Ozzy Osbourne recording new album with Black Sabbath

Perhaps one of the most influential British bands of all time who pretty well patented a whole genre of music, Black Sabbath are readying a new album with original frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

The original line-up of the Birmingham metal legends are putting their first album together since 1978’s Never Say Die.

The news was confirmed by guitarist Tony Iommi who also said the band intend to tour it next year.

Guitarist Tony Iommi confirmed the news, and added the group are planning to tour again when the album is released next year. Iommi got together with Ozzy to write the album in June and promises a return to the classic dark original sound of Sabbath.

He teamed up with Ozzy to write new material in June.

He told the Birmingham Mail: ‘We’re really looking forward to it and I think the stuff we’ve been writing is really good.

‘It’s more back to the old original stuff.’

The legendary riffmaster teamed up with Ozzy to write new material in June. The only hitch to a full reunion is original drummer Bill Ward who is still not 100 per cent after a 1998 heart attack.

  1. Tony Iommi Black Sabbath reunion statement posted on his website:

    “Black Sabbath Reunion Speculation

    I’m saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Black Sabbath reunion.

    At the time I was supporting the Home of Metal exhibition and was merely speculating, shooting the breeze, on something all of us get asked constantly, “Are you getting back together?”

    Thanks to the internet it’s gone round the world as some sort of “official” statement on my part, absolute nonsense. I hope he’s enjoyed his moment of glory, he won’t have another at my expense.

    To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better.

    All the best, Tony”
