Black Sabbath - New Album Update


Almost a year after announcing their reunion, Black Sabbath are currently in the studio working on their first new album with Ozzy Osbourne in 34 years at Shangri La Studios in Malibu.

According to Metalinjection, Ozzy is recording vocals with Rick Rubin. There are 15 songs that have been written, and according to Geezer Butler, 12 of them will make the record, most likely with the additional three serving as bonus tracks for different special editions.

Guitarist Tony Iommi completed all 15 guitar tracks during the band's sessions in England earlier this year. Ozzy and Geezer are working to complete the tracks in five song increments, with the first five being worked on currently.

Ozzy is tracking vocals, with bassist Geezer Butler writing all the lyrics. One song title has been confirmed and it is "God Is Dead".

Haha, "God is Dead" - nice one. Has to have been alive first to then die but we all know he doesn't even exist.

Who's playing drums on this since Bill Ward pulled out? Vinnie Apiece?

I know Tommy Clufetos is handling the live shows, so he might be doing the album as well. It doesn't make much sense to me. Granted, Vinny Appice probably has his hands full with Kill Devil Hill, but even so, this is Black Sabbath we're talking about. They could literally have absolutely any drummer at all in the entire world of Metal that they ever wanted, and they picked Tommy Clufetos. Not Dave Lombardo, not Flo Mounier, not Lyle Cooper... oh well.

Good news, here's hoping this won't be them just beating a dead horse.

Never heard of him. Maybe he's cheap? Could they have gotten Hellhammer?

Tommy Clufetos? He's played with Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne before he did Black Sabbath.

I still don't see why the fuck they couldn't just get Bill Ward back too. Seriously, the fact that they let money get in the way of things is fucking sad.
