Dio's Black Sabbath Readies Box Set; Heaven & Hell Plan Album, Tour

By |

The Ronnie James Dio-era of Black Sabbath will be memorialized in the upcoming boxed set The Rules of Hell, out July 22nd via Rhino. The five-disc set will see four of the Dio Sabbath albums — Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, Dehumanizer and the double-disc Live Evil — get the remastered treatment. The set will also include extensive liner notes and new interviews with the band. In addition to the set, Dio and Tony Iommi are currently recording a new album as Heaven & Hell, set for release in early 2009. In anticipation for that album, Dio & Iommi will tour with Judas Priest, Testament and Motorhead on the Metal Masters Tour this August.
