Anthrax, Motorhead, Metallica and Corey Taylor are amongst the line up of artists set to feature on a forthcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album.
This Is Your Life will be released on 31st March and features cover versions of songs by Dio, who died in 2010 following a battle with cancer.
The album will raise money for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, and was produced by his wife and manager, Wendy. Other artists appearing on the LP include Scorpions, Rob Halford and Killswitch Engage. The album closes on a recording of Dio himself performing a piano-led version of the title track, which originally appeared on the 1996 album Angry Machines.
