Black Sabbath week is coming

Next week will be Black Sabbath week. I will be doing a few album reviews, something about the importance of the band, something about the band after Ozzy and maybe something about favorite Sabbath songs.

Have you heard the news/rumor that Dio and the "other" members of Black Sabbath will be touring under the name Heaven and Hell? If this is true, it will be awesome!

Hopefully you will cover some Dio era Sabbath next week.

Fred-Yes, I have. Steve at Heavy Metal Addiction had that topic going last week and he had someone from a Sabbath site leaving comments as well. The only thing is that there will likely be better opportunities for them doing European festivals rather than anything they could get here in the states.

My plan is to review two Ozzy/ Sabbath albums and one Dio/Sabbath album. I am not sure which ones I will do yeat.

Fred - Go to for the updated info on the Heaven & Hell project. Joe Siegler, the webmaster, is well connected to the Sabbath and Dio camps so his info is what I listen to.

Mark - If you do anything along the lines of a Sabbath essay, please mention the Tony Martin era. It's always forgotten and it has some of the best post-Ozzy/post-Dio music. Very underrated.

Steve-I had thought about doing a post on Sabbath after Dio. If I do then I will mention Tony Martin. The thing for me is just that Sabbath after Born Again (which I don't like)is largely an Iommi solo project except for Dehuanizer which was a reunion album.

That will be GREAT. I'm looking forward to your BS thoughts.
