1919 Eternal (also stylized as 1919Eternal) is the third album by the heavy metal band Black Label Society. It was released on March 5, 2002 and was written for Zakk Wylde's father.


Five songs from the album sessions were written by Zakk Wylde for Ozzy Osbourne's album Down to Earth. Ozzy rejected the songs because they were "too Black Label", so Zakk kept them for this album. The songs were "Bleed for Me", "Life, Birth, Blood, Doom", "Demise of Sanity", an alternate piano version of "Bridge to Cross", and a demo presumably called "I'll Find the Way". The latter two were never released. These original demo songs featured drummer Christian Werr, a friend of Zakk's who happened to be in the right place at the right time to record the tracks. Later, when Zakk went to re-record these demos for 1919 Eternal, Christian's drum tracks were used for "Bleed for Me", "Life, Birth, Blood, Doom", and "Demise of Sanity", which is why Craig Nunenmacher does not appear on these songs.


The album artwork is based on German Nazi propaganda poster used to recruit Dutchmen into the Schutzstaffel (SS).
