Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Finds Dio’s “Rainbow in the Dark”
On Monday, we got to hear Metallica’s contribution to the upcoming Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund benefit album, This is Your Life; now the album’s curators have released a cover of “Rainbow in the Dark” with vocals by Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), drums by Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour, ex-Soulfly), and guitarist Satchel (Steel Panther). And y’know what? It’s pretty sweet! I kinda wish they’d done more to put it their own spin on it… but they totally deserve credit for the way they’ve modernized the song without totally ruining it.

This is Your Life comes out April 1.
