Book Of Shadows II
was released on April 8th, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne
Music), Zakk Wylde's first solo release in 20 years. This release is the
highly anticipated follow up to 1996’s Book of Shadows
LP, a classic album Wylde released between his work with Ozzy Osbourne
that has since become a fan favorite. The album debuted at #2 on the
Independent Chart, #3 on the Rock Chart and # 6 on the Current Albums
Chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The fearlessly introspective melancholy and melody of Book of Shadows helped to make its follow-up one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2016.
As fierce and diverse as his work in Black Label Society and as large
as his accomplishments as lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne have been, Book of Shadows II offers
an even richer look into the spirit and psyche of one of the most
beloved pillars of the hard rock community. Brand new tracks like “Sleeping Dogs,” “Tears of December,” “Darkest Hour,” “Harbors of Pity,” and “The King” are bold proclamations of intense feeling and powerful catharsis.
Zakk Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous
humor, and instantly recognizable pinch-harmonic driven blues based
histrionic guitar shredding have made him the world’s most beloved
American Guitar Hero.
he’s unplugged or fully electric, Wylde’s guitar skills are never in
doubt, and that’s definitely the case on Book of Shadows II. Certainly
not a party album, it’s one better enjoyed kicking back, mellowing out
and letting the emotions wash over you." LOUDWIRE
and Allman-esque, Wylde integrates soulful acoustic singer-songwriting
with a strong ensemble and a variety of contemplative moods."VINTAGEGUITAR
