Calling all vinyl collectors and Dio fans. New Dio albums to be reissued with bonus live material.

Niji Entertainment Group have partnered with BMG to reissue four classic records in 2020, with each set bolstered by rare and never-before-released live material and select bonus tracks.

Longtime Dio collaborator Wyn Davis was brought in to remaster the four albums — 1996’s Angry Machines, 2000’s Magica, 2002’s Killing the Dragon and 2004’s Master of the Moon. In addition, there will be newly updated artwork from frequent Dio designer Marc Sasso.

The collections will be available in vinyl and CD formats, and you can check out the track listing for each collection below. In addition, each of the four albums now has a preview track selected from the live portions. Get a listen to “Man on the Silver Mountain,” “Lord of the Last Day,” “Holy Diver” and “Heaven and Hell” all performed live in concert below as well. All bonus tracks will also be available on streaming and digital services as well.

Wendy Dio says, “I am very excited to be working with BMG, a label that still has a passion for rock music. They will be making the complete DIO catalogue available again with some interesting surprises.”

Four Dio Albums to Be Reissued With Bonus Live Material

The Battle of Heaven and Hell, Where the Mob Rules, and the Dehumanizer is the Devil You Know

The Neon Knights and the Children of the Sea met Lady Evil in the battle of Heaven and Hell. Or so they thought. They met at the Wishing Well, there to see who would Die Young and who would Walk Away. Win or lose, all combatants knew that in battle, Lonely Is the Word.

And the two sides did Turn up the Night. Voodoo flourished even in the very Sign of the Southern Cross, neither side knowing that E5150 was the code of their demise. First the Mob Rules, then the embittered County Girl retaliates as souls are Slipping Away, Falling off the Edge of the World Over and Over.

As the battle raged, the Computer God tallied the lost, for After All (The Dead) alone continue beyond the computer-generated TV Crimes, to send Letters from Earth to the Master of Insanity, hoping he will use his Time Machine to erase the Sins of the Father before it is Too Late, before each I is Buried Alive.

And The Devil Cried as the Shadow of the Wind shrieked against the Ear in the Wall.

 

Ultimately, Atom and Evil unleashed Fear once kept inside the Bible Black, to Double the Pain beyond the ministrations of even a Rock and Roll Angel. The Turn of the Screw proved so painful that it led to even the most sane and compassionate toward Eating the Cannibals, to Follow the Tears to Neverwhere, losing the last vestige of hope for Breaking into Heaven.
