iTunes Editors’ Notes

With 2009’s The Blessed Hellride, Zakk Wylde upped the ante on his distinctive fusion of Southern blues, thrash, stoner rock, and nu-metal. It’s possible that the album’s renewed energy comes from an appearance from Ozzy Osbourne himself, who shows up on “Stillborn.” A visit from Wylde’s longtime mentor and collaborator may have prompted him to turn everything up a notch. Produced, written, and performed primarily by Wylde, the album has cohesion and ferocious motivation. His vocals, in particular, seem more intensified than on previous efforts, especially on “Doomsday Jesus,” “Funeral Bell," and “We Live No More.” While Wylde is best known for the slow-churning riffs exemplified by “Final Solution,” “Blackened Waters," and the punishing “Suffering Overdue,” he can also whip his band into a punk-like frenzy on “Stoned and Drunk” and “Destruction Overdrive.” As is his custom, Wylde ends the album with an irresistible curveball: “Dead Meadow” is an ominously dreamy track reminiscent of mid-career Pink Floyd.

Customer Reviews

Zakk's best work

Their best and most popluar work for a reason. It's got the single Stillborn with Ozzy doing backup vocals. The title track is a great song to play on the jukebox at your favorite bar. This album is really a must have for fans of BLS. It's like AC/DC's Back in Black, everyone should own it. No complaints about this album as each track delivers Zakk's personal brand of furious guittar riffs, and simplistic yet powerful lyrics. Top five for this album: 1) The Blessed Hellride 2) Blackened Waters 3) Stillborn 4) We Live No More 5) Funeral Bell

A Classic!!

All of the Black Label albums have great stuff on em but this one is the album that they really hit their stride on.A great metal classic all the way through.
