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.
