"Horse Called War" Is Released
"Horse Called War" is a song by Pride and Glory, released as their second promotional single from their self-titled debut album, Pride & Glory.
A music video accompanied the song, recorded in black & white it features the band performing in a live practice studio.
The horse Zakk rides is assumed to be one of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse, the red horse of war.
Pride and Glory was a side project for Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde. This was Zakk's first self-fronted project, after which he released the largely acoustic solo-album Book of Shadows. After that he formed Black Label Society, which remains his current band.
Coming together in 1991, during the No More Tours supposed-retirement tour for Ozzy's No More Tears, the band was originally named Lynyrd Skynhead and included the former White Lion rhythm section of bassist James LoMenzo and drummer Greg D'Angelo alongside Wylde. Although credited solely as 'Zakk Wylde' solo tracks, this line-up actually released two individual recordings; a raucous Southern instrumental entitled "Farm Fiddlin'" on a compilation called The Guitars That Rule the World (1991) and a cover of the blues-standard "Baby Please Don't Go" on the L.A. Blues Authority Vol. 1 compilation (1992).
