What the American hard rock and metal scene needs right now is an infusion of youth and some new blood coursing through its veins. Enter ANTI-MORTEM and their upcoming debut album, New Southern. Formed in 2008 and with over 300 shows already to their name, the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21-years-old. ANTI-MORTEM were raised on southern rock & heavy metal and driven by a hunger to make an impact. The band dole out bottom-heavy and groove-laden anthems with every track and infuse a modern sense of melody that is the signature trademark of all the metal greats they've learned from.  Also present and accounted for: southern swagger in spades, courtesy of the band's roots and upbringing.

(NEW YORK, NY) - BLACK LABEL SOCIETY has been announced as this year's headliner for the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS TOUR, presented by EPIPHONE. The tour will kick off the second week of April and finish up in early June. Supporting acts are set to be announced soon.
The band, led by guitar icon Zakk Wylde recently announced the release of "Catacombs of the Black Vatican," their highly anticipated new LP due out April 8th, 2014. In addition to the album art and track listing, BLS released their first all new single titled, "My Dying Time," heard here.
Zakk Wylde recently appeared on VH1 Classic's That Metal show and stopped by The Artie Lange show while in NYC to talk all things "Catacombs of the Black Vatican."
The Revolver Golden Gods Tour follows up last year’s Road to the Golden Gods Tour, which was headlined by STONE SOUR, and like that trek, it ties into the Revolver Golden Gods, America’s only hard-rock and heavy-metal award show. The details of the 2014 edition of that show will be announced shortly.
"Catacombs of the Black Vatican" is the first all new LP from BLS since "The Order of the Black" was released in 2009, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
The band recently announced "An Evening With Zakk Wylde," a 13-city Canadian tour across Canada featuring intimate versions of some of the band's most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde's best-selling solo album "Book of Shadows."
Since their late nineties inception, Black Label Society, formed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of their genre. Their taste for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation.
Zakk Wylde, who has been called one of the true guitar heroes in modern history, served as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist for over 20 years in addition to his work with BLS. This collaboration led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling "No More Tears," for which Wylde wrote all the music.
In addition to holding Guitar World Magazine's MVP four years straight Wylde has been bestowed with such accolades as "Best Rock Guitarist" from Guitar Player,  "Metal Guru" from the recently held Classic Rock awards in the UK, "Golden God” by Metal Hammer, the “Best Guitarist” Award from Revolver Magazine. Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with.
Black Label Society continues to enthrall fans around the globe, and "Catacombs of the Black Vatican" is another incredible piece in the band's catalog.
