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 AMAZING!!!!! 18 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is simply amazing!!! In 2005, when the majority of Heavy Metal "Singers" try to sound like very angry monsters, it's a breath of fresh air to hear the passionate, powerful & soaring vocals of Tony Martin! Black Sabbath excell themselves here with an album of shear unadulteraded majestic POWER! Just listen to the way the track "Odin's Court" leads into "Valhalla!" If that doesn't send goose bumps all over your body & remind you of a time when men were strong & fearless...You must be emotionally dead!
This has to be my fave' album of all time! Fantastic!!!
Dan the Viking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven Really is In Black 20 Jan 2004
By Peestie
Format:Audio CD
This album deserves equally as much praise as Heaven and Hell or any of the other post-Ozzy albums and at least half of the albums with Ozzy. It is a fantastic album to enter the 90's which were generally missing any good Heavy Metal albums because of grunge.
The album has a Norse theme most of the way through and unlike it predecessor, Headless Cross, it hardly ever mentions Satan. Tony Iommi has some excellent riffs on this album, such as on "Anno Mundi", "Jerusalem" and "The Sabbath Stones". The riff from last of those three has got to be one of Iommi's heaviest, most brutal riffs ever, with Cozy Powell on drums adding something extra that only he can.
Tony Martin's vocals are once again excellent. Apart from Ozzy he recorded more albums with Sabbath than any other singer and deservses credit for his work. Personally I think he should be considered the voice of Black Sabbath as much as Ozzy, but due to the bands dip in popularity most people wouldn't even know that he sang for them.
There is no way that I can choose a list of tracks to say "These are the best" because they are all equally as good. Even the short instumental "The Battle of TYR" has its charms.
I honestly believe that TYR is one of the best Black Sabbath albums you could buy (dangerous words indeed) and is a must have for any Sabbath fan. It has everything you could hope for on a Sabbath album. Dark, heavy guitars, thumping drums, excellent bass and magnificent vocals and a gothic theme the whole way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sabbath fan NE England 22 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Sabbath crew really went out to create some of the heaviest tunes in metal with this album, while keeping it melodic with some sweet guitar playing in between.
Tony Martin is on top form and while the some songs are not as commercial than Headless Cross, they are certainly some of the most powerful Sabbath track from the riff masters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mastyrpiece 15 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An underrated gem from the end of the wonderfully bombastic and very uncool 80s period of heavy metal and hard rock. Many classic albums were forged in the decade; this will rightly never be classed as such but it began the troublesome and musically sterile 90s well. And it stands up pretty well today. As a fan of the Tony Martin era of Sabbath I am slightly biased but while never reaching the heady heights of much of their back catalogue it is a cohesive and serious collection of well written tracks.

'Anno Mundi' kicks it all off perfectly. I first heard this on a friend's sister's stereo in 1990 when I was still a wee teenager and the album was 'new'. Nobody at the time seemed to like it but the very chunky opener clinched it for me and I rushed out to buy the cassette (which was the preferred form of print back in the olden days). It's a classic in my eyes. 'The Lawmaker' on the other hand is not as good. It's ok but there are no hooks or anything outstanding to make it worth future listens. 'Jurusalem' is another strong contender for personal classic. It is catchy and heavy and perfectly 80s sounding. 'The Sabbath Stones' goes on a bit and is slightly better than just ok. 'The Battle of Tyr' is more of an interlude but it adds to the tone of the album which is consistent throughout. It's great theatre.

'Odin's Court' is a lovely 'kind-of' ballad, very short but again keeps the tone of the album well. And it segues straight into the awesome monster that is 'Valhalla'. This is another of the outstanding tracks here, but it is sadly the last. 'Feels Good to Me' is a nice little mid-paced rocker but it's not excellent. And 'Heaven in Black' is very good but lacks something that should have moved it into classic territory, especially with such a great title.

4.0 out of 5 stars The kingdom of Odin is the kingdom of gods... 2 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
While Ozzy Osbourne’s solo output had started leaning towards more commercial hard rock, Black Sabbath still relied on good old fashioned heavy metal in 1990. And while purists might quibble about the line-up, which featured not one but two former Whitesnake members (Cozy Powell and Neil Murray), and Tony Iommi remained the sole original member of the group, there is no arguing whether or not this is Black Sabbath: monumental guitar riffs, thundering drums, passionate vocals and lyrics full of mysticism are all essential elements of the classic Sabbath sound.

“Tyr” is best described as a semi-concept album based around old Norse mythology. Side 1 opens with the colossal “Anno Mundi”, featuring what is arguably the strongest riff on the album, and concludes with another 6-minute monster, the menacing “The Sabbath Stones”. Sandwiched between the two epics are two briefer numbers, “The Law Maker” (apparently the fastest Sabbath song ever) and the catchy “Jerusalem”, which would have made a worthy single.

Side 2 of the original album begins with the so-called “Tyr” trilogy, comprising of three songs in one: “The Battle Of Tyr” is a brief instrumental, which soon gives way to the acoustic “Odin’s Court”, a perfect showcase for Tony Martin’s undeniable vocal talents. The trilogy concludes with the pounding “Valhalla”, a good four and a half minutes of pure heavy metal. In these surroundings, the proceeding ballad “Feels Good To Me” (also released as a single) feels somewhat out of place. The album finishes with the upbeat “Heaven In Black”, a horrendous story about having one’s eyes poked out.

Vastly underrated and all-too often overlooked, “Tyr” is a more than worthy addition to an old school heavy metal fan’s record collection.
