Due to negative feedback from fans about Ozzy Osbourne’s Soul Sucka title, the newly renamed album Scream has those same fans aching for a new record to follow up the amplified darkness that was 2007’s Black Rain. Adding to the thrills is the latest song by our Prince Of Darkness himself, dubbed “Let Me Hear You Scream”, a pure rock song with a killer solo and vocals that still make one question how Ozzy Osbourne is so indecipherable during normal speech, yet somehow comes across clear as crystal on CD.
Debuting on the April 14th episode of CSI: New York, “Let Me Hear You Scream” is the first taste of the now-aptly-named Scream, expected to be released on June 15th of this year. While some of us are still clueless as to the fate of our beloved spectacle known as Ozzfest (though an official announcement is set for tomorrow), a song like this should surely keep everyone hyped enough to get by until word has otherwise surfaced from beyond the one-date grave.
Thanks to our dear friends at Rock It Out! Blog, we bring to you a quite-pristine stream of the latest from the Ozzy camp, with some postscript to add some ambiance (or fear, whichever suits you):
“When I heard they were going to use ‘Let Me Hear You Scream’ for a prison riot scene, I thought, ‘Well, now that’s something I know about,’” Osbourne said. He was in prison before his 18th birthday.
Meanwhile, my three-year-old is rocking out to this track, so yet again Ozzy proves that metal transcends the generation gap.
