Black Sabbath stream God Is Dead?
Black Sabbath have released a stream of their track God Is Dead? Hear it below.
It’s the first full-length piece to appear from highly-anticipated album 13, their first with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978.
It was produced by Rick Rubin and features Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk in place of Bill Ward, who bowed out of the reunion last year saying he hadn’t been offered a contact he regarded as “signable.”
Guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with cancer soon after work began, but has continued to battle through and recently credited Osbourne with forcing him to see a doctor in time for the disease to be brought under control. The vocalist, meanwhile, this week admitted he’d started drinking and taking drugs again, but had stopped in March.
Sabbath kick off their touring duties in New Zealand on Saturday. Iommi says: “We’re finally out on the road and remembering what jet lag really is this far away from home. In the meantime, we’ve been doing some press and had an album-listening party. Seems to be well received, which is great news!”
13 is released on June 10. The band tour the UK in December.
