Lately I've been really enjoying some Demons and Wizards. The band is a kind of mashup of the vocalist from Blind Gaurdian and the lead guitar of Iced Earth and probably one of the slickest metal projects Ive ever listened to.

They have some awesome covers that I've been listening to this week along with their original work:

New Black Sabbath album! Sounded like a good idea at first. All the original members... kinda. Ozzy on vocals again, Tony Iommi on guitar, Geezer Butler on bass, but no Bill Ward on drums. Instead, they had Brad Wilk from Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave as a "session drummer", whatever the hell that means. I guess he played drums for everything but doesn't get paid as much as the other three. Apparently Bill Ward had a disagreement about his contract or the payment or something and dropped out before recording. Another reason I thought it would end up being a decent album is because they had Rick Rubin producing it. Rick Rubin's done tons of albums, including work on a few Slayer albums, Danzig, Johnny Cash, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, AC/DC, ZZ Top, etc. Usually everything Rick Rubin touches turns to gold.

I've briefly listened to the whole album. It's been reviewed by many as being a return to their early sound, and I suppose it is, but it sounds a little... forced. I'm not hugely impressed with it so far. It seems like they've tried a little too hard to kinda copy their second album Paranoid, especially with the placement of the songs on the album. One song sounds like a WAY too obvious attempt to sound like the song Planet Caravan, complete with bongos, watery chorused vocals, and a clean guitar solo at the end. And then the very next song starts off with unaccompanied drums... just like Iron Man. And the placement of these songs would fall at the end of side A of a record if it were on a vinyl record... just like Paranoid.

Not that I'm really HUGELY surprised by any of this though. For quite a while now, Ozzy has fallen into the category with the rest of the aging elderly rockers where they've become more of a nostalgic novelty act riding on their own coattails and quite unwilling to do anything new and interesting for fear of pissing off their fans by doing something too unexpected. But the main reason I'm so unimpressed by this latest album is that I know they're capable of making much better music than this. Heaven & Hell was put out AFTER Ozzy left the band, and it was lightyears more advanced than anything they ever did with him around. And Tony Iommi has only gotten better as a guitarist since then. So I think they could've done something more interesting than this. But... the fans wanna hear some dumbed down simplified doomy riffs like back in the early 70's, so that's what they do.

Like I said, I've only given it a brief listen. It's not a bad album really, so I know I'll listen to it more. Maybe it's one of those albums that takes a few listenings to really get hooked on it.

/quote]

I listened to the song you posted and agree with much of your opinion. Bottom line: these guys see a chance to make some retirement money and the blood sucking record companies oblige. I was thinking about a good name if they so choose...we're ALL old geezers now  :P   When I was 14 or 15 (circa1975) in a record shop I saw an older guy from my school and asked him what is now an odd question, "Is Black Sabbath hard rock"? He chuckled and said "I guess you could say so". I immediately bought "Sabotage" on 8-track. When I got home and put it in for the first time, I was blown away. THIS is what I had been seeking.   :headbang:

I think I own a copy of everything they put out. When Ozzy first left, I thought it would be his loss. He put some really good bands together and showed me that he was more influential in Black Sabbath than I had thought. Saw him live not long after Randy Rhodes got killed and the replacement guitarist was bad to the bone (can't think of his name...). Someone threw a Confederate flag on stage and he tied it to the top of his mic stand. I still wish I could have seen Randy Rhodes live though.

Heaven and Hell was a VERY good album because I think Ronnie James Dio brought a fresh energy to the band and his voice fit when many others wouldn't.

As an aside, by best friend, band mate, and fellow Sabbath fan, used to wonder how Iommi could do those incredibly fast hammer-offs. As you probably know, he had part of his ring finger chopped off in a shop accident and wore a plastic prosthetic while playing. He could make that sucker bounce.

