iTunes Editors’ Notes

It’s no surprise that Zakk Wylde, one of Ozzy Osbourne’s finest guitarists, plays some of the most uncompromising hard rock in the business. He’s old-school and doesn’t bend to fashion. His vocals generate the glitzy angst of Axl Rose and many other hard-rock singers and his guitar solos sound like a man who has listened to everything from Black Sabbath to Iron Maiden. Order of the Black could have just as easily been released in the ‘80s, considering its devotion to the no-nonsense hard-rock attack. “War of Heaven” features machine-gun rhythms with new drummer Will Hunt settling in without a hitch. “Shallow Grave” slows things down for a little piano to sneak through. “Riders of the Damned” features an intensity rarely heard without tipping the rhythms into grindcore. “Overlord” builds off a Black Sabbath riff. “Time Waits for No One” is not the Rolling Stones tune, but a slow dance that further connects Wylde to Guns N’ Roses-era hard rock. The deluxe edition adds a 35-minute track-by-track exploration with Wylde and “The Last Goodbye” sits down with him at the piano.

Customer Reviews

BEST BLS ALBUM PERIOD.

After The Blessed Hellride fans have been waiting for this album from Zakk and Co. Order of the Black defines what metal heads want in music today, not this pop/rock kiddie metal being played all over the radio today. From the opening track of Crazy Horse you get a pedal to the metal force that doesnt let up. Godspeed Hellhound will go down as one of the greatest Black Label songs ever. I get to see BLS at next Thursday's Ozzfest and I cant wait to bleed the colors. Congrats Zakk for a putting out an album that will remind Ozzy on who the greatest guitar God on the planet is.

No booze, no Ozzy, and PURE ZAKK/BLS

Zakk's tone is thick and brutal as ever, the riffs are strong, so are the melodies, and there is plenty of variety on the album. Hard rock, acoustic, piano, and some of the best drop tuned heavy metal. Everything from Pride & Glory days to vintage No More Tears Zakk. The production is great, Zakk's voice is strong and the guitar is not over-produced, as the mixing sounds perfect (no instrument or frequency is favored or ignored). If you are a Zakk fan you are going to play this CD a lot. Quitting the booze and no more dropping BLS tours to run to Ozzy has definitely made Zakk's music focused on riffs, solos, and melodies. Sharon made a bad move dumping Zakk as this is Zakk's BEST BLS effort to date. SDMF - Bleed Black Label!

Totally worth the wait

This album has had a lot of anticipation coming from the BLS Nation and once again the boys delivered. This album has everything: crushing riffs, blazing solos and ballads. If you are Bleeding Black Label, then you will not be dissapointed one bit. The best band out there. †SDMF†

After falling out with mentor Ozzy Osbourne following the recording sessions for 1995's Ozzmosis, guitarist Zakk Wylde struck out on his own with his first solo album, Book of Shadows, in 1996. When it failed to score any mainstream success, the six-stringer took an extended break before resurfacing with a new album and band called Black Label Society in 1999, featuring Wylde on vocals, guitar, and bass and drummer Phil Ondich.
