Black Sabbath - Live Gathered in Their Masses [Blu-ray]2013

Black Sabbath is an English heavy metal band formed in 1968 in Birmingham,
West Midlands, England, United Kingdom, originally comprising Ozzy
Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass), and Bill
Ward (drums). In the early 1970s they were the first to pair heavily
distorted, sonically dissonant blues-rock at slow speeds with lyrics
about drugs, mental pain, and abominations of war, thus giving birth to
generations of metal bands that followed in their wake. They are often
credited with creating the heavy metal genre as well as the doom metal

Black Sabbath was formed in Aston, a poor district of Birmingham
damaged by bombing during World War II, under the name Polka Tulk Blues
Band (soon shortened to “Polka Tulk”), later Earth. Initially a
blues-rock band, Earth moved in a darker direction when the band,
especially bassist Geezer Butler, being fans of the black magic novels
of Dennis Wheatley, tried to make music to have the same effect as a
horror movie or novel. Ozzy Osbourne wrote the lyrics to the second song
they wrote together, “Black Sabbath” (the song name was inspired by a
1963 Mario Bava film), and Tony Iommi wrote a riff based on the tritone,
sometimes called “Diabolus en Musica” (“the Devil in Music”). Later in
their careers, Geezer Butler would write most of the lyrics to Black
Sabbath songs In their Last Supper concert film, the band stated that
the song is based on an experience Geezer had one night when he saw a
black object at the end of his bed and noticed the next day that an
occult book Ozzy had given him was missing. When the band found
themselves being confused with another local band called Earth, they
adopted the song title as their new name.

As the band evolved, they added more European folk elements and gothic
flourishes to their sound, which was unlike any other group during their
time. Their lyrics dealt with darker issues than most conventional
rock. Towards the late 1960s, bands were into the peace movement and the
dying hippie culture, whilst Sabbath chose to distinguish themselves by
dealing with heavier issues; the occult, war, apocalypse, drugs, and
gothic storytelling. Their music also conveyed a sense of anger and
anti-establishment, the likes of which had not been heard before.

It was this mix of dark lyrical themes and a slower, ominous sound that
made Black Sabbath a significant element in the genre that would later
be known as heavy metal.

Despite their doom-laden image, much of the group’s early material
featured acoustic guitars, piano, symphony orchestras, keyboards, and
even horns. After the band’s first four albums, the group became
increasingly psychedelic, experimental, and progressive, leaving much of
their dark metal roots behind. The last two Osbourne-fronted albums,
Technical Ecstasy (1976) and Never Say Die! (1978) left a lot of fans
dissatisfied with the band, as drugs and alcohol abuse began to take its
toll on each member.

Osbourne was fired in 1978 for becoming increasingly unstable and
unwilling to work with the material that, by this time, Tony Iommi was
writing more or less entirely himself. Osbourne started a highly
successful solo career in 1980.

In 1979 Tony Iommi recruited former Rainbow members; singer Ronnie
James Dio and bassist Craig Gruber. Gruber was recruited because Geezer
Butler was unhappy with Osbourne’s departure, and was rumoured to have
quit the band. Gruber was dismissed and Geezer rejoined. Black Sabbath’s
first album with Dio, Heaven and Hell, proved to be a success, and saw
the band’s highest American charting since 1975’s Sabotage. It was on
this tour that Dio popularised the “devil horns” hand gesture, which has
since become a symbol of heavy metal music in general. The album also
marked the inclusion of Quartz’s guitarist-turned-keyboardist Geoff
Nicholls (Nicholls has not been consistently credited as an official
member, and has always been forced to play live shows from off stage
(except on the Seventh Star tour in 1986 where he played on stage)
supposedly for aesthetic reasons, but he has co-written many songs and
has stayed with Black Sabbath through all subsequent incarnations, until
he finally left in 2004. Adam Wakeman, son of Rick Wakeman, took over
in 2005). Also during the tour, drummer Bill Ward quit the band for
personal reasons (both his parents died within a rather short period,
and Ward was struggling with alcoholism and other addictions). Drummer
Vinny Appice joined to complete the tour and then record the next album
Mob Rules, in which an early version of the title track appeared in the
film Heavy Metal.

