Black Sabbath Releases First Single ‘God is Dead?’ from Upcoming Studio Album

A nine-minute opus of old school gloom and doom metal is what fans are getting with the first single ‘God is Dead?” by the reunited Black Sabbath. The Rick Rubin released single was released hours ago following a series of YouTube clips profiling the band as they work on their new album. The album, 13 will be the first new LP by the Ozzy fronted version of the band since 1978′s Never Say Die.

The group began working on the album last year with Former Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk after Bill Ward opted not to work on the album. The single harkens back to Sabbath’s roots, posing the question are we alone in a world rotted with chaos. Despite a battle with lymphoma Tony Iommi’s riffs sound heavy as ever and bring into mind “Hole in the Sky”, while Ozzy’s vocals sound strong and equally scary paired with a thundering bass from Geezer Butler.

The new album is to be released in June with European and select North American dates to follow.
