Zakk Wylde Promises To Return To "Heavy Stuff" On Catacombs of the Black Vatican
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.24.2014



In an interview with Billboard reports that Zakk Wylde has promised that Black Label Society's new album Catacombs of the Black Vatican will go back to the "heavy stuff" when it is released on April 8. It is the band's ninth album.

On the eleven songs on the album: "They're rock songs. It's how 'Order' was or whatever else. It was easier this time. They're rock songs; these aren't Mahavishnu Orchestra tunes with several parts and you've got to be tight. They're rock songs; it's that easy. There's no, like, four months of pre-production. If you're rolling with guys who know how to play their instruments, it takes two seconds."

On recording the album: "We just got an upgrade in the studio before we made ('Catacombs'). When we did the 'Order' record, that's when we christened the Black Vatican, getting the sound of he room and whole nine yards. Now the drum set is in there, set up and ready to go, all my amps, my guitars, all my crayons are set up in there, ready to use. So we don't take as much time mic-ing stuff and moving stuff around. If I want a clean guitar I know which (instrument) to grab and which amp to put it through. So it's really great now. It would have been really wonderful back in the drinking days, when I used to sleep over at the studio because I wasn't going to drive home. This way I could've crawled back into the main house -- or rolled into it."

On this being BLS' first album without rhythm guitarist Nick Catanese: "He's never really played on the studio records, but this time I called him and said, 'Nick, do you want to come out and while I'm playing piano on certain songs you can just play acoustic guitar on certain things,' 'cause that's what we do as well. And he was like, 'Zakk, I'm knee deep in this thing, recording with these guys.' After that, when Nick called again, it was like, 'Zakk, I really want to sink my teeth into this thing. I just need to do it for me,' and I said, 'Dude, of course, man. I love ya, Nick.' You've always got a home here. Do what you got to do and kick some ass.' We still love him, man."
