Kill The King - Rainbow - Long Live Rock N Roll (Cassette, Album)

Rising by far. Side one is great as well, but the real magic starts rolling when you delve into side two. Stargazer and Light in the Black are simply amazing. Location: Ballston Spa, New York Rainbow Rising! StrungOutOnStrings , May 5, Nothing can top Kill the king and Gates of Babylon. Motorcity supernaut , supernaut , ifihadafish and 9 others like this.

Nighthawk68 , streetlegal , Rufus rag and 4 others like this. Location: Derry, Ireland. Rising is a masterpiece Motorcity supernaut , angelo73 and Pouchkine like this. Location: moscow. Rising is a bit one dimensional, it needs a ballad or an instrumental and 2 of the songs are pure filler. So it's basically 4 great tracks and that's not enough for a best album.

Location: Michigan. Rainbow Rising for sure! Every track is great. It was voted best heavy metal record of all time by Kerrang!

The band was going through members left and right before finally settling on the line up they had. But they managed to create a great disc in spite of themselves.

Other songs rock very well and sound like good prog metal to this day. I do like their next one better though. As always the deluxe versions are better. Why didn't someone do this back in the 80" or 90's? That is a mistake for sure. Anyways there's plenty of great prog metal on this to enjoy.

So if you love that great melodic metal of yore' then buy this one. The sound is good on the discs too. Since this is among the earlier and most inspired offerings from a Ritchie Blackmore-lead Rainbow it has gotten mostly only the airplay of the day it was released, as were all of the albums featuring Ronnie James Dio as their vocalist.

As a pioneer in classically-based Metal it appealed primarily to musicians that understood they were hearing true innovation and a concert of very new ideas blended with a song format that avoided cliche. Of these few early albums before Blackmore sold out and began pumping out the commercial pablum, this is a gem among gems. Since there was little like it on the airwaves when it was released it didn't neatly fit the format of most radio entities in a day when they were relied upon for introduction to new music.

I would easily recommend this to anyone that wants exciting, well composed, energetic Metal not overrun buy brown, high-gain distortion. This album is a must for guitarists and musicians in general. This album is great.

No bones about it, but the line of Deluxe Edition re-masters from Rainbow are less-than desirable. The demos and live out-takes aren't really that special and some of the sound quality on them is a bit daft. Still, the original album is a classic. Having already been in the live set for a couple of years, "Kill The King" is an absolute stunner of a track and years ahead of it's time in terms of speed and precision.

Also of note, the dynamic "Gates of Babylon" is an impressive display of keyboard and guitar pyrotechnics coupled with the explosive vocals of the late Ronnie James Dio and the thunderous drumming of the late Cozy Powell. Closing out the album is a haunting ballad in the form of "Rainbow Eyes". Showcasing the softer side of Dio's voice accompanied by the Bavarian String Ensemble, this is a remarkably beautiful work that highlights the aspects of this band that most people don't pay attention to.

There is no doubt about it. In addition, the album itself is still a milestone in the history of hard rock and heavy metal. In a word, the album is a masterpiece. Ronnie James Dio did his best as a frontman and a vocalist. His incredible and great vocal skills were something special. But the guitarists, the drummer and musicians who were playing additional instruments on certain songs, for example flute "Rainbow Eyes" , keyboards "Gates of Babylon" also tried their best to launch such a marvellous piece of music.

Regarding the content of the music, it is hard to point to any poor song on this album. In my view there are only two songs which are slightly less energetic and more monotonous as compared with the rest.

I do like their next one better though. As always the deluxe versions are better. Why didn't someone do this back in the 80" or 90's? That is a mistake for sure.

Anyways there's plenty of great prog metal on this to enjoy. So if you love that great melodic metal of yore' then buy this one. The sound is good on the discs too. Top critical review. Reviewed in the United States on June 22, I love Blackmore's Rainbow. To me "Rainbow" is one of the best rock bands ever. I hoped to enjoy this album on remastered CD, but I was wrong.

Bass is completely missing in all songs of this CD. Even after I turned on the sub it still did not produce decent low end. I have 3 more Rainbow CDs and one vinyl record. They all play just fine, but this one is really bad. I am not sure how it was remastered. I have all songs from this album downloaded in mp3 format and they all play much better then this CD.

As a result, "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll" would be the final album made with the two musicians in the Rainbow lineup, and it's a perfect swan song for said lineup. Every Rainbow album after this would either be mediocre ("Straight Through the Eyes") or just downright bad ("Down to Earth").

  6. The next song ("Kill the King"), is also wonderful. Any fan of hard rock or even heavy metal follower would not be disappointed with it. The last track ("Rainbow Eyes") is purely sentimental and inspiring ballad. To sum up, "Long Live Rock & Roll" is an outstanding album. It still rocks after all these years/5().
