About Black Sabbath
Formed in 1968 in Birmingham, Black Sabbath went on to earn worldwide acclaim as one of the world’s greatest heavy metal bands.
Their music gained notoriety as much as their off and on-stage antics with frontman Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tommy Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward comprising the original line-up.
Throughout the years the group have released nineteen studio albums. Their final was delivered in June 2013. Titled 13, the album charted at No.1 across the world, including in the UK, Canada and the US. The collection was the band’s first studio album with Ozzy Osbourse since 1978’s Never Say Die!, marking a huge moment for the band.
Amongst the band’s accolades, Black Sabbath have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, landed two Grammy Awards and have been on countless Greatest Artists Of All Time Lists.
