Zakk Wylde: Book Of Shadows II

Album Review

Black Label Society frontman gets intimate again

Nearly 20 years after the release of his solo debut, Book Of Shadows, Ozzy Osbourne’s flaxen-haired, bench-pressing ingénue returns with a second instalment of Southern rock balladry and misty-eyed, staring-wistfully-out-the-window-on-a-rainy-day regret.

Although Zakk has forged an iron-plated legacy as one of metal’s foremost shredders, the Black Label Society frontman has long indulged his inner Gregg Allman, not only on the original Book Of Shadows, but in his old Pride & Glory project, on his Unblackened tour and even on the last BLS release, Catacombs Of The Black Vatican, which included the instant Southern rock classic, Scars.
