Black Label Society have announced that they will be releasing a 20th anniversary edition of “Sonic Brew”, titled “Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19”, on May 17 via eOne Music. The effort has been digitally remastered and it will come with some bonus tracks including a full band/piano version of “Spoke In The Wheel” and an acoustic version of “Black Pearl.“
Zakk Wylde commented:
“The original recording back in 1997 was mastered with high volume, alcohol, and dance. We went in and worked off the existing performances and focused on the high volume and dance while replacing the booze with viagra and anabolic steroids. I wanted to re-blend and re-choreograph this release to be the most brewtal and dance-tactic album since Gloria Gaynor‘s ‘I Will Survive’ dominated the dance floor at Studio 54!”
This is the first in a series of reissues from eOne Music, who are also planning to reissue “Stronger Than Death“, “1919 Eternal“, “The Blessed Hellride“, “Hangover Music Vol. VI“, “Mafia” and “Shot To Hell” as well.
