Dio’s Studio Album Collection: 1996-2004 Remastered Reissues Available Today

DIO‘s 1996-2004 studio albums – Angry Machines (1996), Magica (2000), Killing the Dragon (2002), and Master of the Moon (2004) – are available today in newly remastered versions, featuring rare and never before released live and studio bonus tracks via BMG.

The albums were remastered by longtime DIO collaborator Wyn Davis with updated artwork from frequent DIO art director Marc Sasso.

“BMG has done such and amazing job pairing the studio albums with the bonus live recordings,

AND the lenticular vinyl records look amazing,” says Niji Entertainment Group Inc. President and Owner Wendy Dio. “I am very proud to be working together with them.”

Long out of print on vinyl, the 180-gram black vinyl includes the original tracklistings and is available as a Limited Edition first run with an LP-sized Lenticular album art print. As a special bonus, the Magica 2-LP 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 media book packaging along with a second disc featuring rare and unreleased 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.
