By Danny Coleman “Catacombs of the Black Vatican,” the latest release from Black Label Society; their first new work since 2009’s The Order of the Black and their most recent two disc set Unblackened has been much anticipated. This, their ninth studio album, a thirteen track (11 and two bonus) effort is scheduled to invade store shelves on April 8, 2014 and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. “My Dying Time,” the disc’s new single, is available for immediate purchase as the band is readying to embark on a thirteen city tour across Canada sometime after their, by invite only, appearance at this week’s NAMM Conference in Anaheim, Ca. The tour dub of An Evening With Zakk Wylde will feature intimate versions of the band’s material as well as songs from Wylde’s popular solo album “Book of Shadows.” Although the band has undergone many personnel changes over the years, multi-award winning guitarist Wylde, the band’s founder and constant member since its inception, has proven time and again that he and the group are a force to reckon with. This self-professed graduate of Ozzy Osbourne University made recent appearances on VH-1’s That Metal Show and The Artie Lange Show. He continues his role as one of rock’s great players and will be making the rounds promoting the album’s upcoming release. Joining Ozzy as a nineteen year old prodigy he remained firmly entrenched there over the last twenty years. Wylde penned all of the music on Osbourne’s largest selling album No More Tears while maintaining his solo and Black Label Society projects as well. It is this experience coupled with his amazing talent and dedication to his craft that has allowed Wylde to remain a fixture among rock’s greatest axe men. This week’s release of the album artwork, the track list and the aforementioned new single along with their NAMM appearance, Black Label Society is ready to steamroll full speed ahead all the way to the release of “Catacombs of the Black Vatican.” In the meantime, anyone who chooses to pre-order through iTunes will receive an immediate gratification download of “My Dying Time.” Look for Black Label Society to emerge from the “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” with a vengeance and ready to rock!
