Head banging, heavy metal band Black Sabbath has recently confirmed just this morning that they are reuniting.
News of this iconic rock band reuniting, a band that set standards for the future rock bands to come, is huge–especially since they are pulling things together with the original four members.
For guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Terence “Geezer” Butler, drummer Bill Ward, and of course legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, this reunion isn’t the first. It will be the third time the band has attempted reuniting, after the first time in 1985 and again a decade later.
The welcomed reunion is even a bigger deal after the band announced not only a new album, but also a worldwide tour after a headlining act at the Download Festival at Donington Park in England.
After 43 years and 18 albums, saying that this is long-awaited and one of the most epic heavy metal events of the year is an understatement. Black Sabbath has been considered one of the most “influential rock bands of all time”, considered to be among the same ranks as Led Zeppelin, and according to Rolling Stone, “changed music forever”. We can only expect great things in the year to come.
