Holy Diver, you’ve been down too long in the midnight sea

In the early days of Songspeak, our friend Adam D gave us plenty of material. A rabid music fan and complete nutjob, he’s gone on to much success as lead guitarist for metal band, Killswitch Engage.

We couldn’t be prouder… especially since Killswitch awesomely covered Ronnie James Dio’s epic song, Holy Diver and clearly had fun doing so. The song even appears on the latest release of Guitar Hero.

Each band member acted wonderfully, and of course– that’s Adam playing the part of the maiden towards the end of the video. The most beautiful lady (with sideburns) ever.

And here’s the original Dio version, in all its sword wielding glory.
