Zakk Wylde Releases New Single Ahead Of Solo Album

zakk wylde press shot

Rock ‘n’ Roll royalty Zakk Wylde has released his latest single ahead of his much anticipated solo sophomore album ‘Book of Shadows II.’ Lost Prayer sees the Rock Walk Hall Of Fame Member delve into a more melancholy, blues inspired country ballad vibe, however don’t fret as there’s still a massive barnstorming guitar shreddathon towards the end for fans to drool over.

Often unfairly overshadowed by his remarkable guitar work, Wylde’s vocal display is a defining and underrated feature to this single. The contrast between the studio polished, guitar driven instrumental and Wylde’s raw and raspy singing create an incredibly satisfying and heart-warming sing along.

Best known as Ozzy Osbourne’s lead guitarist as well as founding member of metal icons Black Label Society, Wylde’s well-earned reputation as banner holder for Rock ‘n’ Roll doesn’t seem to be fading out anytime soon.

With nearly two decades between solo albums, ‘Book of Shadows II’ will give fans a new perspective of Wylde as well as a refreshing musical change from the no nonsense, hard rock brutality of Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne.

True guitar virtuosos are few and far between in this day in age, which makes any new Zakk Wylde creativity warmly welcomed regardless of the musical form it comes in.
