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.
Black Label Society had a hard-rock hit with 2011’s The Song Remains Not the Same, an album that featured acoustic versions of songs from the group’s Order of the Black record as well as covers like Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Invigorated by that success, frontman Zakk Wylde will keep the theme alive when the group records a live DVD and album this winter. Titled Unblackened, and due for release in the spring, the project will see BLS swap out the Marshall stacks and electric Epiphone Graveyard Disciple guitars for an orchestra, piano and pedal steel. But Zakk assures us the songs will retain their patented bite.
