Black Sabbath / Technical Ecstasy Super Deluxe

Black Sabbath / Technical Ecstasy Super Deluxe

Black Sabbath’s Technical Ecstasy was a bitter pill for fans to swallow. The band was no longer hungry, most of them had nothing left in the can. Drugs had taken over the band and the music suffered. Sabbath strayed away from their roots and gave us perhaps the worst album in their recording catalog. However, a song like “She’s Gone” is a polished gem that stood out from the lot. “It’s Alright,” is the first time we hear Bill Ward sing on a Sabbath album. There was nothing technical or ecstatic about this album. It was a train wreck from the beginning. It is rare if ever any songs are played live from this album. Time can be forgiving, Rhino has given us an extremely extended version of the album with new live songs and 90 minutes of new studio outtakes and alternate versions of the songs recorded. This deep dive is a welcome addition and perhaps salvation to a greatly misunderstood album. This offering is meant for the true Black Sabbath super-fan.

1975 was the peak year for Black Sabbath. Five years in and another four till Ozzy derailed. Sabotage was a strange album with some classic hits but at the same time, the band was going musically in different directions. They were starting to lose their identity. Personally, riff wise I love this album. My favorite song is Symptom of the Universe. It has so many guitar sounds that explore different experimental tunes.

Mac Sabbath: Hybrid of Black Sabbath and McDonald’s

Look what has spawned from greasy bad food and heavy metal. Ronald McDonald fronts a new band called Mac Sabbath. Laced with chords from Black Sabbath standards such as Paranoid become Pair-a-Buns and Iron Man morphs into Frying Pan and last but not least Sweet Leaf becomes Sweet Beef. I am lovin’ it. This is…

Ozzy Screws Up at Grammys

God bless Ozzy even though he thinks God is dead. I think Ozzy should get his own sub titles to every public event. Does the Birmingham native speak English? His introduction of Ringo Starr just got funnier as the least talented Beatle was in search of his own vocal. The only thing I want George…

Black Sabbath: God is Dead

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVfUimq2KeI]We do not know if God is dead, but we know that Black Sabbath is still alive with their new 13 album. Ozzy and the boys have exhumed their past and managed to create a well orchestrated chords of discord. Lyrically Ozzy has matured with this Nietzsche laced themed song. “God is dead. God…
