Zakk Wylde scored his biggest debut ever on the Billboard Album Charts this week with The Blessed Hellride coming in at #50 with almost 20,000 copies sold in the first week. The first single "Stillborn" is just about to crack the Top 10 on both the R&R and Billboard Rock charts. The video "Stillborn" was directed by none other than Rob Zombie.
On a related note, long time friend and future Hall Of Famer Mike Piazza also talks about his relationship with Zakk in the new issue of Playboy.
Light Is The Language and Emmanuel.7 will be releasing a split CD through Protocol Records later this summer. Both bands will be entering the studio very soon to record their material. Right now the plan is for each band to contribute 3-4 new tracks each, 1 cover each, some noise/interlude tracks, and there will also most likely be 1 collaboration track featuring both bands.
