Book of Shadows is the first solo studio album by the heavy metal guitarist Zakk Wylde. The album was first released in 1996 by Geffen, and was reissued by Spitfire in 1999 with the bonus disc containing "Evil Ways" (the Japanese bonus track from the album's original release), "The Color Green", and "Peddlers of Death" (an acoustic version of a track that features on Black Label Society's Sonic Brew).

After spending several years with Ozzy Osbourne and recording one album with the heavy Southern rock trio Pride & Glory, guitarist Zakk Wylde released his debut solo album, Book of Shadows, in June of 1996. Naturally, the album is a guitar showcase, with each song boasting a dazzling guitar solo or two. That much was expected. What is a surprise is the musical diversity apparent throughout the album. Wylde does kick out some heavy riff-driven rockers, but he also detours into blues, country, and folk on occasion.
Book of Shadows was a key disc in the development of Wylde's identity outside of being known as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist. He penned the 1996 album in between his work with Osbourne and later went on to form Black Label Society, which has been his primary musical vehicle over the last two decades. Much like the original, Book of Shadows II will show a lighter, more introspective side to Wylde's music. In other Zakk Wylde news, the rocker will head to the NAMM Convention in Anaheim, Calif. the weekend of Jan. 21-24
