Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath

Published on 16 March 2019 by

      This 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 Charts 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. According to AllMusic’s Steve Huey, The band marks “the birth of heavy metal as we now know it”. In his opinion, the album “transcends its clear roots in blues-rock and psychedelia to become something more”
to Rolling Stone magazine, “the album that arguably invented heavy metal was built on thunderous blues-rock”.Sputnikmusic’s Mike Stagno notes that Black Sabbath’s combined elements of rock, jazz and blues, with heavy distortion created one of the most influential albums in the history of heavy metal. In retrospect, Black Sabbath has been lauded as perhaps the first true heavy metal album.It has also been credited as the first record in the stoner rockand goth genres.
