Sabbath's my favourite band, with either Sabotage or Sabbath Bloody Sabbath being my favourite Ozzy-era albums. The stuff they did with Dio is absolutely classic, and even though I think Ozzy's voice suits the older material better than Dio's, Dio's a much better singer and frontman overall. Maybe not in Sabbath, but in general. After Master of Reality Ozzy's voice started to get whiny, and by the time Bark at the Moon came out, it became annoying.

The albums they did with Tony Martin/Ian Gillan are also awesome. I have Born Again on vinyl.
Maybe U2 wouldn't suck so hard if they stopped preaching and started rocking instead. Of course, that's difficult to do with Pantera holding a near monopoly on all things that rock.

Glad to hear there's more people out there who know about the Born Again album. Good sh*t.

Holy shit! New Heaven & Hell album in 2008!

This is a complete 100% about face from everything I've been told. Since this project was started, I've been told not to expect anything past the tour, which ends in November. It was all about Dio going to do a new Magica album, etc, etc, etc... Well, spin my nipple nuts and send me to Alaska - it looks like we're getting a new Black Sabbath Heaven & Hell album in 2008, from Dio / Iommi / Butler / Appice. Normally I wouldn't update sites on my anniversary, but this news was too hot to hold back.

I was just sent this press release and was told to post it - it will go out in England on Monday.

For Immediate Release -

There's been much speculation of a forthcoming Black Sabbath reunion with the original line-up with Ozzy Osbourne at the helm, but founding member Geezer Butler has adamantly denied such rumors.

"Heaven and Hell are currently in discussions with various record labels about recording a brand new studio album in 2008," says Butler.

My favorite music in this world is that made by that wonderful quartet. Every single song that those four have made is pure awesomeness, including the three new ones they made for the Dio Years album. I cannot f*cking wait for this new album, if it happens.

Can anyone tell me how the Heaven and Hell CD is? I loved the album (the one from way back when). I almost bought the DVD the other day, but chose Megadeths instead 'cuz I wasn't sure how H&H would be these days...
#169
How H&H would be these days!? RJD is still at the top of his game, at an ancient age of 65, when most people's voices star deteriorating. Iommi is baller as ever, still cranking out those classic riffs and blazing fast solos and trills. I've never seen Geezer as excited and into his playing as he is nowadays, and Appice is of course an amazing drummer.

There are two reasons for you to buy the "Dio Years" CD:

1) All the tracks have been remastered and they sound brilliant.
2) The three new tracks they recorded for the CD will blow your mind away. I eagerly awaited 'The Devil Cried,' ever since they announced it, and it was surely an instant hit for myself. My favorite one of the three is 'Shadow of the Wind.' That song is so dank, and the lyrics are wonderful, with a memorable riff. 'Ear In the Wall' is a pretty awesome song as well, and not as strong as the other two, in my opinion, but a great song nonetheless.

If you have any amount of respect for RJD, Iommi, Butler, or Appice, you will go buy that CD now.

Off to go see them tomorrow....in spite of the fact that Wembely arena is the worst venue in the world, words cannot describe how excited I am right now.
Those of you who have been, what side of the stage has Tony been standing on?

I know your excitement. I was just in the same situation not too long ago. It's going to be the best goddamn concert of your life.

When they play Children Of The Sea, you will be so fu*cking happy, you'll forget about everything else and just enjoy every nanosecond of it.

The coolest part of the show for me was in Falling Off The Edge Of The World, when Appice does the cymbal roll, leading into just Iommi playing his riff. He did a little shoulder shrug, closed his eyes, and played it like it was second nature to him.

I love Sabbath.

Indeed it was.
Iced Earth were very cool, the new songs sounded a lot better live than on the album. Should have been the main support methinks.
Spent Lamb of God's set playing tennis on my phone. All I know is that their vocalist liked to spit a lot.

Sabbath set (more or less in order)-
E5150
Mob Rules
Children of the Sea
Sign of the Southern Cross
I
Drum Solo
Computer God
Falling off the Edge of the World
Voodoo
Guitar solo/Die Young
Heaven and Hell (w/massively extended guitar solo)

Shadow of the Wind
Neon Knights

Dio's vocals were somehow even better than when I saw him a couple of years ago, the playing was flawless, the stage was awesome, the arena was pretty much totally full, and literally everyone was singing the Heaven and Hell riff on the walk back to the train station.
T'was rather good, in other words.

Cool, give it a comprehensive listen. I'm going to go on a quest to own all Sabbath CD, studio and live. I bought five so far, but I guess I'll gather them all within the next couple of months.

Did you ever listen to any other Tony Martin albums?

^ Again, two super-good ignored albums. Every track from Headless Cross is gold, especially "When Death Calls." I'm about to turn in for the night, but enjoy Tyr, and someone keep this thread alive for a change.

Martin has a cheesy as hell voice..... its not bad its just generic 80's feeling to it.


Honestly hate to sound like an Ozzy elitist but I don;t even bother with the post Ozzy stuff, it just doesn't have the same thickness music wise.

You seem to have never heard of Dehumanizer. The vibes off the album are quite like the name... very heavy, doomy, and probably the heaviest thing Sabbath has done. "Thick," as you may like to say.

Blasphemy! With rockin tracks like Gypsy, Dirty Women, Rock 'N' Roll Doctor, and All Moving Parts Stand Still, that album owns.

If there's one thing special about Sabbath that's only true with a few other bands, it's that no matter who the vocalist, bassist, or drummer is, Sabbath always rocks because Tony Iommi is chargin' through.

I think the Sabbath album I listen to least is probably Never Say Die, although I do enjoy it quite a bit. It's a bit more synthy than the other Ozzy albums.
