Metallic Assault: A Tribute to Metallica is a tribute album to thrash metal band Metallica. The album features Metallica covers played not by formal bands, but collaborations between musicians from several bands And Justice For All are featured. Robert Trujillo, who later joined Metallica in 2003 plays bass on two tracks.
For this landmark tribute, bands such as Metallica, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage and Motorhead, along with artists like Rob Halford, Corey Taylor and Glenn Hughes entered the studio to cover some of Ronnie's greatest works from Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio. Rounding out the album, Dio's original track 'This is Your Life' from the 'Angry Machines' album will act as the tribute record's final song. The 'Ronnie James Dio: This is Your Life' album will raise money for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
A new benefit album pays tribute to Ronnie James Dio with 13 interpretations of his music from Metallica, Motorhead, Scorpions, Anthrax and Judas Priest's Rob Halford, among others. This Is Your Life' concludes with the former Rainbow and Black Sabbath frontman's own moving rendition of the title track, originally found on 1996's 'Angry Machines. Produced by Dio's longtime manager and wife Wendy, the album will be issued on April 1, 2014 via Rhino.
tribute album This Is Your Life; and its version of the Sex Pistols’ "God Save the Queen" from 2000’s We Are Motörhead. Drummer Mikkey Dee is very proud of Under Cöver and thinks fans will enjoy it, especially because the album was meant to be. Speaking from his home in Sweden, he says, We usually released an album pretty much every other year. Under Cöver is a fitting tribute to one of the most iconic frontmen that ever played rock 'n' roll. Known as much for his consumption of illicit substances as he was for his upward-tilted microphone and gravelly singing voice, the bassist was the subject of the critically acclaimed 2010 documentary Lemmy: 49% Motherf ker.
Metallica have revealed that one of the tracks off their upcoming album is actually a tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. To Self-Destruct is actually a tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. As Rolling Stone reports, during a visit to SiriusXM‘s New York studios Metallica went so far as to say that without Lemmy, Metallica wouldn’t even exist. The band explained that he had a huge influence on them, and revealed the song Murder One, taken from their new album, uses many of Lemmy’s song titles in its lyrics. Motörhead had a lot to do with Metallica sitting here right now, frontman James Hetfield said. But just Lemmy as an entity, as kind of a father figure, he helped us a lot. He was unafraid.
