Check out Metallica's tribute to Dio

RonnieJamesDio_ThisIsYourLife_WEBThe ‘Ronnie James Dio: This is Your Life’ tribute album will be available on April 1st with 100% of the proceeds from sales benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer fund though

Artists such as Anthrax, Metallica, Lzzy Hale, Killswitch Engage, Motorhead, Corey Taylor, Rob Halford and many more contributed.

Instead of choosing just one song Metallica choose to do  a medley of four.  “A light in the black” “Tarot Woman” “Stargazer” and “Kill the King”

And in typical lengthy Metallica fashion, below is their contribution called “Ronnie Rising.”



The ‘Ronnie James Dio: This is Your Life‘ tribute album is set for an April 1 release via Rhino, with an all-star gathering of legends uniting to pay respects for one of metal’s greatest vocalists. Along with Metallica, acts such as Anthax, Killswitch Engage, Motorhead, Rob Halford, Corey Taylor and many others have joined forces for ‘This is Your Life,’ and if their contributions are anything like Metallica’s, we’ll have an essential tribute album on our hands.
