Ok guys I was looking and I noticed there was no thread like this. WHY NOT!! Ok well it don't matter cause now there is. These guys definently deserve this, just like they deserved to be in the Rock n' Roll hall of fame, but they were turned down like 500 times before they finally got it. Anyway we can talk about all things Sabbath here, like all those lead singers, even though Ozzy is the only one I really liked in the band. So go at it

Ozzy or Dio?

Sabbath with Ozzy and Sabbath Dio are two different bands and shouldnt even be compared, no wonder all it creates is arguments. Sabbath with Ozzy had a real nice dark dirty sound to it, where was that with Dio...? Dio is my favourite vocalist (I also think Ozzy sucks) but I way prefer Sabbath with Ozzy. They should have changed name when Ozzy left or at least keep the sound.
I'm gonna live forever and if I don't suceed i'll die trying.

You have to have so much for what this bands done for metal. Without them metal wouldn't be what it is today. Tony Iommi is awesome! And yay, i get to see Ozzy play this year with Kiss, Alice Cooper, Poison, Whitesnake & Lordi =]

good point Dio is a better vocalist but Ozzy is just better with Sabbath and I believe they did change the name to Heaven and Hell didn't they?

They changed their name to Heaven & Hell, but that was only for the recent tour, back when Dio first joined they still went under Black Sabbath.

^It ended up benefiting the band's sound though. Who knows if we would have ever heard the sludgy Master of Reality if Iommi hadn't detuned so his fingers wouldn't bleed.

thats what I'm saying thats odd that it happened. He must have thought he wasnt supposed to play at the time but it made them switch from a blues band to possibly the first metal band

In my opinion...
Sab with Ozzy > Sab with Dio
Sab with Dio > Ozzy solo

I saw Heaven and Hell last year, they ruled... bottom line.

Hey, a little bit off topic... And probably a little n00bish.

But does anyone know if Tony Iommi (And Black Sabbath/Ozzy/Heaven and Hell) is Christian? I was looking through some Sabbath lyrics the other day, and I couldn't help seeing some definite Christian influences. And I guess I'm just blind or retarded, but I noticed today that Iommi wears a silver cross at all times and has crosses as inlays on his sig SG.

Thanks all.

After Forever is the only Sabbath song written by Iommi and it is heavily Christian. So I imagine he is probably Christian, though I don't know for sure.

Both Ozzy and Dio Sabbath is really good. So is it with the other singers in the 80's.
However it's difficult to compare the bands with all singer since every singer brought a bit new sound to that band.

Wonder how many times I've said that btw?

Does anybody think that the original Sabbath will ever get back together again? Because that would be pretty sweet. Hopefully it'll happen after Tony and Geezer are through with Heaven And Hell.

Ozzy used to be the man, but now? forget it, trust me, its much better to have Dio in the fold, they're even producing new music.

i saw them live, and not once did i think, man i wish it was Ozzy up there, because Dio kicked ass, never put a note wrong, and actually knew all the words.

not to put a downer on the Ozzy era stuff, or Ozzy solo, but nowerdays, hes not what he used to be, you can hope for a new ozzy album all you want, but the facts are, hes not in the shape he used to be.

Always been a huge fan of Sabbath, both the Dio and Ozzy years. Their S/T, Paranoid, and Master of Reality were amazing and incredibly influencial albums. Heaven & Hell and Mob Rules were great albums as well.

Dio and Heaven & Hell seem to be pretty awesome. It's really the best that Ozzy isn't touring with the old Sabbath line-up cause, as Supernaut2k said, he definately isnt what he used to be.

Shame they can't get Bill Ward drumming for Heaven & Hell though

Oh well, atleast they still got Iommi and Geezer

yeah i think its best for the time being at least, the thing going on with Dio now is the best thing that has happened to sabbath in years.

i dont want to seem like im putting a downer on ozzy-sabbath as a whole, my favourite album will allways be volume 4, that album is an icon for me, and remains one that i almost listen to daily
