According to the official press release
, the current season's final episode is scheduled for airing on May 15 at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a special Black Sabbath cameo with the band performing the new song titled "End of the Beginning."
The scene itself will show characters D.B. Russell
) and Conrad Ecklie
) attending a Black Sabbath performance during an investigation of series of murders related to the sins in "Dante's Inferno."
"When we first heard that Black Sabbath was interested in premiering a song on 'CSI' from their first studio album in 35 years, we were all really excited. So many of us are longtime fans. And seeing as the album is titled '13' and this is the finale of 'CSI''s Season 13, it seemed like the perfect match. We couldn't be more thrilled,"
said the executive producer Don McGill
Black Sabbath will release their comeback album "13"
on June 11 via Vertigo/Universal Records and have already confirmed
a one month-long string of European tour dates during November and December. According to frontman Ozzy Osbourne
