Reseña de álbum

It's almost a blessing that, for legal reasons, this four-piece can't call itself Black Sabbath. It only serves to hammer home the point that with Ronnie James Dio up front and Vinny Appice in back, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler express a very different side of their musical personalities than they ever did with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals and Bill Ward on drums. Where the original lineup was an ultra-heavy blues band, with a rhythm section that never failed to swing (OK, they failed a little bit on "Sweet Leaf"), when Dio came on board in 1980 the group was reinvented as a heavy metal juggernaut. While Iommi's riffs remained crushingly heavy, the rhythms got faster on songs like "Neon Knights," "Turn Up the Night," and "Mob Rules," and the lyrics abandoned the earthly concerns of "Paranoid" and "Hand of Doom" for Dio's abstract symbolism and myth-making. These differences became more stark with each album (Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, and 1992's reunion disc Dehumanizer), and now, The Devil You Know confirms once and for all this lineup's unique take on the genre it helped invent.

This is a heavier album than any of its three predecessors; whether it's due to the bandmembers' advancing age or the influence of anxieties felt throughout the world outside the studio, it's the closest in spirit to the first two Black Sabbath albums, themselves forged in the psychic darkness that was the tail end of the 1960s. It's not until "Eating the Cannibals," track seven of ten, that the band revs into high gear the way it did on "Neon Knights" and "Turn Up the Night" 20-plus years ago. The songs that begin the album, and make up the bulk of its running time, are like slow-motion avalanches, Iommi's riffs and Appice's drumming punishing the listener like medieval monks scourging unbelievers. Dio's lyrics, too, seem to embody an almost Old Testament world-view, positing a universe of darkness, fire, and despair. His voice is as powerful as ever, but he's no longer offering self-esteem lessons the way he once did; he seems consumed by fear and doubt. This gives The Devil You Know a feeling of genuine doom that leaves little opportunity for the catharsis provided by classic heavy metal. While the Osbourne-fronted and Dio-fronted versions of Black Sabbath are, again, very different bands, this is an album that matches its moment every bit as perfectly as Paranoid did back in 1970.

Sure, Iommi, Butler & Sabbath invented heavy metal while Dio became one of its greatest voices of all-time, but that doesn't mean that, after all these years, they're still going to be releasing amazing new albums. After all, what they've already created is enough to justify their legacy and who am I to complain if they simply chose bask in the glow of their past brilliance. And yet, in 2009 with the average age of its band members coming in at a hefty 60 years of age (yes, 60!), Heaven & Hell have released one of the strongest, deepest, heaviest albums of their vast collective works to date. "The Devil You Know" is one head banging, riff-frenzied collection of songs. Sure, maybe it could have used another barn-burner like "Eating the Cannibals" earlier in the album to break the tempos up a bit but that's getting pretty picky. Overall, the band displays finesse and style throughout the entire album; never burning too brightly on one song only to fall flat on their face on the following track. Seriously, this album is one amazing song after another. Buy this album and be prepared to hear the old school teach the new school a thing or two about the music they brought to this earth.

Amazing Album from Sabbath/Heaven & Hell

I've been listening to Sabbath since 1970..I have everything they ever made and this album is one of my favorites. DIO is in his mid to late 60's and he STILL sounds incredible! the guy must have made a deal with the devil ( no pun intended ), Tony Iommi still has the chops and Geezer and Vinny are the backbone of the band. First off the production is amazing DIO's vocals are in your face and the Bass and drums are deep and loud, but clear. Everysong on here rocks, of course there are slow plodding "Sabbathesque" songs on this album and there should be. If you love the first Heaven & Hell album your going to love this album...The highlights for me are: Double the pain Rock n roll Angel Bible Black Eating the Cannibals Follow The Tears.. One of the best albums of 2009!

1st Sabbath cd since 95, yeah that's right Sabbath. A metal epic masterpiece. ALL HAIL IOMMI!

Guess I shouldn't be surprised anymore. For as long as my life, Sabbath has continued to bring me smiles with riffs and songs. This cd blew away my expectations nicely. I call this the 1st studio Sabbath album since 95. They could call themselves "A*s" and it wouldn't matter. This is just a kick a*s metal cd made by the godfathers of metal doing it better than many youngsters out there! And again Mr Iommi and Butler prove that Sabbath is and always has been them, especially Tony. The petty legal wrangling over the name of the band is enough proof of which side is which. Ozzy sang genius lyrics for a period of time. The songs and riffs that will live on were created by Gods Butler and Iommi. Get this NOW!
