"Heaven and Hell", "Mob Rules", "Live Evil" and "Dehumanizer" will be made available separately on October 17 via Rhino. These albums are also being re-released on vinyl.
Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice signed copies of "The Rules Of Hell" on August 2 at Vintage Vinyl in Ford, New Jersey. Check out photos at the Brooklyn Rocks music blog and photo journal.

"The Rules Of Hell" is a box set featuring all three of BLACK SABBATH's Dio-era studio releases ("Heaven And Hell", "Mob Rules", "Dehumanizer") and its double live collection ("Live Evil"), each recently remastered for the first time. "The Rules Of Hell" comes packaged in a deluxe slipcase with extensive liner notes featuring all new interviews with the band.
