“The draw of Unblackened is powerful” Crave Online

“The rockers show a softer side on this cover of Bill Withers‘ ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone,’ tapping into the singer’s emotional honesty with swooning violins, meandering guitars and Wylde’s bleeding, tortured vocals”  Rolling Stone

“Most know of BLS for their ball in a meat grinder, pounding Metal, Zakk has always been more than a one dimensional musician” Classic Rock Revisted

“The two audio discs of music are a must in any Black Label Society fanatic’s collection” LOUDWIRE

PRE ORDER ON ITUNES HERE

An “Unblackened” bundle is also available for pre-order. The first 200 per-orders via the eOne store will receive a CD booklet signed by Zakk! The poster will be shipped in a rolled cardboard tube.

Unblackened,” the new live DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Video from Black Label Society will be released on September 24, 2013 by Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Additionally, Zakk’s label home, eOne Music, will release the audio version of the“Unblackened” DVD under the same name. The double disc release will have six additional tracks not found on the DVD, including two acoustic versions of “Queen Of Sorrow” and “Won’t Find It Here,” and covers of Leon Russell’s “Song For You” and “Aint No Sunshine When She’s Gone” by Bill Withers.

Filmed and recorded earlier this year in high definition at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, “Unblackened” is Black Label Society presenting their songs in a whole new light, with greater use of acoustic instrumentation. Wylde plays both guitar and piano, with Nick Catanase on guitar, John DeServio on bass/vocals, Chad Szeliga on drums, Derek Sherinian on keyboards/piano, and Greg Locascio providing additional vocals.Since their early nineties inception, Black Label Society, formed and helmed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of hard rock. Their penchant for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation. Unblackened,” however, unveils another side of the band.

Their stripped-down approach highlights the subtler nuances of the songwriting, without losing any of the fire or intensity. Classic tracks like “Stillborn,” “The Blessed Hellride,” “In This River,” “Throwin’ It All Away,” “Losin’ Your Mind,” and many others are still punctuated by the stinging, searing solos that fans know and love, while showcasing the versatility of the band.

In addition to the concert, “Unblackened” is rich in bonus material. A new interview with Zakk, photo gallery, music video for “Losin’ Your Mind,” and a feature with Wylde visiting HM Prison Stocken in the U.K . are all included.

Zakk Wylde, who has been called one of the true guitar heroes of the past 20-plus years, served as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist for over 20 years in addition to his work with BLS. This collaboration led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling “No More Tears,”of which Wylde wrote all the music. Bestowed with such accolades as“Golden God” by Metal Hammer and the “Best Guitarist” Award fromRevolver Magazine, Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with. Black Label Society continues to enthrall fans around the globe, and “Unblackened” is another incredible piece in the band’s catalog.

BIO:

Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they’ve coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed would be proud of and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

With two full-length albums behind them – We Couldn’t Think of a Title and Sandwich – the band released their latest record, Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D, in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

ALLEGAEON Prepare for Tour; Launch Jackson Guitar Contest

Win The Welding Room host, Rik Johnson’s dream guitar (with an extra string)!

ALLEGAEON prepare for The End of the World tour; launch Jackson guitar giveaway contest

ALLEGAEON is the final stages of preparing for their US tour with Job for a Cowboy. In celebration of The End of the World TourALLEGAEON has partnered with Jackson® Guitars and Guitar World to giveaway a brand new 7-string Jackson Soloist SLATXMGQ3-7! Several runners-up will receive copies of Allegaeon’s new album, Formshifter. Enter to win on GuitarWorld.com –http://www.guitarworld.com – and check out the demo video for the Soloist model at jacksonguitars.com.

Earlier this year, ALLEGAEON released a DIY video for their song A Path Disclosed, which can be seen on youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKqUOiYoEAE. Additionally, guitarists Greg Burgess and Ryan Glisan can be seen in a guitar demonstration video for Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUdEpaILWOg.

You can hear the Formshifter tracks, Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst and Twelve on The Welding Room.

“Now this is metal worth getting excited about. Formshifter has thrown down a gauntlet to metal bands everywhere and dared them to do better” – Kerrang Magazine 

“But the members of Allegaeon are so monstrously talented—see the entwined guitar harmonics, machine-gun drumming, and even the occasional, not insufferably acoustic interlude on the group’s heavily NWOBHM-shaded second LP, Formshifter—that they dig their way out of the doldrums of mere proficiency.” – AVClub.com

“The huge walls of crushing low tuned chugging and burning shred passages are awesome, but ultimately it’s the band’s ability of being able to really put together catchy heavy tracks that sets them above the rest of the pack.” – About.com
