Zakk Wylde has announced the next chapter in the Black Label Society story, Catacombs of the Black Vatican. The album, the first disc of all new material from the band since 2010’s Order of the Black, will be released April 8.
As we have reported, Black Label Society are gearing up to release a new album in the spring. Today, however, the band announced the official release date. Catacombs of the Black Vatican, their ninth album, will be out April 8.
As we reported exactly a month ago, Black Label Society recently parted ways with longtime guitarist Nick Catanese, aka "the Evil Twin." It turns out the band has replaced Catanese with Lizzy Borden guitarist Dario Lorina.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "Can't Control It," a new song by the Infinite Staircase. Brothers Jeff and Lenny Cerzosie called on a little help from their friends — including Sevendust's Clint Lowery and Morgan Rose, plus Black Label Society's John "JD" DeServio — to create No Amends, the Infinite Staircase's just-released EP.
“Okay, Zakk, it’s time!” As the morning sun begins to break over the Texas hills, Dimebag Darrell thrusts the keys to a waiting sports utility vehicle in Zakk Wylde’s enormous hand. All through the night, over countless shots of Blacktooth Grin -- the particularly potent and tasty mixture of Crown Royal and Coca Cola that flows like water at Dime’s Arlington-area compound -- the Pantera guitarist has been psyching up Ozzy Osbourne’s right-hand man for this very moment.
