April 28, 2021 – Black Label Society shared their newest music video for the rip-roaring single “Heart of Darkness” today in continued celebration of their NONE MORE BLACK box set, available now via Entertainment One (eOne). The track is originally from their ninth studio album Catacombs of the Black Vatican (2014), now remastered and reissued as a double LP in the career-spanning NONE MORE BLACK box set that includes their deep catalogue, now on 20 newly pressed and repackaged pieces of vinyl. The “Heart of Darkness” official music video features Zakk Wylde and co. performing the fan-favourite with psychedelic flair.
The NONE MORE BLACK box set features their 12 full-length studio albums in remastered and refurbished physical form for the first time alongside a 32-page hardcover photo book, NMB bottle opener and the “Odin’s Demolition Squad” back patch. It also includes a compilation of bonus tracks and reworked originals now on vinyl titled Song Remains Not The Same Vol. 2, which features the track “Blind Man” that was shared as an official music video last week. In true Wylde fashion, the frontman also created an accompanying infomercial for the box set (watch). The limited quantity release is now available to order in eOne Heavy’s US, UK and EU stores here.

About Black Label Society
Black Label Society bandleader Zakk Wylde wields his guitar like a Viking weapon, bashing out thick riffage and squeezing out expressive squeals as if the glory of his Berserker brotherhood depends upon every single note, which of course, it does.Charismatic beast and consummate showman, Wylde puts his massive heart and earnest soul on display with unbridled, unchained, animalistic passion in Black Label Society, whether it’s a crushingly heavy blues-rock barnstormer or a piano-driven ode to a fallen brother. Each Black Label Society album is another opportunity to top the one before it, but like AC/DC or The Rolling Stones, BLS isn’t here to reinvent the wheel. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s a brand we can trust.
Mighty missives like “Damn the Flood,” “In This River,” “Stillborn,” “My Dying Time,” “Queen of Sorrow,” and “Blood is Thicker Than Water” have amassed millions of downloads and streams. They are the soundtracks to sweat soaked revelry, jubilant evenings that descend into bewildering mornings, and adrenaline-fueled sports.
To many, Wylde is synonymous with pinch harmonics as much as Chuck Berry dreamt up the duck walk. Zakk’s signature Les Paul Bullseye guitar hangs in the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. His infamous leather bellbottoms hang in the Grammy Museum. His handprints are on Hollywood’s Rock Walk of Fame. He’s performed the National Anthem at major sporting events. He wrote the 2013 Major League Baseball theme for ESPN. He even momentarily joined Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff in Guns N’ Roses. He is a playable character in the Guitar Hero games.
A lifelong disciple of Black Sabbath and the longest-serving guitar-shredder for the Ozzman himself, Wylde co-wrote modern Ozzy Osbourne classics like “No More Tears,” “Mama I’m Coming Home,” “Road to Nowhere,” and “Miracle Man.” Together with Ozzy bassist Blasko and drummer Joey Castillo (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age), Wylde pays faithful tribute to the forefathers of metal as frontman for Zakk Sabbath.
One part invading horde and all parts travelling carnival party, Black Label Society traverses the world powered by caffeine and cacophony. BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join in and participate in their brotherhood and sisterhood of hard rock and vigor.
Now ten studio albums deep, with solo records, Ozzy shows, and Zakk Sabbath tours all kicking ass simultaneously, Black Label Society rides ever forward, fist held high.
Black Label Society is: Zakk Wylde – Vocals, Guitar / John DeServio – Bass /
