Ozzy Osbourne, "Soul Sucka" (Epic)
Release Date: June 2010
The Prince of Darkness has returned to the dimmed confines of his home studio in Los Angeles to work on his first album since 2007's gold-certified "Black Rain." Kevin Churko, that album's co-producer and songwriting collaborator, is back onboard, as are regular Ozzy cohorts Rob "Blakso" Nicholson and drummer Mike Bordin, along with keyboardist Adam Wakeman and new guitarist Gus G (aka Kostas Karamitroudis) of Firewind. Songs include "Let It Die," "Diggin' Me Down" and the title track. Osbourne will support the album with a two-year world tour that will include a relaunch of the Ozzfest package this summer.
