Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1998 – present)

Black Label Society is a band formed by former Ozzy Osbourne/Pride & Glory guitar player Zakk Wylde in Los Angeles, California in 1998. They have released ten albums to date, eight of which are studio albums. The band, aside from Wylde consists of bassist John “JD” Deservio, drummer Mike Froedge, and fellow guitarist Nick “The Evil Twin” Catanese.

The band is not to be confused with Zakk Wylde’s solo project (sometimes known as Book of Shadows after its only album) or with Pride & Glory, Wylde’s southern rock band.

History
In 1992, Ozzy retired after the No More Tears tour, which led Zakk to form his own solo band Pride & Glory, blending potent bluesy southern rock with heavy metal. In 1994 Ozzy decided to come out of retirement, and the numerous recording sessions for Ozzmosis took place. Around this time, Zakk was also offered the open guitar slot in Guns N’ Roses and had a hard time deciding whether to tour with Ozzy or join Guns N’ Roses. Neither project panned out. This gave Wylde the opportunity to record his own acoustic solo album, “Book of Shadows.” After limited commercial success with Book Of Shadows, in 1998, Zakk and drummer Phil Ondich formed Black Label Society and recorded their debut album “Sonic Brew.

    All I can say is ZAKK's BACK, maybe in quittin' boozin his primary focus has become the music (and obviously LIFTING lol) but man...this is probably my favorite thing he's done since The Blessed Hellride... album shows a lot of maturity (I know everyone hates that word) but makes me proud to have been named after him! Awesome album

    I'm excited for the new album! I remember being stoked when I heard Parade Of The Dead and later Crazy Horse before Order Of The Black came out, then that album finally came out and I thought it was the best album they had ever done up till that point.

    "It’s all going to be all completely the same as the last nine records, except just different song titles [laughs]" he says. Bring it on I say!
