“This is a special Thank You to the Canadian fans for making “Ain’t No Sunshine” top 20 – Top 20 people!” said Wylde.  “I love Canada!  They always welcome BLS and are so supportive.  To do a more intimate, stripped down show, especially in cities where you’re so embraced –  is just the ultimate.  You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times, rearrange it and suddenly its something totally fresh and new.  Acoustically, the songs are just as powerful and heartfelt.  Even transposing them and performing them on piano, they are no less raw and familiar.

Zakk also has a special message to his Canadian fans: “Thanks to the Canadian chapter of the almighty Black Label for the success of Unblackened and the single, “Ain’t No Sunshine!!!” I am looking forward to an special evening with our Canadian family.”

A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD LANDS SEPTEMBER 25

August 16th, 2012

BE PREPARED TO GET RE-MACHINED

Re-machined - A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD

Re-machined – A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD


Eagle Records is delighted to announce the release of Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head album on September 25 [MSRP $13.99 for CD, digital TBA].

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and of Machine Head in particular. Some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head.

Re-Machined features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the “supergroup” Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track “Smoke On The Water”, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on “When A Blind Man Cries”, a track recorded at the “Machine Head” sessions but originally released as the B-side to “Never Before”.

Iron Maiden’s “Space Truckin’” cover was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, “Initially we didn’t think we’d be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered ‘Space Truckin’ which we’d recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley’s remixing skills, we’re able to include it on Re-Machined

Initially released as a limited edition Classic Rock “fanpack” on September 3, this is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.

Eagle Rock Entertainment is the largest producer and distributor of music programming for DVD, Blu-Ray, TV, Audio and Digital Media in the world.

ZAKK WYLDE Says It “Would Be An Honour” To Play With A Reformed PANTERA

May 22nd, 2012
Bringing Metal To The Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide To World Tour Domination

Bringing Metal To The Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide To World Tour Domination

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY mainman Zakk Wylde (ex-OZZY OSBOURNE) spoke with Billboard recently about a number of topics including his new book, Bringing Metal To The Children: The Complete Berzerker’s Guide To World Tour Domination. Here are a few excerpts from the chat:

Billboard: What’s your number one rule when touring?

Wylde: “No crapping on the bus. You’d figure that would be rule number one for any band going out on the road. It really is amazing to this day when we’re out on the road how many people want to use the bathroom and we have to tell them that. We still have to put signs up.”

Billboard: What’s your advice about groupies?

Wylde: “People always ask me how I’ve remained faithful to my wife for 26 years. I go, ‘Well sexually I would keep it hot in the bedroom.’ Instead of having her dress up in garters and a bustier and stuff like that, I’ll have her dress up in a gorilla suit and I’ll punch out the holes for all the spots I need and that way not only do I feel like I’m conquering her, I’m also conquering wildlife…. Being out on the road is definitely a great summer trip for the kids.”

Billboard: Vinnie Paul said if Pantera reformed you’d be the man to replace Dimebag” Darrell Abbot (PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN).

Wylde: “I love all those guys. It would be an honor. How could I say no? I’d do my best to make them proud.

Hellfest – Clisson France

October 1st, 2011

 

 pub-web-hellfest-20111.jpg

Hellfest – Clisson France

17-18-19 June 2011

Hellfest arrives for its 5th edition. The French festival has been growing incredibly huge and very fast. This year it traditional location in the sport facilities of Clisson couldn’t take anymore of the mass of metalheads coming to this small part of France from all over the world.

This year’s crowd-moving, main acts where none less than Rob Zombie, Scorpions, Ozzy, and Judas Priest, with tons of other goodies in between. An excellent line-up as usual, as it’s part of the winning formula that gave success to the organizers of this event, nowadays already one of the biggest metal fests in the European summer.

The weather won’t be the most pleasant ever, but on the other hand it could have been way worse than just some strong wind and rain here and there, and the sun has been lighting the fields from time to time, still giving the impression to be in summer, after all. But as this festival is amazingly fun if you are among the beer-drinking hellraisers in the audience, you can somehow understand the “hell” part when you have to keep up with the insanely long queues to get into the photo pit, along with running all over the festival area from stage to stage, trying not to fall over some boozer laying on the ground. Oh well… running is good for your health!

JOHN DeSERVIO – Black Label Society, Cycle Of Pain

August 11th, 2011

1_aaz3515.jpg

JOHN De SERVIO

INTERVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

John DeServio is best known from his long career with Black Label Society. DeServio was the original bass player for Black Label starting from 1998 but he decided to quit with the band in 2000. The man returned into their ranks just five years later following the departure of James Lomenzo and has been a part of “the family” since then. DeServio also has his own band called Cycle of Pain whose debut album was released in 2009 and he’s also been working with such names as Vinnie Moore, Ritchie Kotzen and Derek Sherinian. We had the honor to sit down with the man himself prior to Black Label’s triumphant performance at Sweden Rock – here are the results of that interesting discussion… Read on!

SWEDENROCK 2011

August 1st, 2011

swedenrock2011.jpg

 

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal Rules.com team is already into it’s 11th year!  The  2011 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock in the line-up. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide and the ticket price had risen a little bit. ver these 11 years of coverage, it has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather once again showed positive and negative aspects like in 2010. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die!!!

ZAKK WYLDE – On Possibly Doing A PANTERA Reunion Show: “I’d Be Honored!”

May 28th, 2011

Texas radio disc jockey Angela Chase of 97.1 The Eagle recently cornered the bearded one of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY on the radio during her May 11 show, and she got the former OZZY axe man to say: “I’d be honored!”, if he’s indeed asked to be part of any kind of future one-off PANTERA reunion event that would essentially bring back the surviving members (Rex, Phillip, and Vinnie Paul) with Zakk Wylde as the guest guitarist.

Earlier this year a small army of devoted PANTERA fans began piling up on each other in honor of the late great rocking Texas metal band and to support the cause (obviously a sore subject to many, including Vinnie Paul himself), one by one on Facebook…
