I HEART RADIO ON DEMAND

Projected Bamboozle headliners this year, with maybe Green Day also at the top of the bill. I'll be sweating it out in the pit, as usual.

I don't know about God, but this band certainly is.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 4:11 PM

well.... it certainly could have been worse. pretty boring, though. and a far, far cry from their golden years (obviously). tony still sounds pretty good. but i wanna slap the shit out of whoever thought that was a good sound for the bass.

4:11 ftw

I am not the same poster, but i believe it is just returning to Meadowlands.

Also, I made it 5 minutes in. Enough for me.

Ah, nevermind, no bamboozle 2013. Thank God.

4:15...Rick Ruben?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 4:28 PM

Maybe i am listening to a completely different song then 4:15, but it is way better than I expected it to be. It is actually really good and not boring at all. Heavy and in the spirit of the first few records like they said it would be. Bass sounds fine. Sounds like Geezer. Excited now for the rest of the record. Nice surprise

that was awesome, classic Sabbath sound. Yeah it's not going to be a monumental album but a Black Sabbath record in 2013 isn't going to break any new ground

Not Sabbath without Bill.

Big gaps in this tour schedule. I see a NYC residency coming.

MY HEART RADIO ON DEMAND COULD CHOKE ON A BAG OF D...KS!!!

why didn't they just get vinnie appice to drum?? too expensive, you cheap f__ks!!! can't beat that iommi/geez combo. but vocals sound like they spliced it together from ULTIMATE SIN outtakes.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 5:12 PM

ALOT better than I thought it be

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 5:34 PM

^Yeah cause Brad Wilk is such a slouch drummer. Get a clue.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 5:35 PM

4:27, what does it matter? would you be forced to go if it were going on?

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 5:57 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 6:25 PM

Wilk has been on a few drum magazine covers. Hes versatile and respected. Sorry if he is not 65 years old.

Brad Wilk is a scab

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 9:17 PM

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 9:20 PM

Sounds like an out take from Lulu. not good.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 10:23 PM

Boring

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2013 10:25 PM

Sounds like nothing like the great first few albums.
More like neu metal.

I hear they're planning to perform "The Eternal Idol" album in its entirety on this tour...

Posted by Wallis | April 19, 2013 8:34 AM

8:34 made me giggle.

8:59 BODY COUNT IN THE HOOOUUUUSE

Posted by Seventh Star, Seven Pounds of Coke | April 19, 2013 10:07 AM

4:16- wow, are you easily amused.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2013 11:33 AM

Not bad, pretty ok actually, but not great.
Will these guys foster loud rock back to the pop world?

This is not too poppy, so if it hits the radio, there's possibility for loud rock bands in the indie and unsigned scene if they have stars in their eyes. Right now in this scene loud rock is knocking. Probably best for it to stay there.

If loud rock gets big again, it spells the beginning of the end of course. Remember your history!

The line to the beer tent/toilet is gonna be HUGE when they roll this lumbering turd out during the set.

Posted by killing the dragon...AGAIN | April 20, 2013 11:01 AM

So wait, Black Sabbath is now a christian metal band? Please let there be songs on the album that aren't telling us about Ozzy's happy sky father.. That shit is not metal.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2013 9:36 AM

Is this the Best Black Sabbath album? In my opinion it is, and I like all the other stuff (Ozzy, DIO, Gillan, Martin). But this is a fantastic work of art...
