Black Label Society have dropped a hilarious, chaotic visual for "Room of Nightmares," the first single off the band's 10th album Grimmest Hits. Directed by long time collaborator Justin Reich, the clip finds Zakk Wylde and Co. headlining a youngster's 11th birthday party — dressed in animal costumes, no less! The celebration then quickly devolves into anarchy when Wylde decides to test out his janky homemade guitar pedals. ("I've never used a soldering gun before," he admits, "but I figured, what could go wrong?") Before long, the room's flooded with pirates, ninjas, zombies, priests and clowns, who'd rather beat each other to a pulp than play any party games; things really start to go downhill when a pirate accidentally blows up the cake, prompting the band to get in on the brawl. Check out the madness now, and remember, don't fuck with Zakk Wylde (especially when he's rocking a gorilla suit).
Due out January 18th via eOne, Grimmest Hits is the follow-up to Black Label Society's 2014 album, Catacombs of the Black Vatican, as well as Wylde's solo album Book of Shadows II, released last year. You can pre-order the record here.
Over the summer, Wylde reunited with Ozzy Osbourne at the Chicago Open Air for their first concert in eight years; they're set to share the stage once again at the Ozzfest Meets Knotfest festival in San Bernadino, California, on November 4th-5th. Speaking of the Ozzman, Wylde's Black Sabbath covers band, Zakk Sabbath, have a slew of tour dates coming up — check out their itinerary here.
