Black Label Society in the catacombs of Z7

The tours of Europe Black Label Society often do not contain many appointments in the Switzerland and so I was looking forward to the first announcement of the show in Z7 of „Catacombs of Black Vatican“-Tour. Black Label Society is a hard rock band from the States, by Zakk Wylde, his character and hairy giant guitar god, is headed. It seemed a lifetime ago, since this band last time visited Switzerland and you could tell that Saturday the numerous published audience. Finally back Zakk Wylde, finally Black Label Society and the guys were crashing, that in Z7 just so shook the walls!

Zakk Wylde was for many years the lead guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne and as this after the album „Ozzmosis“ End of the 90 decided, take a break for a long, this was an opportunity for Zakk Wylde, its time the side projects „Pride and Glory“ and „Zakk Wylde’s Book of Shadows“ dedicate to. 1998 finally lifted Wylde „Hell’s Kitchen“ from the baptism and began on album called „Sonic Brewery“ to work, in which parts of the song material nor from a session with Guns N‘ Roses came. The complete artwork and the songs were already, when it was found, that you look at the names „Hell’s Kitchen“ could not secure and so was out of fondness for whiskey the project ado in“ Black Label Society“ renamed. So ist Black Label Society bis heute quasi Zakk Wylde’s Soloprojekt und auf den Alben spielt er meistens abgesehen von den Drums alle Instrumente selbst ein, Live he reaches however back to musicians.

Black Label Society "The Blessed Hellride" Z7 Pratteln 14/03/2015

Many old but also new Black Label Society fans found on this Saturday night at a packed Z7. opened the evening Crobot, die Heavy Metal-Band from the US&A can with their Classic Rock- & Points metal mixture relatively quickly. With songs a la „Nowhere to Hide“ dominated singer Brandon Yeagley the perfect posing and can quickly win over the audience. Crobot boten eine solide Vorstellung und ebnten den Weg für Black Tusk, which fit into the opening act but somehow not really. their Music lies somewhere between Metal, Thrash, Doom and Sludge. Also rau, nasty and heavy, with quite a lot of double bass drums and the two-part singing is certainly a unique feature. Unfortunately, the band sounds quite monotonous in the long run, truncated, dirty and simply boring and for the band, only parts of the audience can unfortunately inspire. Most of staring just to the stage and are sometimes polite applause, Mood is different.

Es erhob sich dann ein Banner mit dem Logo von Black Label Society um die Bühne etwas zu verhüllen. A lot of it has not been used, since one could look at the sides wonderful past. It has been prepared and checked everything and already here was significantly, quiet it is not. The band was absolutely top form. in the first song after the intro spührte to the energy from the stage. The intro sounded, followed by siren sounds and the song with the appropriate title „The beginning? At Last“. With a crystal clear sound and a massive stage presence the band blows the fans directly on the wall and shall coincide with the pounding „Funeral Bell“ or „Bleed For Me“ further breaker according to. The amount quakes and celebrates from each song, while the band supports almost perfect playfulness and Posing. Of course, it can also be by Zakk Wylde „Damn The Flood“ do not take, burn still felt quarter-hour guitar solo unrestrained, Gitarrenporno deluxe. If you like it… I've definitely fault this evening, that there were no cans of beer and one would have to wiggle for some unknown reason with schwab reproduced plastic cups through the jam-packed Z7.

Zakk Wylde Solo (extract 1) Z7 Pratteln 14/03/2015

Bassist John DeServio mixed already for some time in the band and bristled with energy. Bearded and like a little Rumeplstilzchen he scurried to his side. His five strings but he never ran out of sight. What the man with the deep tones hired, was terrific. The same applies to Dario Lorina, new guitarist in the band. the Boy Bung knew his instrument to use and should get a very special song his great entrance. Chad Szeliga was also the drummer. There was no drum solo, but it thundered from the background powerful. The double bass deafened powerful and made for the right pressure. But the focus was clearly on the master himself. Zakk Wylde impressed with a fantastic deal on his guitars and it had plenty in. Among the fans a particularly close cohesion is demonstrated, the last but not least Zakk himself always emphasizes again, they were finally all „a family“. This results in, among other things, the „colors“, wearing motorcycle club-like patch the many fans on their west. Ultimately, however, this cohesion is rather theatrically, also the supposed „Code of Honour“ as originally in the booklet of the second album „Stronger Than Death“ finding is, is more fun to be understood, how to read the content becomes clear.

It followed the ballads block, starting with „Angel Of Mercy“, what is Zakk Extra set to the Keyboard. As behind him flags were hung in the likeness of Dimebag Darrel, It was clear, what's coming: „In This River“, he once more in his 2004 Dimebag Darrel devoted murdered friend. Zakk sang this song with a lot of feeling and yet enormous power and therefore the highlight of the show was already over. damage, I could hear the song in an extra long version and in a loop. The hymn goes through and through, leaving behind a reverent audience. The conclusion from the set were then „The Blessed Hellride“, „Suicide Messiah“, „Concrete Jungle“ and „Stillborn“. What remains at a late hour a geflashtes audience, Top Performance der Black Label Society. Good work made the man behind the controls, who let the Z7 bestowed a fat sound. As the last notes of „Stillborn“ had died away and the hall light felt much too quickly was turned, showed exactly the clock 90 Minutes. Seen would have one or the other song more in a set place had.

Black Label Society "Angel Of Mercy" Z7 Pratteln 14/03/2015

A thoroughly successful evening and on the disk act the songs rather leisurely, live cut but a part as to, especially the the new album, that's incredible. An absolute live band, you should have seen once in life. Zakk Wylde does not count for nothing at the best metal guitarists active today and is already a public appeal figure. However, his fellow musicians he changes quite frequently, especially the bassist item has historically been subject to a variety of line-up changes. Among the most famous holders probably counts Robert Trujillo, which coincided with the end of his time with Ozzy Osbourne and his work at BLS ended a little later in METALLICA enter. Black Label Society rockten den Basler Traditions-Tempel eindrücklich. Although not as „wylde“ like in old times, spit with less, cross themselves less, less aggression, However, heavy, with good sound, with full board on guitars and all, what to expect. Black Label Society sind definitiv live immer noch eine Macht und absolut hörenswert. No mercy and hell yeah!

DBD: My Dying Time – Black Label Society

Ehrfürchtig lauscht man dem Meister zu, if Zakk Wylde Bullseye unpacks the guitar. not always lohnt sich das auch. Aber dass der blonde Hüne auf der Sechssaitigen was drauf hat und dabei nicht nur Gitarrengewichse, but also damn cool riffs riff, weiss man. „Catacombs of the Black Vatican“ lautet der Name seines neuesten Albums und zumindest visuell macht das Video for Single „My Dying Time“ her a lot and not only visually, oder was haltet ihr von der Music?

Black Label Society - My Dying Time

Chosen fate, I have become
broken slave, and overrun.

In my dying time my wounds shall all be healed.

Servant to one’s suffering
The poisoned crown a fallen king

In my dying time you’re all that is real.
In my dying time my wounds shall all be healed.

In my dying time you’re all that is real.
In my dying time my wounds shall all be healed.

Da diese Änderung vermutlich nicht die Letzte sein wird, muss ich mir doch ernsthaft überlegen, if I look at the (again) antun will, denn die Preise für Getränke und Food Been last year unflätig hoch und ich gehe davon aus, that this will not be any different on Saturday.
