(hennemusic) Expanded versions of the final four studio albums by Dio - led by Ronnie James Dio - will be released on February 21. Billed as "Dio: The Studio Album Collection - 1996-2004", the project will deliver remastered editions of 1996's "Angry Machines," 2000's "Magica", 2002's "Killing The Dragon" and 2004's "Master Of The Moon" complete with rare and never before released live and studio bonus tracks.

Long out of print on vinyl, the 180-gram black vinyl includes the original track listings and is available as a Limited Edition 1st run with and LP-sized Lenticular album art print; as a special bonus, the "Magica" 2LP also contains a 7" single featuring "Electra," the only known completed track from the planned "Magica 2" album.

The CD versions of each album have also been long out of print globally. These newly remastered deluxe versions are showcased in mediabook packaging along with a second disc featuring rare and unleased bonus material. In addition to rare studio tracks "Electra" (included on "Magica") and "Prisoner Of Paradise" (included on "Master Of The Moon"), each bonus disc includes a selection of both rare or never before released live tracks from the accompanying tour for each studio release. All bonus tracks are also available on the streaming/digital versions.

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