Black Label Society have unveiled full details of their upcoming record "Catacombs of the Black Vatican," presenting front cover and the official track listing.
The album's first single, "My Dying Time" is also available for streaming, make sure to check it out below. Fans point out at a certain dose of Alice in Chains vibe in this one. Would you agree?
Discussing the record with Rolling Stone, frontman Zakk Wylde stepped into the weird side a bit, jokingly saying, "When I heard this record, I looked at myself in the mirror and started making out with myself. [Laughs] It's that good."
But Zakk didn't stop there. "The second time I listened to it, not only did I make out with myself, I groped myself," he added. "It's that good."
On more of a serious note, Wylde commented: "Obviously, it's not a departure where we're making a jazz record. It's like when Sabbath or Zeppelin put out new records - it's just a batch of ass-kickin' Sabbath riffs or Zeppelin stuff. I tell people, 'It's kind of like the last eight records, except we have different titles on this one.' That's like any of the bands we love, whether it's Zeppelin or Sabbath or the Stones."
The album is scheduled for April 8 release, pre-order it now on iTunes.
