UnBlackened: Black Label Society at the Grove of Anaheim

The Grove of Anaheim was the last stop on the “UnBlackened” tour by the almighty Black Label Society, fronted by the ultimate shredder Zakk Wylde. I was lucky enough to catch Zakk play a tribute song to Dime Bag Darrell at last year’s Golden God Awards, but hearing the whole band play an acoustic set is a whole other experience.

I am so glad they decided to make their one night only concert at Club Nokia Live DVD and CD in Los Angeles, a US tour. With their album “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” that was released last April, they added a new member to the family. Dario Lorina formally of Lizzy Bordan, is the new axe-slinger for BLS replacing long time guitarist Nick Catanese. When Zakk introduced each of the band members, he said that Dario not only kills it on the guitar, but he also makes a tasty chicken piccata! Still in the band is brother John (JD) DeServio on bass and Jeff Fabb on drums.

I arrived to the ceremony right in time for the black curtain to drop. A space was saved for me in the front of the barricade so I could see the whole show for the next two hours. The band opened with Losin’ Your Mind and the crowd did just that! The set list consisted of songs from Zakk’s solo album Book of Shadows and Southern rock band Pride & Glory. Acoustic shows are so much more intimate with the audience because you can actually hear the melodies of the songs and the emotions of the band.

Zakk always gives it his all but I felt he really put in the energy for the last show of the tour. Throughout the set he threw in long guitar solos while he and Dario kept switching back and forth from the piano to the guitar. Both piano driven tunes “In This River” and “Angel of Mercy” were two of my favorite highlights of the night. I would catch Zakk looking over at Dario with eyes of respect because Dario was holding it down on both the keys and the strings! Zakk pulled some of his famous moves and played the guitar behind his head a few times and with his teeth! Zakk pulled out the double neck Les Paul signature “bullseye” guitar and gave a truly epic performance and somewhere in the middle of the set he played a tribute to Dime Bag Darrel who as a really close friend of Zakk’s. The crowd held up their cell phones like lighters and sang along. It was a beautiful and touching moment and I really liked that he took the time to give his respect to not only his friend, but a talented musician that was taken away from us way too soon in life.

The set went by way too fast and before you knew it, the show was over. Zakk took the time to thank his fans and throw some memorabilia out into the crowd. I was up front and I saw Zakk wipe his face with a black towel and then he threw it right at me! I caught it and of course I kept it. Weird, I know, but hey it was a pretty cool moment. I must have been in the perfect spot because I also caught his guitar pic, what an epic night indeed!

“Catacombs of the Black Vatican” is the first all new LP from BLS since “The Order of the Black”was released in 2009, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

Most recently, the band released  the 2-CD set Unblackened,” which found Black Label Society in a mellower mood in a performance taped at Club Nokia in Los Angeles last year.

The band recently announced “An Evening With Zakk Wylde,” a 13-city Canadian tour across Canada featuring intimate versions of some of the band’s most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde’s best-selling solo album “Book of Shadows.

Since their late nineties inception, Black Label Society, formed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of their genre. Their taste for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation.

Zakk Wylde, who has been called one of the true guitar heroes in modern history, served as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist for over 20 years in addition to his work with BLS. This collaboration led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling “No More Tears,” for which Wylde wrote all the music.

In addition to holding Guitar World Magazine’s MVP four years straight Wylde has been bestowed with such accolades as “Best Rock Guitarist” from Guitar Player,  “Metal Guru” from the recently held Classic Rock awards in the UK, “Golden God” by Metal Hammer, the “Best Guitarist” Award from Revolver Magazine. Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with.

Black Label Society continues to enthrall fans around the globe, and “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” is another incredible piece in the band’s catalog.
