DIO - Magica - Deluxe Edition - promo cover pic

DIO – As long time fans can attest, the quality of Dio’s studio albums never wavered throughout the group’s near 30-year career. Case in point, the fan favorite/concept album, “Magica”, which featured Ronnie James Dio’s one-of-a-kind vocals and the return of guitarist Craig Goldy. The album spawned such metal classics as “Fever Dreams,” “Turn to Stone”, “Lord of the Last Day” and has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide – largely on word of mouth alone. One small problem – the original 2000 CD version has been out of print for years, and has become increasingly hard to find. But to the delight of Dio fans worldwide, “Magica” will be getting a makeover – on Tuesday, June 25th, 2013 as Niji Entertainment Group will be issuing the 2 CD “Magica Deluxe Edition”.


A breakdown of what will be included on this two CD set is as follows:
