In a recent video interview with NME, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne discussed the future of the reunited band, including dropping the news that the band has recorded 15 new songs for an upcoming album. Both bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi expanded upon the creative process, saying that producer Rick Rubin put on their first album for them and told them to imagine it was 1969. He followed that up by asking, “What would you do next?” Iommi said that this definitely influenced the sound of the new material, saying that “…it’s taken on the flavor of the old stuff…but with a different look to it.”
However, the Black Sabbath reunion is not necessarily as complete as most fans would like. Drummer Bill Ward has officially pulled out of the reunion, citing incredible difficulties with the Black Sabbath management as the issue. You can read his statement here.
Alright Black Sabbath fans, chime in here. Do you think Rick Rubin has helped the band reach a place where musical magic might happen or are we gonna get a lackluster release?
