Everyone and Their Mother to Appear on New Dio Tribute Album

Dio - This is Your Life

Rhino has announced the impending release of This is Your Life, a new Dio tribute album which will benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund… and they’re not dicking around: of course not LITERALLY every metal star currently walking and breathing is on this thing… but the line-up is still pretty ridiculous. Check out the tracklist — and keep in mind that save for three of the cuts (the Dio one obviously, plus the Killswitch Engage “Holy Diver” cover and Doro’s version of “Egypt (The Chains Are On)”), these are all previously-unreleased recordings:

  1. “Neon Knights” – Anthrax
  2. “The Last In Line” – Tenacious D
  3. “The Mob Rules” – Adrenaline Mob
  4. “Rainbow In The Dark” – Corey Taylor, Roy Mayorga, Satchel, Christian Martucci, Jason Christopher
  5. “Straight Through The Heart” – Halestorm
  6. “Starstruck” – Motörhead with Biff Byford
  7. “The Temple Of The King” – Scorpions
  8. “Egypt (The Chains Are On)” – Doro
  9. “Holy Diver” – Killswitch Engage
  10. “Catch The Rainbow” – Glenn Hughes, Simon Wright, Craig Goldy, Rudy Sarzo, Scott Warren
  11. “I” – Oni Logan, Jimmy Bain, Rowan Robertson, Brian Tichy
  12. “Man On The Silver Mountain” – Rob Halford, Vinny Appice, Doug Aldrich, Jeff Pilson, Scott Warren
  13. “Ronnie Rising Medley (Featuring A Light In The Black, Tarot Woman, Stargazer, Kill The King)” – Metallica
  14. “This Is Your Life” – Dio

Jeezy creezy!

I can’t imagine all of these covers will be good — some of these artists will no doubt fail to put their own spin on the material, and some of them are just outright bad (I’m looking at you, Halestorm) — but hopefully we get some gems on here. I’m particularly curious to hear what it sounds like when Corey Taylor sings “Rainbow in the Dark,” which doesn’t seem like an obvious choice for him.

This is Your Life comes out April 1.
