This is the first Ozzy-fronted Black Sabbath song in a while that is both new and not disappointing. Every hallmark is there: the wickedly awesome riffs, the slow lumbering groove followed by a sudden burst of energy towards the end of the song, and last but not least, Ozzy's wonderful existential examination of whether or not there is a creator above us or just an empty void. It continues the heavy streak the band started with Dio in Heaven & Hell, and i'm sure the rest of the album will be great, if not shake-the-world-off-its-hinges-awesome as their first three albums were. My only complaint is what always happens when Rick Rubin mans the controls for mastering: the Loudness War strikes again. The song is loud in that is begins to clip and distort, so be wary of listening to this with the volume all the way up. Other than that, any self-respecting Black Sabbath fan should find plenty of love here or at least should give it a shot.

Its amazing when I hear Ozzy talking and you just cant make heads or tales of what he is saying, and then you listen to him sing this song which sounds just like the original Black Sabbath band. Amazing.

Unfortunately BIll Ward and the rest of the band (or I should say Sharon Osbourne, perhaps?) could not close a deal to have the original Black Sabbath line up on tour AND (most important) with a new album. "God is dead?" single is a quite good sample of what can we expect from old school Black Sabbath with the godfather of heavy metal, Mr. John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne on vocals. The chemistry between him and Tony Iommi along with Geezer Butler, and whoever is on drums(perhaps historically the weakest link in the band, with all due respect). This song reminded me the last two singles of Black Sabbath with Ozzy on vocals which were simply brutal (check out the Reunion album from 1998, last two tunes of disc 2). As a fun fact, they did not have Bil Ward on drumms on one of those two singles either, by the way. "God is dead?" represents what old school Black Sabbath fans expect from Ozzy and company: doom guitar riffs, spectacular rhythm changes, powerful bass, heavy drums, and of course, Ozzy on vocals. I can't hardly wait to listen to the whole album!!

Excellent! So happy to hear new Sabbath. This song is great and the whole album is really a wonderful, nostalgic throwback. A lot of bands try to return to their roots years later and don't pull it off.... this could have easily been written in the 1970's with some of their other classic hits.

Sounds just like the old sabbath. Except the original drummer Bill Ward. Don't know why almost everybody says it don't sound like sabbath. But if it wasn't for Iommi, they wouldn't sound like Black Sabbath. With the original Vocalist Ozzy, sounds killer. I absolutely love it. (In my opinion)

What else can I say. This is probably my new favorite Black Sabbath song. It sounds straight outta 1972. With Ozzy back in this recording, they are definitely sounding like the Black Sabbath I fell in love with. Rick Rubin really steered them right in going for the old school Sabbath sound.

I've waited my whole life for this. And sabbath doesn't disappoint. Ozzy, Toni, and Geezer together make that amazing sound known as Black Sabbath. And throw in Rick Rubin and amazing things happen. Can't wait for the album to follow this single

After all the hype we finally get to hear the first fruits of the latest Sabbath reunion. It's pretty much what I expected. All this talk about a "return to their early roots" is not on display here. This sounds like a Ozzy solo song featuring Iommi and Geezer. It drags nearly to the point of boring for the first 6 minutes before it delivers a bit of a thrill. Nine minute song and only a short, forgettable guitar solo? Too many verses delivered at a snail's pace by Ozzy. He doesn't sound bad but his age is all too apparent. Ozzy/Sab fanboys and gals will praise it (as they would literally anything coming from this group) but it's really just fair and would sound better edited down to half the length. After repeated listens I must drop this to a 2.
