CYCLE OF PAIN/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Bassist Interviewed; Audio Available recently conducted an interview with CYCLE OF PAIN/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY bassist John "J.D." DeServio. The chat is now available for streaming at this location.

"14 Devils", the new video from CYCLE OF PAIN, can be viewed below. The clip includes footage from CYCLE OF PAIN's recent Black Label Bash tour dates with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.

The self-titled debut album from CYCLE OF PAIN was released on April 21 via Reform Records/Rock Ridge Music. The CD features guest appearances by Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE), Ray Luzier (KORN), Brian Tichy (BILLY IDOL), Sen Dog (CYPRESS HILL), Russ-T Cobb, Hugo Ferreira (TANTRIC), Marcus Ratzenboeck (TANTRIC), Clip Payne (P-FUNK), Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY) and Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X).

Accompanying DeServio in CYCLE OF PAIN is vocalist/rhythm guitarist Gregg Locascio, lead guitarist Joe Taylor (who plays with Doro Pesch) and drummer Rich Monica. In fact, DeServio, Locascio and Taylor were in a band together when they were only 15 years old. "We grew up together," says DeServio. "It's family, just like BLS."

Taylor sees the band as a modern twist on the bands that originated metal. "I think we're a band that is much needed in the scene today," Taylor commented. "CYCLE OF PAIN is basically what all of us are missing when we go to a show."
CYCLE OF PAIN began its tour the day of the album's release (April 21), opening for BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.

"We're part of a family tree that started with BLACK SABBATH," added J.D. "From there came Ozzy with Randy Rhoads, then eventually Ozzy with Zakk. Zakk started the whole BLACK LABEL thing, which I became a part of, and we've now reached the point where I have my own project in the same line of such huge names as Osbourne and Iommi, Rhoads and Wylde. It's a good place to be in."
