By Marcina Zaccaria ,

The Ronnie James Dio: This is Your Life tribute album is a new release from Rhino records.

According to the Associated Press, there is a nine-minute medley that includes “A Light in The Black” and adds “Tarot Woman,” “Stargazer,” and “Kill The King.” On the album, the Scorpions cover “The Temple of The King. Judas Priest’s Rob Halford sings on a “Man On the Silver Mountain.”

Metallica also contributed songs to the album. According to Rolling Stone, Lars Ulrich said, "It was fairly effortless to put this together, because it's something that we were all reared on. I don't recall sitting there in a band meeting or anything deciding what to play.”

Dio performed with Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and Heaven & Hell. Dio released singles as well as LPs. Albums by Dio include Intermission, Dream Evil, Angry Machines, Magica, Master of the Moon, and Holy Diver – Live.

Dio died on May 16, 2010. Proceeds from the album go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout About Cancer Fund.
