Limited Edition DELUXE CD & LP BOX SETS with the last 4 studio albums by DIO.

The CD set is housed in a sideloading box and includes the rare single 'Electra' (originally intended for Magica II).

The reissued studio albums by DIO from 1996-2004 were enthusiastically received worldwide, especially in the United States, Germany, and Spain, where all four albums achieved impressive chart positions and even surpassed the chart positions of the original releases.

Angry Machines (1996), Magica (2000), Killing the Dragon (2002), and Master of the Moon (2004) were released by BMG in newly remastered versions with rare and previously unreleased live and studio bonus tracks.

Of the four releases, only Killing the Dragon made it to number 199 on the charts in the United States during its original release. However, the reissues achieved higher positions in the US Top 200 Sales Chart: Magica at number 118, Killing the Dragon at number 125, Angry Machines at number 126, and Master of the Moon at number 127. In the US Catalog Sales Chart, the releases performed even better: Magica - #46, Killing the Dragon - #49, Angry Machines - #50, and Master of the Moon - #51.

In the German charts, all four albums landed in the Top 50, with all of them surpassing their original positions except for Killing the Dragon: Magica reached #32, the original release reached #40; Killing the Dragon reached #35, only five positions higher than the original release; Master of the Moon was originally at #62, the reissue reached 19 positions higher at #43; and Angry Machines, which was not originally on the charts, reached #44.
