Black Label Society bandleader Zakk Wylde wields his guitar like a Viking weapon, bashing out thick riffage and squeezing out expressive squeals as if the glory of his Berserker​ ​brotherhood​ ​depends​ ​upon​ ​every​ ​single​ ​note,​ ​which​ ​of​ ​course,​ ​it​ ​does.
Charismatic beast and consummate showman, Wylde puts his massive heart and earnest soul on display with unbridled, unchained, animalistic passion in Black Label Society, whether it’s a crushingly heavy blues-rock barnstormer or a piano-driven ode to a fallen brother. Each Black Label Society album is another opportunity to top the one before it, but like AC/DC or The Rolling Stones, BLS isn’t here​ ​to​ ​reinvent​ ​the​ ​wheel.​ ​If​ ​it​ ​ain’t​ ​broke,​ ​don’t​ ​fix​ ​it.​ ​It’s​ ​a​ ​brand​ ​we​ ​can​ ​trust.

Mighty missives like “Damn the Flood,” “In This River,” “Stillborn,” “My Dying Time,” “Queen of Sorrow,” and “Blood is Thicker Than Water” have amassed millions of downloads and streams. They are the soundtracks to sweat soaked revelry, jubilant evenings​ ​that​ ​descend​ ​into​ ​bewildering​ ​mornings,​ ​and​ ​adrenaline​ ​fueled​ ​sports.

Grimmest Hits​, the band’s tenth full-length studio album and follow-up to Billboard Top 5 entries ​Catacombs of the Black Vatican (2014) and ​Order of the Black (2010), Black Label Society submit new anthems like radio single “Room of Nightmares,” the bluesy “Seasons of Falter,” and Southern-fried “The Day That Heaven Had Gone Away”​ ​to​ ​the​ ​BLS​ ​faithful;​ ​12​ ​unstoppable​ ​tracks​ ​to​ ​add​ ​to​ ​that​ ​lifestyle​ ​soundtrack.

While members of esteemed rock and metal institutions like Alice In Chains, Metallica, Type O Negative, Clutch, Danzig, and Megadeth have passed through the band’s ranks, Black Label Society has consistently been defined by Wylde’s unmistakable voice and signature guitar sound and the steady rumble of bassist John DeServio. BLS is rounded out, in the studio and onstage, by guitarist Dario Lorina​ ​(since​ ​2013)​ ​and​ ​powerhouse​ ​drummer​ ​Jeff​ ​Fabb​ ​(since​ ​2012).

This is as much a band as it is a symbol of strength, honor, commitment, and diehard “society,” as evidenced by the legions of supporters who proudly donned the Black Label​ ​Society​ ​colors​ ​years​ ​before​ ​motorcycle​ ​culture​ ​was​ ​back​ ​in​ ​fashion.
Black Label Society are vigilant keepers of the hard rock n’ roll flame, protecting its sonic characteristics and vibe while engaging in reverent study of its chief architects. Given that Wylde’s kids’ are named Hayley Rae, Jesse John Michael (named after his Godfather, John Michael “Ozzy” Osbourne), Hendrix Halen, and Sabbath​ ​Page,​ ​it’s​ ​clear​ ​that​ ​he​ ​takes​ ​his​ ​study​ ​of​ ​rock​ ​n’​ ​roll’s​ ​greats​ ​very​ ​seriously.

To many, Wylde is synonymous with pinch harmonics as much as Chuck Berry dreamt up the duck walk. Zakk’s signature Les Paul Bullseye guitar hangs in the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. His infamous leather bellbottoms hang in the Grammy Museum. His handprints are on Hollywood’s Rock Walk of Fame. He’s performed the National Anthem at major sporting events. He wrote the 2013 Major League Baseball theme for ESPN. He even momentarily joined Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff in Guns​ ​N’​ ​Roses.​ ​He​ ​is​ ​a​ ​​playable​ ​character​​ ​in​ ​the​ ​​Guitar​ ​Hero​​ ​games.

A lifelong disciple of Black Sabbath and the longest serving guitar-shredder for the Ozzman himself, Wylde co-wrote modern Ozzy Osbourne classics like “No More Tears,” “Mama I’m Coming Home,” “Road to Nowhere,” and “Miracle Man.” Together with Ozzy bassist Blasko and drummer Joey Castillo (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age), Wylde​ ​pays​ ​faithful​ ​tribute​ ​to​ ​the​ ​forefathers​ ​of​ ​metal​ ​as​ ​frontman​ ​for​ ​Zakk​ ​Sabbath.

Before he graced the cover of every meaningful guitar magazine on the planet, Zakk Wylde was a kid in New Jersey who picked up his instrument before he’d even hit high school. He was still a teenager when he got his demo tape into Ozzy’s hands. Together with the man he affectionately calls “the Boss” (and whose wife and manager, Sharon, he calls “Mom”), Wylde was part of the biggest selling album of the legendary Black Sabbath singer’s solo career, ​No More Tears​, as well as the double-platinum ​Ozzmosis​, and earned a Grammy for the live recording of “I Don’t Want​ ​to​ ​Change​ ​the​ ​World.”

One part invading horde and all parts traveling carnival party, Black Label Society traverses the world powered by caffeine and cacophony. BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join​ ​in​ ​and​ ​participate​ ​in​ ​their​ ​brotherhood​ ​and​ ​sisterhood​ ​of​ ​hard​ ​rock​ ​and​ ​vigor.

Now ten studio albums deep, with solo records, Ozzy shows, and Zakk Sabbath tours all​ ​kicking​ ​ass​ ​simultaneously,​ ​Black​ ​Label​ ​Society​ ​rides​ ​ever​ ​forward,​ ​fist​ ​held​ ​high.

Zakk Wylde (born on January 14, 1967 in Bayonne, New Jersey) is an American musician, who is best known for his roles as a guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and founder of heavy metal band Black Label Society. He was lead guitarist and vocalist in Pride & Glory, who released one self-titled album in 1994 before disbanding. As a solo artist he released Book of Shadows in 1996.

Corrosion Of Conformity

"Animosity" went on to become one of the first metal/punk crossover records. COC sound evolved further in the 1990s, journeying into a more stoner and southern inspired metal direction. COC are still actively touring and recording today.
