PostSubject: How is there not a thread about the new Sabbath track yet?   Fri Apr 19, 2013 11:47 am

Just to deny iheartradio any hits for their awful audio-watermarking, here's a Youtube rip.




My reaction is this. Instrumentally, it's vintage Sabbath. It could easily have fit on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Vol. 4 without much effort, and I'm perfectly fine with that. When they got back together I didn't want a revolutionary Sabbath, I wanted the Sabbath I grew up with.

As for Ozzy's vocals, which were always gonna be the make or break-factor, I'm fine with them. They have that godawful filter that he's used for the past 15-20 years, but the delivery is pretty solid and I'm really liking the vocal melody (what little there is).

I have no way to be objective about this, since Sabbath was essentially my first favorite band. I listened the shit out of everything Black Sabbath album with Ozzy on it in during my teen years. That said, I really was prepared to be disappointed. But so far I'm okay with this, and with a better quality rip, I'm thinking I could grow to love this.

Still wondering how Ozzy's gonna fare live.

I wanted to post about this but for some reason I couldn't get on the site yesterday. I'm so psyched for the new Sabbath album Very Happy

That riff in the last 2 minutes or so is fucking awesome.

I prefer the chorus riff, to be honest, but yeah, it's a good one. I think Geezer's bass work to the finishing riff is pretty kickass though.

Pretty solid. You won't find a bigger fan than I of needlessly long songs, but I did think it was a little too drawn out.

Should honestly just cut the first 4 minutes or so. The ending of the song is fine, but there is no reason for this to be 9 minutes long.

And honestly, I think what my friend sums this up pretty well:

"Imagine this song was not written/performed by Black Sabbath, but some local band at a bar or something. Would you care?"

Unfortunately, no. I wouldn't. The only reason anyone cares about this is because it's Tony Iommi, Ozzy, and Geezer.

He has a point, but it's not going to make me enjoy it any less Metal

Only partially liked the last third of the song, cuz I hated Ozzy the entire time. First third is completely useless. I feel comfortable ignoring the rest, but wouldn't shun it if it were playing.

Kind of a dumb argument.

Imagine that Rime of the Ancient Mariner was written and performed by kurt in bra and panties while standing in a kiddie pool filled with milk.

People like the song because it's written and performed by a band they enjoy.

Yeah, to be fair if something not that good comes out from a well known band the one guy that likes it will say: "If this was just some random local band without any expectations everyone would love it" While like here if a well known band releases something that most people like the one guy that doesn't like it says: "It's not that good. People only care because it's so and so." I guess you can't have it both ways.

I guess most people want more of what they're familiar with.

This sounds more like something off of Mob Rules than it does classic Sabbath. I.e. mediocre and mostly not good.

And Ozzy is fucking terrible.

And the last riff sounds like they're trying to mask the fairies wear boots riff like nobody is going to notice. This is disappointing. Not that I figured they'd actually be writing this for anything more than a money grab, but still I feel slightly let down.
