Think of Zakk Wylde as a great pastry chef. An extremely gifted and experienced artist who doesn't take his craft lightly (and, after trying just one sampling of his cooking, you realize that you shouldn't take it lightly, either.)

Zakk does what all greats do: draws inspiration from past greats. After just one sampling of his work, the customer should be able to tell that Zakk draws influence (especially vocally) from Ozzy Osbourne and the late Layne Staley of Alice in Chains fame. In fact, one of the things that may be holding Black Label Society back is that Zakk might draw too heavily from his pot of influences. His riffs have always been reminiscent of Black Sabbath (since, in case you didn't know, he also does the shredding for Ozzy Osbourne's band), but when he starts sounding like Ozzy behind the mic, things start to sound eerily similar.

Zakk may not be famous for mastering every genre of his art form, but he is world-renowned for one recipe: Southern-tinged, alcohol laden metal that's as heavy as a seven-layer torte. What does such a recipe call for? For starters, you need the best guitarist in the business who can lay down some monstrous solos and churn out many doom-y, sludgy riffs. Once you have that, you'll need some lyrics like: "Crawl through the things that eat your flesh." Put these lyrics down, then lather them, thickly, with a deep, gruff, alchohol soaked voice. To make sure you did this right, check to see that there are only one or two rays of visible light shining through to the bottom of your product. Finally, garnish it with some catchy, store-bought drumming and enjoy.

The final product should be a heavy, semi-sweet dessert that not everyone will enjoy equally. Aside from a few moments that are super sweet (i.e.

Another great CD from BLS. Zakk Wylde pushes his voice further than he has to date on this offering. When he jumps up an octave from his southern rock growl, he sounds like a mix between Ozzy and Axl Rose (Don't let that scare you away though.) Zakk sure is prolific, a great CD a year is a heck of an average!

I must begin this review by saying that I wasn't always a fan of Zakk's. In fact, before I heard "No Rest For The Wicked," I talked a lot of sh-t about Mr. Wylde, saying he was nothing but a Randy Rhoads clone and so forth. Boy was I ever wrong after hearing, "No Rest For The Wicked"! Then a friend of mine let me borrow his singer/songwriter-based solo album "Book of Shadows," which is one of the most melodically pleasing singer-songwriter albums of the past 10 years with well crafted songs that still rock hard. After proving his songwriting skills beyond his work with Ozzy, Zakk became a very poignant influence in my life as a musician and guitarist. Nobody rips that pentatonic scale as fast as he does, on electric and acoustic guitar. And to think, he was only 19 years old when he started playing with Ozzy! I am proud to be a Black Label Disciple beyond forever...

Now, in regards to Mafia! This album is a very good offering from the BLS, something different, much life Hangover Music Vol. IV. Zakk never disappoints and always delivers, and does whatever he wants musically, on his own terms. Though on a musical level, this album is not as heavy or perhaps as consistent as "The Blessed Hellride" or "1919 Eternal," it is a good album, very reminiscent of early Black Sabbath albums. The nice mix of dark, minor-keyed piano work and acoustic guitar with the bombastic and ultra heavy electric guitar riffs showcases Zakk's amazing talent as a musician and frontman. Zakk remains one of the last premiere commercial/mainstream rock guitar heroes of the 21st century, and listening to Mafia, the innocent listener will understand why.

I'm not going to go in to the techincal analysis of Zakk's work on this album. I'll save that for another reviewer. Suffice it to say Zakk has raised his own bar lyrically, productionally, musically as well as his maturity as noted in the hidden 15th track where he touches a nerve in all of us who have got some experience of life under the ole belt as well as setting the neck of his guitar on fire in that tune. With a riff like Funeral Bell I thought Zakk had nailed one of the ultimate hooks. Then comes You Must Be Blind. I'm beginning to think Zack just might bring back to the forefront true Rock and Roll single handedly. Ok perhaps that's a bit of an overstatement. But, not by much. The guts and nuts he puts in his music reminds me of the true rock and blues masters of today and yesterday. Zakk... every cd you put out is a step beyond. You are leaving a trail of some of the best rock on the planet. Keep it up. And to you youngsters out there on MTV with your "numetal whining, woe is me" and/or "I'm a tough guy with my guitar pathetic attempt at music lets all sound the same crap", you would do well to study Zakk and learn what it takes to be actually good at Rock and Roll. Do your thing Zakk, just keep doing your thing.