Ronnie James Dio and drummer Vinny Appice left the band after supposed
disputes concerning the mixing of the live album Live Evil, and pursued a
solo career together. Black Sabbath re-enlisted drummer Bill Ward, and,
along with ex-Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan (who agreed to join the
band whilst heavily intoxicated), released Born Again in 1983. It
reached a respectable number two in the U.K. music charts, a success not
seen since Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, ten years previously. However, the
album was not received particularly fondly by critics or fans alike, and
not even by singer Ian Gillan. The tour that followed was to provide a
wealth of material for the spoof documentary on rock ‘n’ roll culture,
Spinal Tap. Drummer Bill Ward was still recovering from poor health and
so did not tour for the Born Again album. Instead, fellow Brummie Bev
Bevan, formerly of The Move and The Electric Light Orchestra, took to
the drumstool for the tour obligations.

Once the tour was over, Ian Gillan left the band to rejoin his Mk.2
Deep Purple band mates. From here on the line-ups of Black Sabbath
changed relentlessly, with Tony Iommi being the only constant member.
Between 1986 and 1995 Black Sabbath released 7 studio albums and one
live album, including a reunion album with the Mob Rules line-up (1992’s
Dehumanizer). In 1997 the original line-up reunited for a proper world
tour (as opposed to the one-off Live Aid in 1985, and Costa Mesa gigs on
Ozzy’s “Farewell” tour in 1992) and have toured on and off since.

In 2007, following the official disbanding of Sabbath in 2006, the Mob
Rules line-up reunited under the banner Heaven & Hell and toured in
support of Black Sabbath - The Best of: The Dio Years featuring three
new tracks and a release of Black Sabbath Live at the Hammersmith Odeon,
1982. They released a live CD/DVD and released a studio album of
entirely new songs in April 2009. Ronnie James Dio died from stomach
cancer in 2010, his Heaven & Hell album being the last of his studio
performances. Neon Nights: Live at Wacken was released the following
year on CD/DVD.

On 11th November 2011, the original line-up of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony
Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward hosted a press conference in which
they stated they would be touring once more and recording their first
album together since 1978’s Never Say Die! However, the tour was
radically reduced in scale as Iommi sought treatment for Lymphoma. In
early 2012 Bill Ward publicly stated he would no longer be involved in
the upcoming tour and album as he had been offered an “unsignable
contract”. Tommy Clufetos (Ozzy Osbourne, ex-Firewind, ex-Rob Zombie,
ex-Alice Cooper) was asked to to join for touring obligations. Black
Sabbath selected Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk to record on
their nineteenth album “13”.

VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” ranked them second, behind
Led Zeppelin. They were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and
the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Aside from being arguably the first heavy metal band, Black Sabbath
also directly influenced many later metal sub-genres with their sound
and imagery. Examples can be seen especially in doom metal and stoner
metal, which are directly descended from Black Sabbath’s original sound,
with songs such as “Black Sabbath”, “Into the Void”, “Hand of Doom” and
others showcasing Black Sabbath’s staple doom sound. Other sub-genres
influenced by Sabbath’s sound also include speed metal and thrash metal
on the opposite side, “Paranoid” and “Symptom of the Universe” are
considered early examples of these genres. Black Sabbath’s lyrical use
of hell, death, Satan and horror as imagery also greatly influenced
heavy metal, as these themes are prevalent in nearly all heavy metal

In December 2008 Iommi filed a lawsuit against merchandise company
LiveNation for continuing to use the Black Sabbath name and Tony Iommi’s
likeness to sell merchandise, even after their contract had ended. On
May 26, 2009 Osbourne filed suit in a federal court in New York against
Iommi alleging that he illegally claimed the band name. Iommi noted that
he has been the only band member for the full forty one years of the
band, and that his bandmates relinquished their rights to the name in
the 1980s, therefore claiming more rights to the name of the band.
Although, in the suit, Osbourne is seeking 50% ownership of the
trademark, he has said that he hopes the proceedings will lead to equal
ownership among the four original members.
