... Yep. Good ol' Black Sabbath. What are your opinions on Black Sabbath? Favorite albums? Songs? I personally adore Black Sabbath, both the Ozzy and Dio versions. My favorite album would have to be Paranoid, or Never Say Die. My favorite songs are Symptom of the Universe, Children of the Grave, Never Say Die, Paranoid, War Pigs, and Changes.

Ill stick with Born again as the best Sabbath album, Ozzys singing doesent do it for me anymore, used to really like them ten years ago or so but cant stand him anymore. Gillan is absolutely superior

The debut is a pretty good choice regardless. Sabbath are worth checking out through to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath/Sabotage (can't remember which precedes the other right now but the later one is what I m

Re: Black Sabbath

I like Sabbath, especially with Dio. I hate Ozzy's voice, however. He used to ruin his era Sabbath for me, but since then, I've gotten over it and ignore him. Everybody knows Sabbath with Ozzy and Dio. How does everyone feel about Tony Martin, Ian Gillan, and Glenn Hughes?
What about Iommi aswell :) he's up there too

Re: Black Sabbath I am a big Ian Gillan fan, "The Dark" and "Zero the Hero" are both excellent songs - but I am a bigger Deep Purple fan, have all their albums, but only two Sabbath albums :? Dio is also amazing, but I prefer him in Dio and Rainbow as opposed to Sabbath - Ozzy is Sabbath, the other vocalists just didn't sound right in general, just had an occasional wow song.

Re: Black Sabbath Song: HEAVEN & HELL @ (Original: Black Sabbath -> Twitter: @OfficialSabbath) - but this time interpreted by the former BS-Lineup Iommi/Butler/Dio/Appice as a brand new formation simply called "Heaven & Hell" too (Twitter: @hvnandhelllive) ! This is the absolute best Live-Version ever, IMHO (recorded @ Radio City Music Hall, NYC) ! I will defiitely recommend this alternate version : -> http://bit.ly/n24qTI ! More Band Information can be easily found here: -> http://bit.ly/rfUVya ! Unfortunately RJD passed away & the band disbanded themselves after a last memorial show ! HYLI (BTW: Ronnie James Dio has invented/created this globally known sign -> \m/ - the so-called "Devil's Horn" -> R.I.P.) ! - LD -

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
