  • What album do you think has Bill Wards best drumming?

    Thats tough, mine is either Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality or Never Say Die!

    First Album "Black Sabbath" there are little blues inspiration.

    But i think Hand of Doom is that song he do the best drumming in, if we think about his kit.
    You work your life away and what do they give?
    You're only killing yourself to live?

      IMO the album Paranoid has Ward's best drumming

        That is a tough question, but I will have to go with the first album. Although he is absolutely killer on War Pigs! Never really realized how physical he got on that song until I seen him on DVD. He really kicks butt on that song.

          Everytime he sat down to do a new album. Unlike my observation of Vinnie Appice, this IS a compliment. I love Bill's work.
          The blind men shout "Let the creatures out, we'll show the unbelievers."
          The napalm screams of human flames, of a prime time Belsen feast ... yeah!
          As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy.
          We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

            The debut had I think Bill's most explosive and diverse percussion.

              I'd vote for a single track - Cornucopia.

                Vol. 4
                Its an easy choice.
                Just listen to the drums in Under the Sun, Cornucopia, & Wheels of Confusion.

                  Paranoid was perhaps his best, but when you look at it Vol. 4 was phenomenal too. With Paranoid you have War Pigs (his best, in my opinion), Iron Man, Hand of Doom and Fairies Wear Boots, but with Vol. 4 you have Under the Sun, Cornucopia and Snowblind, which are all incredibly powerful in terms of the percussion.

                  Bill Ward is just a phenomenal drummer - I can't think of any drummer I like more than him. His style of play, his beats, his demeanor, all together make him one of the best drummers alive.

                  We love you Bill!

                        Paranoid, predominantly, to my ears. Sabotage is runners-up.

                            Bill Ward is my favourite drummer of all time, no one come's close to him for me, he does what Bob Dylan does with lyrics, put's in thing's when they don't need to be put in and make's it sound just amazing, good example's of him doing that is in Under The Sun, listen to the Drums at 2:30 and on, it's just too good. Another example Symtpom of the Universe just out this world. Best album I would think is Black Sabbath (check out The Wizard, for the first album that's just out this world!) Paranoid, Heaven and Hell, Sabotage. Every one is really good ...

                              When I saw the thread title I thought of "Cornucopia" and "Never say Die" as his best work!
