Metal Hammer magazine conducted an interview with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY mainman Zakk Wylde at this year’s Download festival, which is taking place June 13-15 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s new studio album, “Catacombs Of The Black Vatican”, sold around 26,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band’s previous studio CD, “Order Of The Black”, opened with around 33,000 units to enter the chart at No. 4.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s 2006 album, “Shot to Hell”, registered a first-week tally of 32,000 to land at No. 21. This was less than the 45,000 copies shifted by BLS‘s “Mafia” (Artemis) back in March 2005 to debut at No. 15.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s “The Song Remains Not The Same” opened with around 12,000 copies to land at No. 41. Released on May 10, 2011 via Entertainment One Music, the offering featured unplugged versions of material from BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s “Order Of The Black” album as well as additional material recorded during the “Order Of The Black” sessions.
“Catacombs Of The Black Vatican” was released in Europe on April 7 via Mascot Label Group and one day later in North America through eOne Music.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY recently amicably parted ways with longtime guitarist Nick Catanese and replaced him with Dario Lorina (LIZZY BORDEN).
