Zakk Wylde will re-record the entire Black Sabbath debut album with his Zakk Sabbath project. The work, titled “Vertigo,” will be released on February 13, 2020, when the original turns 50.
“Our goal is to faithfully re-record the album in the spirit of the original recordings: in a fully analog studio, straight to roll tape, in a 24-hour period,” Zakk explained.
The process will be filmed for a future DVD, which will be released with the album in only 500 copies. In fact, the pre-sale was sold out in two hours.
Black Sabbath is the debut studio album by the English rock band Black Sabbath.
