Black Sabbath Lyrics


Formed 1967, Birmingham, England

Mixing equal parts of bone-crushing volume, catatonic
tempos, and ominous pronouncements of gloom and doom
delivered in Ozzy Osbourne’s keening voice, Black Sabbath
was the heavy-metal king of the Seventies. Despised by rock
critics and ignored by radio programmers, the group sold
over eight million albums before Osbourne departed for a
solo career in 1979 [see entry].

The four original members, schoolmates from a working-class
district of industrial Birmingham, first joined forces as
Polka Tulk, a More...

Review about Black Sabbath songs
One of the greatest | Reviewer: Iyer
    ------ About the song IRON MAN performed by Black Sabbath

This song is definitely one of the ultimate rock songs which I have ever heard. And if you have been with a group of friends who have been listening to rock music for some years during your college days, you will know what I mean. It still gets me. Fabulous. Simply mind blowing.

    ------ About the song AFTER FOREVER performed by Black Sabbath

It's true, Black Sabbath were indeed a band of faith.
Despite substance abuse, they were very highly intelligent people. Only a cowardly imbecile would deny the existence of God. Heterophobic college professors have managed to corrupt some young minds into convincing them that there is no God. I pray for them that they wake up out of the haze they are put into by government corrupted curriculum.

We have to lead by example. If you still deny God, I suggest you grab ahold of your ears tightly and pull your heads fully out of your asses.

We have scientists make stuff from a cell, but we will never be able to actually create a cell from nothing. Inside the cell are life's building blocks. Only a supreme power could have ever created it.

God bless you all.

    ------ About the song INTO THE VOID performed by Black Sabbath

Such a fantastic song. Ozzy's vocals are brilliant and Iommi's solo at the end is just trademark Iommi. Although, I should point out that this song was infact written by Black Sabbath and not Ace Frehley

    ------ About the song AFTER FOREVER performed by Black Sabbath

in the days since ozzy first sang those lyrics to after forever they have only grown more relevant.smart phones are the gods of modern times. Children of the grave was better received by our parents it was a statement against Vietnam and our generation should take a listen nothing's changed except a lack of social commentary and progressive action

Classic | Reviewer: Rick R
    ------ About the song Sleeping Village/A Bit Of Finger performed by Black Sabbath

This song is the coolest. Black Sabbath, with it's British roots, endeavored into the heaviest of metals, at an age when young adults were frolicking in the sand, listening to the Beach Boys.

In this hit, Tony Iommi lays it down, with the 'Prince of Darkness' Ozzy Osbourne at the helm.

A blistering instrumental insert, highlights a 'journey' of the mind into uncharted waters.

I cannot urge you enough to listen to this masterpiece. This is where Heavy Metal started, without the need for speed, exceeding with style.

Enjoy--

underrated album | Reviewer: Tony in NC
    ------ About the song DISTURBING THE PRIEST performed by Black Sabbath

this album is AMAZING, but unfortunately it's crippled by a HORRENDOUS mix. Even Ian Gillan himself said that was NOT how it sounded in the studio monitors... it's been re-mastered, but it honestly needs a complete total re-mix.

My favourite | Reviewer: Aniruddha
    ------ About the song SYMPTOM OF THE UNIVERSE performed by Black Sabbath

Greatest riff in the history of metal. The Gods of heavy metal, it was all written by Tony from the start, all the other musicians just altered it and made sound even better, but for me nothing is better than this, love the vocals, bass, lyrics, drums, oh it's a bombshell.

NO DOUB ABOUT IT... | Reviewer: ANGEL ENRIQUE
    ------ About the song IRON MAN performed by Black Sabbath

