I am very happy to find out that Pantera is not the only group keeping hard heavy music in the mainstream. Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society pound out some of the heaviest songs I have ever heard. The main thing I like about this album is, much like Pantera, there is no fear of a guitar actually being heard. Guitar solos are not back, they never left. Zakk proves this throughout this CD. When Zakk said that this album was to dismiss all the “boy bands” he wasn’t kidding. All you have to do is hear Counterfeit God and it will all be very clear. Just buy this CD. I cannot say enough good bout it. Except that he is one of the best “real” musicians around.
