In honor of Black Sabbath’s debut album celebrating its 50th anniversary, Zakk Wylde will re-record the album in 24 hours.
Wylde will cover Black Sabbath completely in analogue, direct to two-inch tape. The entire album will be recorded in 24 hours just like it originally was 50 years ago.
“Legendarily recorded in a single day in October 1969, the earthmoving self-titled set closed the book on hippie optimism with its dark magic and ushered in a brand new genre, setting the metal template for decades to come,” Wylde wrote. “Exactly 50 years to the date later, Zakk Sabbath will celebrate the first chapter in the Sabbath catalog with a reverently rendered tribute, simply titled Vertigo. Our aim is to faithfully re-record the album in the spirit of the original recordings: live in a fully analogue studio, direct to two inch tape, in a single 24 hour period. A film crew will document the process, culminating in a single album and DVD release limited to just 500 copies and delivered to purchasers on February 13, 2020.”
