So basically, drummers are unreasonable selfish cunts?

I've already told them I'll play the gig for free, keep checking my phone to make sure it's turned on but not had the call yet.

Oh wow, I hadn't read that statement from Geezer. The whole thing is really bizarre then.

Bill Ward has responded!

The whole thing is just daft now, grown men arguing via online statements.

Maybe Sabbath could get a hologram of Bill Ward to play.

Hahahaha. Ridiculous. Whatever. I've been listening to the Ozzy era Sabbath stuff recently. Looking forward to the show nonetheless.

Yeah, as far as I'm concerned they've still got 3 out of 4 of the original line-up, that's still more original members than Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, The Who, Guns 'n' Roses, Queen, Motörhead, and probably just about any other band that's been around for over 20 years.... It's still gonna be Iommi, Butler and Osbourne playing the classic Sabbath tunes, that's gonna enough for me.

If they hadn't called it a 'Reunion' tour in the first place and just simply called it 'Black Sabbath' then there wouldn't have been anywhere near as much of an issue. The main thing that's a shame about it all is that given their collective age, and Iommi's current health, this may well be the last chance the four of them will get to play in the band together.

I'll do better than that. I'll give you three. I have to. Otherwise, you won't get the full spectrum of Megaherz as a band.

I say that because over the course of their history, Megaherz have had three singers. The reason why I asked you about Megaherz in the first place was because you mentioned Eisbrecher. Alexx Wesselsky and Noel Pix, members of Eisbrecher (lead singer and lead guitarist, respectively), were both originally members of Megaherz (as lead singer and keyboardist). They left in 2003 due to creative differences. Anyway, here's some old-skool Megaherz.



After Wesselsky left, Megaherz acquired Matthias Elsholz. Unfortunately, this was short-lived, as he only did it for one album, "5," before leaving. Here's a song from that album. It's the first one I ever heard by Megaherz.



After that, they acquired their current vocalist, Lex Wohnhaas. Here's some more recent Megaherz. I'm giving you the version with orchestra, simply because I think this song sounds so much better that way.



Enjoy! ^_^

New Black Sabbath album artwork released, plus a snippet of music... I like what I hear so far.


..Hang on, that artwork design looks familiar.

I don't want to have high expectations, but HIGH EXPECTATIONS for new Sabbath.

I really want it to sound like Sabbath did in the early days, back when they had a more bluesy/doomy feel to them, which is what the band have hinted at, recapturing the spirit of the 70s. I can't see it quite meeting those standards though, Ozzy can't sing the way he used to (Sounds like there's a lot of reverb/effects on his vocals in that clip), but I still have every faith that it'll be awesome.

Megadeth have released the cover for their upcoming album.

It's a little bit, hmm, what's the word I'm looking for? ... shit.

Of course it's the music that really matters. Apparently David "wakka wakka" Draiman from Disturbed makes guest vocal appearances, and there's also been talk of Willie Nelson guesting. Why do I sense we have another 'LuLu' on our hands with this one.

Ozzy is talking up the new Sabbath album like crazy. Can't say I'm holding out too much hope for it, but I've been listening to a lot of the 70s Sabbath stuff again.

I've loved pretty much everything Sabbath/Iommi has done, including the 'seemingly airbrushed from history' Tony Martin era, so I'm optimistically confident I'll enjoy this album. Whether it lives up to the hype and stands up by comparison to the earlier albums is another question altogether.
