Black Label Society Recording Twelfth Studio Album

May 25, 2023

Black Label Society‘s Toronto Chapter just shared something on Facebook that should make you excited! Zakk Wylde is in studio working on the new album! It’s their twelve and is the follow up to November 2021’s “Doom Crew Inc.”.


To give you a glimpse into their songwriting process, check out some of an interview Wylde did with Morristown, New Jersey radio station 105.5 WDHA about a year and a half ago, “The way it always goes, it’s always the music first and then a melody. And then I’ve gotta find out something I wanna sing about. So then I’ll write the lyrics. That’s usually always the way it goes. And then, when it’s all done, then the solos go on it. The painting’s all done, and the solo is the frame that goes on the thing. So you can sit back and look at the whole thing. That’s the way we pretty much always do it… I would just have a cup of coffee and just start writing riffs. You always get inspired by — for me, it’s always Mount Riffmore, which is Cream, Mountain, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Deep Purple… If you’re not getting inspired by the riffs those guys have created, it’s just like… So I’ll just go fishing and just start writing till you get to something you like.”

Wylde started BLS in ’98 so he had something to do when not touring and recording with Ozzy Osbourne.

Since joining Ozzy’s band, Wylde has played on all of his albums except for 2020’s “Ordinary Man”.

Is Zakk Ozzy’s best guitarist all-time? Does he reach Randy Rhoads’ level?
