Zakk Sabbath, Zakk Wylde’s Black Sabbath cover band, will re-recorded Black Sabbath’s debut album “live in a fully analog studio”

Zakk Wylde’s Black Sabbath cover band Zakk Sabbath has planned a special way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut album. Zakk Sabbath will┬áre-recording the entire self-titled debut album to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the record from Ozzy Osbourne and company.

To make the recording conditions for the new version of “Black Sabbath” similar to the original, which was recorded over the course of only one day in 1969, Zakk Sabbath will tape their album, “Live in a fully analog studio, direct to two-inch tape, all in a single 24-hour period.” Moreover, the guys will film the recording process for an upcoming documentary.

Zakk Sabbath’s take on the original “Black Sabbath” will be called “Vertigo,” taking its name from the record label that released the original album. The album is slated to arrive on Feb. 13, 2020, which is the very day of the 50th anniversary of “Black Sabbath.”

Right now, “Vertigo” will only be 500 copies, and those copies have already been sold-out. For more information and details on future “Vertigo” releases, head to
