In what might be the most star-studded cover album ever, Metallica, Anthrax, Halestorm, Corey Taylor, and more will be featured on This Is Your Life, a tribute album to Dio/Black Sabbath/Rainbow singer Ronnie James Dio. The album will feature 13 tracks as well as Dio’s original “This Is Your Life”. The vast majority of the songs have never before been released, so this will be a really exciting album for fans of Dio and his work!
Ronnie James Dio passed away in 2010 after losing his battle with stomach cancer. While he was incredibly short the man had a voice that was unbelievably powerful and beyond iconic. He was proof to many that metal and amazing vocals were not mutually exclusive. His loss was a damn shame and he is still missed sorely.
This Is Your Life will be released April 1st via Rhino. Head below for the track list.
