I'm not digging this at all. A very sluggish, ass-dragging record. Only two songs you might call uptempo, and you have to go five tracks in to get to the first one. Predictable riffs (and not very heavy ones, for the most part), Zakk's droning, mostly tuneless vocals, almost no hooks ... man, I had hoped Shot To Hell was just a fluke, but here we go again. "Scars" is an okay ballad, and "Damn The Flood" shows signs of life. "Shades Of Grey" might have been good if Zakk could carry a tune in a fucking paper bag, but he can't. And the album title is stupid, the Black Vatican being Zakkspeak for his home studio (having attempted to read his dreadful book, I know he has to have "cute" nicknames for everything and everyone). If these songs are the from the catacombs, they deserved to stay buried.

Yeah, I kind of agree with Doghouse on this one. BLS is best when they play Pride and Glory tunes.

That almost sounds like what they're trying to do here, Doug, except, unlike P&G, the songs mostly aren't very good.
