BLACK SABBATH UK
One of the biggest hard rock bands ever, and without question the most influential one. Few are the subgenres of hard rock that don't derive from Black Sabbath. The Birmingham behemoths changed the map of hard music for ever. Tony Iommi's detuned, ultra-heavy riffs, Geezer Butler's distorted, pulsating basslines, Bill Ward's explosive drumming, Ozzy Osbourne's unique, wailing vocals... The combination was totally unprecedented. In 1970-78 this lineup released eight albums, filled with dark and at times controversial classics. ”Black sabbath”, ”Paranoid”, ”Iron man”, ”Children of the grave” and many more.
After the original band broke up, Black Sabbath still kept creating stellar music, fronted by such legendary singers as Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes and Tony Martin. Still, the fans were obviously excited beyond belief when the classic lineup eventually reunited. And finally, in 2013, their comeback album ”13” was released. The success actually surpassed everybody's expectations – and at this point in time, we announce Black Sabbath to SRF 2014. Which will also be the only Swedish appearance that year for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and drummer Tommy Clufetos.
