ZAKK WYLDE Names The Albums He Would Choose To Hear Again For The First Time; Includes Titles From LED ZEPPELIN, BLACK SABBATH, ELTON JOHN And More (Video)

Black Label Society will release their eleventh studio album, Doom Crew Inc., this Friday, November 26, via MNRK Heavy. In this new video, Zakk Wylde reveals which albums he would choose to hear all over again for the first time.

Available digitally, on CD, vinyl and in a deluxe edition, you can pre-order Doom Crew Inc. here. An autographed CD digi-pack is available here.

Spend Thanksgiving with the band and crew for a listening livestream event following a fan Q&A. Join the party by pre-saving and/or pre-adding the album here. The feast starts at 4 PM, ET on Thursday.

The 12-track album is both a tribute to the band’s “first to bleed, last to leave'' road crew, and a salute to the legion whose support, stretching back to 1998, rivals that of the KISS Army. The stomping, heavy, bluesy, recklessly unhinged hard-rock-metal quartet are part invading horde, and part traveling carnival - summoning caffeine-fueled cacophony on records and the stage.

The songs are odes to celebration and mourning, the soundtracks to jubilant evenings and bewildering days recorded in Zakk’s home studio, the Black Vatican. On this album, Zakk trades solos and twin-guitar parts with Dario Lorina, backed by the rumble of longtime bassist, John “J.D.” DeServio, and powerhouse drummer, Jeff Fabb.

“We incorporated Father Dario even more into the solos, doubling with me and being more involved in that regard,” said frontman, Zakk Wylde. “It really, truly is a two-guitar album, more so than ever. A twin guitar band, whether it’s the Allman Brothers or Judas Priest, with harmony lines, unison lines, and trading off solos. It stemmed from the live shows, where we’d both go into the crowd and extend songs like ‘Fire It Up.’”
