    Are you tired of all the nu-metal no talent 3-muted power chord playing bands that try to pass themselves off as "Metal"? If so then go forth to your nearest music store and pick up the new CD by Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society "The Blessed Hellride"
    I've had a promo copy for over 2 weeks and it has been pretty much all I have listened to.

    For anyone who doesn't know, Zakk Wylde has played Guitar and written most of the music for Ozzy Osbourne since 1988's "No Rest For The Wicked"
    Since forming BLS in 1998 Zakk has released 5 albums:

    Sonic Brew (1999)
    Stronger Than Death (2000)
    Alcohol Fueled Brewtality Live (2001)
    1919 Eternal (2002)
    The Blessed Hellride (2003)

    So do yourself a favour and go out and pick up a copy of The Blessed Hellride, I promise you will not be disappointed and that you will find yourself picking up his other discs soon after.

    I've heard very good things about this record on other forums but am not familiar with his musical stylings since he left Ozzy. What does his material sound like? Is it a take on the Ozzy stylings? Is it harder, more melodic, what?

    I just picked up "Boozed Broozed & Broken-Boned", the DVD concert from Detroit yesterday. It's a pretty decent DVD, but the production isn't up to the quality of the Metallica concert DVDs.

    The sound is in DTS, DD and Stereo. There is a neat 'lesson' extra that shows Zakk breaking down some moves on his guitar.

    The concert itself was pretty good. I guess the idea with the "Black Label Society" is that they constanly change out drummers and bass players?

    Robert Trujillo (from Metallica) was playing bass at this concert, but there is a clip from their concert in Tokyo where someone else is playing bass. Sorry, but I don't remember who was playing drums.

    Trevor,

    Thanks for the recommendation. It looks like your somewhat of a strong BLS follower with all your BLS logo in your sig, website etc.

    Or is it just from the promo you rec'd that your so gung ho?

    I'll give it a listen regardless.
