BLACK LABEL SOCIETY – Nuns And Roaches [Record Store Day Special Release] (2019)
As part of the current ‘Record Store Day Black Friday’ BLACK LABEL SOCIETY are releasing a Special Edition LP limited to 2,000 copies titled “Nuns And Roaches“, including previously unreleased material from 1999’s The Brewtality Lost Sessions.
As extras, you have the Glorious Christmas Songs EP, special for the upcoming holidays.
The songs of “Nuns And Roaches” come from the vaults of Zakk Wylde, recorded after the first Black Label Society album.
The sound & style of these songs possess the distinct bluesy hard rock / southern rock overtone that up to this time had predominated Zakk Wylde’s solo writing style.
As extras we added the ‘Glorious Christmas Songs’ EP appeared some time ago under the Black Label Society banner but in fact it’s Wylde alone with his guitar performing Christmas traditional songs.
Far from being ‘discarded’ material, “Nuns And Roaches” delivers very strong, enjoyable bluesy rocking songs.
