This album is another masterpiece from Zakk Wylde. With a nice mix of light, mellow songs with blistering solos and hard-rock crunchers like "Devil's Dime" and "Concrete Jungle", the album "Shot To Hell" should satisfy all of BLS's most die-hard fans. My favorite songs on the album are "Concrete Jungle", "Devil's Dime", and "Lead Me To Your Door".
Lyrics — 8
Zakk Wylde is known for his aggressive, and yet sometimes soulful lyrics. This album is no different. Songs like "Concrete Jungle", "Black Mass Reverends", "Devil's Dime", and "Blood Is Thicker than Water" call for menacing lyrics with a powerful approach to the vocal melodies. On the other hand, there are some great ballads on the album that let Zakk show off his skills and an amazing paino player and lets him show off an under-rated voice in the world of rock 'n' roll.
Overall Impression — 9
Compared to albums like "Mafia" and "The Blessed Hellride", this album will give fans a whole new base of songs to love. "Shot To Hell" retains BLS's heavy metal sound yet still gives them an edge will powerful ballads like "Lead Me To Your Door". I loved this album, and I'm sure every other BLS fan will.
