Halestorm: Dio fanatics

We’re debuting Halestorm‘s contribution to the upcoming, star-studded Ronnie James Dio tribute!

Lzzy and the guys have put together a sterling rendition of classic number Straight Through The Heart, originally recorded for seminal Dio debut Holy Diver, first released way back in 1983.

To hear Halestorm’s take on the track (seriously, the wail on that woman!), get stuck into the stream below:

Featuring the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, Corey Taylor, Halestorm, Killswitch Engage and many more, Ronnie James Dio – This Is Your Life features a selection of covers of some of Ronnie’s most iconic tracks – as well as some absolutely ludicrous (and amazing) artwork:

The album will raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (diocancerfund.org) and was organised and produced by his wife, Wendy.
