According to a posting on the unofficial BLACK SABBATH web site Black-Sabbath.com, the four Ronnie James Dio-era BLACK SABBATH albums that made up the recently released "The Rules of Hell" box set are being re-released individually. "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" box set sold around 2,650 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"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.

Fan-filmed video footage of HEAVEN AND HELL performing the song "Neon Knights" on August 31, 2008 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California (where the band was appearing as part of the Metal Masters Tour with JUDAS PRIEST, MOTÖRHEAD, and TESTAMENT) can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "rockynhome").