I immediately bought "Sabotage" on 8-track. When I got home and put it in for the first time, I was blown away. THIS is what I had been seeking.   :headbang:

In my opinion, and I guess in the opinion of the record purchasing public too, Sabbath started sliding downhill starting with Sabotage in 1975. It had a couple hits like Symptom of the Universe and Am I Going Insane, along with a couple of deeper cuts that were kinda cool. Then in 76, they bombed with Technical Ecstasy. I wasn't even born at the time, but considering I've never seen a single song from that record among any of the "greatest hits" albums I've ever seen, I don't imagine anything off that one ever saw any airplay at the time. Honestly, I didn't think it was a "horrible" album. I have an old copy of it on vinyl, and I still spin it from time to time. And as bad as a lot of people thought Technical Ecstasy was, it didn't hold a candle to Never Say Die. Holy fuckbeans on a bun, that album STUNK! I dunno what the fuck went wrong there, but it was just soooo boring and so NOT anything like their earlier stuff. I think that was around 78 or 79 when they all got more preoccupied with snorting coke and arguing than with writing anything. It was almost pop sounding. Thank god they decided to split ways after that one. Turned out to be the best move for both parties. Sabbath ended up snagging Dio to make one of the best hard rock/metal albums of all time with Heaven and Hell, and Ozzy ended up with Randy Rhoads and they basically gave birth to the fusion of classical and metal. Sure, that ended up bringing us the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, a regrettable unfortunate consequence, but I think Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman earns more than enough forgiveness for him. :D


You know, through the years on this board I have noticed that we agree on a variety of things......not all... but many. Kinda scary ....   :ubershock:
Technical Ecstasy had a couple of killer tracks mixed with filler material. By the time Never Say Die came out I think Ozzy had said (along with other members) that they were just going through the motions and fulfilling a record contract.

One funny anecdote, after I listened to "Hole in the Sky" it linked me to other Sabbath songs. Long, long, ago in a far away place, the first time I did acid my buddy played "Children of the Grave" for me on his FINE stereo.  It was "an experience", to say the least.   :shifteyes:

I noticed no one mentioned Ummagumma! One strange, and at times boring album. Two records with four sides - one side for of each of the members. Who else but Pink Floyd would name a song "Several small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict"?

Fader, I think you mentioned the Flaming lips recently. If so, have you heard "The Terror"? You will really like it or hate it.....as a whole, I like it very much.

If you remotely like the Flaming lips, listen to Mercury Rev(.)

i havent listened to ummagumma, but i heard it had one awful studio album, and one absolutely amazing live album.

Fader, I think you mentioned the Flaming lips recently. If so, have you heard "The Terror"? You will really like it or hate it.....as a whole, I like it very much.

i heard it's alot more depressing than anything flips have ever made. also heard its a real grower on you, but since i havent even listened to yoshimi or embryonic or heady fwends, it might be a long time before i actually form an opinion on it. :x

I didn't like any of their earlier stuff either. 1971's Meddle was decent. Dark Side of the Moon kicked ass obviously. Wish You Were Here was good. Animals was EXCELLENT, a little short with the number of songs, but it was about a 40-45min long album, and still very good. The Wall was a fucking masterpiece.

lol animals had 5 songs on it, and 3 of them were over 10 minutes long. they also had alot of these weird interludes in between those songs, like with the beginning of time on dsotm or on the run. didn't really like all that filler in there that much. come to think of it, i havent listened to the wall in quite a while, so i might like it more the second time around but meh, i probably wont even get around to it.

They were a band best suited for the progressive rock genre of the 70's. The mid-80's hit and they started trying to incorporate the synth sounds from that era, then they also started using more modern percussion techniques... shit like drum samples... and they approached drumming differently too.

pink floyd was just the most commercially successful prog-rock band from that time. it was bands like king crimson that sorta started off as a major influence in the genre, who were one of the first bands to make use of the mellotron, which was used by pretty much every single prog rock band in the 70's-80's. they were also probably one of the most experimental bands too, starting off with softer albums such as itcotck and in the wake of poseidon, moving to more experimental grounds on albums like red and larks tongues, and even to new wave music on discipline and beat.

They took several years to FIND that formula, and there was still plenty of room left for experimentation and creation within those boundaries. It was a successful formula, and they should've stuck with it longer than they did.

idk, i feel like some bands reach a point where they should've stopped a long time ago, like the beach boys or rush. a bunch of 70 year olds getting up on a stage performing songs like they're in their 20's, rofl.
