Black Sabbath have been busy. From staring in the finale of CSI, planning their upcoming tour, and picking up the pieces after frontman Ozzy Osbourne relapased, it seems hard to believe that they even have time to work on new material.
But in an interview with NME, Osboune said that new material sounds “very current.”
“The one thing I’m really happy with the new material is that it doesn’t sound like what we’d have done next if I hadn’t left in 1979,” continued Osbourne. “It isn’t like we’ve tried to make ‘Paranoid’ again. It sounds like Black Sabbath, but it’s very current. I mean, with Pro Tools and computers and everything, we could make us sound like anything.”
Geezer Butler said the album was “very depressing” and showcases the “heavier side of Sabbath.”
When has one of their albums NOT shown the heavier side of Sabbath?
Black Sabbath’s 13 is scheduled for release on June 10th. It will be their 19th studio album.
