Zakk no longer too wild It’s now 12 years since Zakk Wylde’s last studio al­bum with the man who helped him be­come one of the pre­em­i­nent gui­tar he­roes of the past 25 years. Though now back as Ozzy Os­borne’s right-hand man it’s good to see that the ever con­sis­tent Black La­bel So­ci­ety re­mains a high pri­or­ity. Last year’s acous­tic

Book Of Shad­ows II al­bum has cer­tainly had a bear­ing on the bliss­ful or­gan-led The Only

Words, but even the Sab­bath-wor­ship­ping beasts have a more laid back feel. Sea­sons

Of Fal­ter and Dis­be­lief are content to swing rather than stam­pede while the emo­tive so­los on A Love Un­real and The Day That

Heaven Had Gone Away are among his very best. [AR] Stand­out track: Room Of Night­mares For fans of: Black Sab­bath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cor­ro­sion of Con­form­ity
