5.0 out of 5 stars A Multifaceted Album, Showcasing Zakk's Versatility. April 29, 2003
By Jon
Format:Audio CD
This album, is set to put Zakk on the charts.
Zakk Wylde, originally known as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist, has come into his own in the past 10 years, showing amazing musicianship, unrestrained dedication, and unbridled talent, in his post-Ozzy ventures. Starting with his Southern Rock influenced "Pride and Glory" album, through his piano-driven "Book of Shadows" album, and his more recent band "Black Label Society", Zakk has shown both physical and mental versatility, and inventiveness, playing every instrument on his albums, besides the drums, (including piano and banjo) and pushing the limit of guitar riffs, solo-work, and fearlessness. His intensity and dedication was further exemplified in the most recent Ozzfest tour, playing sets with both Ozzy Osbourne, and his band (Black Label Society). Keeping true metal alive, Zakk has retained a stubborn, and unchanging, yet admirable, no-nonsense, and above all, down to earth attitude throughout.
Specifically, on his new Album, "The Blessed Hellride", the listener gets to hear all sides of Zakk's musical talent, with such softer tracks as "Dead Meadow" or the Title Track"The Blessed Hellride", brutal, driving tracks, such as "Doomsday Jesus", downright catchy (don't call it radio friendly!) tracks like "Stillborn" (which features a special guest vocalist), and tracks that reflect his previous experience with Ozzy, such as "Destruction Overdrive". The only track that I would consider weak (only in comparison to the others), is "Doomsday Jesus"... however, every time I listen to it, it sounds better.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Berserkers and SDMF'ers can celebrate April 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I started listening to Zakk about 2 years ago, and I can't put his stuff down. Hes really gone through an evolution of sorts with Pride and Glory, Book of Shadows, etc. Black Label has become the ultimate answer to what people really wanna hear from musicians, not stuff thats designed to sell records.
The Blessed Hellride carries on the tradition, but in a whole new way. It is by far Zakk's most diverse album as far as styles go. He opens it up with Stoned and Drunk, a classic-style hardcore rock anthem, and by the end puts you out with the slow and creepy Dead Meadow (piano included).
Standout tracks include: Doomsday Jesus, a revisit to 1919 days, as well as Suffering Overdue, which displays Zakk's low-tune tradition. Blackened Waters is a slower, ballad-type song with a killer solo, while the title track is the only acoustic song (still extremely awesome).
In closing, if you want a CD that has ripping, intricate guitar work, get this CD. If you want deep, well-written songs, get it. If you like Skulls, Rotweillers, and Chains, Get out there and buy it.
BASICALLY, BUY IT!!!!! SDMF FOR LIFE

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Zakk a little too Solid July 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Zakk Wylde has spent the better part of his rock career trying to express in as many ways possible what a badass he is. And while this is the rock attitude in the extreme, the very things we all enjoy most in heavy metal, it gets tiring to hear Wylde sing, for the umpteenth time, how he's going to crush you with his war machine while he drinks booze and plays guitar.
This first eight songs on this ablum are exactly this, and while they are solid riffs with plenty of Zakk string-wrangling, they are entirely one-dimensional, despite what other reviewers may think. You all know the drill by now if you've been a metal fan through the last fifteen years; if it's not heavy, it's not metal. Right, but if heavy means the same riffs/lyrics over and over and over again, then you start to learn something about the fans of metal too. Incidentally, the only band to really accomplish this with total success is Slayer; how, I don't know.
The final three songs are the ones to really write home about. "Blackened Waters" shows Zakk finally dropping the whole frenetic pick-hand act, at least for a while, and trying to let some emotion in on the proceedings. I have one gripe, and that he didn't revisit the killer ascending-riff that begins the song. We hear it once and never again.
After that is "We Live No More" a blatant homage to Black Sabbath. This is the best song on the album, and quite possible the best song BLS ever put out. The riff is quintessential Iommi, simple, heavy, and timeless, but Zakk pulls it off with such naturalness you wonder if he wasn't meant to write this sort of riff more often. The guitar solo is a fusion between Iommi's style and Zakk's lithe fingering, something he should explore more of.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! March 15, 2005
By Sandman
Format:Audio CD
If love guitar driven, straight ahead Rock & Roll, look no further. This cd has what you crave in spades!!

Zakk continues to pump out great tunes that groove big time. This is less southern rock sounding than some of his past stuff, but I don't care, Zakk plays a mean guitar and writes great tunes and that's what it's all about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy shizzle lemon squizzle!! November 13, 2004
By sliggy
Format:Audio CD
What an outstanding CD.. no seriously.. what a completely outstanding incredible CD.. what a great.. band? artist?

whatever..

Ok so.. let's look at the good points of this CD.. an appearance from Ozzy Osbourne (who can sing so much better than what you'd expect watching The Osbournes) for starters.. then we've got a guitar player who writes riffs that are heavy as hell, yet still soothing.. great sense of melody while maintaing the agression. Yngwie Malmsteen.. eat your heart out.

So seriously.. what do we get when we get a singer who sounds like a mix between Ozzy Osbourne and the guy from Type O Negative.. a guest appearance from the Ozzman himself.. and a guitar player who writes the coolest riffs I've ever heard and always seems to include cool noises within them.. while performing malmsteen-like solos?

One hell of a CD.. and a new favourite band.
