|In the age of rap-rck and nu-metal, Black Label Society were hailed as torchbearers of old-school metal. There's really nothing retro about BLS, though, and certainly not the '80's meetal some were expecting. Instead, BLS reahes no further back than Alice In Chains and '90's Corrosion of Conformity, combining the two into a thudding, churning steamroller of heaviness somewhat reminiscent of NOLA metal bands like Crowbar. On Sonic Brew, Zakk offers up crushing, downtuned riffs, a grinding and distractingly loud bass tone, and his own not-very-tuneful vocals (this is before he developed his whiny Ozzy impression). Highlights include 'BOred To Tears," "The Rose Petaled Garden," "Mother Mary," "Low Down," "World Of Trouble" and the mounrful ballad "Spoke In The Wheel." Also, there's a pulverizing, sludgy version of "No More Tears," a song Zakkk had written pre-Ozzy, and which is rendered almost unrecognizable as the title track to Ozzy's 1991 album.

|As some may know, Sonic Brew was remixed (or "re-blended" as Zakk calls it, trading in his booze references for coffee, like every middle-aged badass) and re-released for its twentieth anniversary. The sound on the new version is only marginally cleaner than original, still with that bass sound that even Lemmy would have turned down a bit in mix. We're also offered an acoustic version of "Black Pearl" and, conversely, a full-band rendition of "Spoke In The Wheel," as bonus tracks.
