Delivering an alternative to what The Beatles were offering in the late sixties, Black Sabbath turned the rock and roll music landscape on its head with a dark, macabre reflection of life and society. The groundbreaking progenitors of heavy metal music, Black Sabbath is among the most influential bands in history.
Black Sabbath came together around a core of guys with a common musical love of soul and blues-based rock and roll. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward first formed Earth Blues Company in 1968. A a year later, inspired by the German horror film of the same name – Black Sabbath was born.
Black Sabbath’s nuanced socio-political themes, often overlaid by dark, apocalyptic lyrics resonated with audiences around the world. These were strange, fraught days and Black Sabbath struck a chord. Their first album, Black Sabbath, was released in 1970 and resonated with audiences as an alternative to the more light-hearted rock and roll of the day.
There’s almost no way to quantify the number of bands who owe a debt to Black Sabbath. Mega bands such as Metallica, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest all found inspiration in Sabbath and the rock and roll genre was forever changed thanks to Black Sabbath’s arrival on the music scene.
