Black Sabbath are done.

Black Sabbath haben bereits am Dienstag auf Facebook nach 49 Jahren ihr endgültiges Ende bekanntgegeben. Das letzte Studioalbum hatten sie 2013 veröffentlicht, Im Februar hatten sie ihren letzten Auftritt in ihrer Heimatstadt Birmingham. Die Erfinder des Metal are no more, aber auch für Ozzy und Iommi und Geezer und Ward gilt natürlich: The Gods of Metal never die. R.I.P. 🤘

That note puts the final nail in the coffin of a 49-year long career. Crazed frontman Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, and drummer Bill Ward launched their legendary career with their self-titled debut in 1970. They went through numerous lineup changes until 2006, when they disbanded for the first time. The original quartet got back together in 2011, but Ward pulled out of the reunion tour and was replaced by Tommy Clufetos.

Over the span of their time together, Black Sabbath released 19 studio albums, including Paranoid, Master of Reality, and Vol 4. Songs from many of their records were highlighted on their final End of the Road Tour, and they fittingly closed out their career with a performance of “Paranoid”.

Hier ihr letzter Song – „Paranoid“ – vom letzten Konzert und ein paar weitere Meilensteine:
