One of the highlights of the new Ronnie James Dio tribute album, This Is Your Life, is Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor's version of "Rainbow In The Dark," from the 1983 Dio album Holy Diver. Taylor recorded the song with some friends and told Pulse of Radio what he wanted to accomplish: "I mean, I knew I wasn't going to be able to touch Dio. I just wanted to kind of come close. It was just about having fun and getting the guys all together and being like, 'Okay, we'll do this and we'll do that,' you know, and just really try to get the spirit of the song out, you know. And it came together really, really quick."
This Is Your Life came out on April 1st and also features tracks from Metallica, Halestorm, Scorpions, Motorhead, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax and more.
- Proceeds from sales of the album will go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund.
