Black Sabbath

Profilo:
Considered by many to be the first heavy metal band, Black Sabbath was formed in 1968 by Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward in Birmingham, UK.
The band's original name was the Polka Tulk Blues Band (later shortened to Polka Tulk) and later on changed to Earth (12) before becoming Black Sabbath inspired by an Italian horror movie of the same name.
The original line-up lasted until 1979, after which Osbourne was fired and replaced by Ronnie James Dio. The line-up changes would continue, with no line-up remaining intact for consecutive studio releases. Throughout the changes, only Tony Iommi and keyboardist Geoff Nicholls, who also joined the band in 1979, would remain with Black Sabbath, although Nicholls would not always be credited as a full member. In 1997, Iommi, Butler, Ward, and Osbourne reunited, touring and releasing a live album in 1998, although a long-rumored studio release did not appear (the group attempted to record a new album in 2001 with producer Rick Rubin but the sessions were scrapped). After that, the group periodically reunited to tour with Ozzy's "Ozzfest" tour. In 2004, longtime keyboardist Geoff Nicholls was replaced by Adam Wakeman for an Ozzfest tour. No reason was given for the replacement. In 2006, the original line-up was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame.

In 2007, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Ronnie James Dio, and drummer Vinny Appice (who were featured on 1981's "Mob Rules" and 1992's "Dehumanizer") announced that they would tour together as Heaven & Hell (2) (with Iommi, who owns the Black Sabbath name, deciding to keep the Black Sabbath name solely for the original line-up in light of their Rock 'n' Roll HOF induction) to support a Dio-era greatest hits release, which also featured 3 new Dio/Iommi compositions. A brand new live album was released under the Heaven & Hell name that same year, followed by a studio album in 2009.

In 2009, Osbourne sued Iommi over control of the Black Sabbath name. The lawsuit was settled the following year. In late 2011, it was announced that the original line-up would be recording and touring. Shortly, afterward, Bill Ward dropped out, stating he had been given a contract that was "unsignable". The three remaining members opted to continue without him. In 2013, the band released "13", their first studio album with Osbourne in 34 years. The band played their final live show in Birmingham, UK, on February 4, 2017. Although the band has announced that full-scale touring is done, Tony Iommi has stated that the door is still open for future music and possible live appearances.

There are so many more eps released than what’s on discogs I own about 50 more than what they show as released. I’m not talking recent releases either I’m talking from the 70s . Shame because discogs is supposed to be a discography site as well

Black sabbath was the band that most influenced heavy rock in the world. There are some "analysts" out there who want to put it in our understanding that the led zeppelin had the same importance, it didn't!!! besides being a very good band by the way, but they "sucked" a lot of the blues compositions of others (not always admitted) they had a heavy marketing with hotel breakers and etc.. just see 99% of current bands paying tribute to those who ? to the sabbath (see metallica for ex.)

Just about as overrated as they are underrated. A lot of the tracks early on are sloppy and of bad fidelity. Their drummer for at least the first five years was really bad. I am from the school that all great rock bands have great drummers, which is why I easily place Zeppelin far above acts like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and others.
There are reasons why they never get mentioned as GOATs, it is their music and lifespan. Perhaps the only more overrated band is The Beatles.
Cheers.

The remasters done back in 2016 for CD releases are extremely well done. I think these remasters were also used for the 2012 vinyl releases as well. I'd recommend listening to those now over the originals any day.

Could not agree with you more on what you had typed, never cared for the Dio Years....still good but nothing that came close to the first six-seven albums in my opinion.

The first 6 LP's are phenomenal. Black Sabbath created such amazing music they can be considered the Beatles of heavy music. Their influence has now probably outstripped that of Led Zeppelin, in terms of the genres they inadvertently inspired and spawned.
It's hard to conceive of any other heavy band with catchier riffs and a better band chemistry, each original member was so vital to the sound and impact of their music.
Sadly, once Ozzy departed, they failed to hit the same heights, though, as people are often keen to impress on each other, there were some gems hidden amongst the straw of their varied post-Ozzy output.
