Cleveland , Ohio – The mighty Black Label Society returned to a capacity crowd this week at Cleveland’s House of Blues . The almost intimate venue was the perfect stage for which Zakk Wylde to sonically shake the ear drums of all within those hallowed walls . One of the most respected guitar players around , along with a band that has to prove their musical chops on a nightly basis . This was metal for the masses . Imagine guitarist Dario Lorina stress as a musician . You are Zakk Wylde’s guitar player , that is one hell of a supervisor as your job .
The crowd was packed at the House of Blues with BLS shirts and tattoos everywhere . It was almost cult like but not , these were well versed metal heads ranging from 14 to 60 years of age and they came to rock . Zakk played close to two hours of music and the fans could not get enough ,all 17 songs were ingested like a warm meal with an ice cold beer to wash it down .Some of the fan favorites were ” Heart Of Darkness” ,” In This River ” and ” Fire it Up ”
