Biography

Black Sabbath is credited with creating heavy metal. The success of their first two albums - Black Sabbath and Paranoid - marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. Not until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term “heavy metal” enter the popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided.

Customer Reviews

It's perhaps the most creative album by any band to come out of the 70s.
bunnyeater
Gorgeous instrumental! "The Writ" is a great song as well with some of Ozzys very best vocals and a very beautiful middle section to the song!
SaucerfulOfAnimals
Master Of Reality - this is the prototypical Black Sabbath album, and their best until Sabotage topped it.

There are a few things I gotta say about Sabotage, Black Sabbath's sixth album: First, it's one of my favorites. Probably my favorite over Paranoid just because I've heard Paranoid way too many times in my life. Secondly, that this is the decline of Sabbath. No doubts about that. If you think differently and are a huge fan of Technical Ecstasy, well... you're insane! This was the last time that Sabbah were all on the same page. Sure there are little bits and pieces of greatness after Sabotage, but very little. Sabotage is a grand and glorious rock epic! This is probably the only album that Sabbath put out that flowed perfectly! Where they started to experiment on Vol. 4 and Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage is the culmination of all that. Whoa! Taking a two-year hiatus from touring and recording will do that to you. Everything falls into place. Also, what a great album cover. Ozzy wearing a dress and those really cool giant-heeled suede Elton John boots. Bill Ward in his red spandex pants with his checkered underwear showing through. Geezer with a cane. The 70s! Wow!

Hole In The Sky - Great song! I'm looking through a hole in the sky, I'm seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie.... Great lyrics Great riffs. The productin value was probably Sabbath's best. Rocking!

Don't Start (Too Late) - Iommi finally did it, he made his little instrumental show-off pieces fit into the rest of the album without throwing it for a loop! Cool little 50 second accoustic blurb that heads right into one of Sabbath last classic cuts.

Symptom Of The Universe - All out metal goodness! This is one is one of those signaure Sabbath tunes that you will alway remember. Yeaaaaaahhhh!

Megalomania - Sprawling! That's is what this song is: sprawling!

Some Black Sabbath fans think Ozzy and the gang hit their creative peak with their fifth album, "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," thus their sixth album ("Sabotage") was the start of the group's decline. But other fans loved "Sabotage" and believe that it showed that the band were evolving and maybe even maturing. This reviewer is in the latter camp. Granted, when compared to Sabbath's first five records (especially "Master of Reality"), this album is not very dark or gloomy, and it actually kind of sounds "uplifting." (This brighter sound was made possible because of guitarist Tony Iommi, who brought in "orchestral"-like instruments, including keyboards and even a choir in the song "Supertzar.") But this is still Black Sabbath; "Sabotage" is still a heavy metal album, so the guitars are still very much involved. After all, the chug and churn guitar lick on "Symptom Of The Universe" is quite possibly thrash's first ever riff! The first track, "Hole In The Sky," is super catchy and has a memorable main riff. "Don't Start (Too Late)" is about fifty seconds long, and it's thought of by some people as a filler track, but I think Tony's acoustic string arrangement is very pretty in this song. Track four, "Megalomania," is ten minutes long. It begins as a slow, depressing ballad, but it becomes heavy by the end. The next song, "The Thrill of It All," is highlighted by a bluesy guitar solo, and track six, "Supertzar," is an instrumental with an ominous use of the aforementioned choir. "Am I Going Insane (Radio)" has a catchy sing along ("tell me people...am I going insane?") and some creepy, maniacal laughter too boot.Read more ›

What can i say except..AMAZING. Sabbath are such a legendary band, they opened so many doors and influenced so many bands through out their run and even still today. I know that Iommi is one of my faovrite guitarists out there, his riffs are just so heavy, he just bangs the hell out of the guitar. He is one of my biggest musical influences.
But anyway, Sabatoge in my opinion is so amazing because Ozzys voice is just more wailier on this album. Along with the first album. No one can match his voice. The singing on "Hole in the Sky" and "Megalomania" just sends chills up my back everytime. Great lyrics as well, just read along to "Megalomania", you will be amazed. The tracks:
Hole in The Sky (10/10)- Its just epic, for an opener to the album you listen to it and think "Good god! If this is just the first song the whole album must be amazing!" and it is. Tonys guitar is just massive.
Don't StartToo Late(7/10)-The acoustic work is very relaxing and easy to listen to, just a quick instrumental song that leads into Symptom of The Universe.
Symptom of The Universe(10/10)- The guitar riff in this song is the epitome of what Hard Rock should sound like. Iommis fills and harmonies are amazing, with the massive pumping bass of Geezer Butler in the back. Just an amazing, hard rocking song. Ozzys yell is quite the yell as well.
Megalomania(10/10)- Wow, this is one helluva powerful song.Ozzys voice on this track just gives me this feeling each time i listen to it. And the acoustic guitar behind the main riff of the electric works so well. And then the drums come in and Iommi just balls to the wall plays this massive riff. Amazing song.
