Zakk Wylde Emoji Set Now Available
When it comes to "metal" emojis there are a few out there such as the devil horns sign popularized by Ronnie James Dio, a skull and a guitar. Now you can add a whole bunch more to your next text message with the new Zakk Wylde emoji set.
They were developed by Emoji Fame, and include Wylde's face with several different expressions, amplifiers and a lighter to raise in the air for your favorite power ballad. Check out a photo of all of them below. The emoji set is now available via iTunes.
"Many members of the Emoji Fame team are secretly guitar nerds, so when Zakk Wylde agreed to do an emoji set with us we were beyond excited," says Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame. "Zakk is arguably one of the top ten most influential guitar players of all time and we're immensely proud of the set that we put together with him. His emojis are hilarious with a double dose of SHRED thrown in for good measure.”
Wylde released the solo album Book of Shadows II last month, and will be embarking on an extensive tour in support of the disc. The trek with Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown and Jared James Nichols kicks off July 8 in Dallas and wraps up nearly two months later in Los Angeles.
