Classic Dio Albums Remastered For New Box Set


(hennemusic) Ronnie James Dio's classic era Dio albums have been remastered and will be released as a new 6-disc box set, "A Decade Of Dio: 1983-1993", on July 22, followed by a vinyl edition this fall.

The project compiles newly-remastered versions of the group's first six studio albums, including 1983's "Holy Diver", 1984's "The Last In Line", 1985's "Sacred Heart", 1987's "Dream Evil", 1990's "Lock Up The Wolves" and 1993's "Strange Highways." It can preordered here.

Issued first on CD, a vinyl edition of the box will available on October 4 and will include a bonus 7" single. On the first side is the 1983 version of "Evil Eyes," which was originally released as the b-side on the "Holy Diver" single. In addition, this version is different from the one featured on the 1984 album "The Last In Line." The flip side features "Time To Burn," which was the only studio track featured on the 1986 live release "Intermission." The vinyl edition is available for preorder here.

After two albums with Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio left in 1982 and formed Dio with fellow Sabbath band mate Vinny Appice on drums. The group's platinum-selling debut "Holy Diver" arrived in 1983 and is now revered as a heavy metal masterpiece, including two songs that would become rock signatures: the title track and the epic "Rainbow In The Dark."
