The long-rumoured Ronnie James Dio tribute album has finally been announced, and it’s a cracker.

Featuring the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, Corey Taylor, Halestorm, Killswitch Engage and many more, it features a selection of covers of some of Ronnie’s most iconic tracks – as well as some absolutely ludicrous (and amazing) artwork:

Metal as fuck, right?! The album will raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (diocancerfund.org) and was organised and produced by his wife, Wendy.

Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life lands on April 1 via Rhino. Check out the full list of covers below:
