There’s something about buying up classic artists and music by those bands who influenced you. Black Sabbath are, really obviously, such a major influence on everything that it’s important to know the history.
I saw a Black Sabbath cover band at a venue in Gillingham, the name of which escapes me and I will enter it here  once I remember. I wasn’t really expecting much other than an enjoyable evening, this was likely somewhere around 2004. I had too much beer and might have felt a little rough but the main memory of that evening was just how heavy Black Sabbath’s music was. It was slow and hard with excellent grinding riffs. Far better than listening to them on tapes from the mid eighties.
I’ve probably only listened to this album twice or so. I can’t remember much about it. It’s probably really good.
