BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
Guitar icon Zakk Wylde and his Black Label Society will be performing a terrific show at the Rockhal on 11 June 2012. Wylde and his Berserkers have established a heavy metal institution true to the vision of uncompromising, unfiltered and unrestrained rock n' roll and are ready share their vision with the fans in Luxembourg.
In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known all over the world. Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now legendary Black Label Society in 1998. With their signature guitar sound and voice, they bring together southern rock, hard rock and heavy metal like no other band.
Black Label Society has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berserkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever. Wylde's inspiration comes from not only the fans, but from such notable guitarists including Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen, Frank Marino and Albert Lee, as well as the vocal styling of Elton John and Gregg Allman. Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence to a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today.
While his amazing in-your-face rock guitar riffs cut through to the bone, Zakk is much more than just that. He is able to play some really nice acoustic guitar songs and is also a superb piano player. Zakk also likes to bring in the organic symphony sounds to a few of his songs. He can hit some really heavy vocals or bring it down smoothly with emotion. Zakk is a super-talented multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, performer and singer.
On 11 June 2012, Zakk Wylde will heat the Rockhal audience together with his cronies of the mighty Black Label Society to deliver you their brand of "empowering metal". A show not to be missed for all you Berserkers out there!
