Says Mogel about the group: “Hey guys, a while back I mentioned that I was working on a Foreigner Tribute – well, after a lot of hard work, it’s finally ready for action ! I give you Double Vision – The Ultimate Foreigner Experience! There are very few Foreigner tributes in the US and virtually none active in the NYC area. So the band will be booking shows this coming year locally as well as nationally. Check out a clip of our promo video below and let me know what you think!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only seen some YouTube.com videos of ZS and those show that the act is a tight effort all around. I expected as much since Zakk played with Ozzy for so long and is well versed in the legendary material. I’m glad that a show at our own regional Gramercy Theatre will be happening since I’d like to catch this for sure. What do you readers think of this brief outing? Are you big fans of Zakk and his Sabbath renditions or will you forever pine that the legendary band has moved into a well-deserved retirement. Let me know in the comments section below. Oh yeah and fans of the Fast Food Metal variety might want to catch “Mac Sabbath” who will be playing the region in March if memory serves me correctly.
