8 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Black Sabbath's second album is nothing less than a blitzkrieg of in-your-face attitude. The politically charged epic "War Pigs/Luke's Wall" sparks the attack with Bill Ward's hardcore drum thrashing. Ozzy Osbourne's distinctive Brummie wail carries songs like the raw and craggy "Iron Man" to metal anthem status. And as for the high-octane title track, legend has it that the band knocked it out in less than half an hour. Not bad for the cut that essentially created the template for thrash metal.

A Masterpiece

What can I say other than this is one of the best albums in history? This is defiantly a MUST HAVE for any true metal head. If you don't like this then there is something wrong with you. Best tracks are "War Pigs", "Paranoid", and "Iron Man".
