It’s taken 20 years, but guitar hero Zakk Wylde is finally ready to release his sophomore solo album. Wylde, who is known for fronting Black Label Society and formerly holding down lead guitar duties with Ozzy Osbourne’s band, will release his second solo album, “Book of Shadows II,” on April 8.

“Book of Shadows II” follows Wylde’s solo debut, “Book of Shadows,” which dropped in 1996. Wylde released “Book of Shadows” when he was part of Osbourne’s band. He went on to create Black Label Society in 1998.

Wylde plans to take “Book of Shadows II” on the road with a North American tour. Dates for the trek are expected to be revealed soon.

In other news, Wylde is currently keeping busy with his Black Sabbath tribute band, Zakk Sabbath. The group will perform on Jan. 23 in Anaheim, California, at the annual National Association of Music Merchants Convention.
