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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sabbath`s Finest Moment 5 Mar 2006
By JT
Format:Audio CD
This is beyond doubt BS`s finest moment. Iommi has the best guitar sound he ever got on record. Martin Birch`s production is flawless. He made sure that the band had great sounds something that is sadley lacking on all Sabbath`s earlier recordings. Dio gives one of the finest vocal performances on a Heavey Rock/Metal album ever. Check out "Neon Knights" for proof of Dio`s abilitys. Sabbath never sounded so complete as they do on this album. Dio`s vocals gave the rest of the band a new lease of life & insperation & it showed. "Die Young" was the single at the time & shows Sabbath using Keyboards to great effect. "Heaven & Hell" is still one of the best Metal songs ever written. "Walk Away" has one of the most commercial overtones to it Iommi ever wrote. "Children Of The Sea" has one of those glorius Dio lyrics, " On a misty morning, On the edge of time reaching for the stars we blind the sky". There`s not a bad track on this album & in a strange way all the tracks show slightly different aspects to Sabbath. By the time the tour got to the UK cracks were starting to show. Mob Rules wasn`t the follow up that had been hoped for & Dio split in acrimoney to form his own band. But this album still stands testomony to what was even for a short while the finest Metal band around with one of the truely classic albums of all time...."The world is full of kings & queens, who blind your eyes & steal your dreams...it`s Heaven & Hell" Buy now

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Heaven actually 14 Sep 2001
By Supertzar TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
A huge return to form - rejuvenated by pint sized wonderthroat Ronnie James Dio exactly as Purple had been by David Coverdale a couple of years earlier. Neon Knights and the title track are classic straightforward Sabbath, Children of the Sea, Die Young and Lonely is the Word married this riff-fest to the drama of Dio era Rainbow beautifully. Iommi's guitar playing takes another step forward here, and his solos throughout are the best of his career. His work on all of the above is almost operatic in scope, drama and fluency.

All together, this was Sabbath's most coherent, consistent and vital album, it showed the so called 'New Wave of British Heavy Metal' up for the spotty bed-wetters they really were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven & Hell - Sabbath Reborn!! 15 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Heaven & Hell marks a defining moment in the life of one of the premier rock bands in the world. In a post Ozzy era, Sabbath faced the challenge of not only seeking to keep their sense of direction, but also in their quest for a new frontman. However after a few phone calls - enter Ronnie James Dio, who having just left Rainbow, stepping into this formidable role with grace & stature. The album represents one of the finest rock banquet's of all time. A perfect blending of classic rock and mysticial imagery, that has become the Dio trademark. From the blistering opening of Neon Knights through to the classic anthem - Heaven and Hell, this album pulls no punches. Not only did the album breath new life into the band, it also attracted a whole new generation of Sabbath fans. Even after 20 years this album still feels as fresh as it did when it was first releashed. Heaven and Hell, although reveals the band in a new musical light, would give Sabbath a new lease of life that they have enjoyed ever since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't speak highly enough about this album 19 Jan 2013
By Welshie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Never been a massive fan of Black Sabbath as Ozzys singing wasn't always up to much. Loved to listen to Ronnie James Dio with Rainbow so decided to give this album a go. Fantastic. Ronnie's singing is perfect alongside Tony's wonderful guitar playing. And have to say I'm very impressed with bass playing by Geezer Butler. Some great songs and this album was a steal for 5.00.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail of Heavy Metal! 26 Sep 2005
By Ed
Format:Audio CD
Well if this isn't the biggest come back since Jesus then I don't know what is. After two decidedly non-metal albums 1976's Technical ecstasy (which is without doubt the weakest album of the original line-up) and 1978's Never say die, Sabbath returned with new singer, Ronnie James Dio and made not only one of the best albums of their career but one of the best metal albums.

This was the album that introduced me to Ronnie James Dio, and of course he is one of the finest singers of all time but completely different and therefore not comparable to Ozzy. Because of Dio being in the band he has a great impact on the sound and style, and for the first time on a Sabbath record Geezer Butler doesn't handle any of the lyrics, he just plays some phenomenal bass (no change there then). Heaven and Hell is the only Dio era Sabbath album to feature Bill Ward on drums, but as with the rest of the band he gives an amazing performance and shows just why he's one of the best drummers around. As with all Sabbath albums Tony Iommi writes the music and absolutely slays the competition with his rhythm and lead work. Also of note is that this is the first time Geoff Nicholls provides keys (which are never overpowering but simply provide subtle textures ever once in a while) and the first time producer extraordinaire Martin Birch worked with Sabbath giving everything a crystal clear yet heavy sound.

The songs on the Heaven & Hell album are really something special absolute metal classics. Children of the Sea, Neon Knights, Heaven and Hell and Die Young are among the best Sabbath ever wrote. On the whole the song writing is excellent only the slightly sub par Walk Away lets the side down.

So in Conclusion, This is one of the best albums ever, not that the Ozzy only fools would tell you so, they called it Black Rainbow, but listen and see that this is nothing but pure Black Sabbath.
