Zakk Wylde Set To Re-create Black Sabbath's First Album
Updated: Aug 16, 2019
Vertigo Records issued the debut album by BLACK SABBATH on Friday, February 13,1970, and the world was never the same. Legendarily recorded in a single day in October 1969, the earth-moving self-titled set closed the book on hippie optimism with its dark magic and ushered in a brand-new genre, setting the metal template for decades to come.
Exactly 50 years to the date later, ZAKK SABBATH, the all-star BLACK SABBATH cover band featuring guitarist/vocalist Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE), will celebrate the first chapter in the SABBATH catalog with a reverently rendered tribute, simply titled "Vertigo". ZAKK SABBATH's aim is to faithfully re-record the album in the spirit of the original recordings: live in a fully analog studio, direct to two-inch tape in a single 24-hour period. A film crew will document the process, culminating in a single album and DVD release limited to just 500 copies and delivered to purchasers on February 13, 2020.
