Black Label Society | Grimmest Hits
It’s been a full three decades since the teenage Jeffrey Wielandt, best known as Zakk Wylde, was plucked from New Jersey as the young six-string stud who would succeed Jake E. Lee and continue Ozzy Osbourne’s streak of landing otherwordly guitar players. He had a banner 2017, having toured with Zakk Sabbath, rejoining Ozzy's band and playing on the Experience Hendrix tour. Now, he’s returned his focus to his leather-clad Black Label Society with Grimmest Hits, the band’s 10th studio album.
Throughout the years, Wylde has proudly and often declared his reverence for the guitar gods who helped shape and subsequently reshape heavy music since the late ‘60s, anointing them all with religious prefixes like "Father Tony Iommi," "Saint Randy Rhoads," "Pontiff Jimmy Page" and so on. He’s constantly talking about his musical “soup"; the "ingredients" are the aforementioned legends, among many others. Grimmest Hits draws heavily from that soup, as Black Label Society takes cues from their idols, unabashedly riding mammoth Iommian, metal/blues riffs across 12 dense songs that make up one of the strongest albums in the collective's 20-year discography”.
