2½ stars out of 4

Ya gotta love guys like Zakk Wylde. He sure keeps everybody guessing where he is coming from and who he really is. While he is espousing his beliefs in family and God, in the next gasp of air he is telling all of you society dwelling motherfuckers (see liner note thank you) to burn in hell with the rest of the pissin', pukin', and fightin' idiots. Listen to the words of the track "Berserkers," you will see what I mean. He is a lot like the crazed Ozzy that he used to play guitar for. Is it his alter ego coming forth in his blazing guitar notes that pushes him to spew this filth and anger? Who knows? Its only rock n' roll in the end anyway.

"Black Label Society" has released their most recent episode of death, gloom, and doom for all of you aspiring mass murderers and mosh pit disciples. All of the rhetoric aside, this is a real hell bent for leather kick ass CD. At times he actually sounds like Ozzy when sings, and other times he gives the patented death growl to suit his chunky and foreboding guitar riffs. I have no bone of contention with the way this man plays his guitar, his philosophy of life leaves a lot to be desired, and his attitude needs some tweaking, but it's all just an act any way right? Well, who knows anymore the difference between what's real and fabricated? Don't think to heavily on that subject, just get this CD and rock yourself into the abyss of metal and doom of Zakk Wylde and his own personal society of darkness and what it provides, if your into it that is. If you stop and think about it for a moment, aren't a lot of us like Zakk's music? We go to church on Sunday and cuss like a trooper all week long before Sunday rolls around again, uh huh. I pray to the almighty and still swear like I am in still the Navy some days. We all have two sides to our personalities, and the music is showing us the truth. Life is black and white, good and evil, a veritable two sided coin. It is what and who we are whether we want to admit it or not.

Just when he has got you convinced he is straight from Satan's lair he plays a beautiful acoustic rendition of "America The Beautiful" to close out the CD. Go figure. Just get the damned CD for old glory and listen to that track; you will want to enlist in the armed forces of the good old U.S.A. Just think about it, you will be able to go to some foreign land and pummel an entire country into submission and actually kill people you don't even know. Sounds like fun doesn't it? Nah, just get the CD and pretend like Zakk does.
