Lock Up the Wolves is the fifth studio album by the American heavy metal band Dio, released on May 15, 1990. It displayed a complete change of musician line-up over the previous Dream Evil album, including eighteen-year-old guitarist Rowan Robertson, and Simon Wright on drums who had played with AC/DC from 1983-89. The song "Evil on Queen Street" takes its title from a deli in Toronto which had a sandwich with that name—per Dio on Much Music in 1990.[citation needed]

Guitarist Rowan Robertson states that two more songs were written and demoed for the album but left off at the decision of Wendy Dio: "‘Hell wouldn’t take her’ and ‘The River Between Us".[3]
