The Great Metal Standoff – Trivium vs Dio w/ RMITV’s 5 Foot Step

Trivium v Dio WEB

If Jason and Imran are gonna start podcasting again, they’re gonna get collaborating. Joined by one of the co-producers of RMITV production 5 Foot Step, Niall Allen, the trio pair Trivium’s – In The Court Of The Dragon, the most recent release from Trivium, and Dio – Master Of The Moon, the final Dio solo album. This makes for a rather unusual battle but asks an interesting question. Can Ronnie James Dio, the man synonymous with his fantasy themes in his music, in his final years, still compete with a more contemporary album in a similar style?

Niall has also come along to talk the fine details of 5 Foot Step, you can catch the show live on Twitch, Tuesday nights at
