Zakk Wylde has said that he expects to complete work on his album Book Of Shadows II within weeks.
The Black Label Society lynchpin had recently confirmed that he planned to release the album on the anniversary of his original 1996 solo album, Book Of Shadows.
Speaking in interview with Phoenix New Times, Wylde said: “We ended up having about 40 basic tracks we put down. It’s a matter of putting lyrics to them and finishing them up.
“I’ll probably start recording again before Christmas, doing some vocals, then try to knock out as much as I can in January – and the record should be done.”
