ZAKK SABBATH Product Presentation Video for Vertigo CD / DVD Artbook
Early September will see Zakk Sabbath, the Black Sabbath tribute band with guitarist / vocalist Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), bassist Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens Of The Stone) Age), release their spectacular homage to the Birmingham four, a faithful but supercharged interpretation of Black Sabbath’s debut album.
Vertigo Records released the iconic debut album on a Friday the 13th in 1970, and the world has never been the same. Legendarily recorded in a single day in October 1969, the eponymous earthwork ensemble closed the book on hippie optimism with its dark magic and ushered in a whole new genre, setting the model of metal for decades to come.
Exactly 50 years later, Zakk Sabbath is celebrating the first chapter of the Sabbath catalog with a reverently paid tribute, simply titled Vertigo, slated for release September 4 via Magnetic Eye Records. Faithfully recorded in the spirit of the original, live in the studio and with a film crew documenting the process, the session culminated in a new take on a landmark album that celebrates the greatest heavy metal band of all. time and the drive that started it all.
“We recorded a live EP and were wondering what we could do next as a cover band, so the album’s 50th anniversary came just at the right time,” Blasko says of Zakk Sabbath’s decision. to go to the studio. “Compared to Paranoid, which is almost like a best-of, most of the material on Black Sabbath is a really experimental track that has never been fully explored, so it was a challenge, not to mention we wanted to respond to our own high standards. “
Describing the DIY process as “very productive,” the three respectfully added their own flair to create a slightly different flavor, also revisiting various live performances and “extending a solo here or slowing things down because that’s what it is. they tended to do on stage. “
Zakk Sabbath’s Vertigo will not be available digitally, “to make the release feel authentic to the days when vinyl ruled the earth. It was such a cool time for those of us who grew up around that time. The fan experience with the physical product is irreplaceable with digital and streaming, and we wanted to capture that authenticity.
