Supergroup featuring guitarist/vocalist Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), bassist Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age) drops Vertigo on September 4th, 2020.
Zakk Sabbath have been constantly gigging since 2014 with their take on the Birmingham four’s early songs. Legendarily recorded in a single day in October 1969, Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut was released on a Friday the 13th in 1970, and the world was never the same.
Blasko explains: “Compared to Paranoid, which is almost like a best-of record, the bulk of the material on Black Sabbath is really experimental stuff that was never thoroughly explored, so we took the challenge with our own high standards.”
Zakk Sabbath’s ode to the masters won’t be available digitally, “to make the release feel authentic to the time when vinyl ruled the earth.” The songs were faithfully recorded in the spirit of the original – live in the studio and with a film crew documenting the process – culminating in a new celebration of the greatest heavy metal band of all time and the record that started it all.
