    Tony and Geezer proved with The Devil You Know that they've both still got it as composers. So here's hoping that Ozzy and Brad Wilk do a good job of backing them up. Also, if the fact that Rick Rubin is producing is to be taken as any indication of quality, it'll probably be at the very least a decent album.

    Some pretty cool sounding stuff from what I could hear on the video. Should be great so long as Rubin doesn't do what he did for Death Magnetic in terms of production (I'm still not over that: there was some good material on that album, but the production prevents me from wanting to listen to it).

    Fuck Ozzy sounds as awful as usual these days... too bad the awesome band he is singing for is letting him only for the respect for his lifelong work. Wilk is a a great rock drummer and is a heavy hitter so the music should be good.

    Sounds like old Sabbath with a bit of the Dio era mixed in. I'll have to give it a shot.

    Some old music mixed in with the new stuff on that teaser. F&ck Ozzy is a funny b*astard. I love his voice. I know some people don't, including an earlier comment to this thread but I just reckon his voice has this crazy, lunatic sounding quality to it. Love it. Hope this album is good.

    Because his contract didn't reflect the "dignity and respect" (and money) he thought he deserved.

    Yeah, but at implies both of those bands actually had a chance at making something good. Don't think it was Rubin's fault there.

    Well as long as he doesn't take the "make EVERYTHING loud" approach, I think the album will probably come out okay. Plus, Metallica's music lends itself to being mixed at a preposterously high volume, unlike Sabbath's. At least I think so. But then again, that statement depends on what their new music sounds like. Either way, Rick Rubin's track record prior to Death Magnetic and World Painted Blood speaks for itself.

    we're talking about the terrible production of that album by Rick Rubin not the songs in themselves.
