Dio - Strange Highways (1994)
The 6th studio album by American heavy metal band Dio. It's also their first album since Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice's reunion tour with Black Sabbath. First released in 1994 on Reprise Records.

After the short lived Dehumanizer reunion with Black Sabbath, Dio and Appice returned to Dio's solo group. Due to Dio's hard feelings toward Craig Goldy at the time, he hired Tracy Grijalva as his guitarist. In this, and the next album, Dio would take the sound of the Dehumanizer album and build on that, giving this album a very hard, modern feel.
