From truly humble beginnings in a working class district of Birmingham, Black Sabbath are responsible for changing music forever. Together, Ozzy Osbourne, Terry 'Geezer' Butler, Bill Ward and Tony Iommi gave birth to the dark, distorted sound that has become the insignia of metal music.
With subject matter encompassing apocalypse, destruction, death and drugs, the grinding riffs and doom laden basslines of Black Sabbath continue to influence a huge swathe of bands. Listening to headbangers' favourite, 'Sweet Leaf', the crunching riffs of 'Children Of The Grave' or the catatonic 'Iron Man' is to find the source of The Nile, discover the origin of a species.
There is no accolade high enough in stature for these multi platinum selling, bone crushing monsters of rock, they are simply the Kings of Heavy Metal and for that we should all be grateful.
When I started writing Sabbath stuff it was just something that sounded right. I didn't think I was going to make it Devil music.Tony Iommi
