Now how did something this raw and unadulterated find it's way onto the Billboard Top 200 album charts? 1919 Eternal buy CD music 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. 1919 Eternal CD music contains a single disc with 14 songs. ...See Full Description

1919 Eternal buy CD music I was first exposed to Zakk Wylde after I bought the “Just Say Ozzy” ep. The guitarist was amazing, playing note for note Tony Iommi's riffs and leads. I didn't think about Zakk much after that, except for the occasional, "Oh yeah, he's Ozzy's guitarist." When the movie "Rock Star" was released, I was blown away by the fictional band, "Steel Dragon" At the time I didn't know Zakk was in the band or the movie. It wasn't until I bought the soundtrack that I realized Zakk had been involved with “Rock Star”. Of the handful of "Steel Dragon" songs on the CD, Zakk's guitar playing is in your face, balls to the wall, heavy metal rock 'n' roll! This is what lead me to rediscover what Zakk Wylde was all about. I’d read an article in Guitar One magazine about Zakk’s guitar rig about the same time “Rock Star” was on pay per view. Marshall Amplification was also issuing a Zakk Wylde special edition amp. This, in itself, is quite an honor. Only one other guitarist, Slash, has had a special edition amp. Out of all the possibilities in the rock music world, Slash and Zakk Wylde! So it would seem Zakk has achieved guitar godhood! “1919*Eternal” is Zakk Wylde’s latest CD with his band Black Label Society. “Blistering” is how the promotional sticker describes the album. I call it brutally heavy, but it’s not without lighter moments, “Bridge To Cross” is a very cool song reminiscent of something off David Gilmour’s first solo album. On this song Zakk actually sings, he should do more “singing”. On “Speedball” Zakk demonstrates his ability as an accomplished acoustic guitarist with a beautiful flamingo style ditty that’s nothing short of brilliant. “Lost Heaven” is another, less than 3 ton song, that again allows us to actually listen to Zakk’s vocals. And then finally, a wonderful acoustic version of “America The Beautiful”. I love the way Zakk has arranged this tune with strings and other treatments, absolutely beautiful. This guy really has talent. He’s great with heavy metal, hard core intense music, but this album shows versatility. I think Zakk could join ranks with such virtuosos as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen. The only real problem “hear” is with the vocals. It’s not exactly what I would call singing melodically. These “vocals” are appropriate, I suppose, for the style of music Black Label Society plays. Snarling, growling, yelling and shouting really don’t count in the singing department, so the vocalizations took a bit of getting used to; but once I was in the “Zakk” mode they seemed to fit very well. But it would seem to me that if Zakk can write a song like “Speedball” then he should be able to change his vocal styles as well. I am confident that the longer Zakk continues in the music business, the better he will become. But for now, he’s a kind of 21st century version of Ted Nugent. I don’t mean this in a negative way, but until Zakk sheds the persona he has created for himself, I doubt he will move up the ladder and hang with Joe, Steve or Yngie.
By a reviewer (Henderson, KY)
1919 Eternal is a very heavy album in the grand tradition of BLS. A few of the songs are a little too nu-metal for my taste, but overall a very solid record. The last track on the album is a stellar instrumental take on America the Beautiful, which is an abrupt shift in style for BLS, but is quite pretty nonetheless and is appropriate. It is a very solid rocker, and you should buy it.

||Progress Is Made|
1919 Eternal is less dreary and monotonous than the band's first two albums, as there are more memorable songs. There still too many plodding moments ("Graveyard Disciples," "Mass Murder Machine," "Refuse To Bow Down") that are fine by themselves, but tend to get boring all together. But how can you complain too much when you've got absolute killers like "Demise of Sanity," "Genocide Junkies," and the vaguely industrial-sounding "Bleed For Me." Add on a spine-chilling, somber rendition of "America The Beautiful" and you've got a damn good metal album.

Made a copy of my friend's CD just because it was free. Listened once and thought 'whatever;' listened again and kept it in my deck for almost a month. Excellent; heavy yet melodic, as well as lyrically intelligent. Hope for the future of Heavy Metal.
