Beware all ye who despise the art of the pinch harmonics.
If you are at all familiar with Zakk Wylde’s work as the frontman for Black Label Society, you know exactly what I’m talking about – those shrieking, bent guitar notes that are slipped into every conceivable nook and cranny of the song. That’s just how Zakk rolls; it’s his signature style. Personally, I don’t have a problem with it at all, but those who simply can’t stand it should be warned up front that on BLS’ eighth studio album, nothing has changed in that regard.
In fact, Order Of The Black lacks almost any semblance of exploration from a band that is so deeply entrenched in its own sound. But, honestly, does BLS seem all that much like a band that wants to push the boundaries of its sound? They do a few things really well, and that’s no different here.
