Metallica Ronnie Rising Medley (A Tribute to Ronnie James Dio)

Metallica have unveiled their contribution to the upcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album ‘This is Your Life‘ — and it’s a stunning, nine-minute long medley featuring four songs from the singer’s time in Rainbow. Entitled ‘Ronnie Rising Medley,’ the track features three songs from Rainbow’s 1976 album ‘Rising’ (‘A Light in the Black,’ ‘Stargazer’ and ‘Tarot Woman’) as well as ‘Kill the King’ from the same year’s ‘Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll.’ Metallica issued a similar four-song medley tribute to Mercyful Fate back in 1998 for their ‘Garage, Inc.’ album. ‘This Is Your Life,’ which arrives on April 1, also features Dio, Black Sabbath and Rainbow-era Ronnie James Dio tracks performed by Motorhead, Anthrax, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford and more.
