Black Label Society


Stage: Apex Stage Day: Saturday Set Time: TBA

While members of esteemed rock and metal institutions like Alice In Chains, Metallica, Type O Negative, Clutch, Danzig, and Megadeth have passed through the band’s ranks, Black Label Society has consistently been defined by Zakk Wylde’s unmistakable voice and signature guitar sound and the steady rumble of bassist John DeServio. Bluesy guitarist Dario Lorina and powerhouse drummer Jeff Fabb joined Wylde and DeServio in the BLS crusade back in 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The Black Label Society studio discography is like an instruction manual on how to expertly craft heartfelt, no holds barred, heavy metal infused American hard rock. ‘Sonic Brew’ (1999), ‘Stronger Than Death’ (2000), ‘1919 Eternal’ (2002), ‘The Blessed Hellride’ (2003), ‘Hangover Music Vol. VI’ (2004), ‘Mafia’ (2005), ‘Shot to Hell’ (2006), ‘Order of the Black’ (2010), ‘Catacombs of the Black Vatican’ (2014), and ‘Grimmest Hits’ (2018) should be required listening for all aspiring blues-based rock musicians.
