Zakk Wylde presents his new video “Sleeping Dogs”
Zakk Wylde released the official video for his new single titled Sleeping Dogs from his new solo album. The guitar virtuoso conjures some stirring emotions musically and visually as a Voodoo rituals takes place. The video shows the guitar icon walking through an open field with his signature acoustic guitar over the shoulder. In the same field, clips of painted voodoo practitioners, known as “bokors” gather around in a circle, engaging a ritual. “Black Label Brethren O' Doom Father Justin Reich did another amazing job directing the video”, commented Wylde, adding his beloved sense of humor continuing, “I asked Father Justin to capture the sights, sound, smell and feel of the first day my parents dropped me off the kindergarten. Watching the video made me realize why I'm so fond of reading and vegetables”.
The album version of Sleeping Dogs will include a guest appearance by Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor. Said Wylde “having father Corey Taylor's brilliant voice sing on Sleeping Dogs fulfilled my vision of the two of us as the modern-day Simon & Garfunkel. We may not be as legendary, talented or as handsome as those two, but we've eaten at some of the same restaurants as them”.
