Legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio recently spoke to Revolver magazine about the upcoming album from Heaven And Hell — the band featuring Black Sabbath members Dio, Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Vinny Appice (drums). The group's first LP since Sabbath's "Dehumanizer" (1992) is being recorded at Rockfield studios in Wales, U.K. (where "Dehumanizer" was also tracked).

"It sounds great," Ronnie said of the self-produced set which he co-wrote with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler during sessions in Los Angeles and England. "It's a real cross-section of everything we've done, from 'Heaven and Hell' through 'Mob Rules' and 'Dehumanizer'. I think there's a lot of 'Dehumanizer' in it, but a lot of other things, too, a real good blend of what this band has represented."

Heaven And Hell has scheduled the following European tour dates:

May 30 - Moscow, RUS @ B1 Maximum

Jun. 02 - Helsinki, FIN @ Icehall
June 3-6 - Solvesborg, SWE - Sweden Rock

Let's hope it will be less Dehumanizer and more H&H....
