a rock. I rate the album an 8/10.
