Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

For many dyed-in-the-denim metal fans, The Devil You Know will not be considered the debut album by a band called Heaven And Hell: it will be greeted as nothing less than the return of Black Sabbath--specifically, the incarnation of Sabbath fronted by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio following Ozzy Osbourne’s sacking in 1979, who debuted with an album named Heaven And Hell the following year. Dio remains a divisive figure in the Sabbath annals, his full-lunged thespian delivery and schlocky, swords-and-sorcery lyrics likely to separate the metalheads from the day-trippers. The band themselves, though--Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and drummer Vinny Appice--make a good showing, with Iommi on particularly strong form, whether dispensing sludgy, lead-heavy riffs on "Fear" or unleashing terrific wah-wah solos on "Eating The Cannibals". A largely heavy set, "Bible Black" is notable in its use of light and shade, beginning from a mournful, acoustic introduction strafed with high notes that dissolve like shooting stars, and finding its groove as a burly, slow-paced rocker that sounds like it could bound canyons. -- Louis Pattison

Back in the late nineties after a short lived reunion tour with Ozzy which as far as im aware spawned only a live album and an exhaustive supply of fresh compilations, Black Sabbath were on a collision course with the bottom of the barrel, which as a result might well have spelled the end for them.

Luckily what turned out, as is currently Heaven and Hell; Is a rebranded Sabbath, a fresh start, and a shake-off with all that controversy that plagued them through the Martin years. with a 3rd dio reunion and a live concert "Live at Radio city hall" in 2007 which was umbelievable! they continued on, and today after picking up my copy at 9.00, and listening to it all day i have come to the conclusion that we already may have a Metal album of the year on our hands and it's still only April.

Heaven and Hell, "Devil you know" is Sabbath through and through, an absolutely scorcher of an album, which breezes past pretty much everything they had done since Mob Rules right the way back in 1982, complete with the usual trademark Sabbath cymbal crashes, pummeling riffs and thuddering Bass it is you may note a very heavy album (even discounting the high volume recording technics and distortion so commonly used these days) and so often blamed on poor sound quality. No such problem here it sounds awesome.

The tracks are all excellent with no obvious weak numbers, which is as we have come to expect. Obviously everyone has their favourites, but mine are "Bible black" "Double the pain" and "Eating the cannibals" however only my small margins as all the songs are of such a high standard as it is a combined effort, the listener is unlikely to be reaching for the skip button.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Into Rock 'N' Roll Heaven 27 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
After Ozzy Osbourne's dismissal from Black Sabbath, the iron-lunged, swords and sorcery-obsessed Ronnie James Dio joined the band and helped to create an entirely different vibe altogether, on the well-recieved Heaven and Hell album. A solid follow-up, The Mob Rules (on which drummer Bill Ward was replaced by Vinnie Appice) was then followed by a break-up of this Sabbath v2 lineup, until 1992 when they reunited to create the dark, heavy Dehumanizer. Since the lack of creativity the original line-up experienced when they reunited and attempted to create an album was frustrating, the classic Dio-era group is back together (albeit prevented from being called Black Sabbath legally by the Osbourne camp).

The album they have created here is a mouth-watering proposition for any die-hard Black Sabbath fan, especially if they enjoyed the new tracks on 2007's compilation, The Dio Years. The first six tracks on this ten track album are heavy and mid-tempo, showing traits of the classic Black Sabbath of old. Single Bible Black is one highlight, beginning with a calm, acoustic intro (quiet moments are few on this record, unusual in comparison to older Sabs albums) with Dio's masterful vocals before blasting into full heavy riff mode. Things change up a bit when Eating The Cannibals begins, Appice's thundering drums going at a faster pace along with the rest of the band on a song that is this record's Neon Knights or Turn Up The Night. The 7 minute tour-de-force that is Breaking Into Heaven is a great way to close the record.

Tony Iommi sounds as if he is releasing a creativity that he has desperately been trying to unleash for some years (which seems to be true). On The Devil You Know he creates some of his heaviest and most doom-laden riffs ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back to Sabbath 4 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
I remember the huge impact Sabbath had when Ronny James Dio joined and got Sabbath post Ozzy back on the road again.
They were back then, and well they're back again now!

This has got to be the best Sabbath album for a couple of decades. It's the best thing since Reunion at least and probably the best studio album since Mob Rules ( but then I quite like Born Again )

As Ozzy becomes more and more, dare I say it, the "Widow Twanky" of Metal, Tony and the guys turn up with this stonking and awesome album

Just buy it ! dont read anymore reviews, just buy it!

Awesome guitars (as you would expect) great driving riffs, and this time some really quite spectacular lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than the sum of its parts. 22 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Oh my. This album dug its steel-tipped claws into my soul the first time I heard Dio wail out, "Don't go on, put it back! You're reading from the Bible Black!" And it hasn't yet let go.

This album is amazing. The riffs are stunning, and cry out to be played - and listened to - live. In fact, Heaven & Hell have shot to the top of the list of bands I NEED to hear live. Dio sounds as good as I've ever heard him - his voice is different to how it was in Rainbow and Black Sabbath, but it's still an absolute pleasure to listen to and, in fact, has turned me into a solid Dio fanboy. He really does sound amazing here.

What also impressed me about this album was that Iommi isn't playing ON TOP of the guitar and bass, but WITH them, which makes his solos really impressive, even though they might not be works of art like some of the other guitar virtuosos, such as Blackmore.

There are some dull tracks on here that I can't listen to individually. However, the whole album hangs together exceptionally well, and listened to as a whole, it blew me away. Standout tracks, for me, are Bible Black, Neverwhere, and Eating the Cannibals - but if you really want to do the album, and yourself, justice, then you need to listen to all of it!
