Biography

Quick, name the guitarist whose previous albums have sold more than Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and AC/DC combined. Hint: It’s not Zakk Wylde.

“Let’s just tell everyone that anyway,” says the guitarist, before launching into a long conversation about other small white lies he’d like stated as fact (including his bench press and a certain anatomy ... Read more in Amazon's Black Label Society Store

4.0 out of 5 stars It's alright but for collectors only... 25 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Kings of Damnation is Black Label Society's 8th release and they just seem to be getting better and better. However this CD is really for die-hard fans only. First of all despite being released after Mafia there are no tracks from that album on here (and Mafia contains some of their best stuff!). It does say it's the era of 1998-2004 and Mafia was released after this. However I feel that Mafia should have been included.

Now after looking at the track list on the back of the cd I put it in my CD player and the first track, "Losin' Your Mind", a southern acoustic track is a good start point...if you include Zakk Wylde's solo work. You see Zakk Wylde did two solo albums before forming Black Label Society, Pride & Glory and Book of Shadows. These seem to have been included on the Black Label Society greatest hits...however the tracks from these two albums are good, redeming themselves.

Moving onto the Black Label Society tracks now. Tracks 5-17 cover all sides of Black Label Society well and include acoustic as well as electric work. There are a few tracks I think are missing though. Geoncide Junkies (1919 Eternal) or All For You (Stronger Than Death) perhaps. Then we move onto the two new songs, Doomsday Inc and SDMF. I bought this album for these two tracks as I already had the other albums and to be honest I didn't think it was worth the money I paid. They're OK but lack the roar metal guitar riffery of Zakk Wylde. I would go as far as saying they were more commercial (along with the album perhaps).

Then finally the second disc...it has some rare tracks and a couple of videos on. However it's a DVD and not a CD so you can't rip it I'm afraid. Overall though it's a relatively good introduction to Black Label Society but there are some key tracks missing and I feel it could have been structured better as well. Only for completists only or those who *must* buy it..

4.0 out of 5 stars were are the acoustic songs? 26 Oct 2005
By R. Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
well i bought this cd because the editorial review says there are acoustic versions of spoke in the wheel, bridge to cross, stillborn and the blessed hellride, but there not here! in fact, spoke in the wheel and bridge to cross are not here in any form! and it contains the original versions of stillborn and the blessed hellride. all of the tracks on cd 2 have been released before. if you have all of the cds with the bonus discs, you already have everything on this disc. even the videos arent anything new, if you have the dvd, you have 2 of the three videos. the only one extra would be counterfit god, which is cool. so all you get here that you dont already have are the 2 new tracks. some one needs to fix the editorial.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SPITFIRE COMPILATION 4 Oct 2005
By lefthandof power - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a compilation of material that BLS released on Spitfire Records. Mafia is on Atermis Records. That's why none of the songs off of Mafia appear on this CD. Zakk proabably owed them one more album on his contract and allowed this greatest of package.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT FAIR! 12 Oct 2005
By M. P Sheon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
what the hell? this is NOT a fair representation of black label society. sure, it's got 2 new songs, but c'mon. 1 friggin' disc?! 1 pride and glory disc, 1 solo zakk cd (book of shadows), and what 5 spitfire issued albums and 1 live affair, not to mention the "mafia" disc as well. for a band that has put out more quality albums than your average "mega" band,this crappy best of deserves a swift kick in the arse. if your a true society dwellar you'll pick it up like i did because you support the band. but if you are a casual listener, do yourself a favor and go buy the real deals. not this. BLEED BLACK LABEL!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect introduction to a heavy metal guitar master 15 Nov 2005
By George Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Good

If you haven't heard Zakk Wylde's early material, you may be a little surprised early on in this collection. He wasn't exactly the metal powerhouse he is today. There was a lot of southern rock and country influence on "Losing Your Mind" from the Pride & Glory days. I wasn't a big fan of Book of Shadows, but they picked probably the best two songs from that record that represent the Zakk of today; "Between Heaven and Hell" represents his softer acoustic side (with some great guitar tones), while "Sold My Soul" crossing the bridge from acoustic to electric mayhem. I would say these are the most commercial songs Wylde has ever done.

I was a bit disappointed that only one song from Sonic Brew was chosen, because that was by far the best BLS album in my opinion, but at least the picked the thunderous and devastating "Bored to Tears". "Bleed for Me" showcases a monstrous chugga-chugga riff and a vocally melodic Zakk Wylde. "Stillborn" is where Ozzy Osbourne helped out his faithful guitarist out with vocal; although, both men sound pretty much the same. "Crazy or High" revisits Zakk's early days of acoustic-based rock, but combines it with Zakk's new found vocal style and always consistent solos. There are two unreleased tracks included in the best of collection; "Doomsday Inc." is a balls-to-the wall metal thriller, and "SDMF" is just as powerful with a lot of enhancing electronic effects.

The Bad

"Taz", "Speedball", and "Takillya" are really just filler tracks. They do show off Zakk's guitar skills, but each clock in around a minute or so. Six years and six albums are a little early for a best of, unless you're calling it quits (which I don't think he is).

The Verdict

If you've been living in a cave in recluse from the rock world and started wondering, `who is this Zakk Wylde guy, and why is he held in such high regard as a guitar player?'; then Kings of Damnation is the perfect introduction to a heavy metal guitar master that's only just begun to crank out his best. If you've always been a fan, you'll be more than pleased with the new tracks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Good 8 Oct 2005
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Black Label Society is one of the few bands that plays real metal (as opposed to the likes of Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park), and they've put out so many great songs. But while the songs on here are good, they missed some of BLS's greatest songs like "Stoned and Drunk" and "All for You." Of course, if you are getting into BLS, this is a decent place to start, just know that there are great songs that were left off of here as well (motivation to pick up the individual albums). The two new tracks are pretty good, but people that already own the majority of the songs on here need not pick this up just for those two songs. This is just one of those albums that comes out after a record company loses and band, and release a (usually terribly put together) greatest hits package to take as much money from the band's fans as possible.
