I heard that Black Sabbath wasn't approved of because they used the "devil's scale"

It's a tritone, an interval that was frowned upon due to its dissonant sound, and it was believed to be evil.

Back during the Baroque/classical/romantic periods it was pretty much forbidden.

Remember
you also didnt end songs on a minor chord either...


and it's usually Black Sabbath that is given credit for being the ones to use it most prominantly, and for the pure simple reason of going against this holy tradition.

if its enjoyable, its been banned by the church at one point or another.

1. Purple Haze was not around when "The church controlled everything" (Missed it by about....400 years)
2. You're thinking of black sabbath's self-titled song.
3. The devil's scale is the tritone

D --------5-|
A ----4-----|
E -3--------|

That pattern, because it sounds ugly and evil.

D --------5-|

E -3--------|

was played any more than 5 times with an organ combined with it, i'd freak out.

Magero's right.
That's a minor blues scale pattern

The intro's bass and guitar riffs are played in a tritone interval (the devil's interval)

This man knows his stuff.

Tritone (augmented fourth/diminished fifth) is sometimes called the "devil's interval" because it is six half steps. it is banned in church music, and banned in general when the church controlled stuff.

Opeth's "Drapery Falls" uses this immensely.
