    Go here to watch the video for Zakk Wylde's new single, "Overlord." It's a bluesy anthem, but Wylde pays tribute to the Kung Fu movies of the '70s, with the famed guitarist adopting the Jujitsu Lipshitz persona! Zakk Wylde doing chop sockey and wearing different costumes of that era? I love it!

    The video, directed by Master Cylinder, finds Wylde and his Black Label Society in a satire of 70's Kung Fu movies. Wylde is featured as the Bruce Lee-type action hero, sporting a yellow jumpsuit that reminds me about Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, in hot pursuit of the Overlord...in this case an old lady who holds the key to a very special prize. "Overlord" will be the next single from Black Label Society's latest album Order of the Black.

    In other Black Label Society news, the first-ever BLS Christmas tune, "The First Noel," is available now on iTunes. The track is a beautiful instrumental which highlights Wylde's skills while unplugged and playing an acoustic guitar. Black Label Society's proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to The Zakk and Barbaranne Wylde Foundation at St. Jude's Children's Hospital, a charity The Wyldes have long supported. Happy holidays from Zakk Fuckin' Wylde.

    Did you watch the video? Did you listen to the Christmas song?
