Black Sabbath
« on: August 06, 2007, 01:25:26 am »
I don't know, but I've lately been a lot into Black Sabbath, especially their early stuff.
So, I thought maybe we could start a topic on them, I know a certain undead will find it very enjoyable.
BTW: Here is a video I did especially dedicated to the undead in question.

I see no video  :unsure: or am I blind?

I am no BS expert, but two albums for me:

1. Mob Rules
2. Heaven and Hell.

THE man sings there after all! Simply unbeatable!

You are blind!!  :ninja: :nana:


Hail to The One...  you have exceptionally good taste!  :biggrin:
How much Sabbath material do you posess?  And which bits are your favourites?

To quote Rob Zombie: "Every cool riff has already been written by Black Sabbath. You're either playing it faster or slower or backwards, but they wrote it first."
...I couldn't agree more with this.

I love the first 8 (Ozzy albums), and the next 2 (Dio albums), I consider them to be 10 albums that constitute the absolute pinnacle of consistency and creativity in all music ever.  You can stick the debut album on and it sounds relevant even now, it's incredible to think that those songs are 38 years old!  The song structures to be found on the likes of Black Sabbath Vol 4 blew me away as a nine-year-old kid, and quite frankly the only things that have come close to reproducing that buzz are when I then went on to discover Sabotage, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Heaven & Hell and Mob Rules.

If I had to name myself the single best song in the history of music ever, then the only difficulty I would have is choosing which Sabbath song it would be...   Symptom Of The Universe?  Die Young?  Wheels Of Confusion?  Megalomania?  Falling Off The Edge Of The World?  Sabbath Bloody Sabbath?  Into The Void?  Under The Sun?  A National Acrobat?

To me, they all represent so much more than just songs... some of them spawned whole genres in their own right... and to think that even Mob Rules is now 26 years old!!  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, has come even close to that album in the last 26 years...  perfection!!   :biggrin:

...ahh, I like Sabbath.  :yeha:

The one song I don't particularly like?  Paranoid.  Such an over-played under-representative song - it's fun, but it masks the true genius of Sabbath.  As a kid I bought the Paranoid 7" single...  and it was good fun, but then I turned it over and played the B-side...  Snowblind just crushed me!!  The monster riff in the middle, the solos, the changes...   :wicking:

I am in danger of not being able to shut up!   So I'll just try and restrain myself now, and happily join in any additional Sabbath conversation that takes place.


bah...  Iommi is God!  :pop:

I've not got much Sabbath material on me, mainly downloads of their first 3 albums. (Which I want to buy, so badly!)
My favorite songs right now are "Black Sabbath", "The Wizard", "Electric Funeral", "Iron Man", "Children of the Grave" and "War Pigs"
And BTW, now looking at Geezer Butler, he is the bass god. :) (Or at least one of the major ones)

Well, you've started in the right place with their early stuff... if you like those albums, then you will surely find the development in Sabbath Vol4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage very pleasing...

...and Geezer Butler is definitely a Bass God!   :biggrin:  ...and a great lyricist too.

So maybe you would like Sabbath Vol4 next?  :wink2:

I've never listened to Black Sabbath - something that's a bit out of character for me, 'cause according to everything I've heard about them, they should be right up my alley.

Now... Now I got this sudden urge to mud wrestle with them. Downloading the first three albums as we speak... after that? Ah... who knows?


I've heard them through covers until know. Time for da shit 8)

I am finding it hard to keep them off my playlist.

So far I've got the first album on loop... it's been on loop ever since I downloaded it two days ago. I've yet to listen to the other two. Can't get rid of this one.

So yeah... I'm finding it right up my alley :ninja:

You know, I voted for 'Yogurt Creatures Need Love Too', but they went with this one.

It's okay, I guess.

NEWS:
My school band (with me on bass, of course) did a cover of "Children of the Grave" today.
I will put a video up on YouTube either on late Friday or early Saturday.

Early sabbath is superb. . .

I don't, yet, have the Dio years, but someday I'm sure I will.

There are some awesome covers out there too, like System of a Down's Snowblind, up there with the original. 
I have a version of Dickenson singing both Black Sabbath and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath live, pretty awesome.

War Pigs, Hand of Doom, Iron Man, The Wizard, Black Sabbath, Snowblind, Under the Sun. . . SO MANY AWESOME TRACKS!

I can't believe I've only just spotted this video!

Keep it up!! - it's great to see this track getting an airing from such a young band.


And I gotta say, the bass there was definitely the most convincing part.  :thumbup: :biggrin:


So you children of the world listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in spread the word today
Show the world that love is still alive, you must be brave
Or you children of today are Children of the Grave!
