Zakk Wylde and the rest of his merry men in Black Label Society are in the middle of what they are calling the “Black Label Berzerkus” Tour and these gigs find both Clutch and Children Of Bodom offering up support for those Metal loving Chapter members everywhere. This exclusive MP3 downloadable “Greatest Hits” release celebrates the music of Zakk and BLS by giving you twenty six tracks that are sure to set your music player and computer on fire. The material all hails from the guitarist’s original Spitfire Records (now released by Eagle Records) catalog and does not touch upon his recently released “Order Of The Black” since that came out on E1 Entertainment. It’s alright though since these molten Metal MP3’s will surely send you off to purchase a copy of his new stuff so you are better equipped to enjoy one of the shows. The album does a good job of presenting a little bit of everything from Zakk’s catalog and managed to bring out many of my own favorites as well. We get the interesting acoustic version of “Stillborn” and of course the tribute to Dimebag Darrell “In This River” along with the get the crowd going “Fire It Up” and original version of “Stillborn” which remains my own main tune from the man. Those interested in hearing Zakk’s more Country fried style will enjoy “Spoke In The Wheel” while those that insist on a head smashing will lean more toward “Mother Mary”. This downloadable release is actually the perfect place for a new listener to start their own BLS journey and let them see if they are a band that they would like to follow going forward for a number of reasons.
