While Zakk Sabbath’s name may be a cheeky homage to the iconic Hard Rock / Heavy Metal band Black Sabbath, this Rock trio is more than you’re average tribute band. Led by acclaimed guitarist Zakk Wylde, Zakk Sabbath actually shares a strong musical link with the original British quartet: Zakk Wylde highest-profile musical project is as lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne’s band. Formed in 2014, Zakk Sabbath’s line-up solidified with the arrival of bassist Rob ‘Blasko’ Nicholson (Ozzy Osbourne / Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig / Queens of the Stone Age).  A virtual supergroup of Metal giants, Zakk Sabbath began as a live project that grew into something quite phenomenal. And it all started back in Jackson, New Jersey in the mid-1980s…

After playing in several local Hard Rock bands in New Jersey, Zakk Wyle replaced Jake E. Lee in former Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band in 1987. He toured and recorded with Osbourne for the next five years. When Ozzy announced his (short-lived) retirement in 1991, Zakk formed Southern Rock band Pride & Glory. After that group’s demise, he briefly went solo before forming Black Label Society (BLS) in 1998. During his successful run with BLS, he rejoined Ozzy’s band from 2001 until 2009. After his second exit from Ozzy’s band, Zakk Wylde continued to record a run of BLS albums alongside another solo album, the 2014 formation of Zakk Sabbath, and a return to the Osbourne fold in 2017. He also found time to join the reunited Pantera and toured with them in 2022 and 2023.

Zakk Wylde and Zakk Sabbath return in 2024 with their second album, DOOMED FOREVER FOREVER DOOMED. The group’s first album, the internationally praised VERTIGO (2020), found the trio celebrating the 50th anniversary of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut. This time around, Zakk Sabbath tackle the albums PARANOID (1970) and MASTER OF REALITY (1971) on this double album that is available in several formats including different colored vinyl LP variants, two different 2CD sets (regular and deluxe), and even on cassette! More than just a covers album, DOOMED FOREVER FOREVER DOOMED             founds Zakk and the boys just as heavy as ever, offering their own unique spin to classic Black Sabbath songs such as “Iron Man,” “War Pigs,” “Paranoid,” ‘Sweet Leaf,” and “Lord of This World.” While these recordings are pure Zakk, they retain all the nuances of the original versions with an added emphasis on the classic Zakk Wyle energy. They may not be reinventing the wheel, but then again… maybe they are!
