BMG will continue its reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalog with “The Studio Collection – Remastered”, covering the band’s sixteen-strong studio albums across their career to date.
Following on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s “Mastered For iTunes” project, “The Studio Collection – Remastered” will be released on the digipak CD format, with the track listing matching the original U.K. releases. The recordings are taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The albums will be released chronologically in batches of four, across a nine-month period superseding the previously available studio catalog and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms. As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases will also be optionally available in a specially artworked box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the November 16 batch, this will be “The Number Of The Beast”.
