Do you even know how happy it makes me to get to talk about Black Sabbath right now? And I mean real, OZZY Black Sabbath! I was lucky enough to have seen this band with their original lineup, and it is the kind of show you never forget as long as you live. They rock, and seem to rock no less the older they get. Great news for fans like me. The band that helped define modern metal as we know it will be releasing a live album!
The album, called Gathered in Their Masses (a line from the War Pigs song) was recorded in Melbourne April 29th and May 1st of this year, and it set to be released on November 25th, with accompanying DVD. Live4Ever has the set list, for those curious as to what tracks will be on the album.
I would just like to take a moment to offer some kudos to these amazing Brit rockers. Black Sabbath made dirty, scary, intimidating rock music back when no one knew what to label it as, and many of the modern bands that play with distortion and feature ethereal and gothic lyric work, owe a great deal of debt to Black Sabbath.
I know what i’ll be doing on November 25 of this year. Do you?
