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.
