Must for all Black Sabbath fanatics around the planet
6 September 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

There was a time when I used to listen exclusively the classics of Black Sabbath's original line-up (Osbourne/Iommi/Butler/Ward). The mere thought of Sabbath without Mr. Osbourne was way too absurd, it was hard to figure out anybody who could actually fill his shoes. However, later on I decided I should at least check out what they created after Ozzy left the band and started to work on his solo career. I'm glad I did.

Naturally the first line-up is the only real, genuine Sabbath but I have every single CD that's released under the name of Black Sabbath and I realized that some are clearly true masterpieces (like the ones with Ronnie James Dio, especially "Heaven and hell"). Even their worst records (Born again, Seventh star, Tyr...) always had something good in 'em: couple of nice lyrics or fine killer riffs from masterful Iommi.

I can also understand people who still can't stand some of the fresher material. For example the incredibly radio-friendly song "Feels good to me" (promo video included in this program) couldn't possibly be further away from the dark and gloomy moods and sounds of early 70's classics like "N.I.B." and "Children of the grave".

The documentary includes also songs like "Die young", "No stranger to love" and "Headless cross" and we hear comments of various members of the band: Tony Iommi, Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, late Cozy Powell, Ian Gillan... (I guess you really don't care but this is a perfect opportunity to reveal that I've shook hands with Ian Gillan. Sorry, had to mention it.)

"The Black Sabbath story Vol.2" is from ten years back and at the end of it camera follows Dio/Iommi/Butler/Appice line-up recording their (wonderful) 1992 album "Dehumanizer". As every fan knows "Cross purposes" and "Forbidden" was released after this documentary and then of course there was the long-desired reunion of the original Sabbath (I will probably always remember their 1999 gig in Finland as the finest concert experience of my life).

I'm very thankful that this excellent and well-made documentary as well as "The Black Sabbath story Vol.1" was recently released in Dvd format. There's lots of good extra material and new interviews too so I guess there's no need to mention that this is definitely must stuff for any Black Sabbath fan.
