One of rock and metal’s great guitar icons in Zakk Wylde returned this year with a brand new album in the sequel to his first solo effort Book Of Shadows. The semi acoustic effort Book Of Shadows II brings Zakk back to a time where Zakk proved he was much more than a metal guitarist. Well, now Zakk returns with his first music video from the album for the amazing track Sleeping Dogs. The guitarist makes waves with his music video for the imagery that is involved in the video. The video features a lot of dark imagery like voodoo, witches, etc. which makes for a cool video to go with the flow of the song. Zakk commented on the video saying, “Black Label Brethren O’ Doom Father Justin Reich did another amazing job directing the video. I asked Father Justin to capture the sights, sounds, smell and feel of the first day my parents dropped me off at kindergarten. Watching the video made me realize why I’m so fond of reading and vegetables.” We also find out from Zakk that Corey Taylor of Slipknot is on the album version of the track saying, “Having Father Corey Taylor’s brilliant voice sing on ‘Sleeping Dogs’ fulfilled my vision of the two of us as the modern day Simon & Garfunkel. We may not be as legendary, talented or as handsome as those two, but we’ve eaten at some of the same restaurants as them.” Check out the video below:
