Heavy metal with a Southern groove. That was the concept when former Ozzy Osbourne-guitarist Zakk Wylde formed Black Label Society in 1998, and that’s how it still looks today. To date the massive – in both senses of the word – guitar-hero/frontman and cohorts have released eight studio albums, including such successes as “Mafia” (2005) and last year’s “Order of the Black”. As we all know, American and European metalheads have different preferences, but in this case both sides agree: Black Label Society is one of the finest American metal bands today. Even if Zakk himself has given up beer, he can still count on countless beerdrinkers to give a warm reception to him, his trusted associates Nick Catanese (guitar) and John DeServio (bass), and newly appointed drummer Johnny Kelly (ex-Type O Negative).
Did we mention that the band will play just before Ozzy Osbourne on june 11th?
