BLACK LABEL SOCIETY: 'Overlord' Video Released

"Overlord", the new video from BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, can be viewed below. The clip, which was directed by Eric Zimmerman and Nik Jamgocyan of Master Cylinder, finds guitar legend Zakk Wylde and his band in a satire of '70s kung fu movies. Wylde is featured as the Bruce Lee-type action hero (yellow jumpsuit and all) in hot pursuit of the this case an old lady who holds the key to a very special prize.

Zimmerman and Jamgocyan previously worked with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY on the "Fire It Up" and "Blood Is Thicker Than Water" clips as well as the "Doom Troopin' Live - The European Invasion" DVD.

"Overlord" will be the next single from BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's latest album, "Order Of The Black"; it follows the breakthrough Top 20 rock radio track "Parade Of The Dead".

In other BLACK LABEL SOCIETY news, the band's first-ever Christmas tune, "The First Noel", is available now on iTunes. The track is a beautiful instrumental which highlights Wylde's prowess on the 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.

"The First Noel" (also known as "The First Nowell") is a traditional English Christmas carol, most likely from the 18th century. In its current form it is of Cornish origin, and it was first published in "Christmas Carols Ancient and Modern" (1823) and "Gilbert and Sandys Christmas Carols" (1833), both of which were edited by William B. Sandys and arranged, edited and with extra lyrics written by Davies Gilbert.

The word Nowell comes from the French word Noël meaning "Christmas", from the Latin word natalis ("birth").
