    ...and so began Tony Iommi's infamous "Devils tritone" sound that would change the face of Rock-n-Roll music forever........ 45 years ago

    Black Sabbath is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band Black Sabbath. Released on 13 February 1970 in the United Kingdom and on 1 June 1970 in the United States, the album reached number eight on the UK Albums Chart and number 23 on the Billboard charts.

    Although it was poorly received by most contemporary music critics, Black Sabbath has since been credited with significantly influencing the development of heavy metal music.

    I remember putting on the headphones, cranking up the volume, and listening to that song 'Black Sabbath' for the first time ever on the stereo .... Scared the living shit out of me .... I had to turn it off for awhile & go watch The Brady Bunch to calm down

    I've never seen anyone as clueless as this irrelevant prick.

    Back in the early 70s, my sister wanted a record that contained the song 'backstabbers' for Christmas. My parents, not being hip with music, bought her a Black Sabbath album :facepalm:. Somewhere in a photo album is a picture of my then 10 year old sister holding up a copy of Vol. 4 :jj:
