Biography

Black Sabbath has been so influential in the development of heavy metal rock music as to be a defining force in the style. The group took the blues-rock sound of late '60s acts like Cream, Blue Cheer, and Vanilla Fudge to its logical conclusion, slowing the tempo, accentuating the bass, and emphasizing screaming guitar solos and howled vocals full of lyrics expressing mental anguish and ...

This album is brilliant, Truely brilliant to be honest I was a little dubious of this album when i heard that the original Black Sabbath omitting Bill Ward were reforming.

But how wrong was I as this delivers a triumphant return to form of their earlier albums.

The riffs from Toni Iommi & Geezer Butler, The moody lyrics & Ozzy Osbourne singing his best since his solo Down To Earth album.

It's a truely epic album with 8 long tracks on the standard album.

God is Dead is your typical Sabbath song great Riffs & a haunting tone that Sabbath write & perform so well.

This album will go down as a classic Black Sabbath album & proves what brillance these Brummies influence of Rock have & must never be underestimated.

Sheer Brilliance.

13 is (counter-intuitively) the nineteenth full-length studio album by the legendary British Heavy Metal band Black Sabbath. It was released in 2013 (which explains the album title). It was produced by Rick Rubin, and saw original singer Ozzy Osbourne return to the band for the first studio album in 35 years, and original bassist Geezer Butler return for the first studio album in 19 years.

Despite a very public campaign to have original drummer Bill Ward rejoin too, Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk provides the drums for this record, and despite having a different feel to Ward (and a very skeptical public), provides a very good performance.

It’s a very weighty album. Five of the album’s tracks are over seven minutes long each, and only one, the acoustic number ‘Zeitgeist,’ is less than five minutes in length. Its not really the sort of album you can just stick on in the background or take at face value, might take a few listens to really get to grip with what the band are doing here.

The record opens up with a very doomy, slow riff deliberately designed to evoke the self-titled opener of their debut. After about two minutes it kicks up a gear and gets livelier, slowly evolving through a few different moods and shedding comparisons to that eponymous track. There’s a few riffs that could be on the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Sabotage albums in there too, and an odd breakdown with the now famous line “You don’t want to be a robot ghost…” that wouldn’t actually be totally out of place on Technical Ecstasy or Never Say Die. There’s plenty of lead guitar action throughout, and the high-in-the-mix bass from Geezer brings a lot of character out.

Wow what a father's day present this was from my darling little daughter and who knew a new Black Sabbath album would turn out as good as this, I mean it is a given that people are excited about this album almost as much as it is a given that there will be a certain amount of backlash. Really the most we should have been hoping for is an OK album which we all could have played once, gone "ahh that's nice" and barely ever touched it again, what we have actually got is a rather good album worth quite a few spins and one that helps to reinvigorate their back catalogue (not that the early stuff needed it) you will probably find yourself listening to this with a smile and following up the listening experience by immediately playing a load of their old stuff not in annoyance but merely to add to the joy of finding the album to be good.

The album itself is Doom done properly, drenched in its blues originators; heavy and groove laden, fiery and soothing, engaging mind and body simultaneously. There is even a most welcome sludge topping which gives it a raw and untamed feel (even if it isn't really) the furiously overdriven sound reminds you that you are worshipping at the feet of masters of sound.

It remains to be seen if 13 will enter the ranks of classic Black Sabbath, obviously only time will tell, in my opinion it is a good contender and even if it doesn't reach those lofty heights I am sure it has legs enough to be a part of many end of year best of 2013 lists maybe even top 10, and is bound to re ignite interest in the bands earlier work as a whole new generation begins their Sabbath worship and 13 is a good place for newcomers to prepare for the rollercoaster journey into the past.

Back in August 2013, Classic Rock magazine rated the Black Sabbath back catalogue. (This is their opinion - I would probably have a slightly different selection, as no doubt would every Sabs fan.)
According to them top of the pile were "Essential Classics" - the first three albums and Heaven & Hell.
After this, "Superior - Reputation Cementing", including Vol 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage
Next came "Good worth exploring" including Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die.
Lastly, "Avoid" - Born Again and Forbidden.
So, where does 13 fit into this body of work. Is it Essential? No. Superior? Nope. Avoid? Definitely not.
That only leaves "Good". The issue I have with this album is that it has few memorable tracks even when you're playing it; it's all on one level sonically, no light and shade, no quiet beauty as on "Solitude" on Master of Reality, no respite from the constant battering. I can't help wondering what another producer could have done with this material. Patently Rubin was not the man for the job.
Will I be listening to this in a year's time, or thirty year's time as with the rest of the original Ozzy era? Probably not.
Hope that's not it for one of my favourite bands. Next time chaps, bring Bill along.
