Black Sabbath Post First Footage From New Album Sessions
After announcing June as a release month for their forthcoming studio album, metal legends Black Sabbath have decided to give fans a chance to see what's been going on behind the scenes with a 3-minute video preview. The video features band members talking about both the present and the past with frontman Ozzy Osboure calling "13" "quite possibly the most important album" of his career. The singer recently described the new album as "satanic blues", adding that he is no longer that "crazy, raging alcoholic drug addict" he used to be during the making of "Never Say Die" back in 1978. "The new material, I really like it, I think it's really good and we got some good stuff going", says guitarist Tony Iommi. As far as the production goes, the guitarist tells us both the band and the producer Rick Rubin are looking for "raw Sabbath" sound. The producer himself recently stated that he wants "13" to be able to compete with the first four Black Sabbath releases. "I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums. The first album wasn't a straightforward heavy metal record. You could hear the jazz influence, so that was the goal, and to capture that live interaction."
So are you excited about this one? The things seem to be going pretty good in the studio, but do you think the new album can truly match the classics from back in the day? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.
