Metal pioneers Black Sabbath have decided to build-up the anticipation for the June 11 release of their new album "13" even further by revealing the official cover artwork. In the latest 30-second video clip, we can see the cover burning itself into shape, with a snippet of one of the new tracks blasting in the background.
A nifty, classic Sabbath riff and signature Ozzy Osbourne vocals will most likely get the fans' blood pumping, making them realize just how long it's been since they heard Ozzy, Tony and Geezer jamming a fresh tune and how much did they actually miss them. The only lyrics we can get to hear Ozzy singing are "Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide," which just might be the new hit song title.
The album itself has been in the making since last year and is now set for an early summer release via Vertigo/Universal Records. As the first Sabbath record to feature Osbourne on vocals in 35 years and 1978's "Never Say Die," the record was produced by Rick Rubin. The produces has made it clear he is planning a big future for the new record, saying that his goal is to make an album he can "listen to forever."
"13" will also feature drummer Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine who got hired for the recording process after the group parted ways with the original drummer Bill Ward due to contract issues. You can check out the new cover and the unveiling video below.
