Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life features covers of songs from the late singer's time in Rainbow, Black Sabbath and his own band. Metallica does a nine-minute track called "Ronnie Rising Medley," which combines four Rainbow songs. Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford teams with frequent Dio collaborators Vinny Appice, Doug Aldrich, Jeff Pilson, and Scott Warren for "The Man On The Silver Mountain." Halestorm tackles "Straight Through The Heart" and Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is backed by an all-star lineup for "Rainbow In The Dark."

Proceeds from the album will go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
