Black Label Society

A new photo of Zakk Wylde in the studio working on the next BLACK LABEL SOCIETY album has been posted by BLS Toronto Chapter. The band’s upcoming twelfth studio LP will be a follow-up to Doom Crew Inc., which was released in November 2021 via MNRK Heavy (previously eOne Music).

Zakk and Dario Lorina exchanged solos and dual-guitar parts on Doom Crew Inc., supported by long-term bassist John “J.D.” DeServio and formidable drummer Jeff Fabb.

Wylde shared with the Morristown, New Jersey radio station 105.5 WDHA about BLACK LABEL SOCIETY writing process a year and a half ago, saying: “The way it always goes, it’s always the music first and then a melody. And then I’ve gotta find out something I wanna sing about. So then I’ll write the lyrics. That’s usually always the way it goes. And then, when it’s all done, then the solos go on it.

“The painting’s all done, and the solo is the frame that goes on the thing. So you can sit back and look at the whole thing. That’s the way we pretty much always do it… I would just have a cup of coffee and just start writing riffs. You always get inspired by — for me, it’s always Mount Riffmore, which is CREAMMOUNTAIN, [LEDZEPPELIN, [BLACKSABBATHDEEP PURPLE… If you’re not getting inspired by the riffs those guys have created, it’s just like… So I’ll just go fishing and just start writing till you get to something you like.”
