This past Friday, September 18th, saw the worldwide release of the Metal Allegiance album. All I can say is after listening to it, this album is absolute excellence. If you buy the deluxe edition, you get a DVD featuring a 45-minute behind-the-scenes documentary showing the making of the album, and also a bonus track, which is a cover of the Dio classic "We Rock", which the video has been released for. Core members Alex Skolnick, David Ellefson and Mike Portnoy along with guest lead guitarists Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Phil Demmel (Machine Head) and Gary Holt (Exodus/Slayer) and guest vocalists: Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), Chris Jericho (Fozzy), Tim "Ripper" Owens (Charred Walls Of The Damned), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Chuck Billy (Testament) and Steve "Zetro" Souza (Exodus) all pay tribute to Ronnie James Dio with this incredible cover. Other bands, musicians and personalities that appear in the video include Twisted Sister, Phil Anselmo, Eddie Trunk, Jamey Jasta, Mark Menghi, Randy Blythe, Queensryche and Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal.
