On the same day that marks the 43rd anniversary of the release of the original Black Sabbath album, the band has released a new promotional video for the forthcoming “13” album. It shows Tony, Geezer, & Ozzy in studio with Brad Wilk working on the new album. Check it out below:
Some thoughts and remarks on the video:
- I tried to find out when the interview segments were recorded, but the person I asked wasn’t sure – thought it was when they were still writing, but admitted to not being sure exactly.
- I also was asked on Twitter who it was behind the board in the video. After asking around, it’s Mike Exeter, who has worked with Tony on several other projects. That being the Heaven & Hell “The Devil You Know” album, Tony’s own “Fused” and “96 DEP Sessions” albums, so that’s a GOOD thing.
- It also shows what might be a couple other track names. That brings the known list of track names to 5 with “God is Dead”, “Dear Father”, “End of the Beginning”, “Loner”, “Age of Reason” being known to at least be working titles, if not formal final track titles. We’ll see soon enough. I expect the press in advance of the release to start before too long. This video is probably the first step in that.
Anyway, let me know what you think of the video. Hell of a tease there when Brad does the drum intro, and then the video cuts out. Anyone else go “DAMMIT” at that moment? :)
