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.
