One of the greatest heavy metal bands is hanging it up for good this time.
After an incredible 49 years, Black Sabbath has officially called it quits. The band – featuring frontman Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, and drummer Bill Ward – returned to their hometown of Birmingham, England on Saturday, February 4th for what they’d promised would be their last ever show.
On Tuesday, the metal icons made their breakup official by posting a visual obituary on Facebook with the hashtag #TheEnd, CoS reports.
Sabbath surprised us all with their absolutely astounding 13, their 2013 album that proved the band was as relevant as ever; even at their old age, Sabbath could still rock with the best of them. Their legacy is one of legend, continuing what The Beatles had started with their doom and gloom track “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” off their 1969 album Abbey Road. Sabbath went on to inspire all of modern rock from Pantera to Type O Negative and even Disturbed (just to name a few). They are, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most important bands to have ever existed.
