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

Seventh Star is an excellent 80's style Tony Iommi solo metal album.
clayopalstar
Full of soul and with miles of range, Hughes's powerful voice can't be denied on these tracks, whether he's belting out a hard rocker or crooning a slow song.
J. Hill
Don't be silly like I was and let the name Black Sabbath scare you off from listening to it.

All is well with the ongoing reissue program except for the fact that the live disc included here is of HORRENDOUS sound quality and prospective buyers should've been told so in the advertising and packaging. It's no more than an audience bootleg and that's a real shame.

Seventh Star is an excellent 80's style Tony Iommi solo metal album. Calling it Black Sabbath backfired as a sales incentive, angering many Black Sabbath fans who would have been more open minded to the records different styles if it had been labeled ONLY as a Tony Iommi solo project. And it would still be long forgotten without the excellent soulful vocals of Glenn Hughes, "The Voice Of Rock". He makes the average songs good, and the good ones incredible! Heart Like A Wheel, Danger Zone, Angry Heart and In Memory are standout tracks because they DON"T sound like Black Sabbath. A unique record in the 'Sabbath timeline.
It's the bonus live tracks that dissapointed me so badly. Glenn was sick/in a fight and got his nose broken/having drug issues (or all of the above) just before the Seventh Star tour, and was in no shape vocally to perform. Glenn stuck it out anyway and sang on March 21, 1986 in Cleveland. It was rough in parts, but the show went over well. After that, Glen fell apart more each performance, and was replaced by Ray Gillen within days.
The live bonus tracks feature Ray instead of Glenn on vocals, and that's where things go wrong. Whether you're a Ray Gillen fan or not,these live versions are nothing like the Seventh Star studio tracks! The first (and best) live show that Glenn Hughes performed with Black Sabbath (Cleveland 3/21/86) should have been remastered and added as the bonus tracks... they are the only ones that compliment the Seventh Star release and would have truly let you hear and judge this unique "Black Sabbath" lineup live before it's brief time was up.

Seventh Star is a real anomaly in the Black Sabbath album catalogue. The first thing that makes this album stand out as odd is the long title. The name "Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi" made more than a few Sabbath fans raise an eyebrow. The cover itself is less than extraordinary with a very blah photo of Tony in a leather jacket. At first glace, this album looks like it's going to be bad...but thankfully it isn't.

Apparently after the disappointing release of 1983's Born Again the band went their separate ways and began to work on solo projects. Iommi got a new group together (including ex-Deep Purple vocalist Glen Hughes) and began working on a solo project. Sadly due to studio pressure, Iommi was force to release his solo album under the Black Sabbath name. I guess he got back at the studio by adding the moniker "featuring Tony Iommi" under the Sabbath name. This could also be a way to warn fans that this isn't a true Sabbath album.

Because this technically is Tony Iommi's first solo album it shouldn't come as a surprise that this does not sound exactly like Black Sabbath. So it doesn't sound like Sabbath...but does that make it bad? Oh hell no as this album is actually quit good. The music is far from the doomy style Sabbath material and is more upbeat straight ahead 80's heavy metal.

The album opens with the fast paced rocker In for the Kill. I will admit I am not familiar with Glenn Hughes's vocals when he sang for Deep Purple but he fits the music well. A dang fine voice if you ask me. No Stranger to Love is a power ballad and the albums one single. For a ballad this isn't bad and I actually like it quit a bit. Turn to Stone is another power rocker that has a wonderful 80's style metal ring to it.

After the "Born Again" tour ended, Ian Gillan and Bev Bevan took off, leaving Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler yet again in a bad spot, needing to rebuild their band, Black Sabbath. An attempt was made in 84 with the return of Bill Ward, and new-comer vocalist David Donato, but that lasted only for a few photo shoots, and maybe a couple of rehearsals before falling apart. Then in 85 the original Black Sabbath reunited for "Live Aid", and there were rumors of them reuniting for good. Thank God that didn't happen!

Iommi and Butler branched off (or one could say that Butler left Sabbath, and that's the way I see it) to do solo projects. However, Sabbath still owed WB Records a 'Black Sabbath' record, plus WB execs, after hearing what Iommi had recorded with bassist Dave "The Beast" Spitz, drummer Eric Singer, and vocalist Glenn Hughes (one-time bassist/vocalist for Deep Purple), they urged Iommi to release it under the Black Sabbath name. Something that he would have been a fool not to have done! I've just always hated the 'featuring Tony Iommi' part under the Sabbath name. It was (and still is) a 'catch-22' situation: If it would have been released as a Tony Iommi solo album, critics and fans alike would have bashed it, calling it a Sabbath knock-off, and released as a Sabbath album, it was bashed for not being released as a solo album.

However, the album did pretty well, and Sabbath were born again yet again! Opening with the fierce and heavy and fast "In For the Kill", they let you know from the get go they are back with a vengeance. From the start I was hooked immediately. It took me a while to get used to the whole new 'double bass drum' sound of "Turn to Stone", love the title track, have been back and forth on "Danger Zone", and the rest I love as well.
