Zakk Wylde released a music video for “Sleeping Dogs” ft. Corey Taylor, the first single from Wylde’s second solo album, Book of Shadows II, with longtime collaborator John Irwin, which comes 20 years after Book of Shadows. Instead of heavy rock and metal, Book of Shadows II is influenced by southern rock, country, blues, and Americana. Corey Taylor is featured at the last few minutes adding his mellow side and warm vocals to the general mood of the song.

“Sleeping Dogs” has earthy and acoustic filled music along with Wylde’s kickass solo that speaks to the soul and proves that he is still the great artist that so many of us fell in love with back in the day.
