Discussing the fresh Black Label Society

was up for a laugh as usual, noting he had "ripped off every Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber song I could possibly pick up."
Chatting with Loudwire
, the axeman responded to the interviewer's positive remark about the single "My Dying Time
" being more radio-friendly. "Well, if you think that's radio friendly, wait until you get a load of the rest of the album,"
Zakk said. "I've ripped off every Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber song I could possibly pick up. Basically, I tell the fellas in the band, 'We're heading to the top.' The top of what mountain? I have no idea. But we're heading there."
Wylde once again responded with a laugh as the interviewer noted that the band "at least didn't rip off Avenged Sevenfold,"
adding, "Right? Hey, listen, man, whatever's working, we're stealing. We'll deal with the lawsuits later on."
When describing the new material in previous interviews, Zakk said that the fans can expect the same approach and vibe as always, "except with different song titles."
The band's new album, "Catacombs of the Black Vatican
," is due on April 8 via eOne music as the ninth studio effort in BLS opus. "My Dying Time" fetched mostly positive remarks from both fans and critics, make sure to check it out below.
