Forget Lady Ga Ga, Black Sabbath Are Back

Black Sabbath

That’s right, The Greatest Heavy Metal Band are Back.

Last Friday many things happened including the release of Immortals and the latest Elder Scrolls game was released. This is better than both of those put together. They have influenced many of the greatest bands in the world; they were the pioneers of Heavy Metal and one of the most successful bands in the world. Now after 5 years since their last performance Black Sabbath have reunited. In the history of Heavy Metal there have been many different bands. Bands like Metallica, Motorhead and Saxon can all trace their roots back to Black Sabbath. Since they started the bands core members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward but over the course of many years the line-up has changed several times with Iommi being the only person who did not leave the band. In 1997 the band reunited as all 4 core members and carried on like this until 2006. During this time they were inducted into both the UK Music Hall Of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now in 2011 all 4 core members are back and they have plans. Last Friday they appeared at Whiskey a Go Go for an announcement of their reunion presented by Henry Rollins. They appeared along with record produce Rick Rubin and announced a European tour in 2012 as well as appearing at the 2012 Download festival (Metallica is also going to be at the 2012 Festival – Metallica and Black Sabbath, can it get any better). The band also announced the first new album in 17 years which is expected to be released in 2012. Do I need to say anything other than Black Sabbath are back and now they are back I am really happy and really excited to hear them and maybe see them live. So Forget the X Factor, forget Lady Ga Ga and all other wannabe UK Bands because the Masters of Heavy Metal have returned and those other acts are not as Fantastic as Black Sabbath.
