Black Label Society - The First Noel

Season’s Greetings everyone!

To get you further into the festive mood (one day to go!) have a listen to Black Label Society’s version of the traditional English Christmas carol, “The First Noel.”

It’s not the usual BLS heavy metal fare, it is a beautiful acoustic rendition from their covers album The Song Remains Not The Same. As usual Zakk Wylde’s guitar playing is excellent.

Honorary Headbanger

It is official now: William Shatner is an Honorary Headbanger. As we brought to your attention several weeks ago, Captain Kirk himself had been nominated to receive the Honorary Headbanger Award at the annual Revolver Awards. Shatner received his award during the ceremony, and photos of the event are now available for you to check out at the bottom of this post.

Scott Ian from Anthrax and comedian Brian Posehn presented the award to Shatner, which is handed out to someone who is not necessarily seen as being in the metal community, but embodies the spirit of metal. The award is a timely one for Shatner, who is currently working on a new music project: his first-ever metal album.

Revolver Golden Gods

Spock may not think the merging of Shatner and Metal to be a logical one — but at this point in 2011, William Shatner is becoming more metal than ever. And even at his age of 80, there seems to be no stopping the once Captain of the USS Enterprise, for this year he will be releasing a metal album, as we reported on several weeks ago. To acknowledge his efforts not only towards his current album project, entitled Seeking Major Tom, but also for his entire epic career, William Shatner will next month be awarded the Honorary Headbanger Award at the annual Revolver Awards.

The Revolver Golden Gods is an awards ceremony to recognize all metal, held every year. The Honorary Headbanger Award is handed out to someone who is not necessarily seen as being in the metal community, but embodies the spirit of metal. With his upcoming album featuring collaborative efforts with numerous metal artists, and his long career in Star Trek and acting in other roles over the years, Shatner is an artist of determination who continually breaks down the doors of what people think he should do (or if people just think it to be… odd).

Star Trek meets Black Label Society

William Shatner is working on another music project, and this time it’s all about metal. Following a “space” theme, and titled Seeking Major Tom, Shatner is joining forces with some major hard rock icons for the new project, which is set to be released later this year. Essentially, the release is a covers album, but with covers brought together to tell the story of a concept album.

So far, Shatner has collaborated with Brian May (Queen), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society), Peter Frampton, Ian Paice (Deep Purple), and Steve Howe (Yes). Seeking Major Tom is said to be a collection of 18 “rock anthems” reinterpreted to tell the story that Shatner is putting forward on the album.

Yes, 69 cents!

Note, this sale is only for today, Wednesday November 10, until midnight PST.

For less than a dollar you get this 26-song double live album from the metal band, which boasts former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde on guitar and vocals.

Do I really even have to do the math on this? Ok, fine, Math Time = $0.69 divided by 26 songs = $0.265 per song. That’s less than 3 cents per song, c’mon, buy it now! You’d be insane not to.

If you’re a fan of Black Label Society, then there shouldn’t even be a moment’s hesitation. Grab this now. If you’re not that familiar with the band, well, for 69 cents, you can take a chance on them.

The songs on the album were recorded earlier year during the band’s Berzerkus Tour, in support of their latest album Order of the Black, which was released in August 2010. The Berzerkus Tour is still underway in the United States and will soon make its way to the UK.