I'M 40 Y/O. FOR SOME MEXICANS, GROWING UP IN THIS COUNTRY AND LOVE ROCK IN ALL IT'S FORMS (EXCEPT FOR THOSE WHO THING THAT JUSTIN BIEVER, AMY WHYNEHOUSE, ADELLE, BLACK EYE PEAS, COLDPLAY ET ALL PLAY AND SING ROCK, THEY DON'T!) IT ALMOST SUCKED. MUSIC WAS CONTROLED BY GOVERMENT, THEY DIDN'T WANT TO YOUNGSTERS WERE INFLUENCED BY THIS MUSIC, THTA'S WITH JUST SOME VANILLA MUSICA WAS GOING ON, TELEVISA ALSO CONTROLED THE ARTISTS AND WHAT YOU YOU WATCH AND LISTEN (NOW THEY DON'T GIVE A FUCK AND PROMOTE SHIT MUSIC FORM SHITY ARTRISTS, EVEN PRODUCE THEM}. BANDS LIKE THE BEATLES, ROLLONG STONES, THE DOORS, ETC. WERE ONLY LISTENED BY TEENAGERS WHO BOUGHT THE RECORD AND SMUGGLED INTO THE COUNTRY. ROCK WAS RELEGATED UNTILL AFTER 12:00 AM PROGRAMING IN RADIO. JUST A FEW KNEW ZEPELLIN, SABBATH, PURPLE, AND SOME JUST HEAR ROXY MUSIC, BOWIE, GENESIS OR PINK FLOYD. I GUES KISS WAS THE FIRST BAND AIRED DURING THE DAY, BUT IT WAS THE DISCO ERA, SO YOU ONLY HEAR "I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU". THEN THE 80'S HAPPEND AND HEAVY METAL BECAME MORE AND MORE ACCESIBLE, BUT NOT AS WE WISHED. WE HEARD AND WATCHED LTTLE VIDEO PROGRAMS AT LOCAL TV STATIONS. DEF LEPPARD, MOTLEY CRÜE, IRON MAIDE, JUDAS PRIEST, KROKUS, AC/DC, OZZY, THE BANDS QUOTED ABOVE, QUEEN, RAINBOW, DIO, VAN HALEN, SCORPIONS, WASP, ACCEPT, METAL WAS A PHENOMENOM. THEN HAIR METAL HAPPENED (WARRANT, WHITESNAKE, CINDRELLA, L.A. GUNS, SKID ROW, TESLA, POISON!, AND IT WAS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO HEAR; UNLESS IT WAS UNDEGROWND FLY MARKET STUF; METALLICA, SLAYER, VENOM, SODOM, KING DIAMOND, MEGADETH, SEPULTURA. THE MOVEMENT FADED HERE ALSO, LIKE IN THE U.S. IN THE 90'S, WITH UST A FEW BANDS STANDING IN FRONT OF POP: NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN, PEARL JAM, STONE TEMPLE PILTOS, ALICE IN CHAINS, METALLICA, GUNS'N ROSES, PANTERA. AFTER THE YEAR 2K, HELL RISES AGAIN AND NOW EVRYBODY LIKES SABBATH, AC/DC, MAIDEN, PRIEST. NEW GENERATIONS (THE 12 Y/O) HAD DISCOVERED THIS SONGS THANKS TO THE MOVIES, BUT IT HAPPENED TATT THEY ARE USED FOR COMERCIAL POURPOSES, BECAUSE THIS GREAT SONGS HAD LITTLE OR NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM. THE COMIC CHARACTER EXISTED FIRST THAN THE SONG. ANOTHR EXAMPLE IT'S JUDAS PRIEST'S "FREE WHEEL BURNING",IT WASN'T USED IN THE MOVIE "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS", BUT THEY TAKE THE FIRST PART OF THE SONG TO GIVE IT A NAME, I DON'T KNOW IF SOME PEOPLE HAD REALIZED IT. THE POINT IS THAT ROCK, THE TRUELLY MUSIC CALLED ROCK, CAN'T BE BEATED, ONE OF THE GREATES METAL SONGS OF ALL TIME, IRON MAN IS A PREMONITION OF WHAT WILL OCCUR TO MUSIC. IRON MAN IT'S ROCK, ON THE BEGUININIG IT WAS REJECTED:Is he live or dead? Has he thoughts within his head? We'll just pass him there Why should we even care?
THEN WAS BLAMED FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO SOME TRUBLESD KIDS: Nobody wants him He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance That he will soon unfold
THEN THE MUSIC WAS SAVED BY ROCK IN THE EARLY 90'S, ASK MILLY VANILLY AND VANILA ICE:"Now the time is here For Iron Man to spread fear Vengeance from the grave Kills the people he once saved
NOW EVRYBODY LIKES ROCK, NOBODY CAN RESIST: Heavy boots of lead Fills his victims full of dread Running as fast as they can Iron Man lives again!

Review for No stranger to love | Reviewer: Greg Tsatsanis
    ------ About the song NO STRANGER TO LOVE performed by Black Sabbath

One of the song for which I am proud to state that I am a great fan of Black Sabbath. Tony Iommi on the guitar spreads out the feeling of vanity in love but also the expurgatory feeling of not being the one to blame. The harmony and clarity of Hughes' voice makes it a great love song which can make you simultaneously feel sorrowful but also proud for your feelings.
