    Here's a link to a Metallica interview about the tribute LP & you can stream the Medley Ronnie Rising - I love it - think it's one of the best covers Metallica has done & would love to see them play it live - http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...20140324Listen

      I agree Tom. Its the best music Metallica has released since The Mercyful Fate medley. Even the vocal (which have made me cringe for well over 20 years now) somehow work really well. Despite Scorpions beng on it, I may actually buy this.

        Well if they play a live concert it would be great for BS to play Heaven & Hell, would love to hear Ozzy sing it!

          Glad I'm not the only one to feel this way. It's actually one of the worst covers I've heard period on a mainstream level. Right up there with System of a Down's "Snowblind" that I thought was a joke parody cover when I first heard it. And I was really into SOAD at the time, but not so much shortly thereafter.

I would LOVE to have heard the original line-up cover a Dio (band) or Rainbow-era song. I just think it would be hella-interesting, and a way for Ozzy to "bury the hatchet" so to speak by giving his take on Ronnie's singing. Not that the two are comparable, it's apples and oranges. But I think it would be very interesting.
            We both know that'll never happen, that would mean Ozzy, Geezer and Tony would be acknowledging that there was post Ozzy Sabbath, something that no longer exists.

              I second this! I respect the fact that in both cases the bands took the songs to completely new directions and made them sound their own, but they are still among my list of worst covers ever...I like some of SOAD's music, but their cover of Snowblind is a travesty.
