Black Sabbath Announce Title And Release Date Of New Album

Black Sabbath have announced the title of their new album which will be released this June (exact date TBA).  The original Black Sabbath, minus Bill Ward on drums, recorded the album primarily in Los Angeles, California. Drumming duties were filled in by Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine. Fans are hopeful that the production of Rick Rubin won’t cause the band to stray from the path too much, when it comes to their original sound.
