The forthcoming album from Black Sabbath, minus Bill Ward, will be called 13 and according to Ozzy Osbourne, the album’s “Satanic blues.”
Osbourne spoke about one of the band’s new tracks with Rolling Stone. “God Is Dead,” Ozzy says, “starts off, ‘God is dead,’ but at the end it says, ‘I don’t believe that God is dead.’”
That’s a great story Ozzy. Can I buy the fucking rights to it?
Interviews with Ozzy Osbourne are 25-percent factual information, 75-percent garbled, unneeded nonsensical blather. Trust me, I know from experience.
The album drops in June on Vertigo/Universal Republic in the U.S. and Vertigo in all other territories.
“I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums,” producer Rick Rubin tells Rolling Stone. “The first album wasn’t a straightforward heavy metal record. You could hear the jazz influence, so that was the goal, and to capture that live interaction.”
No Bill Ward = no respect.
