I am so excited to launch the newest podcast here at Metal Injection: Squared Circle Pit! The goal of this podcast is to talk to metal musicians almost exclusively about pro wrestling and their love of it. To kick things off, we have a huge guest, legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde. Zakk of course played with Ozzy Osbourne and his own band, Black Label Society and while he wasn't shredding, Zakk was taking in some pro-wrestling.
We talk about some of Zakk's favorite wrestlers, including the Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man Randy Savage, Undertaker, Chris Jericho and more. Zakk shares some tales of hanging backstage with the boys, witnessing WrestleMania VII live and Zakk even shares some opinions on the new Star Wars film (lots of spoilers).
Zakk Wylde's new solo album, Book Of Shadows II, his second solo album, is out on April 8 via eOne. Listen to the excellent first single, "Sleeping Dogs" here.
Check back for a new episode of Squared Circle Pit in about two weeks. Special thanks to Hugh Myrone for the intro music.
