    Now how did something this raw and unadulterated find it's way onto the Billboard Top 200 album charts? Usually when a heavy metal album hits the top of the pops, it's either a long-in-the-tooth vet like Ozzy or some nu-metal crossover laced with pop sensibilities. 1919 ETERNAL is certainly neither of those; it's a hard-charging metal album that makes no compromises, delivering stomping rhythms, growling vocals, and of course, chainsaw-from-hell guitars on a mission to destroy all in their path. Despite this take-no-prisoners approach, Zakk Wylde is apparently modest enough to hide behind the moniker Black Label Society, when nearly everything on 1919 ETERNAL is played by Zakk himself with the exception of the thunderous drums heartily provided by skin-pounder Craig Nunemacher. If you're looking for melodic pop hooks here, you've come to the wrong place. Wylde brings the metal throughout this album in a manner so unabashed as to make his cause seem downright noble.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (4/02, p.122) - 3 out of 5 stars - "...Their 3rd album owes much to Sabbath: 'Genocide Junkies' steals riffs from both 'Children Of The Grave' and 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', while the title of 'Life/Birth/Blood/Doom' speaks for itself. Yet Wylde is no one-trick pony...he can play an acoustic guitar even faster than Eddie Van Halen on 'Spanish Fly'. And that's pretty damn fast."
    CMJ (3/4/02, p.14) - "...[known as] Ozzy's six-string co-pilot, the Wylde-man has hacked out his own identity..."
