Title: “Dehumanizer” (remaster)
Label: Rhino Entertainment
Release Date: 10/17/2008
Genre: Heavy Metal
In order to properly celebrate the reunion of the “Mark II” version of Black Sabbath, Rhino Entertainment recently released a four CD boxed set called “Rules Of Hell”. The set featured remastered editions of all the albums with singer Ronnie James Dio on them and I am speaking of “Heaven And Hell”, Mob Rules”, “Live Evil” & “Dehumanizer”. This was a great way to once again enjoy some truly killer Metal from a lineup that was at first met with a lot of hesitation. The albums were packaged in a beautiful slipcase box and each featured brand new liner notes from notable journalists – truly this served the needs of those who had been clamoring for all of these releases to finally receive the remastering treatment. Of course, there are many who only liked one or two of these albums and those listeners might not have had any interest in shelling out the necessary dollars for the package of four and would instead prefer to purchase the one or two that were their favorites of the bunch.
