Whereas Ancient VVisdom’s last album, A Godlike Inferno, professed the worshiping of Lucifer through the band’s dark, cvlt acoustic rock and bold lyrics, 2013’s Deathlike is what the title suggests. The album’s 12 tracks explore death, from the beginning to the end and the realms beyond, all set to the band’s signature sound (more…)

On its way to becoming one of the top touring metal bands in the United States, Black Label Society has sprouted its own branch of a family tree that begins with Black Sabbath. Zakk Wylde, of course, rose to fame as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist before creating what has become an unstoppable BLS machine. It’s no surprise that his bandmates are multitalented musicians, as well. Drummer Craig Nunenmacher is playing guitar and singing in a solo project called Mourning Doves. Bassist John “J.D.” DeServio has reunited with his old friends to form Cycle of Pain; their self-titled debut album is in stores now. And the Evil Twin, guitarist Nick Catanese, has teamed up with former Queensryche guitarist Mike Stone in the new band Speed X. When Black Label Society’s Black Label Bash tour recently rolled through Philadelphia, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down with Nick backstage at the Electric Factory to discuss the tour, Speed X, Star Wars and more.
