Black Sabbath are back with the original line-up that originally ventured into the “darkness” of music and created what is known as heavy metal. Guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward haven’t released an album together since Ozzy’s dismissal from the band in 1979, due to his excessive drug use. However, the album recording went ahead without Bill Ward due to a “contractual dispute” and has been replaced by Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave‘s drummer, Brad Wilk. (Notice both drummers have the same initials 😛 )
The single ‘God Is Dead‘ is surprisingly good! It certainly feels as if it’s a track off one of my favorite albums, Paranoid.
