Black Label Society 'Mafia'

Black Label Society's Mafia is a great album. I think it's a must have for any BLS fan. As is the video for "Fire it Up". The song's great but the video is also very well done. I mean, who doesn't love seeing the news delivered by two skeletons? The video is mixed with dark humor and the truth about how the world is turning into hell on Earth.

The album has great power tracks to a wonderful ballad dedicated to Dimebag Darrell to a fuckin' Lynyrd Skynyrd cover! Though, I must say that one of my favorites is "Electric Hellfire". Great song and the ending is my opinion that is. This is one of the few albums that I can just sit back, hit play and jam out to the whole damn thing. While having Zakk Wylde's signature guitar sound I think a few of the songs could've been better. For example the intro on "Fire it Up" gets old after you listen to it a few times. I think they could've easily found something better. But as I said, the album has mostly strong and very strong tracks.

I highly recommend that everyone get a copy of Mafia, I truely think you'll love it.

Just a quick update

As some of you may or may not know, I'm currently working on remixing different songs. As well, I'm working on some original stuff. I've only been at it a couple of months, but I'm currenlty working on a remix for Negative Earth's version of "Gloomy Sunday". I'm happy to be working on it, music is something that I've loved all my life, so is entertaining others in some form. Hopefully when it's done, depending on the final word from NE, you'll enjoy it as well. I do know, it will be added to the music player featured here. Until it's up, if you'd like you can go to my SoundCloud page and give a listen to my first three remixes....or not, they are on the player after all. lol

I'm always looking for helpful advice. It's a little difficult for me as I can't play any instruments. If you know any musicians that would like to help me out with some original instrument compositions/stems I'd love to hear from you. And I'm going to do something that I've never asked of any of my readers, please let your friends/family know about this blog so that we can hopefully increase the number of musicians that see this and hopefully would like to collaborate with me and help me get better.

Just remember I don't do this for money, this is for just pure enjoyment and a hope to entertain others.
