In early 1998 Zakk Wylde, Mike Inez and Randy Castillo were hired by Ozzy Osbourne for a tour in New Zealand, Australia and Japan but when the band returned from Japan they were all let go without reason. Zakk went to Italy in early May and did a one-off show by himself before calling up the drummer Phil Ondich and what became Sonic Brew was recorded in May 1998 in Miami, Florida. Zakk and Phil decided to call the band Hell’s Kitchen and the album was to be called Sonic Brewery. Phil designed all of the artwork and did the booklet layout for the album but after a few weeks they decided to change their name to Black Label Society since they were unable to get a trademark for the Hell’s Kitchen moniker. Sonic Brew was released in Japan in 1998 and in Usa in 1999. The band needed a bass player and Zakk put an ad in all guitar magazines. However, he found no-one of interest and instead he hired his long-time friend and former Pride And Glory replacement bassist J.D. All this time Nick Catanese had been in the band as well. The band did their first show ever in Japan on May 1st, 1999, at Club Quattro, Shibuya Tokyo. After a Japanese tour the band went to Europe and did the Dynamo Open Air in front of their largest crowd ever. The set list was made by five tracks from their debut album, two Pride And Glory tracks and one Ozzy cover. Fans of early Wylde material need this one
