As previously reported, the Ronnie James Dio tribute This Is Your Life will be released on April 1st and today you get to hear Metallica's contribution to the release. The nine-minute medley of four tracks titled "Ronnie Rising" and performed by Metallica features riffs from "A Light In The Black," "Tarot Woman," "Stargazer," and "Kill The King." All songs were originally written and recorded by Rainbow. Enjoy it here!

Do you think Metallica did a good job?




This tribute will feature newly recorded tracks from Anthrax, Halestorm, Rob Halford, Metallica, Motörhead, Scorpions, Corey Taylor, and Tenacious D, among others, to benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. Pre-order the release here.

Unsurprisingly, it sounds like Metallica covering Rainbow. Why not listen to Rising instead?

As someone said when Metallica did Garage album: "Others invented those songs, but Metallica played them". Same here and by the way, really awesome production. Hope to hear something like this on their new album.

This is really good. Even Lars sounds good...

Surprisingly... not bad...

I actually think that this style suits Metallica better than Metallica's style does. Weird...

It would be surprising if it sounded like anything else.

Best thing they've recorded in years. Hopefully they can channel some of this energy and passion into their own new music

Het's still got it.

Good stuff.


For those that they say it's the best they've sounded in years, sound and style wise it's not too different from Death Magnetic and Beyond Magnetic.

The Kill The King section is epic. The guitars sound the best I have ever heard Metallica record.

Shame no vocals for A Light In The Black, seems a bit tacked on.

This might be ok if not for that production. I swear I've heard pop songs that are less shinily produced than that. No soul whatsoever to some good songs.

I think the order of the medley is a bit odd but other than that I really enjoyed it. As already mentioned, hopefully Metallica can channel some of that energy into their new material.

Not holding my breath though.

Please don't, the metal community can't keep up with all the dead bodies...

Brutal death metal bands are enjoying the free autopsy opportunities though.

Yes, it would be.

I like the instruments (even if they are a little too polished), the vocals absolutely butchered it for me though..
qlacs - 27.03.2014 at 01:53  
Yeah, nowhere close to the shine of the original songs but from Metallica this is still the most listenable thing in many many years. The Stargazer-Kill The King part was damn good. Too bad none of this greatness was written by them...
