Life, Birth, Blue, Grass: The Bluegrass Tribute to Black Label Society
Release Date: 9/19/2006
Black Label Society isn’t a band. It is a way of life. Zakk Wylde and his musical cohorts simply provide the necessary soundtrack for the booze-fueled parties. Black Label Society songs are anthems of infuriation, determination, and retribution. Guitar god Zakk writes songs that mix tough-as-nails riffs with an undeniable southern-fried stomp. There are Beserkers worldwide and Black Label Society exists for them all.
Despite the metal machinery that surrounds Zakk Wylde, there is an earthy approach to his music. Zakk is no stranger to acoustic music that conjures up images of rural countrysides. The Bluegrass Tribute to Black Label Society replaces the insane Les Paul riffage with equally intense banjo fills and speedy mandolin licks. Some of the sweetest voices in bluegrass find the country soul of Black Label Society. Sit beneath the tree and enjoy this tribute.
